Derma-Peel (100 min)
Combine Dermaplaning with AlumierMD’s Renew 30 Peel to gently remove your skin’s outer layers, making the peel’s chemical solution far more effective. It is perfect for sensitive skin types, with minimal downtime.
Dermaplaning is a gentle yet highly effective, manual exfoliation treatment used to remove dead skin cells, deep-seated dirt, oil, peach fuzz, and unwanted facial hair. A build-up of skin cells and hair on your face can make your complexion appear dull, dry and can increase your chances of breakouts due to clogged pores.
Without dead skin cells out of the way, skin care products will easily absorb into the skin and penetrate more deeply and effectively. Make-up application will be smooth and flawless because you are starting with a cleaner base that is free of congestion.

As your esthetician, I will perform a thorough skin analysis prior to your first dermaplaning. If dermaplaning is not appropriate, you will be informed during this session and an alternative treatment may be recommended instead.
If dermaplaning is not contraindicated, maximum results are obtained by participating in a series of treatments plus following a home care regimen. I will review your current daily regimen and skincare products, advise you on which products you should continue to use, and recommend any additional products or changes to your regimen to enhance your desired outcome.
As your esthetician, I take every precaution to ensure that your skin is well hydrated and calm following each session. However, you may experience excessive dryness or even some peeling between sessions, which may or may not be normal. Always contact me if you have any concerns. More sensitive skin may experience some redness after the first couple of sessions. This normally goes away after 2 to 3 hours. Dermaplaning may cause minor superficial abrasions which may not appear until a day or two following your treatment. If this should occur, please contact me so that
I can do a post-treatment follow up with you. After your treatment, SPF 30+ MUST be worn at all times. Tanning beds should never be used. You are making an investment in your skin: therefore, it is to your benefit to continue to protect it long after your series of treatments is completed.

Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleansing, professional exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning followed by a clay mask, a hydrating restorative mask, a collagen infusing treatment and finished with skincare suited to your unique skin.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
What happens after the treatment?
After Dermaplaning we will apply a soothing mask if you’d like. Following the procedure you’re immediately able to resume your normal activities, although you may have some redness.
Anyone who has unwanted facial vellus hair and is seeking an improvement in skin texture can benefit from Dermaplaning. It is safe for almost all skin types, including those with acne, rosacea or sensitive skin.
Will the facial hair come back darker?
No. Your facial hair will come back exactly as it was prior to a Dermaplaning treatment. It will not darken or become coarse.
How long do the results last?
Most patients will benefit from having a Dermaplaning treatment on a monthly basis or every 6 weeks. By doing so, you are removing stubborn, dead skin cells that have built up over the past few weeks. You will see the best results if you keep up with regular maintenance treatments and have a good skin care routine at home.
Is there any downtime with Dermaplaning?
There is absolutely no downtime involved with a Dermaplaning facial treatment. You can immediately go back to your normal routine after leaving the spa. You can also apply products and make-up after a treatment. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
