Dermaplaning is a highly effective exfoliation procedure that targets the epidermis in order to remove dead skin cells and fine hair for smoother and more radiant skin. Dermaplaning is recommended only on the face, and for all skin types, especially acne prone skin.

How is it performed?
Dermaplaning begins with the doctor or trained medical esthetician using a special razor to lift the patient’s vellus hair to allow for deeper penetration of products. The exfoliation products are then applied and patient’s skin is quickly rejuvenated.

About TCA Peels

Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) is a skin resurfacing treatment that targets the top layers of the skin. It is considered a medium-depth peel, and it can be performed at different levels, depending on each patient’s needs. TCA peels remove dead skin cells, unveiling a smoother and more radiant glowing skin. TCA peels aid in softening fine lines and lightening hyperpigmented areas. They also help improve the tone and texture of the skin, as well as acne scarring. The duration of the peeling varies with every skin type, and strength of the peel.

How is It Performed?
The patient’s face is prepared for the peel, and the peel is then applied. The skin will start to peel 48 to 72 hours after the treatment, and the peeling will last a few days. For maximum results it is recommended to repeat the treatment every 3 to 6 weeks until the desired result is achieved.
