Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is safe, and relaxing exfoliation treatment that utilizes a surgical blade. The blade is worked along the skin using a special feather stroke technique.   The process removes the dead drab layer of skin along with unwanted peach fuzz leaving the skin smooth, supple and totally radiant. The treatment is 45 minutes and includes an enzyme treatment and high dose of skin drenching nutrients.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Your SKN Practitioner will carefully exfoliate the top layer of the skin with a specialized surgical blade. The process removes dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and stimulates new skin development.   Great news is there is no downtime.  You can immediately return to work with your smooth healthy, radiant skin.  It is important to wear sunblock as you have had a very thorough exfoliation.

  • Anyone who wants more refined, smooth skin with a glow.
  • Dry and/ rough skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pregnant and nursing woman who cannot undergo chemical peels
  • Great way to remove peach fuzz on the face

Frequently Asked Questions Back to top

+ Can Dermaplaning be combined with other treatments?

Dermaplaning is frequently used in combination with other skin treatments for enhanced results. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and stimulates the surface of the skin it can be used prior to light peels.

We recommend having this treatment in combination with a cosmetic acupuncture session. Your skin will be be smooth, and bright and your body will be relaxed and rejuvenation.

+ Will my hair grow back thicker?

Many clients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

+ How frequently can I have these treatments?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 4 weeks.

"I highly recommend SKN Clinic. I've been visiting them for years, though not consistently but I'm not always in town. When I am, this is my spot. They are top of the line in Vancouver and their pricing is not outrageous. You will feel wonderful.

The staff ladies are authentic and kind and all have that natural glow as well. They are organized with your file and history so they know where you're at with everything and can make recommendations.

The products are beautiful and effective, high quality actives on the more natural side.

They obviously really care about their business and the clinic itself is very zen so all in all a perfect way to relax or rejuvenate, whichever you need!"
