Dermaplaning Facial in New Westminster, BC


“Get that red carpet ready glow with that effective and utterly state-of-the-art way to exfoliate the skin.  Using a specialized instrument that works to gently remove fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dull, dead skin cells.  Followed by a light corrective peel or enzyme treatment to instantly reveal brilliant skin.”


If you haven’t experienced Dermaplane yet, then you are missing out. Medical Esthetics by Katie is excited to introduce Dermaplaning Facial to New Westminster and Burnaby. Dermaplane is a fast but very effective non-invasive treatment that leaves your skin impeccably smooth! 

Dermaplaning is a gentle medical skin treatment that is performed by using a surgical blade that gently scrapes the outermost layers of the epidermis, therefore, ridding it of dead skin cells, impurities and debris. This treatment is an excellent way to exfoliate the skin and to regenerate new skin cells thus leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant.


What are the Benefits?
  • Remove light surface wrinkling
  • Smooth acne scarring
  • Improve skin texture
  • Even out skin tone
  • Help to unblock blackheads,
  • Reduce the pores size
  • Remove facial hair (hair does not grow back thicker)
  • Generate new healthy cell


What sanitation and safety measures are taken?
  • Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to me, and I do take appropriate measures to ensure sanitation and safety.
  • A new, sterilized surgical blade is used for each client and properly disposed of after each use.
  • I wear non-latex gloves during the Dermaplaning process.
  • All instruments (as with all of my treatments) are cleaned and sanitized according to Fraser Health regulations. During the Dermaplaning process, it is imperative that the client be still and not talk. Prior to beginning the treatment, we will determine a “signal‟ to let me know if you need to move, speak, sneeze, cough, etc., so that I may pause for safety.
  • It’s very important that your cell phone be turned off so as not to be a distraction to you. No sudden movements please.
  • No moles, skin tags, or other skin growths will be removed during the Dermaplaning process – those areas (if they exist) will be avoided and worked around.




  • Can I get Dermaplaning if I’m pregnant?

    Yes, Dermaplaning is perfectly safe if you’re pregnant or nursing and want a deep exfoliation without the more aggressive options like chemical peels. It helps keep your skin clean and clear of superficial hyperpigmentation that can occur during hormonal fluctuations as well.

  • What’s the difference between shaving and Dermaplaning?

    People often think that they are one in the same. They are not.  Dermaplaning is performed by trained Medical Esthetic Professionals using a surgical scalpel on tautly stretched skin. Most razors have two blades that much duller than a surgical blade. Dermaplaning requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region and resurfaces skin on a much deeper and more effective level than shaving.

  • Can Dermaplaning be performed in the same visit as a Chemical Peel or Enzyme Treatment?

    A Chemical Peel or Enzyme Treatment is done immediately after dermaplaning and is an excellent way to make sure that the Chemical Peel or Enzyme Treatment penetrates deeper and more evenly. They go great together and I recommend the combination for optimal results.
