“Classic beauties like Jane Russel, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor maintained their flawless, smooth skin with this manual exfoliation method called Dermaplaning. Get that red carpet ready glow with this effective and utterly state-of-the-art way to exfoliate your skin.”
If you haven’t experienced Dermaplaning yet, then you are missing out. Medical Esthetics by Katie has been offering Dermaplaning Facials for years to clients from New Westminster, Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby and Surrey. Katie is also a Dermaplaning Instructor in BC and teaches local spa professionals how to safely perofrm this advanced treatment in their spas and medspas. This is a cutting edge method of exfoliation that consists of using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
It is a favourite advanced skin rejuvenation treatment in the entertainment industry, especially among models and actresses. Why? Because, it also eliminates that annoying vellus hair (peach fuzz) that cakes up in makeup and which can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras.
Slough off dead skin cells and peach fuzz for picture perfect skin. Dermaplaning, LED, light enzyme, or corrective peel, stem cell nano infusion, and soothing finishing mask will leave your skin feeling like a movie star. Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels.
**Not ideal for 1st clients, oily/acne prone skin, nickle allergies or coarse/dark facial hair

Who Is Dermaplaning Good For?
Dermaplaning is beneficial for clients over 30 from a range of skin types, and can address a variety of complexion concerns. As dead skin cells are removed, the face is deeply yet gently exfoliated for a rejuvenated glow. Dermaplaning can diminish fine lines, improve hyperpigmentation, and treat dry skin. It is also a great option for people with chemical sensitivities, women who can't wax, laser or thread and women who are pregnant or nursing.
One of the many benefits of dermaplaning is its ability to refine skin in order to improve the effectiveness of skin care treatments and products. When used in preparation for other skin care procedures, such as corrective peels and microneedling, skin that has been treated with dermaplaning will allow for more effective treatment.
