Dermaplane Facial


Dermaplane facial is used to treat deep acne scars with a hand-held instrument called a dermatome. The dermatome looks like an electric razor and has an oscillating blade that moves back and forth to evenly “skim” off the surface layers of skin that surround the craters, or other facial defects.

How it works

It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to shave away the uppermost layers of your skin and exfoliate well. The treatment can help reduce the appearance of acne scars or other skin imperfections by removing the dead skin cells and thus leaving your skin brighter, and smoother.


This exfoliation treatment results in the developing of new skin cells that help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Here are some more benifits : – Softer and smoother skin – Brighter looking appearance – Removes dead skin cells instantly – Safe exfoliation for all skin types


Avoid sun exposure, limit makeup use, skip using harsh products, and apply gentle moisturizers.

Mild redness and swelling on the skin are common side effects of the treatment. However, there is minimal downtime. The skin goes back to being normal in 24 to 48 hours.

No. The treatment does not interact with the hair follicles or have any adverse impact on hair growth. After the treatment, your hair will continue growing the same way it used to.
