Dermaplaning is a safe and effective skin exfoliation, suitable for men and women of all skin tones. Popular for it’s simple nature and amazing results, leaving your skin smooth and soft to the touch. Sometimes called epidermal leveling, it utilizes a specially designed surgical blade to carefully remove the topmost layers of the skin, resulting in a glowing, fresh look and there’s no recovery time.
Dermaplaning gives the skin a smoother, more supple and vibrant appearance by removing dead skin cells in addition to fine villous hairs (peach fuzz) that can trap excess dirt and oil and cause acne (without the pain and irritation of facial waxing or depilatories). After your 45 minute Dermaplaning session, our highly skilled practitioners will have you looking smooth and absolutely radiant—after all, that’s our number-one priority. We know you’ll love the results!
Dermaplaning uses a gentle blade to help manually remove the layers of rough, dull and damaged skin, instantly. This treatment also whisks away unwanted facial hair that sits above the epidermis, preventing it from growing back in thicker.
This is a very effective way to resurface your skin and reveal a brighter, more youthful complexion. It’s gentle and doesn’t use any chemicals, so it doesn’t require any downtime or have any side effects. This is also beneficial for pregnant women or nursing mothers who cannot use chemicals with their sensitive skin due to hormone fluctuations. Dermaplaning can be done once a month, as that is the time it takes for skin to fully replenish itself.
Using a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess villous hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients 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.
High Frequency uses oscillating high frequency electrical current to stimulate circulation to skin cells. A glass electrode is touched to the face, causing a tingling sensation on the skin. This treatment helps to prevent and treat bacteria on and within the skin. High frequency treatments promote an anti bacterial environment making it exceptional for the treatment of acne.
High frequency can also be used to treat enlarged pores. It inhibits excess sebum production and penetrates deep into the pores. The rush of oxygen molecules help promote lymphatic drainage to get rid of excess oils. Once sebum and oil production has decreased, the pore can then regain its normal size and shape.
The High Frequency Treatment can be added onto any facial or peel for $12.

Threading is an ancient method of hair removal originating in India and Asia and considered an art form utilizing a thin thread to trap and lift fine facial hair. The cotton thread is twisted in a double strand and then swept along the skin with a rolling action to pick up the hair and remove it from the follicle, root and all. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair. Threading can be done on the brows, lip, chin and entire face. The technique itself is very quick, usually taking less that 7 minutes with very little prep. Duration between appointments will vary depending on your hair type and how you hair grows, results can last up to 6 weeks.
This technique of hair removal is incredibly concise. Threading allows for a more precise shape, creating better definition for brows.
Nothing touches the skin except for the thread which makes this very gentle on the skin. This safe and effective method is particularly recommended for those who cannot wax due to sensitivity, medication or topical contraindications such as Retin-A.
