Dullness, dryness, and damage are often limited to the outermost layers of the skin. But exfoliating products meant for at-home use can be damaging to skin and don’t always create the results you want. Dermaplaning is a controlled, clinical treatment that sloughs away these outer layers, revealing the soft, healthy complexion beneath. Dermaplaning at our Anchorage med spa is a great complement to the normal skincare regimen of our patients from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding communities.
Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.Request My Consultation
How It Works
Dermaplaning is essentially the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile surgical blade. At ACENT, only our trained skincare providers perform dermaplaning. The blade is held at a precise 45-degree angle. This allows for the removal of keratinized cells (dead skin) as well as fine vellus hair, otherwise known as “peach fuzz.”
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin. It is highly effective at minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant.
Dermaplaning is great for prepping skin prior to a peel and increases the penetration of active ingredients in both clinical and home skincare products. Makeup goes on smoother and skin glows! It’s the perfect treatment to undergo before a special event.
I wanted to thank you for your empathy and quality care during my appointment with you. You not only made me feel better but also made me look better. I am very pleased with the JUVÉDERM® that you placed in my face. Thank you again.Julie 45-year-old patient, after JUVÉDERM treatment
What to Expect
Dermaplaning is performed here in our office. The procedure is relatively brief and comfortable. Because dermaplaning doesn’t require downtime, patients can enjoy their results instantly. After treatment, the skin will look revitalized and smoother, with no vellus hair, either. These hairs won’t grow back any darker or thicker.
We recommend a treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.
You may also undergo Dermaplane Deluxe, a procedure that includes cleansing, dermaplaning, an enzyme treatment, and a hydrating mask.
