Is dermaplaning the same as microdermabrasion?

They are both exfoliating treatments using different methods. Dermaplaning uses a sterile blade to exfoliate the surface of the skin, microdermabrasion uses a wand with a diamond tip and vacuum to gently remove dead skin.

What treatment would you recommend for me?

Your esthetician will decide on the best treatment for you depending on your skin concerns and goals.

Will I be red after a facial?

You may be slightly pink due to increased circulation but in general you should leave with a healthy glow.

Will the peel burn my skin?

Depending on the depth of the peel it can range from a mild tingling to a more intense stinging/itchy feeling. The better health your skin is in the better results you will achieve.

What can I do about dark spots?

UV exposure is one of the main causes of irregular pigmentation on the skin. Wearing spf and avoiding the sun can prevent new spots from forming. Exfoliating regularly can help lighten existing spots. Our BBL treatment is excellent at lightening or removing dark spots on the skin.

What are extractions?

Extractions are performed by your esthetician to help reduce the congestion and clogged pores in your skin.

My skin is oily, do I still need to wear moisturizer?

Yes even oily skin still needs hydration. If you skip this step your skin will over compensate and become oilier in the long run. Look for a lightweight oil free hydrator- ZO daily power defense or Skinceuticals Daily moisture are great for oilier skin types.
