What is Dermaplaning?

Dead skin cells and hair can cause clogged pores, uneven texture, and impurities on the skin’s surface. Dermaplaning is a medical-grade esthetic technique used to exfoliate and smooth skin texture by removing dead skin cells and hair from the surface level.

At New Age Spa, our medical estheticians use a professional cosmetic tool to remove vellus facial hairs (peach fuzz) and exfoliate the skin, improving texture and creating a brighter overall complexion. Dermaplaning facials encourage deep exfoliation of the epidermis, providing instant, amazingly smooth skin.

Our standard dermaplaning facial costs 105$.

What causes Melasma?

Melasma can be caused by many factors, including hormones, birth control, pregnancy, genetics, injury (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and, most frequently, by sun exposure. However, Melasma mainly affects darker complexions such as Asian and Arabic skin types. Once the skin has been affected by these factors, it builds extra melanin cells at certain spots on the face.

What can I do to treat Melasma?

There are multiple solutions to treat to prevent Melasma. You can apply hydrating creams or serums to keep your skin healthy and protected from skin conditions at home. You can also apply sunscreen whenever you are exposed to the sun. Other topical solutions include skin brightening agents such as chemical peels and lightening creams.

Melasma laser treatment in Montreal

The best way to remove or reduce the appearance of Melasma on the skin is by getting professional laser treatments. At New Age Spa in Montreal and Laval, you can expect the best skincare experience, from free consultation to professional advice and treatments.

Gentle pro max laser treatment for Melasma

We use the Gentle pro max laser machine to remove pigmented lesions of all types and have extensive experience treating Melasma with laser technology. Our laser will target the melasma spots without harming surrounding skin tissue and prevent side effects such as scarring. Book you a free consultation and receive personalized care for your specific skin conditions, skin type and situation. The laser will deliver thermal damage to the areas containing melanin buildup and break down the hyperpigmentation into tiny particles that the body will remove.

How many sessions does it take?

We recommend 2-4 sessions to rid the skin of Melasma or hyperpigmentation completely. Our professionals will assess your skin and offer a full consultation before and after each laser appointment. The results may vary from person to person, and each treatment should be scheduled about four weeks apart.

Dermaplaning experience

Dermaplaning facials in Montreal and Laval locations use manual or mechanical cosmetic scalpel tools held at a 45-degree angle to remove hair and exfoliate dead skin from the face. Treatment sessions take between 20 and 30 minutes. Treatments will improve fine lines and sun damage. Peach fuzz, facial hair, and dry patches will be removed, revealing softer, brighter, more even skin. After the treatment, your skincare expert will apply soothing lotion and protective sunscreen.

Dermaplaning Procedure

Dermaplaning is a simple treatment with fabulous results that you will be able to see immediately. When you leave the spa you will be glowing. However, it may take a few days to see the full results.

While the concept might seem scary, dermaplaning is completely painless. You might experience a slight tingling sensation during the process.

Contrary to popular belief, the hair will not grow back thicker or darker than it was previously after dermaplaning. It may feel rougher at first as it starts to grow but this is just because the hair was cut straight across so the hair’s edge is less soft right away. It will be the same colour and texture as before, and it will continue growing at the same speed.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Our team of medical estheticians and skincare experts at New Age Spa locations provide a relaxing and pain-tree dermaplaning treatment. You’ll be treated to a cleansing facial with exfoliation, refreshing masking, gentle facial massage, and leave with smoother, radiant skin.

What should i do before Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure. However, like all skincare treatments, it will be important to take care of your skin before and after your session in order to see the best results and to minimize any potential side effects.

Be sure to stop using any at-home exfoliation and peeling products at least 3 to 5 days before your appointment. That includes any retinols, enzymes, scrubs, polishes, or other exfoliating peels or serums. Since dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation treatment, any other exfoliation too soon before might result in “overexfoliation.” This could prompt redness, irritation, acne breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin.

Avoid direct sun exposure in the 5 to 7 days before your dermaplaning session. Do not receive any Botox or filler injections in the 3 to 4 days before your dermaplaning session. Try to reschedule your appointment if you have open wounds or acne lesions on the day of your dermaplaning session.

What should I do after Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has zero downtime. Slight redness might occur, but not always. Many people book their dermaplaning sessions during their lunch break and return to work. You may want to avoid make up for the rest of the day in order to let your skin breathe a bit after the dermaplaning session. Since your skin barrier will be a little sensitive after your treatment, use a moisturizing cream or a hyaluronic mask to help repair and hydrate your newly exfoliated skin.

Some clients experience developing new whiteheads over the skin that was treated with dermaplaning in first couple of days after their session.

After dermaplaning, it is important to avoid direct sunlight as skin can become more sensitive. Use a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher, reapplying generously and frequently.

How often should i get Dermaplaning?

Since this is a deeply exfoliating treatment, book your next dermaplaning treatment at least one month after your last session. Some people with more sensitive skin might stand to benefit from booking their dermaplaning sessions even just once a season.

Dermaplaning results should last for about three weeks to a month. 

What can i expect from Dermaplaning?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with improved skin texture and skin tone. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the removal of peach fuzz renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skincare products such as creams and serums will work more efficiently after dermaplaning. Makeup and cosmetics will also look much better on your skin.
