What is Dermaplaning?
Would you like to add a manual exfoliation to your facial? Dermaplaning can take your aesthetic skin treatments to a new level. Dermaplaning is an innovative facial exfoliation technique that manually purges the surface of the skin. With a medical-grade blade, our aesthetician can remove dead skin cells and vellus facial hair. Also known as dermablading, this treatment is performed by carefully scraping the skin's surface. You can request dermaplaning treatments at Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago, IL.
"I am another one who has purchased a groupon for the 6 laser hair treatments and I couldn’t have been happier with the experience from Danie and price. Although I have only had two sessions, I have already seen a reduction in hair growth in my arm pits and bikini area. Danie is very sweet and made sure that I was very comfortable considering I am kind of a baby about the laser. (It is not super painful, just feels a little prickly) I would recommend this medical spa to anyone. In the past, I’ve also received a microdermabrasion and peel from Danie, which loved both of them as well. When I received them, she fully explained what it would feel like and how to take care of my skin afterwards. She is very acknowledge on all treatments that the spa offers as well as the products they use in house. Again, I highly recommend this spa to other."- C.T. / Yelp / Jan 16, 2016
"Bought a Groupon for dermaplaning and a chemical peel. I’ve had chemical peels before but never dermaplaning. Booking was super easy. I called and they gave me the date and time that I preferred. Lauren performed my services. She was very sweet, professional, down to earth, and knew her shit! By the way, she has amazing skin, which is important if you’re giving advice on skin care. The space itself is cozy, small and modern. All the girls were super welcoming and the physician they sent in to go over the consent form with me was patient and informative. Also, there is plenty of street metered parking.Lauren proceeded to perform dermaplaning which felt like a razor scraping off dead skin all over my face. It didn’t hurt at all. The chemical peel stung a little ad usual and expected. I started peeling 2 days after and continued to for 5 more days, just like Lauren said. Now, 10 days after, my skin looks smooth and my acne cleared!!I can’t wait to go back to try out other services. I’ve already recommended a few friends."- C.M. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2016
"I recently had my first facial with Stef, who is now my new skin expert. I had the dermaplane facial, which makes your face feel like a babies bottom. I was a bit nervous, being a first timer and having sensitive skin with how this would go. However, I was having a problem with dryness and I felt my makeup emphasized the dryness (especially around the eyes). However, since the facial my face is basically brand new. I had multiple men ask if "I did something new" because I looked so good! They could tell something was different but couldnt put their finger on it. Stef is an expert with product and made recommendations that tailored to my skin needs. She was very honest and even gave me FREE samples to test products before purchase (who doesnt love samples?). I would highly recommend Stef and will definitely be back for her service!"- J.B. / Yelp / Feb 07, 2017
"I had a terrific experience here. I went in for a microdermabrasion facial and my aesthetician Stéphanie was top notch. She was very knowledgeable about the products and procedure and was also very meticulous. The facial was also very effective and I recognize the importance of an amped up microdermabrasion vs a standard facial. I’ll be back for other offerings."- J.B. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2017
"First time at LPA and had a great experience! I bought a Groupon for the dermabrasion facial and the service and Esthetician Meagan was excellent. She provided me with a lot of knowledge on other services and products I can use to help me achieve my goals of clearing my skin and getting rid of any acne scars. The service was great and my skin after the facial was smooth and clearer. I highly recommend Meagan!"- B.S. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2018
Do I need Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning sessions at Lincoln Park Aesthetics are safe skin treatments that are available for most skin types and tones. If you have severe acne, dermaplaning may not be a suitable treatment for you. The best candidates for this procedure:
- Are looking for an exfoliant other than a chemical peel or microdermabrasion
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Do not have sensitive skin
- Have uneven skin tone
Our Dermaplaning Technique
Dermaplaning is a noninvasive treatment that can be performed in our office in a short amount of time. This is a manual exfoliation technique that involves the careful scraping of your skin's surface with a facial blade. Your aesthetician will scrape the treatment area many times and focus on the very top layer of skin. The purpose of the treatment is to gently scrape away damaged skin cells and "peach fuzz" hair for smoother, healthier-looking skin.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, you may find your face to look a little irritated. This is a normal side effect that will subside. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun as your face may be very sensitive in the days following the treatment. Expect to see results soon after since dermaplaning produces softer, smoother skin instantaneously. We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. You can combine dermaplaning with a facial and other facial skin treatments.
