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.
"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
"I went to LPA after seeing a special for a new client facial that was $89. I’ve been wanted to start a regular facial regime for a while so took advantage of their special after reading some positive reviews. This was literally one of the best services EVER. I had a microdermabrasion facial with Gege and OMG, amazing. If it wasn’t so pricey I would be here every month and getting many types of treatments.The only annoying thing is that they do not show their prices on their website."- M.T. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2019

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.
