What is Dermaplaning and IPL?

Dermaplaning + IPL (Intense Pulsed Laser) is a non-invasive, no-downtime exfoliating treatment that is suitable for most all skin types paired with a gentle yet effective resurfacing laser treatment to even out skin texture and tone, giving a youthful glow.

Treatment

Treatment includes preparation of the skin with a cleanser and astringent. A stainless steel blade is gently moved across the skin’s surface, removing dead skin, fine hairs (vellus hairs) and cellular debris. Then, a numbing agent is applied, once the face is numb the IPL laser handpiece is placed against your skin. Most patients describe this as a “sting” or being snapped with a rubber band. The laser is done in quadrants and takes about 20 minutes total.

Ask a provider a question about your unique circumstances and whether Photoplaning™ is right for you.

Complimentary Consultation

Each potential treatment begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our trained medical providers. After creating a customized treatment plan and you are deemed a good candidate you have the option of proceeding with and/ or scheduling the treatment (there is no obligation to receive treatment).
