Say Goodbye to Dull Skin: Microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning Explained

Jul '23

Considering microdermabrasion or dermaplaning at SkinCenter, but not sure which treatment aligns with your skincare goals? You’ve come to the right place! Let’s define each of these aesthetic solutions so you know which one fits your needs and preferences the best.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin’s outer layer and rejuvenates its appearance for a younger and more radiant look. It relies on exfoliating crystals and gentle suction to give you clearer, smoother skin and to minimize discoloration. Here are some of the benefits of a microdermabrasion treatment at SkinCenter:

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is another minimally invasive procedure we offer at SkinCenter. During this treatment, an aesthetician will use a sterile surgical scalpel to gently remove the exterior layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, or “peach fuzz,” from your face.

Different Procedures for Different Goals

Which treatment you pick really comes down to what your unique skincare goals are. If you’ve been combatting skin conditions such as discoloration or acne scarring for years, then microdermabrasion might be a match for you. But if you’re happy with your skin’s overall condition and simply want to enhance your glow and the potency of your anti-aging products, then dermaplaning is the better option.
