Dermaplaning is a popular treatment that uses a special scalpel to remove dead skin gently cells, dirt, debris, and peach fuzz. The exfoliating blade, when in the hands of one of Dr. Merriman’s highly skilled skincare specialists, causes no pain or irritation, while resulting in a fresh, smooth complexion.


What does dermaplaning treatment entail?

During your dermaplaning treatment, a skincare specialist will apply an iodine substance that will protect your skin from any infection as well as provide a guide for your specialist. Your specialist will then begin to scrape the blade gently across the skin’s surface, removing fine hairs and dead skin. All in your dermaplaning treatment can be completed in 15 minutes, leaving your skin fresh and glowing.

Am I a good candidate for dermaplaning?

If you have excess peach fuzz and notice a dull complexion, dermaplaning may be an ideal solution for you. Most skin types can benefit from dermaplaning, but those with very sensitive skin, such as those with rosacea, or those suffering from an acne breakout may not be good candidates for dermaplaning.

What results can I expect from dermaplaning?

Most patients report that their faces look “lit-from-within” after dermaplaning, as it results in fresh, clean, glowing skin. Dermaplaning results in a smooth, hair-free complexion giving it a sheen and allowing makeup to glide more easily onto the skin for a more even look (although you should wait to apply makeup until a day after your treatment).

Dermaplaning reveals fresh skin that can absorb facial products more efficiently. After your dermaplaning treatment, you can apply products such as a super-moisturizing hyaluronic acid. dermaplaning can be used in combination with other therapies to achieve a more comprehensive level of facial skin rejuvenation.

What can I expect after dermaplaning?

After your dermaplaning treatment, you may experience some redness and sensitivity as your new skin is revealed, which typically disappears after a day or two. You should make sure to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your newly-revealed skin as well as let it breathe, by not covering it with foundation or powder for at least a day.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

We are doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. We are still here and working but not currently offering treatments. We are available to answer any questions you have. Our number one priority is safety of our patients, staff and our community.

We are seeing our patients who have recently had surgery for suture removal and to make sure your recovery is safe. We will keep the reception area empty and you will go straight back to an exam room. We will wear masks for your protection. Please only bring one person with you and if possible, it would be best if they can stay in your car during your visit.

We are offering Tele-Health visits for Surgical and Non-surgical consultations. It will be done the same way as an in person consultation would be done, except we will use video to communicate with you. This is done using our Electronic Medical Record and ensures your privacy. Having that consultation process done will allow you to schedule surgery and treatments so they can be done as soon as we are able to provide them again. I believe that after this ordeal, we will all be ready to do something nice for ourselves!

We are providing people with the chance to purchase products. We can bring them to your car. You can also purchase gift cards and we are developing several packages we want to offer. We are also shipping products during this time.

We understand all this uncertainty is frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience. This situation changes day to day and we will keep you updated as we know more.

So what are we doing since we are not filling our schedule doing surgery, lasers, fillers, Botox, Dysport etc?

We are doing staff training. We will continue to brainstorm and think of ways we can provide even more exceptional patient experience.

We will be making videos and continuing to post on social media. Some of these will be educational and some will be to entertain! How entertaining will probably depend on how stir-crazy we get!

Be safe and be smart. Do your part to slow this virus down. And please, support your local businesses as much as possible.
