Dermaplaning in Algonquin
Bring Beautiful Skin to the Surface
Dermaplaning in Algonquin at CaTara Medical Spa is a gentle resurfacing of the skin using a single-use surgical blade to remove the outermost layer of skin.
Dermaplaning offers a variety of benefits and is minimally invasive. This treatment is safe and effective for almost all skin types. We suggest this treatment as a solution to dull, dry skin, as well as peach fuzz. It offers improvement in skin texture while adding a glow and stimulating new collagen production.

The Dermaplaning Process
What to Expect
Before your dermaplaning treatment in Algonquin, you'll meet with one of our medical aestheticians for a skin consultation. They will discuss any concerns you have about your skin, as well as understand your desired results.
Book your Appointment
You can book online or call your desired location and our front desk staff will book your treatment for a day and time that works best for you. Then, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your appointment to help optimize your results.
Arrive for Treatment
When you arrive, we’ll make you comfortable in one of our relaxing treatment rooms. We’ll give you a comprehensive review of the treatment, make sure you understand what to expect, and answer any questions you have.
Sit Back and Relax
Our team is expertly trained on the best techniques to ensure we meet your expectations. During dermaplaning, we will instruct you to keep your eyes closed. However, you’re free to chat with your aesthetician, or simply lay back and relax.
Once the treatment is complete, we will assess the treated area and give you a brief review of your post-treatment instructions. At this time, we’ll book any follow-up appointments needed to make the most of your results!
- Avoid sun exposure and waxing for 2 weeks before appointment
- Stop any exfoliating products or treatments 3 days before dermaplaning
- Make sure skin is free of acne. Dermaplaning shouldn’t be performed during an active outbreak as it can spread bacteria to other parts of the skin
- Avoid direct sunlight
- Use gentle facial cleansing products to avoid irritating your skin
Frequently Asked Questions
Will hair grow back faster or thicker?
Dermaplaning is safe and non-invasive. You will not experience a difference in hair growth but may experience some redness and/or dryness around the treatment area following treatment, but these effects do not last long.
How long does it last?
Dermaplaning results last for a few weeks. As your skin cycles roughly every 4 weeks, we recommend repeating treatment to continue results. We advise our patients to repeat dermaplaning once a month to help their skin’s natural process.
What results can I expect?
After your treatment at CaTara, you can expect smoother skin, free of peach fuzz. Most patients notice their skin is brighter and healthier looking.
Is it a combinable treatment?
Dermaplaning can easily be added to any facial treatment.
