The staff at Trace Skin Care is committed to helping our patients achieve radiant, healthy skin. Developing a regular skin care routine is an important step in achieving and maintaining healthy skin. Exfoliation is an important step in a skin care routine as it sloughs away dead skin cells that can lead to a dull, uneven appearance and helps keep pores from getting clogged by excess oil or the buildup of dead skin cells. Proper exfoliation can lead to softer, smoother, younger-looking skin. At Trace Skin Care, we offer skin exfoliation treatments like microdermabrasion and dermaplaning for patients looking for a treatment to refresh and invigorate their skin.

What is Microdermabrasion?
This non-invasive skin exfoliation treatment uses tiny crystals to manually exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion treatments focus on removing the top layer of skin, which mostly consists of dead skin cells, and cause less skin irritation than other exfoliation treatments because it removes very little living skin tissue. Microdermabrasion can be used to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, correct mild sun damage, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
In order to achieve optimal results, we typically recommend between five and eight treatments spaced about a week apart. Maintenance treatments may be necessary every two to three months in order to maintain your results. Treatment sessions typically take about 30 minutes and can easily be worked into a lunch hour or busy schedule. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin tones and skin types.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion:
- Quick treatment sessions
- Corrects mild sun damage
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves uneven skin tone and texture
- No downtime
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin exfoliation treatment that uses a ten gauge scalpel to manually exfoliate the skin. This revitalizing treatment resurfaces the skin by removing peach fuzz and dead skin cells, which stimulates the regeneration of new skin cell and reveals a smoother, softer, more vibrant complexion.
Dermaplaning treatments typically last for 30 to 45 minutes and can easily be worked into a busy schedule. This exfoliating treatment is safe for most skin types. During your initial consultation, we will review your skincare needs and desired results of treatment and determine if dermaplaning is the appropriate treatment for you!
Benefits of Dermaplaning:
- Immediately visible results
- Removes peach fuzz
- Gently exfoliates the skin
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines
- Helps unclog pores
- Improves the appearance of acne scarring
- Improves the penetration and absorption of topical skincare products
