If skin treatments, like microdermabrasion and facials, are no longer giving you the results you want, but you aren't ready to seek lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, more radiant complexion. Also called dermablading, this procedure is performed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Dr. MaryAnn Millar M.D. is thrilled to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Level Up Med Spa in Andover, MA. Dermaplaning is very well-known these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, more beautiful skin.

After years of cystic acne struggles, she's the only one who I trust with my skin from everything to recommending products, dermaplaning and hydrafacials. I look forward to seeing her every month and we've even become such great friends! I cannot say enough good things and highly recommend Liz and the entire Levl Up team!"- C.N. / Facebook / Mar 23, 2020

Dermaplaning Procedure Technique
Dermaplane treatments are usually performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. After cleaning the skin, the treatment will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the face with a facial blade. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The treatment time will vary, depending on whether some or all of the face is being addressed. During your consultation, Dr. Millar M.D. will help you to better understand the process and address any concerns.
What to Expect with Dermaplaning
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, your skin may be a bit pinkish. These are normal side effects that will subside in the coming days. It is common for small amounts of peeling to occur as the skin heals, and it is important not to pull them off. Instead, you should allow the skin to fall off naturally. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be very sensitive in the days following the treatment. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals smoother, softer skin instantly. To help you protect your refreshed skin, the technician will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
