Whisk away peach fuzz and dead skin with dermaplaning, available at our Tigard, OR, and Vancouver, WA med spa. This skincare treatment gives your skin a smoother, fresher look in just minutes, making it a favorite of people with all skin types and tones.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skincare treatment in which a specialist uses a blade to shave away peach fuzz and dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

During a dermaplaning session, a sterile surgical scalpel is used to carefully scrape away the outermost layer of the skin. This exfoliation process encourages cell turnover and helps to improve skin texture and radiance.

What Skin Concerns Does Dermaplaning Address?

Dermaplaning is effective in addressing concerns such as dullness, rough texture, fine lines, and the buildup of dead skin cells. It also helps create a smooth canvas for makeup application.

Is Dermaplaning Safe?

Yes, dermaplaning is generally safe when performed by a trained and certified skincare professional. The procedure is non-invasive and suitable for most skin types.

How Often Should I Get Dermaplaning Done?

The frequency of dermaplaning treatments depends on your skin’s needs and your desired results. Many clients opt for treatments every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain optimal results.

Is There Any Downtime After the Treatment?

There is typically no downtime after dermaplaning. You may experience mild redness immediately after the treatment, but it usually subsides within a few hours.

When Will I See Results?

Results from dermaplaning are often immediate. Your skin will look and feel smoother and more radiant immediately after the treatment. Makeup application also tends to be smoother and more even.

Can Dermaplaning Be Combined with Other Treatments?

Yes, dermaplaning can be combined with other treatments, such as chemical peels or hydrating masks, to enhance and customize results. Your skincare professional can recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your skin’s unique needs.

Is the Procedure Comfortable?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and is generally well-tolerated. Some clients describe a slight scraping sensation during the treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for most individuals looking to improve skin texture, promote a healthy glow, and enhance the effectiveness of their skincare products. A consultation with a skincare professional will determine if dermaplaning is right for you.

Which Areas Can I Target With BOTOX Injections?

While wrinkles are the most widely recognized target for BOTOX, it can treat other features, too. Amélie’s menu of BOTOX services includes:

Between the Brows

Between the Brows specifically addresses prominent “11s” or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Fresh Face

The Fresh Face treatment addresses several wrinkles on the upper half of your face, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.

Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes diminishes crow’s feet on the outer corners of your eyes.

Lip Flip

Lip Flip reduces lines and wrinkles on and around your lips. It also helps your upper lip look more voluminous.

Smooth Sailing

Smooth Sailing addresses forehead lines and frown lines at the same time.

Facial Slimming

The team at Amélie can use BOTOX injections to help relax and shrink an overdeveloped masseter muscle in your jaw and keep it from clenching.


Many people don’t realize BOTOX can treat excessive sweating, specifically under your armpits. The condition is called hyperhidrosis, and it responds well to BOTOX injections.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?

The team at Amélie will talk with you about your specific goals for treatment to determine whether or not BOTOX is the best option for you. You might be a candidate if:

  • You’re over 18
  • You’re not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have no active skin conditions
  • You have realistic expectations

We may recommend BOTOX to you as a preventative measure even before you develop facial wrinkles if you’re concerned about getting them. Or, depending on the types of wrinkles you have, we may suggest other treatments, like dermal fillers or HALO™ laser skin resurfacing.

What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?

At Amélie, our experienced injectors use very fine needles to place your BOTOX injections in and around your targeted areas. They also use distraction techniques and ice to make your treatment as painless as possible. (Don’t stress about the needle pinch—most people say it feels like a little bug bite!)

Appointments are super quick—we’re talking less than 20 minutes in most cases.

What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?

There’s basically no recovery involved with BOTOX. You can head right back to work, school, or whatever else you’ve got planned. You might have some redness around your injection sites, but that usually goes away within a day.

When Will I See My BOTOX Results?

Results typically show up after about 5 to 10 days. (Dysport is a little faster and only takes about 2 days.) You can expect your results to last about 3 to 4 months.
