Spectra MDF Fractional Resurfacing Treatment


Exfoliation is crucial for maintaining healthy and radiant skin. Our skin is constantly exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants and sun exposure that can leave the skin’s surface layer looking tired and worn. Dermaplaning is a simple yet powerful method of exfoliation that serves to remove dead skin cells from the skin surface and reveal a newer, smoother and refreshed complexion.

At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we perform this treatment for patients seeking to naturally rejuvenate their skin, or for those wanting to look their best for an upcoming event. Dermaplaning is a chemical-free, non-invasive way to clear away damaged skin cells and ultimately bring out the best in your skin.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Performed by a qualified practitioner, dermaplaning involves gently scraping over the skin surface with a sterile surgical-grade scalpel. The blade is passed lightly over the top layer of the skin at a 45-degree angle, which allows for a relatively comfortable treatment experience. This process works to clear the face of peach fuzz (short, soft hairs) and dead or damaged skin cells. Though it seems similar to facial shaving, the procedure provides a thorough cleansing of the face’s outermost layer. By revealing newer and healthier cells, dermaplaning leaves the skin feeling and looking fresh, radiant and silky-smooth.

Our Combination Treatment

At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, many patients prefer to undergo our comprehensive two-step exfoliation treatment, which combines dermaplaning with a chemical peel. We begin by gently scraping away the top layer of the skin, followed by applying a light chemical peel that works to hydrate and cleanse the face. By pairing the manual exfoliation with the peel, our dermaplaning treatment allows for deeper penetration of the dermal tissue and a more thorough rejuvenation. Together, these procedures encourage cell turnover and help to soften lines, even-out pigment, and produce refreshed and radiant skin. Our combination treatment takes only 45 minutes and can provide transformative improvements to your complexion.

What to Expect After Treatment

Unlike other resurfacing treatments, there is no downtime required for dermaplaning. Though you may experience some redness immediately following the procedure, this generally dissipates within a few hours. You may also experience some slight tightening, dryness or flaking of the skin, which usually disappears within two days. Applying a dermatologically tested moisturizer will help to soothe the skin, keeping it healthy and hydrated post-exfoliation. Though the aftercare process is usually uncomplicated, our friendly team of nurses and physicians will ensure you are fully aware of how to manage any post-treatment concerns.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of sessions required will depend on what you are hoping to achieve. For those wishing to maintain a clear complexion and a natural glow, we recommend a series of treatments spaced three to four weeks apart, for more thorough, long-term improvements to the face. Repeating the procedure monthly will encourage cell turnover and remove any new hair growth. Alternatively, some patients simply prefer to undergo treatment one to two weeks before an event, to ensure their skin is at its best quality. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we can work with you to determine the amount and frequency of sessions required to achieve your cosmetic goals and maintain your desired look.


Dermaplaning is a simple and comfortable exfoliation method suitable for patients of all ages and skin types. Providing a safe and quick way to deeply cleanse the face, dermaplaning boasts many benefits for the skin, including:

  • Deeper product penetration
  • Improved application of makeup
  • Removal of facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Encourages cell turnover
  • Promotes softer and smoother skin
  • Reduced appearance of acne scars

Who is a Suitable Candidate?

Dermaplaning can be performed on all skin types and is especially suitable for those with sensitive skin. Since the procedure is natural and chemical-free, it provides an excellent alternative to harsher exfoliating methods, such as dermabrasion – a more aggressive skin resurfacing procedure. Dermaplaning is an effective treatment for those seeking to free the face of hair and damaged cells, improve tone and texture, and ultimately achieve softer and silkier skin. Since the face is often exposed to harsh toxins and chemicals, this procedure is suitable for those wishing to cleanse the skin, encourage cell turnover and achieve a healthier, more refreshed profile to complement their appearance. Before proceeding with treatment, we will also examine your skin tone and current condition to ensure this procedure is suitable for you.

Is Dermaplaning Right for You?

Dermaplaning provides a safe, quick and easy treatment option for those seeking to rejuvenate their skin. Whether you are preparing for a social event, or would simply like to achieve a healthier, more youthful complexion, our dermaplaning treatment can help you bring out the best of your natural beauty. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we are passionate about skin restoration and finding the treatment that works best for your skin.

The staff is very knowledgeable on all skin types. I went in for a consult for pigment issues. Melissa put me on a skin care routine with the ZO skin care line and recommend Lase md treatments with an occasional microneedling. My skin has never looked better at the age of 40. My pigment issue has resolved and my skin now has a bright glowing appearance.
