We at Alma MedSpa in St.Peters help your skin to seem as fresh and healthy as possible. An even complexion and the disappearance of acne scars are among the promised benefits of this therapy. Peach fuzz, the soft, short hairs on your face, can also be removed using this method.

You shouldn’t feel any discomfort throughout a dermaplaning session. Our dermaplaning treatment experts in St.Peters use sedatives such as numbing spray, local anesthetic, an oral sedative, or in rare cases, general anesthesia.

After putting you at ease, we will scrape your skin at a 45-degree angle with an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool. The average time spent here is between 20 and 30 minutes, during which the therapist will carefully exfoliate your skin. Once the procedure is done, we will apply a soothing gel, aloe, or sunscreen to your face.
