Dealing with dead skin cells and peach fuzz constantly can impact your skincare routine, but one way you can take advantage of your skin care products is through dermaplaning. At Smile-Chic, our team offers dermaplaning as an effective way to exfoliate your face and neck, giving you back a flawless canvas for further treatment.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method that works with ten gauge scalpels to scrape off the upper top layer of dead skin cells from your face. As a cosmetic procedure, the scalpel is gently scraped along the face to remove the top part of the epidermis layer and small hairs, also known as peach fuzz. By scraping off dead skin cells and peach fuzz, your skin is left smoother than ever before, and you can fully take advantage of any skin care treatment out there.

Dermaplaning is purely an exfoliating treatment, as it can be combined with multiple treatments to enhance its effects. Some treatments that can be combined with dermaplaning include:

  • Enzyme Peels: Enzyme peels work with an enzyme exfoliate to target and feel away under layers of skin. When combined, this treatment can help reduce fine lines, dark spots, and deep folds.
  • Custom Chic Facials: Facial treatments can be more fully absorbed when combined with dermaplaning. Depending on what you’re seeking from your skin, this combo can help reduce wrinkles, brighten dull skin, and even treat areas of acne.
  • Dermal Fillers: Fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse can be taken to full advantage when combined with dermaplaning, as the effects of the fillers can reinfuse the skin with hyaluronic acid. This compound assists in the healing process.
  • Neurotoxin Injections: Neurotoxins such as BOTOX can enhance the effects of dermaplaning by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin, providing the skin with a fresh, smooth appearance.

It’s important to note that not all patients can qualify for dermaplaning. This treatment isn’t recommended for those who have active cases of acne, eczema, cold sore breakouts, and skin rashes. If you experience any of the conditions listed previously, then we can help you find a skin care treatment that suits your needs and helps address your concerns. For any questions and concerns, please call us and we will be here to help.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
