Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin using a sterile blade to slough off the outer layer of dead skin cells and fine, vellus hair (often called “peach fuzz”). You’ll see immediate results after a dermaplaning procedure, which leaves the skin silky smooth and can also improve the absorption and effectiveness of nourishing creams and serums. Customized masks and skincare products are part of each dermaplaning treatment.

A dermaplaning procedure is effective for all skin types and doesn’t require any downtime. The treated skin does not peel afterward.

Our Dermaplane Treatment Options

Choose from these options starting at $75 (accelerated serum add-on available):

Dermaplane Facial (Full): A complete dermaplane treatment with hydrating or calming mask.

Express Dermaplane Facial (Mini): A mini dermaplane treatment for a quick glow.

Dermaplane Facial with Chemical Peel: A full dermaplane treatment combined with a SkinMedica Illuminize peel to reverse signs of aging.

Professional Aesthetic Facials

We’ve created customized facial treatments designed to support the renewal of healthy skin by addressing a range of skin conditions. These facials help reach specific skincare goals based on each patient’s objectives, lifestyle, and skin condition.

Our facials don’t include extractions and can be performed every 2 to 4 weeks. No pre-conditioning is needed, and facials don’t require downtime.

Our Aesthetic Facial Options

Choose the facial that best suits your goals, starting at $75 (dermaplaning or accelerated serum add-ons available):

Lunch Time Peel: A “lunchtime” alpha hydroxy acid combination that stimulates cellular turnover and is good for all skin types. This treatment is designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin tone, texture, and clarity without downtime.

Galante M.D. Customized Facial: Customized to target specific conditions such as aging and dehydrated, oily, sensitive, and pigmented skin. Each protocol specifically strengthens the skin’s structural integrity and supports healthy skin renewal. It includes customized treatment masks and finishing products.

Enzyme Resurfacing Treatment: This no-downtime, resurfacing treatment is appropriate for all skin types, even sensitive and weak skin. It provides gentle, invisible exfoliation that immediately revives dull-looking skin, replenishes skin moisture, and minimizes the appearance of discoloration, thus promoting a more even skin tone.

My only regret is that I didn’t come here sooner!!! I was working so hard in the gym but couldn’t see results because my body was so rough from having babies. Dr. Galante changed all of that! It is miraculous to me that so many kind, hospitable, and encouraging people all work in one office! I was feeling really nervous and pretty insecure about the whole process, especially because I had received consultations from elsewhere and had a very negative experience. Dr. Galante and his staff were so uplifting and made me feel beautiful even before my procedure. He could charge a lot more for his work but doesn’t, I think because he just likes helping others feel beautiful. Every person in this office is gifted with making people feel welcome and cared for. Also, his work is incredible. He far exceeded my expectations for what I would look like after my surgery. I will never go anywhere else and I encourage all of my friends to see him. Thank you, Dr. Galante and staff for taking such good care of me! My results are amazing and just keep getting better.

Had a brow, neck and face lift. Dr. Galante did an excellent job. The doctor and staff was amazing. The scars you don't notice, can't believe how you have to point them out to see them. Can't wait till I can go back and have other procedures done. Their concerns are what you want and what will make you happy. I highly recommend the work of him and his staff.

Dr Galante is amazing! I recently had breast augmentation in Nov 2020. I am a mother of 3 children and work full time. I went to a total of 4 consultations with other surgeons and decided to go with Dr Galante. He took his time and went through everything. He answered my questions and concerns. I was so nervous on the day of surgery and is whole team of nurses, surgical tech, and CRNA made the process easy. I have no regrets and am very pleased with my results, he did exactly what I asked and I feel amazing!!

Flawless. I recently had breast implant removal and replacement with Dr. Galante, who came highly recommended, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. After many years, I was at a crossroads about having my implants removed or replacing them. At the consultation, Dr. Galante and Megan, nurse & patient coordinator, we’re attentive, informative and caring. They gave me the information, pros and cons, and didn’t try to sway my decision either way. I didn’t wait too long and decided to go for it and have removal and replacement. He is a truly gifted surgeon and put in just the right size for my frame. This breast surgery was a cinch the second time around. Wish I hadn’t waited. His staff are all very nice and professional. The nurses and anesthesiologists at the clinic all top notch too. It was win win! Thank you!

BEST decision I’ve ever made!! I have had two procedures done by Dr. Galante, including a breast augmentation and lower eyelid procedure, and have recommended many friends to him! I got my breasts done 7 years ago now and have never felt more confident in my own skin, I will be surprised if they ever need to be replaced. While the healing was a bit uncomfortable, I would do it a million times over again. They look SO GOOD. I can’t tell you how many “compliments” I’ve gotten on them. My lower eyelid lift was a few days ago & WOW the results already! My eyes look like they did before I hit puberty. Although I’m not fully healed I am already so happy. He is a true artist and extremely professional. Wonderful staff as well! Would highly recommend him and his practice!

It has been 7 months since my breast reduction and I couldn’t be happier! From beginning to end Dr. Galante and his entire staff have been outstanding. The high reviews and no consultation fee is what first drew me. From day one he makes you feel very comfortable and secure. He is patient and friendly. Most importantly, he is informative and he knows what he’s doing! I love my results. This was so worth it! Absolute best decision I could’ve made. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Dr. Galante and his staff are wonderful. This was my first plastic surgery experience and I’m extremely satisfied. The doctor and his staff are very thorough while explaining the procedure, costs, options, and results. I felt like Dr. Galante helped me make decisions of what size implants fit me best based on my “ideal” size and my body size/structure. He made sure to give me the most realistic size for my build. I felt like the pre-op directions were very straight forward and easy to understand and I never got nervous or felt like I had unanswered questions going into surgery. The post-op follow ups and appointments were also thorough and I felt comfortable being under Dr. Galante’s care. Never did I feel uncomfortable or uneasy about my decision, the procedure, or the professionalism of Dr Galante and his staff. To some people, undergoing a procedure like I did (along with all of the appointments) May make them feel uncomfortable, vulnerable, or uneasy but I promise that you will not get this feeling around Dr. Galante and his staff. They are EXTREMELY professional, helpful, informative, thorough, and friendly. I’m beyond satisfied with my procedure and experience and appreciate all of the care that I received from Dr. Galante and his staff. Thank you so much & I will definitely be back in the future.

I am beyond pleased with my results, the amazing, compassionate staff and of course the brilliant mind and magically talented hands of Dr Galante. From the minute you walk in for your very 1st consultation, to scheduling, to the Dr holding your hand as you are being put under anesthesia, to the phone call from him later that evening of surgery checking in on you, till your last post op appointment you feel comfort, ease and confident you chose the right doctor. He answered all my questions. Gave me realistic expectations. Told me exactly what to expect and when to expect it. I’m so happy he was able to give me back physically something I couldn’t achieve on my own and a new sense of confidence! He and his staff really are the best!

I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr Galante. During the consultation he was very personal-able and knowledgeable. He gave me realistic expectations of my requested procedures. He was familiar with the tendency of ethnicities with more melanin to keloid. . And had a plan to minimize them if it happened. He patiently answered our questions and didn’t attempt to push unnecessary procedures. I was particularly impressed with his concern for my medical safety by explaining the risks of staying under anesthesia too long and getting multiple procedure at once. Office staff was also wonderful. Surgicenter was clean and the staff outstanding. My husband and I are totally thrilled with my results. Yes, I would do it again. Absolutely. I highly recommend him to everyone.

I would highly recommend Nikki for Botox. I had several experiences with other injectable providers and felt it was just ok. Nikki has great knowledge of how it works and is realistic and honest about expectations. She has an eye for the smallest detail, which is what I was looking for and expect. I totally trust her to keep me looking my best.

Hello all! My name is Ange and here is just a little tidbit of my story...I have always been an athlete growing up and had a sporty appearance (currently 34yrs young). Fast forward, to 2008 I had my daughter who is now 10yrs old, I breast fed.. 2013 I started taking lifting seriously and began competitively bodybuilding (Figure Division). Between my time breastfeeding and the time I put in the gym, my upper body TO ME looked like that of a 14yr old boy. That being said, last year on June 30th, 2017 I had a breast augmentation and let me tell you...It one of BEST decision of my life!!! I believe it helped with some of my success this season on stage esp at the National level, but most of all it helped with my confidence! Dr. Galante made me feel comfortable through the entire process along with his wonderful staff. Dr. Galante took his time during my consultation and thoroughly explained the process. He even called me the night I had my surgery to see how I was doing. I would not and could not recommend anyone else. I have also have dabbled with Botox and Juvéderm and have no regrets!

Chemical Peels

All chemical peels at our Indiana offices are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the day of your treatment. Peels are typically categorized as either light, medium, or deep.

Light Peels

Light peels take less than 15 minutes and require no downtime. Light peels reduce wrinkles and improve some textural sun damage. They also reduce acne scars and alleviate rough, dry skin. Most patients resume their regular routines the day of their treatment. You may experience some redness, flaking, and dryness resembling the effects of a mild sunburn as the outer skin layer sloughs off.

Medium Peels

Medium peels penetrate more deeply than light peels but usually only take about 30 minutes to administer. This type of peel corrects moderate sun damage, pigment and skin discoloration, wrinkles and texture problems. Medium peels don’t require anesthesia, though you may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation at first. Depending on the level and duration of your peel, you may experience considerable swelling, which will diminish within a week. You can resume regular activities after a week to 10 days.

Deep Peels

These extremely strong peels offer dramatic results and are used to treat pre-cancerous skin growths, deep wrinkles and other significant skin damage. Deep peels in some patients may require local anesthesia with or without sedation, and treatment can take up to 1 hour for the full face. We will coat the treated area with a soothing, cooling agent after your peel. The treated area will scab within the first few days, and new skin will form beneath the scab after about 7-10 days. Typical recovery time where make-up can be worn is approximately 7-10 days but can last as long as 3 weeks. The results will progress over the next few months. Dr. Galante does not recommend deep peels for people with darker complexions, as the peel can lighten and at times darken skin tone.

Specific Peel Options

Dr. Galante offers a menu of peels that can address the specific needs of each patient.

Skin Medica Peels

These peels treat mild to moderate skin imperfections (allow 30 mins). Prices start at $50

  • Rejuvenize: Moderate to severe imperfections, improves overall skin condition, tone, and texture. Addresses skin unevenness. Best results after 3 to 6 peels.

VI Aesthetics Chemical Peels

We recommend these peels for moderate to severe imperfections. Best results after 2 to 3 peels (allow 30-45 mins). Prices start at $190.

  • VI Peel: REVIVER peel for healthy, glowing skin.
  • VI Peel Precision Plus: The TRANSFORMATIVE peel for an even complexion.
