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.

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.
