Dermaplaning is a natural and safe form of exfoliation. Essent Spa, serving patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, offers dermaplaning and a variety of other spa and medical spa treatments to improve your skin’s pore size, texture, and elasticity resulting in a younger-looking appearance.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe professional procedure for mechanical exfoliating dead skin cells and ridding the skin of your face of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).
It is an technically advanced add-on to a facial which is considered a safe, natural and chemical free way to exfoliate your skin.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning exposes newer, fresher, and more healthy skin. Your skin will glow immediately after your facial!
By removing the vellus hairs, your makeup can be applied flawlessly. Also, dermaplaning opens your skin so that the products that are used during your facial can be better absorbed into your skin. For this reason, dermaplaning is often done in conjunction with chemical peels.
What will the procedure be like?
This procedure is done using a special sterile, medical grade, disposable blade by a licensed esthetician. Because of the precision of this procedure, your esthetician will be able to treat the areas close to your lips and eyes which cannot be treated with lasers and microdermabrasion. For the best results, we recommend you have this procedure done as part of a series of 6 treatments every two weeks. This is often combined with a chemical peel.
Not all estheticians have the necessary skill and training to safely perform this procedure. Be sure you are visiting a physician owned and operated practice.
Totally awesome experience! Left completely free of lower back pain. Staff thought of everything. The spa itself is new, with comfortable, clean spaces. Experienced professional staff made sure my experience was excellent. I'll be back! Click here to read more Five Star Yelp Review: Peter

Amazing that it took so long for a great spa to open on the Main Line but it finally has! I had a great massage at Essent and plan to go back often. Relaxing environment, great therapist and incredibly friendly staff. Click Here to Read More Five Star Google Review: Brian
I have been here a few times and every time I feel like a princess! Very relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. I see Billie Jo who is by far the best esthetician I have ever seen. She makes you feel comfortable, special, and relaxed. I would definitely recommend going here! Click Here to Read More Five Star Review Yelp: Kristy
Finally a resort quality medical spa in a convenient location. I received a gift of an 80 min Ultimate Massage at Essent Spa. This was my first visit to the spa. That was incredible! I have had the opportunity to visit some medical spas in Australia, SoCal, and Philadelphia. So I can honestly say that Essent Spa is first class. The location is great - you don't have to travel into the city, easy to get to (just off I476), great parking. The facilities are resort quality - beautifully decorated, private and tranquil spaces. They offer a wide selection of services. Highly professional and skilled doctors and service providers. Very attentive to your needs. I am looking forward to my next visit!

I've had Botox previously but never had such great results! I look rested and my skin looks smooth but natural. The lip pop is a great way to get fuller lips without lip filler...and very affordable at only $50! Thanks Jen! I'm really happy with my results!! Click here to read more Five Star Review Yelp: Karen
Had a very pleasant experience with Lis. I had a facial and dermaplaning done, and from the second I walked in, to the second I left, I felt comfortable and relaxed. The look of the spa is breathtaking, and you will no doubt leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. Lissy was very professional and very gentle. Best Facial I've had to date, hands down. Looking forward to coming back again very soon! Try Essent Spa, you won't be disappointed! Click Here to read more Five Star Yelp Review: Jessie
My experiences with Essent Spa have been wonderful all around, and I HIGHLY recommend Jen Perry!! She is incredible. I have seen her for facial fillers, and I am not only over the moon with the results, but also grateful for her process. She truly listens. She always considers my unique goals and concerns and is exceedingly careful and thoughtful (when other doctors or techs would push a prescriptive one-size-fits-all solution that doesn't account for your concerns). She is super friendly and disarming, and always follows up which makes a world of difference as well. She's very accommodating and genuinely wants to help. I cannot recommend her enough!
