What is Dermaplaning?

When skin rejuvenation treatments, like microdermabrasion and facials, are not helping you attain the outcome you want, but you aren't interested in more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure and facial treatment that smoothes the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, more youthful look. Sometimes known as dermablading, this treatment is performed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Our aesthetic team is thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at Surface Skin Spa in Plano, TX. Dermaplaning is requested more these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin.

Ideal Candidates

Dermaplaning procedures are safe skin treatments for nearly all skin types. Individuals with severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:

  • Are seeking something other than chemical peels and microdermabrasion
  • Do not have rosacea
  • Have an abundance of fine facial hair
  • Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
  • Have superficial hyperpigmentation

Our Dermaplaning Technique

Dermaplaning treatments are usually performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. Once your skin is washed, the treatment will begin with a gentle scraping of the surface of the skin with a blade. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the face has been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether a section or the entire face will be addressed. During your consultation, we will be able to let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.

What to Expect

After your dermaplaning session, you can expect your face to be pinkish. These are normal side effects that will subside in the coming days. It's not uncommon for peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to scratch them — you should allow the skin to heal on their own. Patients will need to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the face will be very sensitive in the weeks following the procedure. Expect to see results quickly as dermaplaning produces softer, smoother skin right away. To help you protect your newly revealed skin, our team will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost of your dermaplaning treatment will depend on facility fees, your unique treatment plan, the number of sessions needed to attain your goals, and if any other skin care procedure is combined. Once your custom dermal plan is developed, we can estimate your costs. Our office frequently offers specials and monthly promos so be sure to ask about this during your consultation. In addition, we provide discounts when you purchase multiple treatments.

Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you have an excess amount of "peach fuzz" or have tired-looking skin, then this is a great treatment option as it is simple, affordable, noninvasive, and does not require any downtime, like a chemical peel. Dermaplaning removes old damaged skin and vellus hair for a gorgeous profile. This process also helps to remove trapped dirt and bacteria, in addition to promoting collagen and elastin fibers for a glowing complexion.

How often should I get dermaplaning?
We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. Talk to your aesthetician to determine when they think it's best for you to return for follow-up treatments.
