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.

"I highly recommend the staff at this facility. I’ve had surgeries, injections and also go regularly for Solissa to do her magic on my 60 year old skin:). Just had fillers from Nicole for the first time. What a great job she did! She was able to achieve a very natural but much improved look.....better than I could have imagined. She is truly talented and I’m very pleased! You will be too. Give them a try!"- W.K. / Yelp / Mar 11, 2021

"Amazing Results! Extremely Satisfied - I consulted Dr. Yaker for lipo on the inner thighs. After meeting with him and reviewing his results, I also had a “re-do” of lipo that was done by another surgeon on the flanks, back, and upper abdomen. Dr. Yaker is an amazing surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. His skill, attention to detail, and desire to do the best possible work-the first time, is why I will be seeing Dr. Yaker again should I need any other work done! I wish I had sought his services the first time. I am beyond pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Yaker!"- S. / RealSelf / Mar 02, 2021
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:

- 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.
