Looking for that facial glow? Look no further than dermaplaning.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning (sometimes called blading) is a procedure used to exfoliate the skin and remove that unwanted “peach fuzz”. It is often considered an alternative to dermabrasion. Through the use of a scalpel, light, feathering strokes are used to gently remove the top layer of dead skin and facial hair to reveal smoother skin and a brighter complexion. This is a great procedure for women who want to exfoliate their skin, but want to avoid using chemicals, or other harsh treatments that are often not recommended.

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acne breakouts. If a patient has deep cystic acne, we encourage them to wait until after the breakout clears before having a dermaplane facial.

Why Choose a Dermaplane Facial?

To get that perfect, glowing look, patients in Dallas, Frisco and Plano, TX should consider a dermaplane facial. Dermaplaning is becoming one of the hottest skincare treatments available, especially in the entertainment industry. By removing hair and exfoliating the skin, dermaplaning evens out skin tone, eliminates acne scars and decreases fine wrinkles. After a dermaplaning facial, patients will experience a clean, and smooth complexion.

How is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning is painless and many patients compare the sensation to shaving. One of our highly-trained aestheticians will gently use a 10-gage sterile surgical blade to remove dead skin cells and “peach fuzz”. The blade is rubbed against the skin in the same motion as shaving. A mild peeling agent is used in combination with the dermaplaning tool to increase the amount of surface skin removed. This process triggers the regeneration of skin cells.

The procedure takes 30 minutes to perform. A full 21 to 30 days are usually recommended between treatments to ensure that the skin fully rejuvenates. In some cases, dermaplaning is also performed with other skincare treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels to penetrate deeper into the skin. Our skin care specialists at Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas can help you decide which procedures are best for your skin care goals.

What is the Cost of Dermaplaning?

The cost of dermaplaning may vary depending on the overall condition of the skin and how many treatments are required and/or desired for hair removal and exfoliation. Our aestheticians can give you a detailed cost during a consultation.
