Dermaplaning Q&A

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment that uses a sharp, exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells and unwanted hair from the surface of your face. 

The goal of dermaplaning is to make your skin radiant and youthful. By removing acne scars, pockmarks, and peach fuzz, it’s possible to restore your face to a vibrant condition.

What types of skin problems can dermaplaning address?

Dermaplaning is incredibly versatile. At Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics, the team uses dermaplaning to improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine wrinkles

Dermaplaning can also remove fine hairs that don’t respond to traditional treatments like shaving or waxing.

How does dermaplaning work?

During a dermaplaning appointment, you lie down on your back. Then, your Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics provider holds a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and gently drags it across the surface of your skin.

As the blade moves over your skin, it removes dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris that make you appear older than you are. Dermaplaning reveals newer, healthier skin cells underneath, a process that makes you appear younger.

Is dermaplaning safe?

Dermaplaning is safe and well-tolerated. During your appointment, it’s normal to feel a slight tingling sensation. However, this should subside as soon as your appointment ends. If you have sensitive skin, let your Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics provider know. They can apply a numbing spray or cream to your skin, ensuring you remain comfortable throughout treatment.

After completing your dermaplaning session, your provider applies a soothing aloe solution to your skin. They also apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh UV-rays.

Does dermaplaning present any side effects?

Following your dermaplaning appointment, it’s normal to experience some facial redness and irritation. Usually, this subsides within a day’s time. Some people also develop whiteheads or pimples a day or two after treatment. In rare cases, scarring or infection may occur.

If your skin appears swollen or bothers you in the days following your dermaplaning appointment, contact the team at Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics right away. They can provide you with tips and insights to ease discomfort and encourage healing.

Am I a good candidate for dermaplaning?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for dermaplaning, make an appointment at Dallas Family Medical & Aesthetics. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, your provider can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
