What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure that uses a special instrument to shave off the superficial layer of dead skin cells. It can be a deep aggressive shaving to improve acne scars, or it can be a light, gentle procedure best used for relatively healthy, smooth skin. At the Dallas Surgical Arts Skin Care Center, Dermaplaning is a procedure that can be a stand alone procedure, combined with an Enzyme Facial or apart of the SkinCeuticals Micropeel three-step clinical procedure.

By combining Dermaplaning (physical exfoliation), chemical exfoliation, and cryogenic therapy in three steps, it is possible to substantially reduce signs of photoaging including fine lines, brown spots, wrinkles, dullness, and visible skin imperfections, with a series of 4-6 procedures.

This treatment removes the dead cellular layers of skin by gentle shaving the surface after softening the dead cell layer with special exfoliating compounds. Each treatment leaves the skin smooth, clear, and slightly pink for a few hours.

The treatment stimulates new collagen formation to help fill fine lines and improve skin elasticity. You will feel a dramatic improvement in your skin texture. It also removes fine vellus facial hair.

The SkinCeuticals Micropeel three-step procedure takes about forty-five minutes to treat the whole face. Smaller areas may be treated in a shorter time. No anesthesia is necessary.

Aside from a little pink color, there is no visible change in the skin, so you may return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. However, the skin will be silky smooth, bright and clear. The procedure is usually performed at regular intervals to maintain the best skin color, texture, and clarity. The interval is adjusted based on the individual needs of the patient.

You will love the improvement it provides!
