If skin treatments, like microdermabrasion and facials, are no longer giving you the results that you want, but you are not ready for lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin resurfacing. Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, more youthful look. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Our talented cosmetic staff is thrilled to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide beautiful, smooth skin safely and efficien
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective skin treatment for nearly all skin tones. Those suffering from severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Are suffering from rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplane treatments are usually performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. While you relax in a comfortable treatment chair, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic will be applied to the the treatment area. After cleaning the skin well, the technician will gently skim the surface of the face with the scalpel. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether part of, or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, we will help you to understand the procedure with clarity.
After your dermaplaning session, you should expect your face to be a bit swollen and red. These are normal side effects and will subside in the coming days. It is common for small amounts of scabbing to occur as the skin heals. But it is important not to pull them off, you should allow the scabs to fall off naturally. You are not recommended to withstand prolonged exposure to the sun because your skin will be very sensitive in the days following the treatment. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin immediately. To help you protect your refreshed skin, our esthetician will discuss an improved skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
