About Dermaplaning

If skin treatments like facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you want, but you are not interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin resurfacing treatments. Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide younger-looking, smoother skin quickly and efficiently.

Ideal Candidates

Dermaplaning is considered relatively safe and effective for most skin types and tones. Individuals suffering from severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:

  • Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
  • Have fine facial hair
  • Have sensitive skin
  • Have superficial hyperpigmentation

Procedure Technique

Dermaplaning treatments can be performed in our office as an outpatient procedure.   After the skin is cleansed, the procedure will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the skin with a surgical blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether a portion or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.

What to Expect

Following your dermaplaning session, you may find that your face is flushed. This is a normal side effect that will begin to subside in a matter of a couple of hours. You should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because your skin will be very sensitive in the weeks after the treatment. Expect to see results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin right away. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, the technician will discuss a recommended skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
