What is Dermaplaning?
When skin rejuvenation treatments, like microdermabrasion and facials, are no longer giving you the outcome you want, but you are not ready for more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the skin by removing dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a radiant, youthful look. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is completed with a careful scraping technique with a facial blade. Our skilled aesthetic team is thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at Johnson Family Medical in Frisco, TX. Dermaplaning is very well known these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin.
Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermablading and dermaplaning are safe skin treatments for many skin types. Patients with severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Do not have rosacea
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation

How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning treatments are typically performed on an outpatient basis in our office. Once your skin is washed, the dermaplaning will begin with a careful skimming of the skin's surface with a facial blade. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the face has been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will depend upon whether a small portion or the entire face will be addressed. During your consultation, our team will help you to understand it with clarity.
What can I Expect after dermaplaning?
After your dermaplaning session, your skin may appear slightly pink. This is a normal side effect that will subside in the coming days. It's common for small amounts of peeling to occur as the skin heals. But it's important not to pull them off — instead, you should allow the skin to heal on its own. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as the skin will be sensitive in the weeks following the procedure. You can expect results soon after, as dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin immediately. To help you care for your newly revealed skin, the technician will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
