Dermaplaning in DFW, Texas

There are few trained professionals in Dallas FW, Texas who are dermaplaning experts. You may not have ever heard of this amazing and effective skin care treatment. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive and non-surgical skin care treatment used to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliating means to remove the dirt, debris and dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin. Over time, debris and dead skin cells build up causing the skin to look dull and dry. A very delicate blade, similar to that used for shaving, is used to remove the upper layer of dead skin and debris, which allows the healthy newer skin cells of the face to come to the surface. After this simple procedure, your skin’s healthy, natural glow and radiance is restored.

What kind of results should I expect from Dermaplaning?

Results from dermaplaning skin care treatment are immediate and typically last about 3 or 4 weeks. Your skin will not only look younger, healthier and more radiant, it will feel amazing. With a much smoother texture, makeup application is easier and has a remarkably enhanced appearance.

Who can perform a dermaplaning skin care treatment?

Dermaplaning must be performed by a licensed skin care professional, or medical aesthetician, with training specific in the dermaplaning procedure. Our medical aesthetician is licensed by the state of Texas to perform the full scope of medical aesthetian services.. In addition to being licensed, our medical aesthetician has also undergone extensive training and is a master of the dermaplaning procedure.

Does dermaplaning hurt?

Dermaplaning does not hurt. In fact, most people undergoing a dermaplaning procedure describe the sensation as pleasant. No anesthesia or numbing medicines are necessary.

How long does dermaplaning take to perform?

The dermaplaning process takes about 30 minutes. However, treatment begins with a gentle deep cleansing of the skin and ends with a calming masque and application of a makeup touch-up. So, patients should allow about 45-60 for the treatment.

How often should I have dermaplaning done?

For most patients, the skin-enhancing effects of dermaplaning lasts about 3-4 weeks. It is generally safe to repeat the procedure after 2-3 weeks, depending on the patient’s unique skin type and whether they have had other procedures performed.

Will dermaplaning make my facial hair grow faster or darker?

No. It is a common myth that shaving and similar procedures like dermaplaning will cause facial hair to grow faster, grow back fuller or become darker.. Dermaplaning will not make hair darker, fuller or cause hair to grow faster. In fact, one of the most beneficial effects of dermaplaning is to remove the vellus hair. Vellus hair is the short, fine, light-colored hair that covers all skin surfaces with only a few exceptions such as: the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, naval and lips.

Is there any down-time with dermaplaning?

There is no down-time with dermaplaning skin care procedures. Most people experience a very small amount of redness of the skin for just a few hours after the procedure. However, this is very easily concealed with make-up. A free makeup touch-up is included with the dermaplaning procedure.
