Dermaplaning continues to grow in popularity each year among patients who are no longer getting their desired results with their current skin care routine, as well as those men and women who would like to boost their skin care regimen without resorting to invasive procedures requiring a lengthy recovery period. At AestheticFX Med Spa in Frisco, TX, board-certified nurse practitioner Beverly Farris and our team of skin specialists offer multiple solutions for conveniently and effectively enhancing your complexion, including dermaplaning. For the quickest healing process, the most successful outcome, and the longest-lasting results possible, use the helpful tips here to prepare for your treatment and care for your skin properly after dermaplaning.

What happens during dermaplaning?

Also known as dermablading, dermaplaning is performed using a specialized medical-grade blade similar to a scalpel. One of our experienced providers will pass the blade over the skin to carefully and precisely "scrape" off dead and damaged skin cells, "peach fuzz," debris, and more — allowing healthier, smoother, clearer skin to shine through.

What skin problems can be improved with dermablading?

Some of the most common skin concerns that patients can have addressed with our dermablading treatments in Frisco, TX include:

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Recurrent acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dull skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Peach fuzz or fine facial hair
  • Inconsistent application of makeup

What will my skin look like right after dermaplaning?

Almost immediately following a dermaplaning treatment, it is normal to experience some mild redness, swelling, irritation, and even peeling as the skin heals and new, healthy layers of skin are revealed. These side effects are typically mild and temporary, usually resolving on their own within just a few days or even sooner in some cases.

Do I need to do anything to my skin before dermaplaning?

Prior to your dermaplaning treatment, we may recommend removing all makeup, creams, and skin care products. It is also advisable to avoid tanning and sun exposure, which can make the skin more sensitive during treatment. Right before your dermaplaning treatment, we will cleanse and prepare the skin to ensure it is free of dirt, oil, and debris.

What should I put on my skin after dermablading?

Following your dermaplaning treatment, our team will cover proper aftercare instructions in detail. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and picking at the skin following dermaplaning, which can delay healing and lead to complications like discoloration, infection, and even scarring. To protect your newly treated skin, encourage a swift and complete healing process, and keep your complexion looking its best, we may recommend using a combination of the following after your dermablading treatment:

  • Gentle skin cleanser
  • Moisturizer
  • Sunscreen

Will I have stubble after dermaplaning?

Many patients worry that dermaplaning will result in the regrowth of thicker, darker, or coarser hair — giving them unwanted facial stubble. In reality, dermaplaning does not affect the natural growth cycle of the hair and will not result in thicker or darker hair growth than was present previously. If you have any questions or concerns about how your skin and hair may change after dermaplaning, don't hesitate to ask one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members.
