Dermaplaning Facial Treatment in Houston, TX
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is rapidly becoming a widely popular med spa treatment, and for years has been a favorite among celebrities who spend lots of time in the eye of the camera. Dermaplaning is a treatment that removes imperfections from the surface of the skin, and treats such conditions as:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Aging skin
- Hyper pigmentation
- Enlarged pores
Dermaplaning is also effective as a way to enhance absorption of specialized treatment products. The procedure also produces a smooth finish to the facial appearance, preparing the perfect canvas for flawless application of makeup!
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning is an extremely effective manual exfoliation technique that gently scrapes away layers of dead skin cells, surface debris, and peach fuzz using a surgical 10 blade. By removing the outermost layer of the skin, the procedure exposes a fresh new layer of skin that is ultra-smooth and glowing.
The removal of dead skin and peach fuzz makes a dramatic difference in the texture of the skin, producing a clean, vibrant, dewy glow that is hard to achieve by any other means.
For best results, dermaplaning may be performed at regular intervals in order to maintain consistent results and gradually remove such things as acne scars and brown age spots. You must be diligent in protecting your skin from excess sun exposure after a dermaplaning procedure, as your skin will be very vulnerable when exposed.

Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a great option for almost any skin type. Good candidates will be those with healthy skin who are looking to eliminate vellus hair, dead skin cells, and dirt from their skin for a smoother, more radiant complexion. Be sure to let our Medical Aestheticians know about any skincare concerns you have before treatment.
How long do the effects of dermaplaning last for?
The results of dermaplaning are not permanent. However, the results will last for three weeks to one month. After that time, another treatment will be needed to achieve the same results.
How do I prepare my skin for dermaplaning?
Prior to your dermaplaning appointment, there are some things you can do to prep your skin. Avoid exfoliating your skin for at least five days prior to treatment, stay out of the sun and avoid sunburn, and avoid dermaplaning at home. These steps will allow for your skin to be in the best shape for your dermaplaning appointment.
How is dermaplaning different than shaving?
Dermaplaning is not the same as shaving. Dermaplaning uses a smaller blade to slough away dead skin cells and vellus hair, so the skin is more even in its texture and tone. Overall, dermaplaning provides much better exfoliation than shaving and scrubs do.
What should I do after my dermaplaning appointment?
Following your dermaplaning appointment, avoid direct sun exposure for at least three days, avoid scrubs and exfoliators for one week, and avoid chlorine and extreme heat for 1 week. Also, be sure to apply the appropriate serums and moisturizers, and use sunscreen when outdoors. These steps will help you enjoy optimal benefits from dermaplaning.
