Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

Real patient | Claytor Noone Plastic Surgery | Bryn Mawr, PA

Dermaplaning is a perfect treatment for individuals with extremely sensitive skin who want to improve their facial appearance without surgery. This is a physical exfoliation using a scalpel to scrape off the outer most epidermal layers of the skin to improve the texture by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to removing unwanted facial hair.

Patients could benefit from this procedure who want to treat acne prone skin, hyper-pigmentation, sun damage and shrink large pores. Chemical peels may be incorporated in addition to achieve optimal results depending on your skins specific needs.

Who is a candidate for Dermaplaning?

Candidates for dermaplaning can have any skin type, and want to see a transformation in their texture and pores. Patients should have realistic goals before having any facial procedures performed. Any additional questions about the procedure can be asked to Dr. Claytor.

How Does Dermaplaning Compare To Microneedling?

Dermaplaning and microneedling both provide dramatic results to the skin, but in different ways. Microneedling creates microscopic punctures in the skin to create an immediate response in the skin to heal. This produces new skin and collagen which enhances the patients facial appearance. While the dermaplaning procedure is a surface procedure that exfoliates dead skin and “peach fuzz”. The patient can call 610-527-4833 to figure out which procedure would work for them.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair. Exfoliation helps your skincare products penetrate the skin and improves their results. Dermaplaning removes excess fine hairs which are known for trapping the dirt, oil and dead skin cells in your pores that are the main cause of acne and blemishes. The dermaplaning is safe for all skin types.

  • Exfoliation of dead skin
  • Removes trapped dirt and oil
  • May prevent formation of acne

Will I need to stay out of the sun after Dermaplaning?

You may be exposed to sunlight, but it is always best to wear SPF 30 or higher every day and remember to reapply and wear a hat if you will be exposed to sun for a long period of time.

“My experience with Dr. Claytor was fantastic from beginning to end. The appointments all started right on time. The nurses and staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. On the day of my procedure Dr. Claytor and his staff put me at ease.”      – Lynanne

How soon after treatment can I wear makeup?

After a Dermaplaning treatment it is best to not wear makeup the rest of the day (24 hours if possible).Avoid products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, retinol, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment. You may resume your regular skin care routine 24 hours after treatment.
