What Is Dermaplaning?

Exfoliation is an important step in any beauty regimen. It can be done at home with a facial scrub or light chemical peel. Or someone could go the professional route and have their skin resurfaced at a spa using sand crystals, water or some other method of stripping the skin of its dull surface layer. Another way of exfoliation but on a professional level is a procedure called Dermaplaning.

Sometimes referred to as dermablading, the treatment uses a 10-gauge scalpel to precisely scrape off the top layer of skin, with the goal of revealing a smoother complexion. Other benefits of dermaplaning include creating a flawless surface by removing all facial hair or “peach fuzz.” For this reason, actors, models and those in the entertainment industry and whose face is featured on the big screen or in print are big fans. Does it have a role in dermatology? Dermaplaning is sometimes used by physicians to help prepare the skin when deeper penetration of products such as chemical peels is required.

Drawbacks and Limitations

Whether it’s done through microdermabrasion or performed with a dermaplaning blade, all superficial exfoliation procedures result in temporary improvements only. There may be a limited place in beauty for such procedures, perhaps to smooth the skin before a special occasion, but not as a serious solution for skin aging, pigmentation or various types of deeper scarring. Furthermore, dermaplaning is generally not recommended for those with oily or acne-prone skin. For patients with cystic acne in particular, this treatment is contraindicated altogether.

Azala Medical Aesthetics: Lasting Results with Proven Medical Skin Treatments
Long-lasting, tangible results are the objective at Azala Medical Aesthetics. Dr. Mosser has first-hand experience with many of the services available at spas and other medical clinics. As a result he’s chosen to work with proven medical procedures such as Botox or Dysport, dermal fillers and Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) to treat volume loss, lines and texture irregularities. To address more serious complexion problems such as hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scars, sun damage, deeper wrinkles, and vascular disorders, we recommend the powerful Halo fractional laser and BroadBand BBL devices by Sciton.

Another option to reverse skin aging, pigmentation and uneven texture is with the deep-penetrating face peel called Vi Peel. Two formulations are available. The traditional ViPeel contains Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Retin-A for deep exfoliation and the Precision Plus ViPeel adds Hydroquinone and Kojic acid to simultaneously address pigmentation problems such as melasma, sun spots and various types of scarring.

A good home care plan can also go a long way to maintain the skin’s health and youthful appearance. Whether patients choose to undergo any of the anti-aging treatments above, medical-grade skin care products are a must to prevent and treat skin aging and pigmentation issues. Our clinic offers only the highest quality products from reputable brands such Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Neocutis.
