Dr. Christi and her team recently added an exciting skin treatment called Dermaplaning in their Houston, Texas medical spa. It is safe, effective and keeps your skin healthy, glowing and radiant so you can look and feel your best!

With our dermaplane facial, patients combat dead skin cells that occur as a part of the aging process. This is accomplished by the exfoliation during the treatment, removing your skin’s dead skin cells, oil and dirt on the top layer of your face so it looks smooth and rejuvenated. The results are instantly amazing! This process also helps people who have scarring or uneven skin tone.

Call our office at 281-717-4003 to see if you are a candidate for Dermaplaning to achieve smoother, softer skin!

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a fast, unique, chemical-free way to exfoliate your skin and promote glowing skin by gently removing the top laying of dead skin cell and vellus hair. A Dermaplaning blade will be used to gently scrape away the dead skin cells, oil and dirt. It is a relaxing and pain-free treatment, unlike most other hair removal methods! If you have especially dry or dull skin, this treatment is perfect for you!

Benefits of Dermaplaning:

  • Visible results instantly
  • Encourages cell turnover
  • Diminishes dry, dull skin
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishes acne scarring
  • Diminishes dark spots
  • Allows other facial treatments to penetrate deeper
  • Smooths texture of skin
  • Prevents clogged pores

When should I see results?

You will see results immediately! This treatment is non-invasive and painless. You can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. If you have sensitive skin, the area may redden slightly but should go away quickly. Your makeup will look smoother, and it allows other skin products to penetrate more deeply and increase effectiveness.

What areas can be treated?

Dermaplaning is only recommended for the face.

How long does Dermaplaning last?

The treatment only takes about 30-45 minutes. Dermaplaning removes approximately 21 days of dead skin cells. The effects of Dermaplaning usually last approximately 3-4 weeks for most patients. You’ll want to wait 3-4 weeks between Dermaplaning treatments.

Is Dermaplaning safe?

ChristiMD Medical Group only uses the safest methods to leave your skin soft and manicured! Dermaplaning is safe when performed by a properly trained skincare professional. You will not experience razor burn. Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun after Dermaplaning, as with any facial treatment or exfoliation, so you may want to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30) if you will be exposed to direct sunlight. You can apply makeup immediately after this procedure.

Will my hair grow back thicker and/or darker?

Dermaplaning only removes vellus hair on the surface of the skin, which is the “peach fuzz” on your face. It does not affect the follicular structure of the hair, so it will have no effect on hair growth. It will grow back at the same rate, color and texture as before, no matter how many times you undergo Dermaplaning.

Does Dermaplaning get rid of wrinkles?

Dermaplaning can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Dead skin cells can accumulate in the fine lines and wrinkles. By exfoliating the surface of the skin with Dermaplaning, fine lines and wrinkles will diminish.

Can other treatments be combined with Dermaplaning?

Absolutely! Dermaplaning prepares the skin to allow other treatments and skin products to deeply penetrate the skin, rendering them more effective! Many patients combine Dermaplaning with Laser Genesis for maximum results. Laser Genesis is a skin rejuvenation treatment that targets rosacea, wrinkles and scars. It reduces redness and improves texture and skin tone. You will see dramatic results! You can also combine Dermaplaning with Secret RF, which has been called “The Natural Facelift!” Secret RF combats the signs of aging, sagging skin, wrinkles, acne scars, photoaging or striae. The ChristiMD Medical Group will discuss your skin wellness goals to determine which combination of treatments are right for you!

Am I candidate for Dermaplaning?

Some skin types are not suitable for Dermaplaning. If you have active breakouts or cuts on your face, you may not be a candidate for Dermaplaning. The staff at ChristiMD Medical Group will determine if your skin is suitable to undergo Dermaplaning. This facial treatment is great for most patients, even if you are taking Accutane or Retin-A.

The ChristiMD Medical Group will discuss your skincare routine with you to determine if Dermaplaning is right for you! Give us a call at 281.542.8124 to schedule your consultation!
