dermaplaningDermaplaning:  treatment for softer skin, reduction in acne scarring and sun damage

Everyone can experience rough and lackluster skin or have facial hair that won’t respond to laser hair removal.  One solution to tackle these problems is dermaplaning. In this procedure, the skin’s epidermal layer is targeted to smooth and soften facial imperfections and enhance vibrancy.  With no downtime or lasers, you can be well on your way to achieving your skin’s original beauty in just one treatment.  After dermaplaning, make-up goes on smoother and the benefits of beautiful and softer skin are immediately noticeable.

Let our experienced treatment providers determine if this procedure is right for you. Visit us to see why our patients keep referring their friends and family to Helios-The Med Spa of Houston and The Woodlands, Texas.

What is dermaplaning and how is it performed?

Dermaplaning, commonly called microplaning, epi-blading or blading, involves softly moving a tiny blade across the extreme top layer of the skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking facial appearance, without any discomfort or downtime. With this skin rejuvenation treatment, your skin will typically look and feel more radiant in one treatment.

Can I combine other skin rejuvenation treatments with dermaplaning?

Yes, frequently our patients begin their treatment plan with a dermaplaning procedure to prepare their skin for other procedures such as chemical peels, laser genesisfacials or  photofacials. Our aestheticians  will evaluate your skin, listen to your goals and develop an individualized treatment plan that may include combination treatments.

What conditions can dermaplaning treat?

The dermaplane procedure is most often used to improve skin texture as a result of acne scarring (link to laser rejuvenation-laser genesis page)  or scars from accidents or surgical procedures but is also commonly used by patients who want revitalized and smoother facial skin or a lessening of acne scarring

How often can dermaplaning be performed?

Dermaplaning usually consists of 3 to 4 sessions, spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart. However, the patient typically sees immediate benefits from a single treatment.
