When skin rejuvenation treatments like microdermabrasion and facials are not helping you attain the outcome you desire, but you are not interested in more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning skin resurfacing. Dermaplaning is an exciting facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this treatment is completed with a careful scraping technique by a surgical scalpel. Our board-certified plastic surgeons are thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide younger-looking, smother skin safely and efficiently.

Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective skin treatments for nearly all skin tones. Individuals with severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. Ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Are searching for something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Do not have rosacea
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have uneven skin tone
Dermaplaning procedures are usually completed on an outpatient basis in our office. While you relax in our procedure room, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic will be smoothed over the treatment area. After cleaning the skin well, the dermaplaning will begin with a gentle scraping of the surface of the face with a scalpel. The technician will scrape each area until the face has been entirely treated. The amount of time needed for treatment will depend upon whether part of or the full face will be treated. At a consultation beforehand, we will help you to understand the procedure with clarity and create a customized treatment plan to fit your wants and needs.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, you should expect your face to be red and swollen. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. It's not uncommon for small amounts of peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to pull them off — you should allow the skin to heal on its own. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as the face will be sensitive in the days following the procedure. Patients can expect results soon after, as dermaplaning produces softer, smoother skin right away. To help you protect your refreshed skin, our team will discuss an improved skincare routine with you, including the highly recommended, daily application of sunscreen.
