Skin rejuvenation treatments, such as facials and microdermabrasion, are great for helping you attain a smoother, brighter complexion. But before many of the most common skin treatments can be performed, one simple technique that is used to help soften the skin is dermaplaning. In many cases, dermaplaning is a stand-alone cosmetic treatment and is performed on many of our Salina, KS patients to help them attain a better complexion. Dermaplaning is a facial skin treatment that smoothens the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Also called dermablading, this treatment is completed with a careful scraping technique with a small, delicate facial blade. Oral, Facial, and Implant Surgery of Salina is proud to offer dermaplaning treatments to our Salina, KS patients. Dermaplaning is popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin successfully.

Dermablading and dermaplaning are safe and effective solutions for many skin types. Men and women with severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. 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 completed inside our office in a matter of a few minutes. Once your skin is cleaned, the dermaplaning will begin with a gentle scraping of the skin's surface with a blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the face has been entirely treated. This process removes dead skin cells, fine facial hair, and other irregularities (such as skin flaking) that resides on the surface. The amount of time needed will depend upon whether a small portion or the full face will be treated. At a consultation beforehand, we will explain the process of the dermaplaning procedure to you.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you can expect your face to appear slightly red. This is a normal reaction that will fade in the coming days. It's not uncommon for some peeling to occur, but because dermaplaning is a lighter skin treatment, most patients do not experience high levels of peeling, like the more aggressive facial treatments produce. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as the face will be sensitive in the days and weeks following your procedure. You can expect results soon after as dermaplaning produces smoother, softer skin instantaneously. To help you care for your rejuvenated skin, our team will outline an improved skin care regimen with you, including the highly recommended daily application of sunscreen.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
No. Dermaplaning is a delicate treatment performed in a gentle manner. The scraping technique is slow and precise, and patients do not feel discomfort during it. This treatment only focuses on the surface level, scraping away any irregularity that resides on the very top layer of skin. This includes damaged skin cells and "peach fuzz" hair for smoother, healthier skin. The results will provide a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you ever look in your rearview mirror and notice a layer of hair (peach fuzz), this is something that is removed during a dermaplaning treatment and is one of the most common reasons why patients ask for dermaplaning. It is simple, affordable, noninvasive, and does not require any downtime, like a chemical peel. Dermaplaning removes old damaged skin and vellus hair for a softer, smoother facial appearance. This process also helps to remove trapped dirt and bacteria for a glowing complexion.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. This is actually a common myth. Hair that is gently scraped during a dermaplaning treatment will eventually grow back, but it will grow back in the same manner as before. The hair will not grow back thicker as if it was shaved with a regular razor. Dermaplaning is a unique technique, and it does not interfere in the natural hair production process.
How often should I get dermaplaning?
We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. Talk to your aesthetician to determine when they think it's best for you to return for follow-up treatments.
