John Williams Plastic Surgery offers dermaplaning for Scottsdale, AZ patients desiring nonsurgical skin rejuvenation. This treatment uses a surgical tool to semi-aggressively scrape the top layers of skin to initiate new skin growth. The tip of the surgical tool opens up the skin, sometimes reaching the dermis. The result is new skin that is brighter, softer, and free from ultra-fine hair and skin irregularities, such as age spots, blemishes, fine lines, and scarring. Dermaplaning is considered a popular treatment; however, during the initial consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, he will discuss if it is the best approach or if a chemical peel or a facial should be considered.

Best Candidates

Dermaplaning is suitable for both men and women. Any individual with skin irregularities may consider this treatment. It’s effective for those who have acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, abnormal skin growths, and fine lines. Those using prescription acne medication or who have severe acne should not undergo dermaplaning.

What to Expect

Dermaplaning penetrates the skin as deep as the dermal layer, depending on the skin irregularity being treated. The skin is first prepared with a cooling agent so that it becomes firm, which allows the burring process to become easier. The skin is then slightly stretched and dermaplaning tool is rolled back and forth over the skin until the appropriate amount of scraping has occurred. This may cause pin point bleeding, which is expected. This treatment helps the skin get a kick start to new skin cell regrowth and collagen production.

Dermaplaning Recovery

Dermaplaning recovery varies by patient. For a lighter treatment, patients can resume normal activities pretty quickly, within 1-2 days and may be able to hide the redness and peeling with some light makeup. If a more invasive approach was taken and a deeper treatment performed, patients can expect about 10-14 days for the redness, swelling and peeling to subside. The new skin will look pink and gradually fade to a more natural skin color. Sun exposure must be avoided to ensure proper skin healing.
