Dermaplaning in Houston

Treat yourself to a smooth, youthful, and radiant face with our Dermaplaning service at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Because it is a gentle, non-surgical, and completely non-invasive treatment that reveals beautiful, smooth, and younger-looking skin with a natural glow, dermaplaning is the perfect procedure to rejuvenate your skin.

Dermaplaning gently shaves off the topmost, dead layers of your skin, removing hair and dead skin cells, and reducing the look of fine lines, acne scars, and other surface-level skin imperfections. If you are interested in Dermaplaning in Houston, call Dr. Layton and our experienced medical spa today.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the perfect treatment to combat acne scars, actinic keratosis, dull and dry skin, peach fuzz, and unwanted hair, reduce the signs of sun exposure, and improve the look of fine lines. Dermaplaning is not recommended for clients with extremely sensitive skin or who have active skin concerns or lesions on their face, including burns, active acne or cold sore outbreaks, eczema, psoriasis, or skin rashes (contact dermatitis). You can easily schedule our dermaplaning treatment during lunch and pain-free with no downtime or aftercare required.

In many cases, appointments must be scheduled regularly to maintain your new, radiant look, though your skin must heal fully between sessions. We recommend a dermaplaning treatment every six to eight weeks or as directed by our medical specialist.

Dermaplaning is designed to reduce the look of very surface-level imperfections, such as light acne scars. We recommend specialized treatments for deeper scars and blemishes, such as microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing. Discuss your treatment options with our medical specialist before your dermaplaning session if you are eligible for an advanced procedure.

What to Expect from a Dermaplaning Procedure?

Dermaplaning is a completely non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that is almost entirely pain-free. Dermaplaning doesn’t require anesthesia, but if you have extra-sensitive skin, our medical specialist may apply a topical numbing cream or spray on your face right before the procedure. Dr. Layton conducts the dermaplaning treatment with a unique instrument called a dermatome, similar to an electric razor.

The dermatome has a small metal blade that moves across your skin in a shaving motion. It does not cut your skin but gently shaves off the top dead layers of skin. This sloughs off dead skin cells, exfoliating your skin and gently resurfacing its texture. Dr. Layton may also apply a soothing gel or ointment to your skin to reduce redness, swelling, or irritation. These side effects are generally mild and will subside in hours, regardless. The dermaplaning treatment can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour and a half and is the perfect lunchtime treatment. However, we recommend you do not apply makeup or anything that may irritate your skin directly after your treatment.
