What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a gentle yet effective way to exfoliate the skin. It removes dead skin cells from the outermost layer of skin leaving a soft glow to the skin. In the process, fine vellus facial hair is also removed leaving the skin incredibly smooth. With this simple, safe, and effective skin rejuvenation treatment, Medical Aesthetician Annie Christenson at Brissett Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX provides this treatment for patients who want to revitalize their skin. The “Go With a Glow” facial treatment is the most requested treatment. It is a great way to get an exfoliation with no downtime using the dermaplaning and that’s appropriate for virtually all patients.

What happens during DERMAPLANING?
With dermaplaning, this non-invasive procedure is pain free and is used with a facial or a peel. It gently removes the dead skin cells, debris, and fine hair of the top layer of skin. The professional will use short, feathering strokes to improve the appearance of the face. The entire face from the forehead to the chin will be treated and will benefit from dermaplaning. Treatments are performed with a facial or a peel and can be enjoyed about once a month for optimal results.
What Results can I expect from DERMAPLANING?
With dermaplaning, there’s no downtime, but there are instantaneous results. Right after a treatment, patients will notice more radiant skin that has a more even tone and texture. The skin will look more youthful and rejuvenated. Also, the skin will look and feel smoother since fine hair was removed. It’s recommended to get a series of treatments for the best results.
Is dermaplaning painful?
No, dermaplanining should not hurt. A majority of patients experience no discomfort during a dermaplaning treatment because it only targets the top layer of their skin. Dermaplaning gently removes damaged and old skin cells along with fine hairs to leave you with younger, fresher skin. This gives you a rejuvenated appearance.
Will your peach fuzz grow back thicker?
No, your hair will not grow back thicker after dermaplaning. It is a common misconception that dermaplaning is likely to make your peach fuzz hair grow back thicker, but it doesn't interfere with the normal hair growth process or make it grow back thicker. Dermaplaning eliminates the very top layer of skin along with vellus hair, which does not impact hair thickness or color. Keep in mind that factors like hormone changes may affect hair thickness and growth.
How often should I get dermaplaning done?
For most patients, we will recommend a dermaplaning treatment every 4 – 6 weeks. Of course, this depends on your skin type and any existing concerns you wish to address. During your initial consultation and dermaplaning treatment at our Houston, TX office, your aesthetician can answer any questions you have and help you develop a treatment plan that will best achieve your aesthetic goals.
Can dermaplaning be done at home?
You might have seen at-home kits for dermaplaning, but these are not recommended without professional supervision. At-home dermaplaning treatments can easily lead to cuts, nicks, and other harm to the top layer of facial skin. It is best to leave dermaplaning to a trained professional who is approved to use a scalpel with precision.
