What is Dermaplaning?
If skin rejuvenation treatments, like facials and microdermabrasion, are not helping you attain your desired results, but you want to avoid lasers and more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a popular skin and facial treatment that smoothes the surface of the skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, more youthful complexion. Sometimes known as dermablading, this treatment is performed with a special blade tool using careful scraping techniques. Board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer is pleased to offer dermaplaning treatments at Evolve Med Spa in Dallas, TX. The procedure is becoming more popular these days because it is a nonsurgical option that typically results in smoother, younger-looking skin.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
Dead skin cells and fine facial hair can make your skin appear dull and contribute to clogged pores. Dermaplaning treatment exfoliates the skin to reveal a smoother and brighter-looking complexion. Evolve Med Spa is proud to offer dermaplaning for the following reasons:
- Safe: Dermaplaning is a relatively safe and gentle cosmetic procedure with minimal risk of side effects.
- Nonsurgical: Treatment does not require incisions or injections, making it a good alternative for patients who want to avoid invasive cosmetic procedures.
- Effective: Patients typically see immediate results after dermaplaning, with continued improvement over time.
Is Dermaplaning Right for Me?
Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective solutions for most skin types. Individuals who experience severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. You may be an ideal candidate for dermaplaning if you:
- Are searching for something other than chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Do not have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Do not have sensitive skin
- Have uneven skin tone

Our Dermaplaning Technique
Dermaplaning procedures are performed on an outpatient basis by our licensed aesthetician in our Dallas, TX office. After the skin is cleaned, the treatment will begin by carefully scraping the skin's surface with a blade. The technician will scrape the treatment area until the face has been evenly treated. You may feel a tingling sensation during your treatment, but you are not likely to feel any pain. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether we are treating your entire face or a small portion. At your consultation, Dr. Shimer will let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.
After Your Dermaplaning Procedure
Following your dermaplaning treatment, you may notice some slight facial redness. This is a normal side effect that will fade in the coming days. It is common for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it is important not to scratch it — this helps the healing process. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun as the face will be very sensitive in the days and weeks following the procedure. You can expect quick results, as dermaplaning typically reveals smoother, softer skin right away. Following the treatment, Dr. Shimer's team will help you design a treatment regimen to protect your skin.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
Dermaplaning costs are calculated according to facility fees, number of sessions, the treatment plan you've chosen, and whether or not you want to include other complementary procedures. During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and work with you to create the right dermaplaning plan. Once your treatment plan is finalized, we can estimate your costs.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
No, it doesn't. Dermaplaning is a noninvasive procedure that only targets the outer layers of the skin. Most patients don't feel any discomfort as the old, damaged skin cells and peach fuzz are gently removed to reveal the healthy new skin underneath.
Is dermaplaning good for the skin?
Yes, it is. Because dermaplaning removes dead, damaged skin cells, it allows the newer, softer, healthier skin complexion beneath to be revealed. Also, because the old skin cells are removed, it takes away another factor that can clog pores and dull the complexion.
Does dermaplaning cause hair to grow back thicker?
No, it doesn't. While it's a popular myth, dermaplaning doesn't cause hair to grow back thicker because it does not disrupt the natural hair growth cycle.
How frequently should I get dermaplaning?
We typically suggest that you get a dermaplaning treatment monthly or every 4 – 6 weeks to prolong top-tier results. Speak with your aesthetician to determine when they think it's ideal for you to come back for follow-up sessions.
Is there any downtime after a dermaplaning treatment?
There is typically no downtime after a dermaplaning treatment. Some mild redness may occur, but it usually subsides within a few hours.
