Considering Dermaplaning? We Answer All of Your Questions

It’s no secret that bright, smooth skin is a coveted asset envied by many. The thing is, you need not envy when you can have a phenomenal complexion yourself. At Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic in Tyler, Texas, Dr. William Brelsford offers the latest in anti-aging dermatology treatments, including dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment so revolutionary you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. 

Considering dermaplaning? Here’s everything you need to know. 

What is dermaplaning? 

Also referred to as microplaning or blading, dermaplaning is an intensely exfoliating skin treatment that uses a small blade to scrape dead skin cells and hairs from your face. When you come in for a dermaplaning treatment, Dr. Brelsford aims to give your skin a more smooth, radiant, and youthful appearance. 

What can dermaplaning help with?

An exfoliating treatment, dermaplaning can help with a wide range of surface skin conditions. You can use dermaplaning to:


How does dermaplaning work?

Dr. Brelsford uses a small, handheld blade to scrape off unwanted matter on your face, such as dead skin, peach fuzz, and dirt. Sometimes called a “scalpel facial” because of the device used, dermaplaning goes deeper than just shaving the skin. Dermaplaning catches all of the culprits that result in uneven, dull, or bumpy skin. 

Is there any downtime after a dermaplaning treatment? 

No. You’re free to get right back to your daily activities when Dr. Brelsford completes your dermaplaning session. You may want to avoid direct sunlight for a couple of hours after your treatment, as your skin may be more sensitive than usual. If you exercise, make sure to wash your face right after to avoid a buildup of sweat and dirt in your newly scraped pores. 

Can I wear makeup after dermaplaning?

While your makeup would glide flawlessly onto your new smoother skin after your dermaplaning session, you should avoid slathering on any products right after treatment. Your skin may be more sensitive following dermaplaning, so stick to a simple moisturizer for 24 hours following your treatment.

Does dermaplaning hurt? 

Not at all! Think of shaving any other part of your body with a handheld razor. If you’re careful, you won’t suffer any nicks or cuts, and it won’t hurt. The same goes for dermaplaning. You’ll certainly feel the small blade on your skin, but Dr. Brelsford is an expert, and you can rest assured that your dermaplaning treatment will be pain-free. 

What should I expect during a dermaplaning treatment?

When you visit for your dermaplaning treatment, you’ll relax in a reclining chair while Dr. Brelsford gently exfoliates your skin with the small blade. You won’t need anesthesia because it’s painless, and the experience itself is rather relaxing. You’ll see results immediately after Dr. Brelsford finishes your treatment, and you’ll be free to get on with the rest of your day.
