If skin treatments, such as facials and microdermabrasion, are no longer giving you the results that you want, but you aren't interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an innovative cosmetic procedure and facial treatment that smooths the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful look. Sometimes called dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. At Yonick Plastic Surgery in Midland, MI, Dr. David Yonick and his team are proud to offer dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is popular these days because it is minimally invasive and able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin successfully.

Dermaplaning is is a safe and effective solution for many skin types. Women and men suffering from severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Are suffering from rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments are typically performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. While you relax in a comfortable chair, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream will be applied to the the skin that will be treated. Next the skin will be cleaned and the technician will begin to carefully skim the skin's surface with the blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether small portion, or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, the dermaplaning process will be explained to you.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning treatment, you can expect your face to be a tad red and swollen. These are normal side effects and will fade in the coming days. It is common for some scabbing to occur as the skin heals. But it is important not to scratch them, you should leave the scabs to fall off naturally. You will need to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because your skin will be very sensitive in the days and weeks following your treatment. You can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals smoother, softer skin right away. To help you care for your rejuvenated skin, the technician will outline an improved skincare regimen with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
