Eliminate Dull Skin

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation therapy performed in-office by Dr. Luerssen, using a scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin cells and vellus hair—peach fuzz. Similar to shaving, it's often done on the face, but because the doctor uses a scalpel rather than a razor, the results are more substantial than what you can do at home.

Refined Improvements

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning can improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and skin tone while also smoothing out the texture of your skin. It’s even a suitable exfoliating option for most skin types, unlike other treatment choices that irritate sensitive skin or result in hyperpigmentation.

Experience Smoother Skin

Am I a good candidate for Dermaplaning?

Almost every skin type can benefit from dermaplaning, including those with rosacea or severely sensitive skin. However, Dermaplaning might not be the best option if you have acne-prone skin or suffer from infections or other complications at the treatment site. To further discuss your potential as a candidate and address any finer details with your treatment, consult Dr. Luerssen.

How does it work?

Your Dermaplaning Procedure

To eliminate extra oil, your skin is first prepared with an alcohol swab. There’s usually no need for topical numbing lotion or local anesthetic because the process tends to be painless. Dr. Luerssen may gently stretch each region of skin with one hand until it is tight and smooth, after which she will delicately run the scalpel over the skin's surface and remove any facial hair and dead skin cells with swift, short strokes. Most sessions last 20 to 30 minutes. Since exfoliating leaves your skin more sensitive to the sun, most treatments also include applying sunscreen at the end.

Minimal Downtime

Dermaplaning Recovery

With Dermaplaning Carmel patients have very low actual downtime, and you’re safe to resume regular activity right after your session. You might notice some redness in your skin, but this is normal and tends to fade within an hour.

You should consider avoiding the sun and high heat for three to five days and using sunscreen to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Reduce the amount of time spent exfoliating at home for the same length of time to lessen the chance of causing irritation.

Even though there’s such a simple recovery process to the practice, Dr. Luerssen still works closely with you post-treatment to ensure that your therapy plan goes—and stays—as smooth as it can.

Smoother, Healthier Skin

Dermaplaning Results

You’ll notice that your skin will look smoother, healthier, and more youthful immediately after treatment. Even though Dermaplaning results aren’t permanent, they have been reported to last anywhere from three to four weeks—a considerable length for how lightweight the treatment is.

Since it’s such an easygoing practice, touch-up appointments are reasonably straightforward. They’re usually best made four to six weeks apart to maintain your look, but this can vary depending on how your body responds to the therapy.
