What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade for the removal of keratinized cells and fine vellus hair on the outer layer of the skin.

Morgenstern Center | Dermaplaning in Philadelphia

Men and women with an interest in dermaplaning can visit the Morgenstern Center in Philadelphia. With this popular cosmetic procedure, one can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone.

Long-term effects include higher cell turnover, minimized appearance of fine lines, and the removal of facial hair which creates the perfect canvas for makeup application. We have facilities in Wayne and Lancaster that happily serve the residents and visitors of the Main Line, King of Prussia, New Jersey, and the neighboring tri-state areas.

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation treatment, similar to microdermabrasion. It’s a simple yet effective technique that is widely considered to be an excellent way to brighten and rejuvenate skin without invasive procedures.

The shaving technique can help to eliminate the dry upper layer of skin to reveal smoother skin beneath.

It also successfully removes “peach fuzz” and facial hair (and contrary to popular belief, there is nothing that shows shaving causes hair to grow back thicker or darker).

Combining dermaplaning with other treatments, such as microneedling, microdermabrasion, or even laser treatments, can help boost results and increase their effectiveness.

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that uses basic shaving techniques to help deliver a remarkable result.

While it sounds simple enough to do yourself, dermaplaning is best performed under the supervision of a facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Kenneth Morgenstern, MD, FACS.

Our facility uses sterile blades and professional techniques, such as using deliberate 45-degree angles and fluid motions to remove dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris. After the procedure, our Philadelphia Dermaplaning patients or thier technician can apply hydrating serums, moisturizers, or even receive a chemical peel for more in-depth exfoliation.

There are at-home dermaplaning options available and patients can visit a local beauty supply or drug store to pick up a dermaplaning blade.

However, many facial plastic surgeons and aestheticians do not recommend at-home dermaplaning.

While it may seem as simple as shaving your face, not using the proper technique can lead to scratching, cutting, or irritating the skin. Additionally, these cosmetic professionals understand the nature of the skin and how to carefully manipulate it to deliver precise, fluid movements.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Many patients opt for dermaplaning as a way to brighten their skin and reduce blemishes and visible scarring or rough patches. Since it is non-invasive and gentle, many opt for this as a relaxing facial procedure in conjunction with regular skincare and maintenance.

For make-up enthusiasts, dermaplaning allows for a smoother surface that absorbs products with ease and helps create a cleaner final result. Additionally, dermaplaning can scrap away bacteria or dirt that accumulates on the surface of your skin.

Patients who want to slow or reduce signs of aging can also benefit from regular dermaplaning, as it helps to reduce fine lines and boost cellular regeneration.

Dermaplaning is an incredible cosmetic procedure sweeping the nation. For many who cannot get other rejuvenating treatments, dermaplaning is an option that helps to brighten skin and reduce visible imperfections.

Almost anyone can get dermaplaning, as it can safely be performed on all skin types. Those who have severe acne or are prone to acne breakouts might be advised to avoid dermaplaning.

The best way to determine whether dermaplaning is a good choice for you, whether as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with another procedure, is to schedule a consultation with a licensed professional.

For residents of Philadelphia, the Morgenstern Center for Orbital & Facial Plastic Surgery offers consultations at both of our locations.

Scheduling a Consultation for Dermaplaning

Before undergoing any type of cosmetic enhancements or facial plastic surgery, patients should sit down with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

This will help them understand any risks, the procedures, and get a professional recommendation about how to best achieve their beauty goals.

At the Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery, our goal is to deliver the best Dermaplaning Philadelphia has to offer. We sit down with each patient individually to perform a skin evaluation and discuss your goals. Patients can schedule an appointment at either of our locations in Wayne or Lancaster, PA.
