Dermaplaning - Facial Treatment

Dermaplaning is an advanced method of mechanical exfoliation, which helps to remove the top layer of dead skin cells through a controlled scraping.

The actual process involves using a #10 surgical scalpel and #3 surgical blade handle to take off the epithelial tissue of the stratum corneum, with no pain or downtime. This treatment effectively stimulates and rejuvenates the skin tissue, as well as removes fine facial hair that can trap excess dirt and oil, making the skin feel smooth and looking brighter. The hair will grow back over time but will not be courser as many believe. Dermaplaning refines the skin, allowing for better absorption of topical ingredients.

At Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology, we often use Dermaplaning as a stand-alone treatment, or to "boost" some of our most common treatments, such as chemical peels. The treatment costs $130.

"light duty" skin rejuvenation with the following benefits:

  • no pain/downtime
  • skin feels smoother
  • (temporary) facial hair removal

Dermaplaning can be used to treat a multitude of skin imperfections and can be used on most skin types safely and effectively. An ideal candidate is anyone with pigmentation irregularities, or dull, clogged skin. It may be preferred by some patients who are not candidates for chemical exfoliation or microdermabrasion as well as ethnic skin because it is less likely to produce extreme changes and contrast in skin color.

Dermaplaning is an effective procedure in particular for women over 35 years old whose skin has lost some of the hydration capability they used to have in younger age. Performing this treatment on men is not recommended due to the histology of their facial hair. We recommend that Dermaplaning only be done by a trained professional as an in-office procedure. The standard interval for a Dermaplaning treatment is once a month for 3-4 months, and as needed thereafter.

Who can benefit?

  • all skin types
  • usually women over 35 years old
  • anyone with pigmentation irregularities / dull / clogged skin
  • anyone who is not a candidate for chemical peels

Dermaplaning has been featured on several media outlets, such as Real Housewives of NYC and The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.

I liked all rthe art work that was hanging up in the hallways. I also liked how friendly everyone was. It seemed as though they all wanted to be here. Some times at otjher places the people at the counter can be disrespectful. Not here. The or was very caring and explained the treatment in terms that we could understand.
