We are excited to share with you special cosmetic treatment for both the ladies and the guys which we now offer at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands. The technique of dermaplaning, which involves deep exfoliation treatment of the skin, has been in development for nearly 40 years. Both the tools and the technique have been refined giving us an incredibly effective and very safe procedure that we now offer.

Dermaplaning Treatment Omaha, NE

The best dermatologists know that in the realm of cosmetics, the quest for smoother, brighter skin is the pinnacle goal.

The purpose of dermaplaning is to smooth out the skin and remove superficial unwanted hairs. A special surgical scalpel is used to glide across the surface of the skin. During the dermaplaning procedure, the esthetician exfoliates your skin on the very top layer, known as the stratum corneum. It can also treat deep acne scars.

Fine hairs are also removed. We generally call these the vellus hairs. These hairs are fine and soft. The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Benefits Of Dermaplaning

The dermaplaning treatment removes the irregularities, excess layers of dead skin, as well as fine hairs. The results are smoother skin, giving lightening and brightening in the complexion. Effects of sun damage like fine lines and dullness in the skin can also improve.

Dermaplaning Pros & Cons

Results can vary from person to person, but in general, both men and women appreciate the improvement in their appearance. As an added plus for women, makeup application is easier. Makeup goes on more evenly/smoothly and removal is much easier after dermaplaning.

For those who have those fine fuzzy hairs (peach fuzz), just imagine how much nicer and smoother your makeup will look after the hairs are removed. For the guys, you can have a great deal of debris, especially dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Removing these can brighten your appearance and reduce acne breakouts.

Almost anyone can have dermaplaning performed, and the effects usually last about a month. For this reason, many of our patients come back for repeat sessions at monthly intervals.

The side effects are minimal. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, your skin may be a little tender or flushed. This will go away within a few hours. You should only use essential skincare products for about 48 hours after the procedure.

Pregnant women, people with mildly sensitive skin, and patients having some other cosmetic procedures like chemical peels can also have this procedure performed. Dermaplaning can be very helpful to prepare the skin before a chemical peel, making the peel even more effective.

Treatment Options

Want a bonus? Dermaplaning is very safe and PAINLESS!

In a few rare circumstances, dermaplaning should not be performed.  Patients with active or cystic acne must wait until the acne is better controlled before any treatments.

Not to worry there, we have several dermatology professionals in our clinics, and all are skilled in our management approach for acne known as the Acne Institute (https://www.midlandsderm.com/acne-treatment-omaha/).

The procedure can help fade skin darkening called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is good news for those affected. This sometimes occurs with acne.

You cannot use dermaplaning in the beard area of a man. It also can not be done on a woman with hirsutism. Hirsutism is a condition of male pattern facial hair growth.

The Dermaplaning Tool

The surgical blade instrument we use has gone through many refinements over the years. Its current version is a hybrid of both steel and carbon. This gives it maximum versatility with both rigidity and flexibility and is used at a 45-degree angle to easily remove the top layer of dead skin. It can perform this technique in the best way possible.

Dermaplaning Specialists

On the technique itself, it requires a special instrument as well as specialized training. At Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands, we have Registered Nurse skincare specialists. These nurses have experience with dermaplaning and have received special training to maximize their skills. It can also be done by a plastic surgeon, dermatologist or cosmetologist.
