dermaplaning

BEFORE & AFTER

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

An increasingly popular treatment for brides, entertainment personalities, or anyone in front of the camera, dermaplaning is a painless method of exfoliation that uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape away or exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, eliminating the dull dead skin cells, pigmentation, and vellus hair (or “peach fuzz”) to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

REAL PATIENT STORY

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive treatment that is perfect for those struggling with age-related wrinkles and fine lines; hyperpigmentation; acne scarring; poor skin tone and texture; sun damage, and many other complexion flaws.

Dermaplaning is simple and brief, so it’s ideal for those busy Beverly Hills clients who desire no downtime and no discomfort. There are no lasers, no chemicals, no acids, so it’s viable for all skin types and tones. Even women who are pregnant or nursing can benefit from dermaplaning. Similarly, those clients with sensitive skin may also derive aesthetic improvement through dermaplaning.

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

Chemical peels are a highly common and recommended skin treatment—both as a standalone and an “add-on”—which involves the application of a customized chemical solution to the skin, prompting a gradual peel of the treatment area and resulting in new, smoother skin.

The advantage of consulting with a cosmetic dermatologist, such as Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills, is ensuring that your skin type, your history of skin treatments, the overall condition of your skin, and your ultimate aesthetic goals are all taken into consideration when determining the best chemical peel (as well as the ideal strength and combination of ingredients) to meet your unique needs.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?

Conducted by Dr. Jason Emer of Beverly Hills and our highly skilled aestheticians, nurses and physician assistants, dermaplaning treatments allow for greater penetration of skin care products and deeper penetration of lasers and radiofrequency energy devices.

Dermaplaning is ideal in preparation for or as a follow-up to our West Hollywood laser treatments—particularly those that leave the skin with dead cells to exfoliate, such as Clear + Brilliant, Venus Viva, Intensif, and Fractora—as a means of removing dead skin and abnormal pigmentation and exfoliating the skin for new collagen production.

Dermaplaning regularly and prior to energy-based procedures or peels can yield rapid stimulation of collagen production through cell turnover, thus improving fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, pigmentation, and textural issues.

To achieve optimal skin exfoliation and aesthetic improvement, dermaplaning is combined with microneedling, enzyme peels or light chemical peels.

Dermaplaning also aids in creating a flawless canvas for makeup to be applied evenly and flawlessly; for this reason, some of our patients schedule their dermaplaning procedures on a bi-monthly or even weekly basis.

WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is not the best solution for those patients experiencing active acne or psoriasis. In these cases, Dr. Emer will find an even better procedure for you that meets your needs and achieves your personal goals for beautiful, healthy skin.
