What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning provides a safe exfoliation treatment using a medical grade blade, that skims off dead skin and "peach fuzz" or any hair, from your face! Leaving your skin smooth, youthful and radiant. It is a great add on to several treatments promoting deeper product penetration and boosting the effects of skin care products. Ask for this treatment the next time you are in the office. Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique we perform at Modern Medical Spa that smooths the surface of the skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is requested more these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Medical director Dr. David Genecov is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments for Dallas, TX and surrounding area men and women. For more information, contact our office today!
"I adore the ladies I’ve met at Modern Med Spa! I called to inquire about tackling numerous skin issues before my daughter’s wedding in the fall. Rachel took the time to really consult with me about my needs over the phone…as I live out of town. On appointment day I was greeted by a smiling Emily who helped me with check in and introduced me to everyone. That day I saw both Katie and Clara for various treatments. Both women were so friendly and knowledgeable. I knew I was in good hands. I love the fact that the entire team worked together to help me develop a timeline so that I can look my best for my daughter’s wedding. They were also great about being sure I received any promotional discounts that were available. I look forward to returning next month!"- S.C. / Google / Mar 25, 2022
"A friend referred me to Clara at Modern Med Spa and going there is the best decision I’ve made skincare-wise in a very long time. Clara consulted with me and put me on a whole skincare regimen that is much simpler and easier than the mix and match inconsistent mess I was doing before. I ended up joining their monthly membership program which has given me a chance to try out some other services. HIGHLY recommend Emily and Katie for hydrofacials. I had one with Emily today and the #11 on my forehead is gone without injectable’s. The ladies who work here are very kind, personable, and knowledgeable. And I am getting long term results that I can actually see since they usually do before and after photos. So glad I found this place and I highly recommend it."- D.P. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"I want give a glowing recommendation and review to both Katie and Rachel! Katie - does an amazing job at facials and everything related, she goes out of her way to ensure you are comfortable and are well informed every step of the way of what she is doing and the products used. I love the fact that she recommends ONLY what is absolutely necessary for your skincare routine. She is the only person I trust with my skin! Rachel - She is someone that understands the word patience and goes above and beyond to not only ensure you are comfortable but are aware are knowledgeable of everything injectable related. She gives a clear course of action of next steps and impacts injectables could cause. I was one of her last appointments and it was getting really late and she did not rush me one bit to clearly explain the process and she ensured I was comfortable at all time...truly someone with delicate hands. Also, Rachel personally called me the following day to check-in, which I've never had anyone call me after an appointment to check-in so this was just one of those little things that makes a huge difference."- S.C. / Google / Apr 26, 2022
"I’ve here a few times now and I’ve grown to love it! Edith is super friendly and high energy which leaves you with a good mood after your facial :)"- A.C. / Google / Apr 06, 2022
"My first experience at Modern Medical Spa was incredible! I highly recommend going to Emily for all of your skincare needs. I received a Hydrafacial from Emily and could not be happier with the results. She answered all of my questions, was great at communicating with me throughout my appointment and effectively explained everything surrounding my treatment in detail. I fully trust her suggestions on what treatments I need to get my skin looking great. The entire staff at Modern Medical Spa was very kind and welcoming. I'm looking forward to coming back soon."- H.W. / Google / Apr 05, 2022
Should I Get Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning procedures are relatively safe and effective for nearly all skin types. Patients with severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail with Dr. Genecov or one of our talented med spa team members beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Do not have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Don't have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have uneven skin tone
What to Expect from Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning treatments are usually performed on an outpatient basis in our Dallas, TX office. After cleaning your skin, the treatment will begin with a careful scraping of the surface of your face with a blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The treatment time will depend upon whether part of or your full face will be addressed. During your consultation, Dr. Genecov will explain the process of dermaplaning to you and what to expect based on your particular treatment plan. In the hours following your dermaplaning session, your skin may be a bit pinkish. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. It's common for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. But it's important not to pull it off — instead, you should allow the skin to fall off naturally. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because their face will be very sensitive in the days following your treatment. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals smoother, softer skin instantaneously. In the interest of protecting your rejuvenated skin, one of our team members will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the highly recommended, daily application of sunscreen.
Is dermaplaning painful?
No, most patients don't experience any discomfort during a dermaplaning procedure. Dermaplaning is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that only treats the top layer of your skin to eliminate old, dead, and damaged skin cells for healthier skin and a refreshed appearance.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The costs for dermaplaning vary depending on your personalized plan, number of sessions, additional procedures, and facility fees. During your consultation at Modern Medical Spa, we will listen to your aesthetic goals and then create a personalized plan to help you reach those goals. When your treatment plan is completed, we can estimate your cost and tell you about any current specials or package discounts.
Is dermaplaning good for the skin?
Dermaplaning is an excellent way to remove damaged, dead skin cells and "peach fuzz" to reveal newer, healthier skin without any downtime that is associated with more invasive procedures like chemical peels. In addition to removing old skin cells, dermaplaning also eliminates trapped dirt and bacteria while promoting the formation of new collagen and elastin.
Will dermaplaning make my hair grow back thicker?
No, it won't. Dermaplaning doesn't interfere with the natural hair growth cycle nor cause hair to grow back thicker.
