What Is

Aesthetics Performed

Dermaplaining is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that shaves away the top layers of your skin and can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, pitted skin, or unwanted hair. Most patients will have the treatment performed on their face, but anywhere on your body could be treated. While the treatment can make your skin look younger, it won’t stop the aging process.

Demaplaning has been utilized to treat the following skin conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Actinic keratosis (scaly skin patches that can lead to skin cancer)
  • Dull or dry skin
  • Peach fuzz (light, soft hair on your face)
  • Skin damaged by sun exposure
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

What’s the first step?

If you would like to get Dermaplaning in New Hope or Sellersville, PA, the first step is to contact your nearest Pure by Alpha Dermatology location. During this appointment, you will meet with a member of our Aesthetics team who will answer any questions you have, listen to your goals, and assess the treatment area. You will also need to answer some questions about your medical history just to ensure you are a safe candidate for the treatment. Once they have the information they need, a treatment plan will be written up for you. If you agree with the plan, you can have your dermaplaning immediately, or if you would like to reschedule for any reason, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you with that.

What to Expect on the Day of Dermaplaning

Depending on what is discussed during your consultation, the first thing that may happen is you will have a numbing cream applied to your skin about 30 minutes before your procedure. This general anesthetic will help make your treatment more comfortable. Then, the Provider will hold your skin tight and then use a sterile surgical tool to gently scrape the dead skin and hair off.

After you are finished, you will be offered a soothing gel or ointment to reduce redness, swelling, or irritation. The entire treatment can take a few minutes up to an hour and a half, depending on your needs and the targeted surface area.

Dermaplaning Recovery

You will be able to leave immediately after your treatment and go about your day, but keep in mind that your skin will likely be red, swollen, and/or slightly tender. If the pain gets to be too much, you can treat it with over-the-counter pain medication. These side effects should only last a day or two, but if you notice any swelling to last longer than a week or get worse, please contact our office immediately.

During your initial recovery period, you may notice some enlarged pores or small whiteheads, but these should subside with the swelling. You may begin to notice a scab forming over the treated area, but this is completely normal and will fall off on its own – do NOT pick at it. Anytime you are in sunlight, make sure to wear a quality SPF as your skin will be sensitive to UV rays.

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!

The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
