Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Also called dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Licensed aesthetician Robin Brock is thrilled to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin safely and efficiently.

Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective skin treatments for nearly all skin types. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Have enlarged pores
- Have fine facial hair
- Have rough skin texture
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments are performed in our Red spa as you relax. Robin Brock will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the face with a dermablade. She will treat the area many times until the areas have been evenly treated.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you should expect little to no downtime. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be very sensitive in the days following the treatment. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals brighter, tighter, and smoother softer skin instantaneously. To help you protect your refreshed skin, Robin Brock will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost for a dermaplaning session will depend on the size of the area you are having treated. Your treatment plan will be created in your consultation.
What's the difference between dermaplaning, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion?
Dermaplaning and dermabrasion are both skin resurfacing treatments that can improve skin blemishes and correct signs of aging. The main difference between dermabrasion and dermaplaning is the tool used. Dermabrasion is performed with a tool that spins a rough material against your skin. Dermaplaning (also called dermablading) is performed with a dermablade, which is a small blade that is used to scrape off the upper layers of skin. Microdermabrasion is a lighter version of dermabrasion that is best to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells for smoother, softer skin.
Is dermaplaning painful?
Typically, most patients do not experience any pain or overwhelming discomfort. After the treatment, our aesthetician, Robin Brock, will go over tips to care for your skin, including an at-home regimen to enhance your results.
