What is Dermaplaning?
When skin rejuvenation treatments, like facials and microdermabrasion, are not helping you attain the results you want, but you aren't ready to seek lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is an innovative skin treatment and facial treatment that smooths the surface of the skin by removing dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a softer, more youthful look. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is completed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. David Hartman is proud to offer dermaplaning treatments at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dover, OH. Dermaplaning is requested more these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin.

"WHAT TO DO WITH HANGING FAT In 2020, my Bill lost 60 pounds. He was left with a flap of fat drooping over his belt. Exercise had no effect -- the extra skin continued to hang. Bill's forehead lines had grown deep. Looking for the perfect 17th anniversary gift for him, I surprised Bill with a Dr. Hartman consultation. The following week, Dr. Hartman performed a major tummy tuck with beaucoup liposuction on Bill, all done awake. Bill walked out after his tummy tuck procedure: his hanging flap of fat was gone and his abdomen was firm. On that same day, and also while awake, Dr. Hartman lifted Bill's brow, completely obliterating Bill's decades-worth of forehead wrinkles. Dr. Hartman performed these procedures with ease and skill. Despite that Dr. Hartman removed a ginormous chuck of belly fat, Bill had no pain during the surgeries and no pain at home. Bill looks 20 years younger. No one can tell he's had surgery. Friends peer closely at Bill, searching for that which is different about him: new haircut, hipper glasses? I can see them thinking: what is it? Bill looks fabulously youthful but no one can tell why. Dr. Hartman's surgery has greatly increased Bill's self-confidence and body image. Dr. Hartman and his staff made Bill's tummy tuck and brow lift surgery an easy and affordable procedure."- J.M. / Google / Jun 28, 2021
Am i a candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning procedures are considered relatively safe and effective for nearly all skin types and tones. Women and men with severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are searching for an alternative to microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Don't have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Do not have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
how does Dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning procedures are typically completed on an outpatient basis in our office. After the skin is cleaned, the treatment will begin with a gentle skimming of the surface of the face with a facial blade. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the face has been entirely treated. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether part of or the entire face will be addressed. At a consultation beforehand, Dr. Hartman will explain the process of dermaplaning to you.
how long is dermaplaning recovery?
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you can expect your face to be pinkish. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. It is not uncommon for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. But it's important not to scratch — you should let the skin fall off naturally. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure because the face will be very sensitive in the days following your treatment. Patients can expect results quickly as dermaplaning reveals smoother, softer skin right away. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, our team will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
