When skin rejuvenation treatments like microdermabrasion and facials are not helping you attain the outcome you desire, but you aren't ready to seek more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning skin resurfacing. Dermaplaning is an exciting skin treatment and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and vellous facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Also called dermablading, this treatment is completed with a careful scraping technique by a surgical scalpel. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at Walters Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin safely and efficiently.

"Dr. Walters was amazing! He was able to listen to all of my concerns and make what I wanted reality. He is passionate about his work and therefore cares about making whatever you’re there for to look perfect! His rapid recovery technique for breast aug works wonders. I was out of the house the next day and only took ibuprofen. Definitely recommend."- R.T. / Google / May 30, 2019
"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective skin treatments for nearly all skin tones. Men and women with severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. Ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Are searching for something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Do not have rosacea
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have uneven skin tone
Dermaplaning procedures are usually completed on an outpatient basis in our office. While you relax in our procedure room, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic will be smoothed over the treatment area. After cleaning the skin well, the dermaplaning will begin with a gentle scraping of the surface of the face with a scalpel. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the face has been entirely treated. The amount of time needed will depend upon whether part of or the full face will be treated. At a consultation beforehand, Dr. Walters will help you to understand the procedure with clarity.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you should expect your face to be swollen and red. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. It's not uncommon for small amounts of peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to pull it off — you should allow the skin to heal on its own. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as the face will be sensitive in the days following the procedure. Patients can expect results soon after, as dermaplaning produces smoother, softer skin instantaneously. To help you protect your refreshed skin, our team will discuss an improved skincare routine with you, including the highly recommended, daily application of sunscreen.
