What is Dermaplaning?
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. This procedure is an exciting skin and facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and vellus 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 our facility in New Orleans, LA. Dermaplaning is very popular because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin safely and efficiently.

Is Dermaplaning Right for Me?
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
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning procedures are performed by our experienced aestheticians in the comfort of our beautiful new office. After cleansing and prepping the skin, the dermaplaning will begin with a painless, gentle scraping of the surface of the face with a scalpel. 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 Results Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you should expect mild redness. This is a normal reaction that will subside shortly. It's not uncommon for small amounts of flaking to occur as the skin heals. 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 skin care routine with you, including the highly recommended daily application of sunscreen.
