The accumulation of dead skin cells, debris, makeup residue, and other substances clogs our skin pores and gives us a dull and tired appearance. Most over-the-counter cleansers aren’t capable of exfoliating all the dead skin cells and residue on our skin. However, dermaplaning is a strong exfoliation technique that removes the uppermost layer of the skin without chemicals.

Dr. Christopher C. Chang’s medical center in Washington DC provides the latest skin rejuvenation and skin care techniques, including dermaplaning. Our cosmetic providers carefully remove the dead skin cells and unwanted hair from your face to brighten your complexion immediately. Please schedule an appointment with one of the best providers of dermaplaning in Washington DC & Maryland today.


What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning, also known as microplaning and blading, is a skin rejuvenation technique wherein an exfoliating blade is used to gently remove the dead skin cells and hair from your face. The procedure removes the dead skin cells, uneven pockmarks, and “peach fuzz” on your face to give you a bright and smooth complexion. It also reduces acne scars, sunspots, fine lines, and other textural irregularities.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

  • Nonsurgical and non-invasive treatment
  • Performed as a quick in-office treatment
  • No need for anesthesia or sedation
  • No pain or discomfort
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • No chemicals
  • Removes years of accumulated dead skin cells
  • Removes the peach fuzz
  • Minimizes enlarged pores
  • Improves overall skin complexion and smoothness

Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for everyone, regardless of skin type, skin color, or skin concern, as long as you don’t have active skin infections. Since the procedure doesn’t include chemicals, it’s also suitable if you’re pregnant or nursing. In fact, dermaplaning is one of the few skin rejuvenation techniques suitable for those who are pregnant and nursing.

How is a dermaplaning procedure performed?

The dermaplaning procedure is simple and convenient. Your cosmetic provider will use a razor-like tool for the procedure. They’ll drag the dermaplaning tool across your skin at a 45-degree angle to remove all the dead skin cells and peach fuzz without harming your skin tissues. You might feel a slight tingling sensation, but the procedure is painless. The entire treatment lasts for 20 to 30 minutes, following which the provider will apply a soothing gel over your face.

What’s the recovery from dermaplaning like?

Dermaplaning is an extremely simple, painless, and comfortable procedure with no post-treatment side effects or complications. You might experience mild redness and feel like your skin has been scraped for a day or two, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately.

Your skin will look immediately brighter, but you’ll appreciate the full results once the redness subsides in a day or two. The results last for 3 to 4 weeks, following which it’s advisable to repeat the procedure. You can repeat the procedure as much as you want to maintain the results.

If you’re interested in this risk-free, non-invasive, and safe skin rejuvenation technique, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Chang today.
