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.

"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.
"My son was in a terrible accident with most of the bones in his face and skull broken... I don't know what I would have done without Dr Chang!! My son is fully recovered and back to his old self again. I love Dr Chang, he will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Thank you!" - Elizabeth A.
"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
