Dermaplaning Treatments

View Gallery


Time and life experience can lead to unflattering or distracting signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, scars from injuries, and other skin irregularities can detract from your natural beauty, but Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery in Charlotte, NC offers non-surgical options to smooth and refresh the skin.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a superficial procedure used to exfoliate the skin and revitalize your appearance. A precise blade is used to remove a small layer of skin and tiny hairs also known as “peach fuzz.” The procedure is quick and precise when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, and the results are apparent almost immediately.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

The non-surgical nature of dermaplaning makes it a safe and effective alternative to injectable fillers, chemical peels, or other procedures. Benefits can also include:

  • Evens complexion and brighter skin
  • Removes fine hair
  • Inspires the body’s regenerative process to produce new skin cells
  • Can be paired with other vitamin-rich serums or ointments to enhance your results

Almost anyone who wants to improve the look and feel of their skin can undergo a dermaplaning procedure. The non-invasive treatment is simple and doesn’t require any downtime, so it is easy to fit into your schedule and you can resume your daily activities right away.

Dermaplaning Procedure

The procedure itself is performed with a small needle in the comfort of our Charlotte, NC clinic. The needle gently scrapes away the top layer of skin to promote the growth of new cells. The regeneration process revitalizes the skin and the body’s collagen and elastin work to fill in wrinkles and scars. The procedure is gentle, and you will likely not have any visible redness or discomfort by the time you leave our office.

Recovery and Care After Dermaplaning

Because dermaplaning is quick and easy, the recovery period usually requires little to no downtime. Any symptoms are typically mild and can be easily managed with pain medication. Our surgeons will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best results. You should avoid extended periods of sun exposure, but otherwise you are welcome to resume your daily routine. Your results will be apparent right away, and will only improve as the skin continues to heal. Your skin will appear smoother and more youthful as new skin cells are generated.

Should I try dermaplaning at home?

As with any cosmetic procedure, dermaplaning should only performed by a trained professional. Although it is non-invasive, there are still risks involved that Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery goes to great lengths to alleviate. Our facility is a sterile and safe environment for skin treatments, and you can expect high-quality results when you trust your skin to our professional and courteous surgeons.
