With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

CARE Plastic Surgery is beyond excited to introduce your secret to smoother, brighter skin with the Dermaplaning Facial in Raleigh, NC. Dermaplaning is a highly effective exfoliation treatment designed to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair, revealing smoother, brighter skin underneath. The result? A rejuvenated complexion that feels incredibly smooth and looks more radiant.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a specialized skincare treatment that targets the buildup of dead skin cells and fine hair on the surface of the skin by using a small scalpel to remove it. Our expert skincare professionals promote cell turnover and stimulate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process through this delicate exfoliation.

This treatment enhances the skin’s texture and improves the absorption of skincare products, making them more effective.

Why Would a Patient Want Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is great before a Diamond Glow facial or as a stand-alone treatment, as it removes the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair so the serums from the treatment can penetrate deeper. Makeup application after dermaplaning is much smoother, and products used at home are more effective as they penetrate deeper layers of the skin.

How is Dermaplaning Performed?

At CARE Plastic Surgery, our medical aestheticians begin dermaplaning by thoroughly cleansing the skin to remove makeup, oils, or debris. Then, using a sterile scalpel, they gently glide it across the skin’s surface at a 45-degree angle, effectively removing dead skin cells and fine hair. In the Dermaplaning Facial, we finish by applying premium products tailored to your skin type and goals, followed by SPF, which you can shop at your convenience online.

The process is painless and typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area treated. We recommend dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain optimal results and ensure that your skin remains smooth and free from buildup.

Who is a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Dermaplaning can be tailored to meet your specific skincare need, whether you’re looking to:

·       Improve the texture of your skin

·       Reduce the appearance of fine lines

·       Achieve a smoother complexion

Our skincare professionals at CARE Plastic Surgery will assess your skin type and concerns to determine if dermaplaning is the right treatment for you.

How Long is Dermaplaning Downtime?

One of the many benefits of dermaplaning is that it requires no downtime; you can return to your daily activities immediately following the treatment.

Your skin may appear slightly pink or flushed immediately after, but this typically subsides within a few hours. We recommend using a gentle cleanser and sunscreen post-treatment to protect your newly revealed skin and maintain its health and radiance.
