What is Dermaplaning?

Do you want to give your skin a youthful glow? Removing the top layer of skin cells can reveal fresher, more radiant skin. There are many types of exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, but one of the deeper forms is dermaplaning. With dermaplaning, the cells from the skin’s top layer are scraped away with a scalpel for precise and deep exfoliation. Creative Facial Aesthetics offers dermaplaning as one of our skin rejuvenation treatments at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

The difference between dermaplaning and dermabrasion, chemical peels and other exfoliating methods, is the technique used. With other exfoliation techniques, the top skin layer is stripped away with natural acids, scrubbing or other forms of skin cell removal. Dermaplaning uses a small, sharp blade to “shave” off the skin cells and peach fuzz on the skin. Some of the reasons this procedure is popular are the benefits over other types of exfoliation, including:

  • No harsh chemicals or scrubbing
  • Painless
  • Removes peach fuzz for smoother skin
  • Almost immediate skin radiance
  • Precise treatment for reducing acne scars
  • No down time and non-invasive
  • Better makeup adhesion due to peach fuzz removal

Dermaplaning can usually be performed in less than an hour for deep exfoliating. Although the skin is scraped with a sharp instrument, the treatment is not painful. It feels similar to shaving, with just a pulling sensation across the skin. The treatment can be repeated every month for ongoing deep exfoliation and acne scar removal. Dermaplaning can be a great exfoliation option for those who cannot tolerate chemical peels or other more abrasive types of dead skin removal.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
