Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion, but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A sterile surgical blade is used by a trained medical skincare specialist specifically for this purpose. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows for better product penetration, increases absorption of chemical peels while helping to reduce appearance of fine lines and even skintone. Due to the contours of the face, certain areas (such as eyelids and nose) are not treated utilizing this method. Dermaplaning in typically used in conjunction with a mild chemical peel to reveal beautiful, radiant skin. This is an ideal treatment for most skin types, especially rosacea or sensitive skin. To see if you are a candidate please give us a call to schedule your consultation with our aesthetician.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017

"They are most wonderful people I have ever met. Doctor Foley is excellent. If you are looking for a Plastic Surgeon and Cosmetic Doctor look no further. He operated on my husbands leg that had a hole in it. Took a muscle from the back of my husbands leg and pulled it up in the hole and did a skin graph to cover. Thank the the Lord for this man, he is out of this world. A lot of healing time and recovery but otherwise he would have lost part of his leg. Miracle Worker."- L.B. / Google / Jan 12, 2019
"Dr. Foley and the entire staff are excellent. I had a facial melanoma excision process and in addition to being very exact and careful in their surgical procedure, they make you feel at ease at a less than desirable time. Highly recommended!"- B.M. / Google / Jan 03, 2019
"I had a great experience last year when I had a cosmetic procedure, so when I needed to have a skin cancer removed from my lower leg I went to Dr. Foley. He clearly communicated what I'd experience during the surgery and asked throughout the procedure whether I was comfortable. It eliminated the anxiety I had felt about the procedure. He promptly followed up with me on the results of the biopsy. I have complete confidence in his talent and his genuine personal concern for the patient."- S.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 05, 2018
The good news with this noninvasive treatment is that it is pain free! There is no numbing involved. We will clean your face, then gently "shave" the outer layer of your entire facial skin to remove fine facial hair, dead skin cells, and other debris on the skin. Dermaplaning takes about 30 minutes of your day. We recommend having the treatment once a month for radiant skin.
Your skin will feel smoother and more radiant after this procedure. While this is a non-invasive treatment you may experience some redness and should avoid strenuous exercise or perspiration for a minimum of 2-3 days. Individual results will vary. Please contact us to learn more about the Dermplane procedure.
