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
"Really great and kind surgeon!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Sep 16, 2018
"Dr. Foley is an Excellent Surgeon - I could not have hoped for a better outcome! Dr. Foley is very precise and highly skilled. My biggest regret is I didn’t come talk to him sooner. My boobs now look like they belong in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition!"- L. / RealSelf / Sep 13, 2018
"I am so grateful to have the good fortune to end up in Dr. Foley's very good hands. I had undergone breast reconstruction with a different plastic surgeon 10 years ago and had a disappointing cosmetic outcome. I disliked feeling vain and insufficiently grateful for the help that I got, and was reluctant to seek another surgeon's help. I am so glad that I did. Dr. Foley is very kind and sensitive and collaborative, and so very skilled and invested in an optimal outcome for his patients."- C.H. / Healthgrades / Aug 21, 2018
"Dr Foley explained to me that if a woman has an unbalanced appearance after breast cancer, she can have surgery to create proper symmetry.I had always been 'abundant.' This was the best opportunity to get reduction surgery as well as re-establish symmetry. Dr Foley is very sensitive and kind...with a touch of gentle humor.I still can't believe that I was vain enough to get this surgery. I'm glad I did. I feel so much better. Now, I'm 'living the dream.'"- E.A. / Healthgrades / Aug 18, 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.
