Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, dirt, and oils from the surface of your skin and stimulates new cell development. Dermaplaning is a relaxing treatment that exfoliates safely and gently. Texas Dermatology offers dermaplaning for residents of San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation treatment that exfoliates the skin through the use of a surgical scalpel. Exfoliation should be a part of your routine skin care, as it helps keep the surface bright and prevents clogged and enlarged pores.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
Dermaplaning costs vary based on the extent of the treatment. After your consultation with Dr. Browning or one of our other expert dermatologists, we can let you know how much the treatment will cost. Texas Dermatology does offer financing options through CareCredit® if you would like to make payments on the cost of your dermaplaning treatment and other medical spa services at our practice.

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is considered safe for most skin types. We may recommend other options if you have severe acne or other conditions that may worsen with the treatment. Once that condition is well-managed, you can have dermaplaning to maintain skin health. Dermaplaning is an excellent alternative to chemical peels for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is performed by one of our trained aestheticians. A surgical scalpel is held at an angle against the skin and slowly pulled across the surface. This process removes dead skin, oils, dirt, and other impurities. Patients describe the experience of a dermaplaning treatment to feeling like light sandpaper is being gently applied to the skin.
What is the Recovery Like After Dermaplaning?
No recovery is needed after your dermaplaning treatment. Your skin may be slightly red for a few hours. We may recommend that you avoid certain skin products for the first 24 hours to allow the skin to calm and pores to adjust.
How Often Can I Have Dermaplaning Treatments?
Monthly dermaplaning treatments keep your skin healthy and remove any surface issues before the oils and dirt get trapped inside the pores. We may recommend that you have dermaplaning treatments more or less often depending on any concerns that you have, as well as your age and other factors.
