If skin rejuvenation treatments, such as facials and microdermabrasion, are not helping you receive the outcome that you desire, but you are not interested in more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning. This is a skin rejuvenation and facial treatment that smooths the skin by stripping away dead skin cells and the layer of fine vellus facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this treatment is completed with a careful scraping technique by a surgical scalpel. Practitioner Dr. Max Adler is proud to offer dermaplaning treatments at TruDerm in Allen, TX. Dermaplaning is popular these days because it is minimally invasive and able to provide healthy-looking, smoother skin.

"Best experience!! The staff is so kind and professional. Renée was my facialist and did an amazing job making my skin look beautiful. I’m so very comfortable with her because of her professionalism and experience not to mention how nice she is. Kim did my Botox on another day and I couldn’t be happier. She listened to my concerns and addressed them perfectly. So very happy with the knowledge and professionalism that TruDurm offers!"- S.C. / Google / Mar 27, 2018

"Amazing! This dermatology office was so responsive to what I felt like was an urgent matter. It’s sometimes so difficult to hear back from doctor offices or get in for a last minute appointment. However, this office went above and beyond to help treat me. The PA Jenna and her MA were so nice and informative about everything. I would highly recommend this place and so glad I found it!!"- O.F. / Google / Mar 27, 2018

Dermaplaning is is a safe and effective solution for many skin types. Individuals with severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. Ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Are searching for something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Suffer from rosacea
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have uneven skin pigment
Dermaplaning procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, in our office. While you relax in our procedure room, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream will be smoothed over the the skin that will be treated. Next the skin will be cleaned and the technician will begin to carefully scrape the skin's surface with the blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the face has been treated in entirety. The length of time needed will depend upon whether a small portion, or the full face will be treated. At a consultation beforehand, Dr. Adler will explain the process of the dermaplaning procedure to you.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, your face may appear red and slightly swollen. This is a normal reaction and will fade in the coming days. It's not uncommon for some scabbing to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to scratch the face or use ointments to speed the healing process. The face typically only needs a couple of days to feel and look rejuvenated. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as your face will be sensitive in the days and weeks following your procedure. To help you care for your rejuvenated skin, our team will outline an improved skincare regimen with you, this will include a daily application of sunscreen.
