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. Dermaplaning is popular these days because it is minimally invasive and able to provide healthy-looking, smoother skin.
"Dr.Adler is an exceptional dermatologist. I have visited several doctors for my moderate adult acne and kept getting pushed to use Accutane, which I was uncomfortable with; it was refreshing when Dr.Adler offered safer and more long term solutions that fit my needs. I am grateful that he didn’t try to hard sell anything and even recommended that I stay away from excessive products or treatments, but rather simplify my routine with a “less is more” approach. He always has a smile and great attitude during our visits. I would recommend him just based upon his bedside manner and the TruDerm environment alone, but his knowledge and expertise far exceeds the other Plano area dermatologists I have seen, so it is easy to tell everyone I know about him."- L.F. / Google / May 31, 2019
"My overall experience at this location (Legacy West) was amazing! The staff were very kind and patient. I’ve started using the products that were prescribed and I’m already seeing results! ❤️"- N.N. / Google / Nov 07, 2019
"I had a smallish cyst removed by Dr. Adler and couldn't be happier with the results. Having watched tons of Dr. Pimple Popper (lol) I was concerned with not fully removing the cyst and it coming back. Dr. Adler happily told me he was able to remove it all and applied the smallest fine-lined suture-line that healed completely flat and not noticeable to someone who wouldn't know what they were looking at. Super happy with the results since the area was such a sensitive spot for me. Plus Dr. Adler has terrific bedside manner and took great care in numbing me completely. I've also gone many times for laser hair removal. Everyone always has such a great attitude in there and treat you with respect and kindness. Highly recommend!"- A.O. / Yelp / Nov 05, 2019

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
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
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, the aesthetician will explain the process of the dermaplaning procedure to you.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, your face may appear red. This is a normal reaction and will fade. 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.
