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
"First I love Dr. Adler. I started going to him at the age of 24 (I am 50 and fabulous now) back in the day lol.. then he left the park cities location so for a couple years I did not see him and found out he was at TruDerm and made an appointment ASAP!My experience at this location was fabulous I did not have to wait long everyone who works there is nice and professional and they smile at you (I mean really smile at you) the facility is absolutely beautiful and clean and they have a selection of complementary drinks for the clients (calm down not cocktails lol) . I am glad I found Dr. Adler and I am glad he is at this location. I am happy."- M.P. / Google / Dec 03, 2019
"Great doctor who took my concerns seriously and talked to me like I was a thoughtful adult. Refreshing."- T.T. / Google / Nov 16, 2019
"Earlier today I posted a negative review (not typical of me - I am one who usually stays quiet when frustrated and speak up only when I get great service - look at my Yelp history, 97% 5 stars) after there was some confusion around my appointment. I wanted to update my review, however, because the office manager and my amazing nurse Sally made it right by getting me back in for my treatment and handling me so kindly through it. They were eager and kind to help figure out a solution for me and I am very appreciative of their efforts. Things happen, it's how they are handled that matters. Eden the PA was also so so sweet she did my numbing cream and I will be booking an appointment with her for some medical skin care needs. I got the sublative laser treatment and I can't wait to share before and after photos :) Excited for the results. Thank you all!"- L.P. / Yelp / Nov 15, 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.R. / Google / Nov 09, 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.
