Double-board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Mario Yco and his team of cosmetic experts are here to help your skin glow as well as your confidence.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive skincare treatment that involves removing the top layer of skin using a handheld instrument called a dermatome. Because the first layer of skin is made up of mostly dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and peach fuzz hair it can contribute to the appearance of uneven texture. When gently and safely removed, a smooth, clean, and fresh layer of skin is revealed.


“He knows my facial features and does a great job every time”

Love Dr. Yco and staff! I always have a great experience when I go to the office! I’ve been to a few different offices to have my Dysport done, and he is definitely the best! He knows my facial features and does a great job every time, and I never need to come back to have a spot treatment. I recommend Dr. Yco and staff 100%!!

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

The ideal candidate for dermaplaning procedures is any individual seeking a gentle alternative to skin exfoliating and resurfacing treatments like microdermabrasion. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure means it requires no downtime, making it a great option for on-the-go candidates looking to see the following improvements regarding their skin concerns:

  • Minimize Pores
  • Brighten Skin
  • Smooth Skin
  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Removal of unwanted hair

If you suffer from a pre-existing skin condition like eczema, psoriasis, or cold sores, you should talk to your healthcare provider before starting treatment so as not to further irritate the skin. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco.

Dermaplaning Procedure

Dermaplaning requires the use of a surgical scalpel, called a dermatome, to gently remove dead skin and hair from the face in a motion similar to shaving. Rather than simply removing hair, your provider will skillfully remove the dead skin and dirt that contribute to textural concerns, by gently gliding the blade across your face. The exfoliating nature of the procedure triggers collagen production that contributes to smoother, fuller, brighter, and more even skin, that will only continue to improve over time.

Post-Op Care

Dermaplaning procedures require no downtime, making them a convenient treatment option for those with busy lifestyles, or for anyone looking for a treatment with fast results. Because the top layer of your skin has been removed, your face may be slightly red and tender immediately following treatment, but this should subside after a day or two. It is also recommended that you stay out of direct sunlight after treatment. For optimal results, treatments should be repeated every 30 days, lining up with the natural cycle of your skin’s regeneration.
