Exfoliate the Surface Layers of the Skin

DermaPlaning is a non-invasive skin care procedure that exfoliates the surface layers of the skin and reduces the appearance of deep, “pitted” acne scars. The result is a smoother and more even complexion. DermaPlaning is designed to treat the small, but deep scars that sometimes result from cystic acne. Gentler versions of DermaPlaning are sometimes used as exfoliating.

DermaPlaning Procedure In Houston

DermaPlaning is performed with a special handheld instrument called a dermatome. The provider smoothes away the surface layer of the skin using the dermatome. This procedure is highly customizable and can be performed on small areas or on the entire face. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a full hour to complete the procedure, depending on your needs. Sometimes, patients opt to undergo the DermaPlaning procedure in stages.

After the DermaPlaning procedure, the skin may be red and swollen. Tingling and aching can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the doctor or nurse practitioner. Over the next three months, the results will begin to emerge. Since this new skin will be sensitive, it is important to minimize sun exposure during this time.

If you would like more information about DermaPlaning, please call Dr. Schusterman’s office today at 713-794-0368 or contact us online.
