If your over-the-counter skin treatments are no longer giving you the results you desire, but you aren't interested in more invasive procedures, it may be time to consider dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an innovative cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smooths the surface of the skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a careful scraping technique and a facial blade. Our aesthetic team is proud to offer dermaplaning as a standalone procedure or as an add-on to another facial treatment at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute in Lansdale, PA and Fort Washington, PA. Dermaplaning is very well-known these days because while it is noninvasive, it helps patients to attain beautiful, smooth skin.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Wonderful experience, and I had skin cancer removed. From top to bottom, everyone I dealt with was professional and friendly. Exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful with clear and direct communication. Dr. Saxena is an amazing doc - I chose this office specifically because they had removed a spot for me about three years ago and I’m happy to say the experience was even better this time. A quick note on their COVID-19 procedure. Suffice it to say I am just as happy with the procedure they have in place. I felt safe the whole time. Very professional and comfortable."- M.S. / Google / Nov 03, 2020
"Dr. Kasper is a great physician. He takes the time to truly get to know his patients. He does a great job teaching his patients and answering their questions. The staff is very helpful as well. I highly recommend this clinic!"- S.M. / Google / Nov 02, 2020

"I’ve been going to the Lansdale location for years for my annual skin check. This was postponed during COVID, but the staff set up a telemedicine visit for a new issue before I could get there in person. They made this simple! My annual check was done by a mew PA with them (but not new to derm), Charlie, and he took the time and was patient in answering all of my questions during the exam. Also can’t say enough for their COVID preparedness - no one had to touch my ID & insurance card, they had q-tips to use and dispose of for use of the tablets and sample bags pre-made since the sample jars are gone to keep everyone safe."- J.B. / Google / Oct 27, 2020
Dermablading and dermaplaning are safe skin treatments for most skin tones and types. Men and women suffering from severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail with their skin care technician beforehand. The best candidates for dermaplaning:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Do not have rosacea
- Have a moderate amount of fine facial hair
- Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have uneven skin tone
Dermaplaning procedures are typically completed in our office as an outpatient procedure and are often combined during a facial or another skin care treatment. After cleaning the skin, the treatment will begin with a careful scraping of the surface of the skin with a blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether part of or the entire face is being addressed. During your consultation, a technician will explain the process to you.
What to Expect
After your dermaplaning session, your skin may appear a bit pink. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure because the skin will be very sensitive in the days following your treatment. You can expect immediate results after the treatment as dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin tight away. Your skin will be radiant and soft, which makes dermaplaning a great procedure to seek out right before a formal event or a night out. To help you care for your skin, our team will discuss a recommended skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
