What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning, sometimes known as dermablading, is an exciting skin treatment that removes dead skin cells and fine facial hair. Our esthetician will perform this treatment with a special dermaplaning blade using a careful scraping technique. Dr. Freda Cobbinah is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Essential Med Aesthetics in San Antonio, TX. This is a well-known exfoliation technique that's fast and offers immediate results. Call us today for your next dermaplaning treatment. You can also pair dermaplaning with many of our other aesthetic treatments for even better results.

Who qualifies for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective solution for most skin types and tones. People suffering from severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. Ideal candidates for this treatment:
- Are seeking something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Do not have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Don't have skin that is highly sensitive
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Our Dermaplaning Technique
Dermaplaning treatments are very simple, yet effective. After we clean your skin, we'll begin the treatment by carefully skimming the surface of your face with a blade. Your esthetician will scrape the treatment area many times until the areas have been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will depend upon how much of your face needs treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Cobbinah will further explain the process of dermaplaning to you.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you should expect your face to be red or pink. These are normal side effects that will fade in the coming days. It's common for a small amount of peeling to occur as the skin heals, but it's important not to pull the skin off. You should let the skin heal on its own. You will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure as your face will be very sensitive in the days following your treatment. You can expect to see results soon after, since dermaplaning produces smoother, softer skin instantaneously.
