If skin treatments, like microdermabrasion and facials, are not helping you attain the restorative skin results you desire, but you aren't interested in more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a popular skin and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful look. Also called dermablading, this procedure is completed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Medical director Dr. Laura Dipuma is pleased to offer dermaplaning treatments at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center in Jackson and Dyersburg, TN. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin. Learn more about this procedure and how it may be beneficial for you by contacting our facility to schedule an initial consultation.

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective solutions for most skin types. However, women and men suffering from severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. Ideal candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are searching for an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Do not have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Do not have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments can be completed on an outpatient basis in our Jackson and Dyersburg facilities. After cleaning the skin, the treatment will begin with a gentle scraping of the skin's surface with a blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the face has been evenly treated. The treatment time will depend upon whether a section or the whole face will be addressed. During your consultation, Dr. Dipuma will explain the process of dermaplaning to you.
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, your skin may appear slightly red. This is a normal reaction that will begin to subside in a matter of days. It's not uncommon for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to scratch — you should let the skin fall off on its own. Patients should avoid prolonged sun exposure as the skin will be very sensitive in the days following your procedure. Patients can expect results soon after as dermaplaning reveals smoother, softer skin right away. To help protect your newly revealed skin, the technician will outline an improved skin care regimen for you, including the highly recommended daily application of sunscreen.
