Dermaplaning Facial in Flower Mound TX

Dermaplaning is a facial modality that involves removing the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, also called peach fuzz, from the face using a surgical scalpel. It is performed to promote smoother, brighter, and clearer skin and is typically done as a spa treatment or by a licensed skincare professional. Dermaplaning is considered safe, but it is important to ensure that the procedure is performed by a qualified Esthetician. In Texas, Dermaplaning is outside the scope of an Esthetician unless they have a Medical Director. However, many Estheticians in Flower Mound, Highland Village, and DFW etc. perform Dermaplaning without any medical supervision!

At mod society facial + mask bar we have a Medical Director (and he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon). While you will probably never see him when you're getting a facial but he oversees our staff training and is available for us to call if there is ever a complication from a Chemical Peel or Dermaplaning.

So what are the benefits of a Dermaplaning Facial?

  1. Exfoliation: Removing the top layer of dead skin cells can help improve skin texture and tone, revealing smoother skin below. And it will instantly brighten your complexion! Not many modalities have the immediate, visible impact that Dermaplaning does.

  2. Improved Product Absorption: Removing the dead skin cells allows topical products, like serums, to penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective.

  3. Decreased Appearance of Acne Scars: The removal of dead skin cells can help reduce the appearance of acne scars.

  4. Reduced Fine Lines & Wrinkles: By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.

As with anything, there are risks for Dermaplaning. You can get nicked or cut. While this most of the time this doesn't happen, it does happen from time to time. If you are talking to the Esthi (your mouth and face is moving) and this can contribute to small nicks. So it's best to just relax during your facial and let your Esthetician do their magic.

One common myth is that Dermaplaning makes facial hair grow back thicker. This is not true and there is no scientific evidence to support it. Perhaps it's just because when your face is baby smooth and after a month the hair starts coming back, people think that it's worse than it was before. Not true. Facial hair, including vellus hair, is determined by genetics and hormones, not by the act of removing it. Vellus hair is naturally fine and does not have a significant impact on the appearance of the skin, and removing it temporarily through dermaplaning does not change the hair's characteristics or alter the way it will grow back. In fact, dermaplaning can actually have the opposite effect and help to make facial hair appear less noticeable by removing any dead skin cells that may be clinging to the hair and making it appear darker or more visible.
