Those seeking smooth, soft skin are in luck. Dr. Doppelt is pleased to offer his Knoxville patients a procedure called dermaplaning, a painless in-office treatment that promises quick results. Dermaplaning removes layers of dead skin cells & peach fuzz revealing a brighter complexion, smoother texture & dewy skin while reducing the appearance of acne scars and fine lines. Skincare products will penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin and be more effective.
The secret behind dermaplane is its simplicity. Dermaplaning is a process in which Dr. Doppelt or a medically trained aesthetician uses a special blade to dry shave your face. Dermaplaning removes more than just fine facial hair – the blade also helps remove dead skin cells, giving your face a smooth glow and reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and evening the skin’s texture.
Dermaplane comes with a host of benefits, including:
- Better penetration of facial treatments
- Smoother makeup application
- Minimizes acne scaring
- Removal of fine vellus facial hair that traps dirt and oil in your skin
- Reduces fine lines
- Provides immediate results with no downtime or recovery
During a dermplaning procedure, Dr. Doppelt or a member of his Knoxville staff use a small scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin and hair. The process removes bumpy texture and unevenness from the face and removes any fine facial hair. Dermaplaning isn’t a new medical breakthrough – the process dates all the way back to the ancient world. Cleopatra is said to have relied on a procedure like dermaplaning to maintain her visage, as were more modern beauties like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.
Even though you might find dermaplaning treatments on the list of services offered at the salon or spa, Dr. Doppelt strongly advises his patients to seek treatment from a doctor or medically-supervised esthetician. Dr. Doppelt and his staff treat dermaplaning scalpels just as they do other surgical equipment, which is essential for safety. Additionally, having a board-certified physician and trained medical professionals on hand can help ease any patient concerns.
