Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion, but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A sterile surgical blade is used by a trained medical skincare specialist specifically for this purpose. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows for better product penetration, increases absorption of chemical peels while helping to reduce appearance of fine lines and even skintone. Due to the contours of the face, certain areas (such as eyelids and nose) are not treated utilizing this method. Dermaplaning in typically used in conjunction with a mild chemical peel to reveal beautiful, radiant skin. This is an ideal treatment for most skin types, especially rosacea or sensitive skin. To see if you are a candidate please give us a call to schedule your consultation with our aesthetician.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I recently had reconstructive surgery (for the 2nd time) following treatment for breast cancer. Dr. Foley did an absolutely amazing job! I am beyond thrilled with the outcome, he did exactly everything he said he was going to do. My 1st surgery (performed by another doctor) resulted in deformities, constant discomfort and I was very unhappy. I would definitely refer Dr. Foley for any type of breast surgery (I had an implant and a breast reduction) I'm really impressed, he did an excellent job!"- H. / Healthgrades / Mar 11, 2017
"Dr. Foley and his crew are the best. They all genuinely care and want the best for each of their patients. Any breast cancer reconstruction patient will tell you that it's a long road back to feeling good in your own skin again. However, it IS possible, and Dr. Foley, with his gentle and kind nature, will be with you every step of the way. Thank you.....for everything!"- A.B. / Facebook / Mar 03, 2017
"Excellent surgical care - Outstanding surgical care. Dr. Theodore T. Foley removed a possible cancer from my back. The procedure was painless and I have virtually no scar. It was able to be done at the office and was very quick. Both the surgical care and the office environment were excellent."- C. / RealSelf / Mar 02, 2017

The good news with this noninvasive treatment is that it is pain free! There is no numbing involved. We will clean your face, then gently "shave" the outer layer of your entire facial skin to remove fine facial hair, dead skin cells, and other debris on the skin. Dermaplaning takes about 30 minutes of your day. We recommend having the treatment once a month for radiant skin.
Your skin will feel smoother and more radiant after this procedure. While this is a non-invasive treatment you may experience some redness and should avoid strenuous exercise or perspiration for a minimum of 2-3 days. Individual results will vary. Please contact us to learn more about the Dermplane procedure.
