Dr. Bruce Hermann and medical esthetician Lisa Rux offer dermaplaning at our Denton, TX, clinic. Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive treatment for removing dead skin cells while eliminating fine facial hair and treating blemishes. Downtime and discomfort are minimal, and the treatment can often be completed in under an hour, making it a fit for most busy schedules.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Patients are often surprised to learn that dermaplaning can deliver immediate results. The treatment addresses a wide number of cosmetic blemishes by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin and exposing healthier skin cells below. Patients who undergo dermaplaning often notice:
- Smoother skin
- An absence of facial fuzz
- More uniform makeup application
- Easier application of skin care products
- Reduced pore size
- Reduced prominence of acne scars
- Improved skin tone
- Enhanced self-confidence
An added benefit of this procedure is that it will not cause your facial hairs to grow back thicker or more quickly.

Am I a Candidate?

- Fine lines
- Excess fine hair
- Clogged pores
- Large pores
- Small skin blotches
How the Procedure Works
To prepare for your procedure, a member of our team will help you lie down on our treatment tables, ensuring that you are completely comfortable. A special cleanser will be used to prepare your skin for treatment. Then, as a section of your skin is held taught, a special sterilized dermaplaning blade will be gently glided across the treatment area to remove dead skin cells, facial hair, and clogged pores. The treatment can usually be completed in around half an hour.
Following your treatment, you will free to return to work or normal routines. Some patients report minor skin irritation in the days following treatment. A quality moisturizer can usually provide adequate relief in these situations. We can help recommend an effective moisturizer to use during this time.
