If skin treatments like facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you need, but you want to avoid lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin resurfacing treatments. Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, more radiant complexion. Sometimes known as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh, NC. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin quickly and efficiently.
"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone! I can see clearly now and the world is a much..."- B. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2019
"Dr. Lyle was so considerate of my wishes and concerns during the process of reconstruction after breast cancer surgery.

"Great Experience - I am very happy with my experience with Dr Lyle. I wanted my breast implants out and didn't know what else I should do to look somewhat normal afterwards. He suggested a lift and I asked for a fat transfer, so I had it all done together. He was honest and caring. I like his bedside manner. I always get in early for my appointments. His office staff is nice as was the OR staff during my..."- R. / RealSelf / Jan 26, 2018
"30 Years of Implants; So Glad They Are Out! - I wish I'd never had them and that I had them taken out much sooner than I did. I hope my story assures some of you that you might recover your health and vitality after ex-plantation, and also that you might look fine without any tucks. But here's my story. I'll begin with why I made the decision to get them in the first place.I was 5' 4" tall and weighed around 110-115 lbs from age 20..."- V. / RealSelf / Sep 20, 2017
Dermaplaning is considered relatively safe and effective for most skin types and tones. Patients suffering from severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail beforehand. Those who will benefit most from the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Are suffering from rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments can be performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. While you relax in a comfortable chair, a local anesthesia or numbing cream will be applied to the areas of your skin that are being treated. After the skin is cleaned, the technician will carefully skim the surface of the skin with the surgical blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether you are having a small area treated or your whole face. During your consultation, Dr. Lyle will let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning session, you may find that your face is a bit red and swollen. These are normal side effects and will begin to subside in a matter of days. It is common for scabbing to occur as the skin heals and it is important not to pick at scabs, but let them form and fall off naturally. You should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because your skin will be very sensitive in the weeks after the treatment. Expect to see results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin instantaneously. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, Dr. Lyle will discuss a recommended skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
