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.
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

My mother calls him “THE PERFECTIONIST” I have had the opportunity to use his services twice over the years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else."- E.S. / Google / Oct 26, 2019
"I Felt Very Safe in His Care. - Dr Lyle is a great very carrying Doctor I would recommend to anyone needing a plastic surgeon. He is very attentive and never makes you feel rushed through appointments. He treats you as a individual not a number like some do."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 03, 2019
"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. He was the one doctor of all of my medical team who treated me like a person instead of just a number. He truly does his best to make his patients happy with their end result!"- R.H. / Google / Feb 07, 2019
Dermaplaning Ideal Candidates
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 Procedure Technique
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 with Dermaplaning
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.
