Dermaplane Pre & Post Care Instructions


  • Patients with active cold sores or warts, wounded, sunburned, excessively sensitive skin, healing problems, dermatitis or inflammatory Rosacea in the area(s) to be treated should be excluded from the DermaPlane procedure because it could potentially precipitate a flare up or spread the condition
  • Patients with a history of allergies, rashes or other skin reactions may be sensitive to treatment
  • DermaPlane is not recommended if you have taken Accutane within the past year or received chemotherapy or radiation therapy

Pre-Care Instructions (one week before):

  • Avoid the following procedures: electrolysis, waxing, depilatory creams and laser hair removal and sun exposure
  • Cease using any exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating, such as salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid and glycolic acid

Post-treatment Recommendations/Prescriptive Care:
