Can you tell me about the difference between dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, and dermabrasion?

Depth!: Dermaplaning: scraping the skin with a scalpel blade held perpendicular to the skin so as to remove dead layers only. Microdermabrasion: a rotating burr or abrasive crystals blown against the skin removes the dead layers and a tiny amount of live skin to help with fine wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and adult acne. Dermabrasion: more invasive / removes part of the live skin for acne scars / creases ...Read more

What are the pro's and con's of dermaplaning?  who should not get it? Dermatologists only please. 

What are the pro's and con's of dermaplaning?  who should not get it? Dermatologists only please. 

No obvious advantage: Dermaplaning is a proprietary name for using a surgical blade to scrape the outermost layers of the epidermis, supposedly to exfoliate the skin and regenerate new skin cells. Frankly, I see no advantage to this procedure over time-tested exfoliating techniques such as microdermabrasion and superficial chemical peel - and you have the added risk of nicks & cuts. ...Read more

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Yes, no, yes, maybe: Dermaplaning over active acne is not a good idea; it increases the risk of infection & scarring. Hair grows back normally, since dermaplaning is basically a very close shave. Blackheads are plugged oil glands, and the most basic lesion of acne, but blackheads by themselves are not acne per se. Dermaplaning will probably not make blackheads worse, but it is not a treatment for blackheads either. ...Read more

I took biotin 10, 000but it increase acnes in my face. So how can I reduce them? I've read some reviews of people taking it of that side effect of acnes

Manage your acne: This is famous for making acne flare. I'm wondering why you're taking the biotin -- trying to change your hair? Maybe you'll get a good result, but you'll want to do something about your acne. Topical benzoyl peroxide isn't pleasant but I bet it will help. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it ok to use bio oil on the face while on absorica (accutane)? I've read good reviews about it online and how it helped people's scarring.

Myth but use if help: Many of my patients swear by the benefits of olive or bio-oil and so I generally don't dissuade them but there is very little science to support its use. It is probably the massage, (which we know helps scars) that is used to apply the oil, which is actually providing the improvements observed. Massage with any clean oil 3-4 times a day. Silicon gel strips are morel likely to improve the scar. ...Read more
