Dermaplaning

In our West Des Moines office, dermaplaning is a favorite procedure among men and women alike who want to reduce signs of aging and damage, or simply want to refresh their complexions. Here, learn more about dermaplaning and why it may be an effective addition to your own skincare routine.

About Dermaplaning

Stronger and more controlled than at-home products, clinical dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that can significantly improve the condition of the skin without irritation or damage. The procedure is comfortable and brief. A sterile surgical blade is used to lightly slough away the outermost layers of skin as well as the vellus hair, or “peach fuzz,” that coats the skin. While dermaplaning is a great option for overall skin improvement, it can also effectively reduce the appearance of the following skin concerns:

  • Rough, dry skin
  • Certain types of hyperpigmentation or brown spots
  • Light signs of aging, such as fine lines
  • Acne scars

I have been so pleased with my results at Koch Facial Plastic Surgery & Spa. At 66 years old, the sun spots were always visible. I have tried many creams and none provided good results. I was referred to Koch by my dermatologist and my initial session included a consultation with options that would work the best for me. I have received three BBL treatments, and my skin is brighter, the sun spots have disappeared and I feel better about myself. No more full covereage makeup that end up caking on my skin! Everyone is so helpful and courteous. I was told what to expect during the procedure and afterwards. The technician called me the day after to make sure to answer any questions or concerns. I am very pleased with the results and will continue to have a yearly treatment every spring.

She has the best advice and tips on how to keep my skin healthy and glowing. I also get Botox from Pam and she is the best too. She has great knowledge when it comes to what I should do or how much I should do to look as natural as possible. I highly recommend Karli and Pam. Amazing people and advice!!!

It's been about 3 years since I had a rhinoseptoplasty here, and I can honestly say it was the best decision I've made. My nose has slimmed down more and more since I had it done, and now it's perfect. I was never confident in how I looked before, but I am now. Thank you, Dr. Cody Koch. The before picture is from when I was way younger, I haven't had any other work done haha.

So I have been to Koch now about half a dozen times. I’ve received services from their med spa - hydrafacials, diamond glow, cool sculpting, bbl, moxie and botox from Dr. Brenton Koch. What I’ve appreciated about this group of people is their willingness to listen and their professional, warm welcoming personalities. They have always done a great job of educating me prior to any procedure and I don’t ever feel rushed. Thank you Koch Med Spa!

Amazing doctors and staff! I saw Dr. Cody Koch for a Rhinoplasty and during the consultations he listened closely to everything I was saying and answered any questions I had. I had seen 2 surgeons prior to coming to Koch Facial Plastic Surgery and felt confident enough to book my surgery the same day as my consultation. Sally was helpful in answering all of my pre op and post op questions, and did so promptly. Dr. Cody has amazing bedside manner and put me at ease before my surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and highly recommend Dr. Cody and Koch Facial Plastic Surgery! I referred a friend who was interested in having a procedure done and received a hand-written note from Dr. Brenton Koch the following day thanking me for my referral. Overall amazing facility, doctors and staff!

I had a rhinoplasty and septoplasty with Cody Koch. It was overall a really great experience. I feel that he set me up with accurate and reasonable expectations for results post-op. Additionally, I am over a year out now from my surgery, and I am still very happy with the results! Not only am I happy with how my nose looks, but it functions much, much, better. The only thing I was not thrilled with is how the payment process was explained. Basically, there was a big miscommunication that resulted in an unexpected charge. The actual surgery and everything was wonderful though, and I would not go anywhere else in the future.

I walked out the doors of Koch Plastic Surgery today and cried tears of happiness. I was born with pointed ears. All through grade school, college and even to this day, I have been called "Spock", have been asked if I can fly, been laughed at, and the list goes on and on. I rarely wore my hair in a ponytail when I was in school, unless it was low and covered my ears. Dr. Brenton Koch had me smiling the biggest smile you could imagine when I left his office today. My ear points are gone and although I can no longer "fly" anymore as so many seemed to think I could because of my ears, I'm on top of the world! His graciousness and the kindness and professionalism of both the doctor and his staff was 10x better than I ever imagined. If you are hesitant at all to choose Dr. Brenton Koch at Koch Facial Plastic Surgery or are considering anyone else, please take this in and look no further. This place just fixed my ears of 41 years! I can't wait to wake up in the morning and see the new me! Thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

A few weeks ago, I had a rather large basal cell carcinoma removed from the left side of my nose. I was told I would need facial reconstruction surgery and I was sent directly to Koch Facial Plastic Surgery and Spa. Dr. Cody Koch saw me right away and made me feel comfortable. He explained in detail my upcoming procedures. Dr. Cody Koch, and his staff, especially Barbara and Sally, and the girls upfront were so accommodating. They were available for phone calls or text messaging if I had any questions. I have been very pleased with their service. I would highly recommend them. They are extremely compassionate and caring.

My family has a history of hooded eyelids; we all look tired and old before our time and visually miss out seeing 30 percent of the world around us. I knew my father, a USAF pilot, had upper lid blepharoplasty at 55 years. A large KOCH wall ad at the Des Moines airport got me thinking - at 62 years maybe it is time. I didn't recognize the tired man in recent photos and looking in the mirror was depressing. Although I live in Missouri - I felt the academic training and clinic work by Dr. Cody Koch prepared him to be a trusted doctor. I would travel to Des Moines, Iowa. At my consult we discussed both upper and lower blepharoplasty. I am glad I did both at the same time. Dr. Cody Koch was very clear about what he could do and if my expectations were achievable. Let me say he far surpassed my highest expectations. Despite the hassles of Covid and his high in demand schedule, I was able to get in by August. I was comfortable throughout the whole process: prep, surgery, after-care to the one month follow-up. Amazing skill, fast, no pain and only amazing results. I was given access to Dr. Cody Koch through his personal cell phone to text questions as needed (responses were back in minutes - wow) . This type of care was unexpected and very reassuring. He was both supportive and clear about the typical issues post surgery into the first month. No surprises. Two weeks post surgery, the only clue I had the top and bottom procedures were the major improvement in my looks. See my face pic above. Upon my first post surgery Facebook profile image update - my international friends (I do a lot of international lectures) asked if this was my younger brother? I replied - good diet, exercise and rest. Let them wonder. My granddaughter says I have big eyes now. Haha. My advice is why wait? You have one of the best plastic surgeons ready to improve you - not change you. Written with great appreciation to the entire KOCH TEAM. Jason

Dr. Brent Koch is so professional and takes time to listen to me. I highly recommend him. I’ve gone to him off & on for years! I wouldn’t want anyone else to do my facial needs. Dr. Brent took care of my nose after some skin cancer years ago & I am 100% satisfied! I have had Botox & I’m going to be getting fillers with him. I’m also going to be doing an S~Lift procedure in the near future and I trust him 100% I’ve had great results with my Botox & I’m looking so forward to fillers. My daughter who is almost 18 will also be seeing him in the future for her concerns. I’ve had a facial here and purchased products I use & the staff is all so friendly & professional.

At 32 years old, I was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma on my nose. I’ve never once been in a tanning bed and it was a huge shock to me. Derm didn’t want to biopsy since it was large and on my “small” nose, so they sent me straight to Dr Cody. He called me on a SUNDAY with my biopsy results! Derm did Mohs surgery and Dr Cody repaired my nose the same day. Despite a more painful experience than I imagined, 3 months later, most people can’t tell I have anything wrong with my nose, and it gets better and less noticeable each week. I cannot say enough GREAT things about him and the entire office. Everyone was nice, courteous, and extremely complimentary through the entire process.

I'd had surgery as a child to correct a severe ptosis that I was born with. Even after that correction, my eyelids were droopy. After decades of living with it, I consulted with Dr. Cody Koch. Another doctor had recommended a more expensive and invasive surgical procedure, but Dr. Koch came right out and said that he thought I'd get "more bang for my buck" with a much cheaper and less invasive blepharoplasty. I was a challenge for him because of the surgery done when I was three years old. But my eyes are beautiful now and for the first time in my life, I'm not self-conscious about my saggy lids. And a huge bonus—I have a wider field of view and my right eye no longer turns out when I'm having a close-range conversation with someone. Dr. Koch, his staff, and the staff at West Lakes Surgical Center were outstanding! I'm so grateful to him!

Dawn, his nurse, is so caring and accommodating. She is incredibly skilled in her role as well. I had a septoplasty which has restored my breathing beautifully so I can sleep well again. The pre-op, surgery and recovery were much smoother than I had thought. Sue G. and Chelsea helped me post-op with some things that came up; I'm grateful for their efforts. Dr. Koch was always accessible, even after hours, if needed. I never had a problem though! Tylenol was enough to cover the pain.

I can't say enough good things about The Spa at West Glen. I moved to Des Moines from Las Vegas, where I spent some time in 4- and 5-star spas inside Strip hotels, and I have never had a massage as good as Andrea at West Glen gave me. After moving and shoveling snow, my back was in dire need of some work, and she left me feeling like a million dollars. I will most definitely go back and sing it's praises to everyone I know!

I have been going to Dr. Brent Koch for almost 3 years now and I could not be more pleased with my results. He has never once doubted me or given up on me. Being only 22 with facial scars from a car accident, he has given me hope that it is getting so much better. He is so compassionate about what he does and makes you feel confident about what he is doing. He is always saying "if this was one of my girls, this is what I would do." Such an awesome guy and is so amazing at what he does. 5/5 any day!

It's been about 4 months since I had my Earlobe reconstruction performed by Dr. Brenton Koch. The procedure was painless. The results are more than I could hope for and the entire staff was accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Very pleased.

So far love Dr. Cody Koch and his staff. Just had a septorhinoplasty done by him yesterday. Loved all of his confidence and knowing that i was in good hands. Can't wait to see my nose and hope to be able to breathe better once I'm recovered. Thank you all!

I had surgery with Dr. Koch after I broke and dislocated my nose. I had already had a septo/rhinoplasty with an ENT previously, which didn't help at all (recurrent sinusitis, difficulty breathing). After my nose surgery with Dr. Koch, my nose not only looks better than it did before my accident, I can breathe much better, and don't have recurrent sinus infection. Dr. Koch was very nice, his staff was amazing, and even though I hurt afterwards (of course!), he made the experience much much better than my previous nose surgery. I am very happy with it.

Dr. Koch is available all hours of day and evening. Very friendly and professional staff whose mission appears to be to make you comfortable and meet your medical needs. I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes and they were very flexible in making appointments with him and other doctors. Best medical office I have ever been in.

Dermaplaning Procedures

Each dermaplane treatment lasts between 30 and 40 minutes. Your provider begins by cleaning the treatment area. He or she then uses a sterile blade to gently exfoliate your skin. No anesthetic is required since the treatment affects only the outermost layers of your skin. At the end of the procedure, your provider gently wipes away the sloughed off skin cells and “peach fuzz”, revealing a fresh, vibrant skin surface.

Recovery

Because dermaplaning is noninvasive, it has a low risk of associated complications. In fact, it’s one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. Some patients report skin redness or dryness after treatment, but this is temporary. Very rarely, the skin can be nicked during a procedure. This typically heals almost on the spot. (Remember, most men use a blade on their faces almost every day and nick themselves without any long-term effects.) After your treatment, we recommend using moisturizers and sunscreens liberally, in addition to avoiding unprotected sun exposure for a few days.

There is no downtime for this “lunch hour” procedure, and most people return to their regular activities immediately.

Your Consultation

A comprehensive consultation is your first step in improving your skin and looking your best. During this appointment, you and Dr. Brent Koch or Dr. Cody Koch explore all of the possible options for improving your skin in the event that dermaplaning isn’t quite right for you. In addition to discussing your skincare goals, you’ll also review your medical history and current and past skincare regimens to ensure the procedure is safe for you.

Common Questions

Will the hair on my face grow back darker and thicker after a dermaplane?

No. Although this is a common myth, the hair on your face is not the same as the hair on your legs or bikini area. It will not be affected or changed by dermaplaning in any way.

What should I NOT expect from my dermaplane treatment?

Regular dermaplane treatments can improve or eliminate superficial skin problems. It works on all skin types and colors to produce subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. However, it is not effective for problems such as stretch marks, keloids, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. Laser treatments and medical grade chemical peels remain the best options for these conditions.

Can I combine dermaplaning with other treatments?

Yes! Not only can you combine a dermaplane procedure with chemical peels or laser treatments, we encourage it. By removing the outermost layer of the epidermis, a dermaplane treatment allows whatever rejuvenating treatment that follows to have a deeper, more lasting effect.
