If skin treatments like microdermabrasion and facials are no longer giving you the results you want, but you are not ready for lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin resurfacing. Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, healthier look. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is thrilled to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide beautiful, smooth skin safely and efficiently.
"This is my go to spot! Dr. K is a very talented and knowledgeable man and I feel very confident relying on him for my fillers and Botox. I am looking into trying some of their facial and laser services they also offer :-)"- O.R. / Yelp / Nov 29, 2018
"I came in here for a consultation but I ended up leaving with a bag full of skincare! The Zo Skin Health pore refiner has already done wonders on my skin, and it's only been 2 weeks! My pores are clear as ever and my skin is glowing! It stings a tad when you apply it but it works like a charm! They say beauty is pain, right? Thanks Catherine and Dr. Khorsandi!"- S.H. / Yelp / Nov 28, 2018
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"Professional, thorough work from this office, specifically Dr. Lee on my lip fillers! Took a follow up touch up to fix some initial unfavorable results, maybe due to it being my first ever filler, but now they are evenly plump and pouty. Will be back for more cause now I'm addicted ?? Thanks for having a friendly staff and a doctor that wants his patients feeling their best!"- E.M. / Google / Nov 28, 2018

Dermaplaning treatments are a safe and effective skin treatment for nearly all skin tones. Those suffering from severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. The best candidates for a dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Have fine facial hair
- Do not suffer from a skin condition such as rosacea
- Do not have sensitive skin
Dermaplane treatments are performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. While you relax in a comfortable treatment chair, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. After cleaning the skin well, the procedure will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the face with a blade-like scalpel. The technician will scrape the treatment area many times until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether part of or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Khorsandi will help you to understand the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
What to Expect
After your dermaplaning session, you should expect your face to look slightly red and feel sensitive to the touch. These are normal side effects that will subside in the coming hours and days. It is common for tiny scabs to occur on the skin as the skin heals, but it is important not to pull them off. Sun exposure should be avoided since the skin will continue to be sensitive for a few days. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin immediately. To help you protect your refreshed skin, the technician will discuss an improved skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
