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.
"Love my Lips - This was the first time I had anything done so I was nervous. But it was only a positive experience from the moment I walked in the door. The staff were super friendly and professional. I recommend Dr. Khorsandi to anyone. I’ve had my lips filled and absolutely love it!"- M. / RealSelf / Feb 07, 2019

"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
"I went in for a consultation with Dr. Khorsandi because of a botched breast augmentation from Lane Smith. Dr. Khorsandi was extremely welcoming and although there were three people in the room to examine me I felt totally comfortable with him and his team. He examined me and came to the conclusion within five minutes that Lane Smith had put one of my implants in BACKWARDS. I was shocked I had spent seven months in emotional distress for something that could have been fixed way sooner. Anticipating I would be going into surgery again, Dr. Khorsandi asked me to lean forward so he could manipulate the breast that was lower than the other and just disfigured looking. It was about three minutes of a little uncomfortableness but when I saw the result I was almost in tears. He fixed the augmentation that my previous surgeon told me would be thousands to fix because he wasn’t at fault. Not only did Dr.Khorsandi get my augmentation back to symmetrical, he has brought back my confidence and my trust in the field I trust him 100% and 10/10 would recommend."- G.D. / Google / Jan 30, 2019
"I have never been so happy with my results!! I went in just for a consult because I felt like my face was starting to have a lot of wrinkles and my face was hollowing out due to my age. Dr. Khorsandi recommended a PRP facial (also known as vampire facial), some botox and fillers for me. I came in for a PRP facial and was a little nervous about it. Melanie, my esthetician reassured me and made sure to walk me through the whole process. The plasma (antibodies) in my blood were used on my face to help rejuvenate my skin. My face has never felt so soft. I came back 2 days later for some fillers. I felt so overwhelmed because there were so many different fillers. I was unsure what fillers would work best for me. With the expertise of Dr. Khorsandi, he helped me decide what fillers I needed. I got botox, 2 syringes of restylane lyft and 2 syringes of restylane defyne. My face was a little swollen for about 2 days but it was expected. It has been a month since I got my facial and fillers and I DO NOT HAVE ANY REGRETS. I've been getting a ton of compliments. My friends & family can't tell I got any fillers but they can tell I look fuller and good. I also want to say the staff at VIP Plastic Surgery were so friendly! They greeted me as soon as I walked into the door. They offered me water. My wait time was a little long but I would expect to be waiting the whole day at a professional/popular place. I would be concerned if the wait time was an hour or less. (means the place sucks). I also want to thank Catherine, the practice manager for recommending some great skin care products for my face! She really knows what products work best for my skin. I definitely will be coming back in a few weeks for a mommy makeover consult."- T.L. / Google / Jan 25, 2019
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.
