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.
"Dr. Khorsandi did an amazing job!! I had a consultation prior to going to Dr. K and I felt so unsure still by the end of the consultation of which size to go and which would fit my body better. Dr. K was so thorough and patient with answering all my questions as well as being thorough with going through each size. I am so in love with how my breast augmentation went and how they're looking! Completely trusted his opinion on what size I should go and what fits my body, but also keeping what I wanted in mind. I'm so glad I went with his recommendation! I had girlfriends trying to sway my decision and I'm so glad I didn't listen to them. Thank you thank you! They are perfect."- I.V. / Yelp / Aug 03, 2018
"MIGRAINE REVIEW: 6 months ago I started going to Dr. Khorsandi for my migraines. I was very skeptical at first (never receiving any type of botox of injections), but after our first consultation, I felt very comfortable with Dr. K and all of his staff! Dr. K is VERY knowledgeable and gave me a full rundown of where the injections would go and possible prognosis. Prior to my meeting with Dr. K, I had migraines for 11 years having tried EVERY treatment available (medications, chiropractors, ibuprofen, tylenol, etc. etc.). I talked with my primary physician and she told me that botox would not work, but I was tired of not getting results so I decided to give it a go. 2 days after my first consultation and set of injections, I felt IMMEDIATE relief!!! My migraines were gone and if I did end up with a tiny headache a 200mg ibuprofen would do the trick. I will continue to see Dr. K for injections as needed and I recommend him to EVERYONE I know who has migraine issues. My only regret is not seeing Dr. K and his staff sooner! He is a lifesaver and all of the girls in his office are awesome and go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. I cannot thank them enough!"- H.B. / Yelp / Jul 27, 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
"Being from Illinois I was a little reluctant on Plastic Surgery Doctors here in Nevada. Didn’t know who to Choose. Well I hit the Jackpot. Dr. Khorsandi takes his time and you never feel like your Just a number. He gives you options when asking what he would do if he was the patient. I will be 60 and have told him I want to look natural for my age. As far as I am concerned He is the best. I’d never go to anyone else."- S.P. / Google / Jul 26, 2018

My results are better than i imagined, he is worth the money!"- L.C. / Google / Jul 21, 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.
