What is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses a surgical tool to scrape the top layers of skin to initiate new skin growth. During treatment, the surgical tool acts as a burr that semi-aggressively wears the top layer of skin, sometimes reaching the dermis. This causes the skin to go through a natural peeling process, promoting new skin growth that is softer, brighter and an improvement from skin imperfections such as fine wrinkles, small acne scars, age spots and blemishes. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers dermabrasion and a number of other nonsurgical skin rejuvenation techniques for Las Vegas, NV patients seeking improvement.
What are the benefits of dermabrasion?
Even minor skin imperfections can make you feel self-conscious and less than confident about your appearance. Dermabrasion offers several benefits for patients who are unhappy with their skin. Patients choose to work with Dr. Khorsandi for the following reasons:
- Safe: Unlike surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, dermabrasion is a relatively safe procedure.
- Effective: Because the process scrapes away damaged layers and promotes healthy new skin growth, dermabrasion offers excellent outcomes.
- Dramatic results: Patients can expect to see significant improvements in the appearance of their skin after treatment.
VIP Plastic Surgery Reviews
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!
I felt so comfortable, I’m completely satisfied with Dr. Chris- he has the magic touch. I highly recommend.. Rhonda Brunett
Got a hairline lower and lateral brow lift! Dr. Khorsandi is amazing! Great bedside manner and listens to what you want to achieve, and then delivers better results than anticipated. I can appreciate his honesty and dedication. All the staff members are friendly, welcoming, and accommodating too!!! Definitely recommend VIP for more intricate surgery needs ☺️
Doctor Khorsandi and his team are unmatched. I immediately booked an appointment with him when I had seen his work in person. I am constantly in front of the camera and I am so thrilled after my procedure to look my best on film. Patricia was also amazing getting everything scheduled smoothly from the start of my surgery to the very end. It was the best decision I’ve made for myself and I will only be seeing Doctor Khorsandi & his team at VIP when it comes to my future cosmetic procedures.
Mel is amazing!! I went in today for my Miradry appointment for my underarms. She explained everything to me very well and I knew what was going on at every moment of the treatment. The treatment itself was painless though I am a bit sore now (but she also warned me that normally happens). We had a nice conversation and I am happy to have met her today. She helped me regain my confidence and I am so excited to finally be able to wear a white T shirt!!

Dermabrasion treatment can go as deep as the dermis depending on the extent of the skin irregularity being treated. During the procedure, the skin is prepared with cryogenic spray, a cooling substance that freezes the skin. This allows the skin to be firm and makes the burring process easier. The skin is then slightly stretched and the rough end of the dermabrasion tool is brushed back and forth until the appropriate amount of scraping has occurred. A healing ointment, such as petroleum jelly, and topical antiseptics may be applied after the procedure followed by bandages for protection.
Following Your Dermabrasion
Due to the slight invasive nature of this procedure, local anesthesia is used. It can last anywhere from 1-2 hours and is generally performed in the office. With deeper dermabrasion treatments, there may be minor bleeding. Patients must expect that the treated area will be red and swollen for about 10-14 days. Peeling will take place and could last up to a full week. The new skin will look pink and gradually fade to a more natural skin color after a few weeks. It is critical that the patient strictly adheres to post-treatment care, including an avoidance of sun exposure, to ensure proper skin healing.

Dermabrasion can cost around $100 for small areas and $3,000 for larger areas. The cost fluctuates depending on the size of the area being treated, as well as the number of sessions it takes to attain the desired results.
Any individual, men or women, with skin irregularities may consider the benefits of dermabrasion. It’s an effective treatment for th ose who have fine wrinkles, acne scars, keloid, hyperpigmentation or any abnormal skin growth.
Who Should Avoid It?
There are some precautions for those who have specific skin conditions, including severe acne or those who are on aggressive acne medications. The doctor will evaluate the patient’s condition before any treatment and inquire about any medical case that may be present, or medications that have been taken within the last year.
How About Freckles?
Freckles are an overproduction of melanin in the skin and common to those who have a fair complexion. It becomes visible due to extreme exposure to sun. Although dermabrasion can remove the top layers of skin where freckles are contained, there are other alternatives specifically for freckle removal such as a chemical peel or laser treatment to minimize the freckles from reoccurring.
Is A Chemical Peel Better?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels both refinish the skin to promote new skin growth. Both can be mildly or aggressively invasive depending on how many layers are involved. The only difference between the two treatments is the method used in achieving the intended results. Dermabrasion uses a surgical tool that gently scrapes the skin while a chemical peel uses solutions, usually acid based, to attain a similar result. Dermabrasion does better in removing small acne scars as there is more control on which tiny spots need more scraping.
