What is Dermaplaning?
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 dermablade and a careful scraping techniques. Board-certified 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.
"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

"Minor stomach lipo & Fupa lift - overall, I really recommend VIP! - I figured to leave a good review on here. Because the Doctor is cool & does a good job for real. I was skeptic & scared at first due to lack of 'before & after' photos on the site or any videos, but thankfully, he really is good.I'm 5'3, 114 pounds. I had a minimal fat on my stomach that you could see mainly just when I sat down which is natural but I wanted to get rid of it anyway & Pubic area lift because after 10 pounds of Quarantine 2020 weight loss, that FUPA was just not going away. Dr. Khorsandi did a good job. The scar looked pretty scary at first but in 1 month it just turned into a thin pink line that will eventually fade.I read reviews that people complained that he seemed not very carrying, I must disagree, He's very caring. They are just really busy & have to take patients fast. So with FUPA lift... be prepared to have a brutal discomfort for the first 3-4 days. No pain really, just extreme discomfort, weird unpleasant sensations & slow careful walking. It gets better every 7 days I noticed.Anesthesiologist doctor was really cool too. I had panic attacks before the procedure from being afraid but everything went very well. It felt like I slept for 20 minutes when in reality it was about 2-3 hours. Prices at VIP are better than in stupid LA too. California is obnoxious with pricing! Overall, I really recommend VIP! You will not be disappointed."- S. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021
"Best Decision of my Life - I had a rhinoplasty and liposuction on my chin/neck area by Doctor Khorsandi exactly one year ago in July of 2020. I have hated my nose and side profile my ENTIRE life. I would never take pictures of myself looking to the side because I was so embarrassed of it. I finally decided that I needed to do something about it so I came to real self to look at doctors and read reviews. When I came across Doctor Khorsandi I was so impressed with the reviews and before and after photos I booked a consultation. The whole process was so easy and everyone was so nice! Doctor Khorsandi created an image of my nose and how it would turn out and I loved it but the day before my surgery there was something I wanted to change. I was hesitant to call and ask if this was something that I could do because I did not want them to be annoyed that I waited until the last minute, but I did and they were SO understanding. They got me right in and Doctor Khorsandi tweaked the image perfectly and with no complaints that I had been annoying and wanted a change lol. I truly can’t fully express in this review how happy I am with how everything turned out. I get so many compliments on my nose…literally just last night at the bar I was approached by a guy who said “I know this is a really random thing to compliment but you have a beautiful nose” and that was not the first time someone randomly approached me and said that since having my surgery. It’s the best feeling ever!!! Thanks so much to Dr Khorsandi! If you are thinking about getting this done, do not wait any longer!!"- S. / RealSelf / Jul 15, 2021
Do I qualify for dermaplaning?
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 treatment:
- 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.
Following the exfoliation
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.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost of your dermaplaning treatment depends on several factors, including the facility fees, the number of sessions, and if we combine it with other skin care procedures. Our team can develop a strategy that outlines your costs and the goals you hope to achieve during a consultation.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
Dermaplaning is a nonsurgical treatment option that addresses the top layers of your skin. It can hurt if you do not perform the procedure right, which is why we highly recommend letting a professional handle the treatment. Using a fine blade, we gently scrape it over your complexion. During this process, it helps remove damaged skin cells and vellus hair (often called peach fuzz) for brighter-looking and refreshed skin.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No, the vellus hair or the superfine, light-colored hair on your face does not grow back thicker when removed. It will not impact your natural hair production.
