Dermaplaning in Phoenix, AZ

Exfoliation is one of the best ways that you can take care of your skin and reduce the signs of aging. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, recommends dermaplaning as part the skin care regimen used by men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is performed by one of our professional aestheticians. The procedure involves removing the top-most layer of your skin. Doing this triggers the healing response from your body. New, young skin cells are produced, giving your skin a smoother texture, firmer appearance, and more radiant complexion.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dr. Taghizadeh recommends dermaplaning to his patients because he understands the aesthetic value and other benefits, such as:

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Simultaneously removes “peach fuzz” from the face
  • Improves the effectiveness of professional skin cleansers
  • Prevents oil, dirt, and impurities from remaining trapped in the pores
  • Triggers your body to produce younger, healthier skin

What Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?

Unlike microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is performed by hand. After cleaning your skin, our aesthetician uses a surgical scalpel to gently remove an ultra-thin layer of skin. The aesthetician may then spend some time removing the individual blemishes. Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend that you have a chemical peel in conjunction with your dermaplaning treatment.

How Does Dermaplaning Differ From Other Types of Skin Resurfacing?

Dermaplaning is unique because it uses your body’s natural healing process to promote the development of healthy, younger skin. The procedure is slightly different than microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning removes a layer of skin whereas microdermabrasion primarily removes dead skin cells and impurities from the surface of the skin.

Recovery from Dermaplaning

After your dermaplaning treatment, our aesthetician applies skin care products and sunscreen to help with the healing process. In some cases, the skin has a mild redness and slight irritation, but most patients do not experience these symptoms.

What Will Dermaplaning Do for My Skin?

Dermaplaning is an excellent option for treating:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Dull skin
  • Skin that is prone to being oily and/or developing blemishes

Will Everyone Benefit from Dermaplaning?

Only in very rare cases is dermaplaning not considered an effective skin care treatment. Certain medical conditions do place you at risk for developing complications. If you fall into this category, Dr. Taghizadeh will recommend an alternative treatment at our medical spa.

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost in Phoenix?

Dermaplaning is an elective cosmetic procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. After your consultation with Dr. Taghizadeh, our patient coordinator will review your treatment schedule and cost. Payment should be made on the day of your dermaplaning treatment. We accept cash, check, major credit card and financing through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®.
