Dry skin gives your complexion a dull appearance. Dermaplaning is a safe way to remove the most superficial layer of skin to give your complexion a healthy glow. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, performs dermaplaning for men and women in and around the Greater Phoenix area, such as Ahwatukee, Chandler and Gilbert.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dead skin cells and other superficial flaws make your skin look dull. Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the outermost layer of skin and the fine hair to give your complexion a healthy glow. Dr. Leverett recommends dermaplaning for the treatment of:
- Minor acne scars
- Superficial hyperpigmentation
- Dead skin cells
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Benefits of Dermaplaning
- A quick procedure that requires no downtime
- Safe enough to repeat every two weeks
- Excellent for removing vellus hair (peach fuzz on the face)
Good Candidates for Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types. The treatment is a great alternative for patients who are not good candidates for our other treatments, such as chemical peels that are not recommended for women who are pregnant and nursing.
What Can I Expect from My Dermaplaning Treatment?
Dermaplaning is often confused with dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is performed with a special rotating device that removes layers of skin. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is performed manually with a surgical scalpel. The scalpel is brushed across the skin with a very light, gentle pressure. Men and women find the treatment to be very relaxing and comfortable.
After the Dermaplaning Treatment
After the dermaplaning treatment, your skin has a smooth, soft texture and healthy glow. Removing the vellus hair helps prevent acne.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
The cost of your dermaplaning treatment is provided after your consultation. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.
