What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an innovative facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths your skin by removing dead skin cells and thin facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Sometimes called dermablading, this treatment is performed with a careful scraping technique with a facial blade. Dermaplaning is requested more these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smoother and younger-looking skin.

"In August of 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer which required a mastectomy to remove a very large tumor which in my case had not yet turned invasive. Although I was blessed on the cancer not spreading the size of a 11cm tumor removal would leave my chest highly disfigured especially because the nipple needed to be removed. Brenda Morthy my oncologist surgeon who in her own right is the best there is only wanted me to visit with one breast reconstruction surgeon - Dr. Walsh. Dr. Walsh was able to make something out of my left over breast no one thought possible. To this day what I find shocking is how humble she is and the fact she isn’t out there advertising her services just for money, but yet anyone you talk to in the world of cancer or complicated reconstruction cases to a one will tell you, "Dr. Walsh is the very best, there is no better". I believe someone was watching over me in all the doctors I met in my journey with the most talented being Dr. Molly Walsh."- S.R. / Yelp / Aug 09, 2022
"Great experience with Dr. Sabeeh. He is very personable, listened to my concerns and gave his best advice/opinion. Office staff are friendly and helpful."- M.C. / Google / Jun 28, 2022
"These guys are amazing! This was my first experience with plastic surgery and I could not be happier. Dr. Yao did my upper eyelids (upper bilateral blepharoplasty) and it really changed the way I look. My eyelids were pretty close to touching my upper lashes prior to surgery. As you can see after surgery my eyes look "open" again. Every person in the office is so caring and professional. It feels like they really are a family. From the consult through the entire process, they really make you feel special."- J.L. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2021
"I had a phenomenal experience with the doctor. True expert in his craft."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 16, 2021
"Dr. Molly Walsh is the best plastic surgeon in AZ. She’s professional, personable and has impeccable bedside manner. She’s a very experienced and accomplished surgeon and her work speaks for itself. She’s a miracle worker, perfectionist, very thorough and one of the nicest most humble surgeons I’ve ever met. She did an impeccable and impressive job. I would rate her 10 stars ?? if it were possible. Highly recommended!! "- R.L. / Healthgrades / Jan 23, 2021
What Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning procedures are performed in our Scottsdale, AZ office as an outpatient procedure. After your skin is cleaned, the treatment will begin with a gentle skimming of the surface of the skin with a special blade. We will skim the skin repeatedly until the treatment areas have been entirely treated. The amount of time needed for your appointment will depend upon the area being addressed, but it usually takes somewhere around 30 minutes. After your dermaplaning session, skin can be a little pink. This is normal and will fade in the coming days. It's common for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to scratch your skin as this could cause scarring. As usual, we always recommend avoiding prolonged sun exposure. Our team will discuss a skincare routine with you to help maintain and enhance your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliating treatment. Patients should not experience any pain or discomfort. The treatment removes the very top layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz on the face.
Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you have an excess amount of "peach fuzz" or have tired-looking skin, this is a great treatment option as it is simple, affordable, noninvasive, and requires virtually no downtime. Dermaplaning removes old damaged skin and thin hair on the face for a gorgeous profile. This process also helps to remove trapped dirt and bacteria, in addition to promoting collagen and elastin fibers for a glowing complexion.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. Contrary to the popular myth that hair will grow back thicker when shaved, dermaplaning does not interfere in the natural hair production process.
How often should I get dermaplaning?
We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. We can help you determine when it's best for you to return for follow-up treatments.
