If skin treatments like facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you want, but you are not interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin resurfacing treatments. Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide younger-looking, smoother skin quickly and efficiently.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019

"Excellent plastic surgeon! Dr. Lee did my augmentation 18 years ago. I was so pleased with the results that I traveled from Boca (where there are tons of plastic surgeons) to Port St. Lucie to have them redone. I’m almost 2 weeks out of surgery and am thrilled with my results! Everyone in the office is super nice and helpful! I highly recommended him!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 12, 2019
"I have to say this is by far the best doctors office I have been too. I went to a different surgeon before Dr. Lee who made me wait three hours after my appointment time and spent very little time with me in general. Every appointment I have had with Dr. Lee has been right on time, especially after the surgery when they did not make me wait in the waiting room at all. His office staff is beyond friendly, helpful, and extremely efficient. My boyfriend and mother who have attended a few visits with me even commented on them without me saying anything first. What is more is when I first spoke to Dr. Lee at our first appointment, I knew I wouldn't want anyone else doing the surgery. He was very informative and answered all my many questions without making me feel like he needed to rush me out of there. This goes for every appointment I have had after with him as well. And finally, I have completed my surgery with Dr. Lee and I honestly cannot express enough how happy I am with my results!!"- J. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
"I recently had dermal filler injections administered by Dr Lee, himself, and am extremely thrilled with the outcome! He took ample time beforehand to discuss with me my expectations and desired results. Dr. Lee is a perfectionist, extremely experienced and knowledgeable, which ensures safe and successful results. I might add that his nurses and office staff are also wonderful, which created an overall extremely positive experience. If you are considering any kind of facial enhancement, Dr. Lee is the person to go to - you won’t be disappointed. He’s an artist."- J.T. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
Dermaplaning is considered relatively safe and effective for most skin types and tones. Individuals suffering from severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Have fine facial hair
- Have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments can be performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. After the skin is cleansed, the procedure will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the skin with a surgical blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether a portion or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, you may find that your face is flushed. This is a normal side effect that will begin to subside in a matter of a couple of hours. You should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because your skin will be very sensitive in the weeks after the treatment. Expect to see results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin right away. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, the technician will discuss a recommended skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
