What is dermaplasty?

Oct 6, 2008

Exactly what is dermaplasty?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Dermoplasty is the use of skin grafts in plastic surgery.

Dermaplasty generally refers to the use of lasers for skin remodeling and treatment of scars and skin lesions. Sometimes dermaplasty is used to describe a procedure (surgical or less invasive) that alters (improves one hopes) skin appearance.
