Dermaplaning is an exciting cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Also called dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Licensed aesthetician Robin Brock is thrilled to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA. Dermaplaning is very popular these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smooth, beautiful skin safely and efficiently.
"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years. For anyone contemplating surgery dont put it off. For me it was a life changing experience."- S. / Google / Aug 07, 2019

I have never experienced a doctors visit as pleasant and professional as the ones I had with her. She will have my..."- L. / RealSelf / Nov 07, 2018
"Dr. Mizgala and Her Staff Are the Best in the Business! Dr. Mizgala is the best! I had my initial consultation in August 2018, to discuss excess skin removal on my stomach, back and arms after losing around 140 pounds. I had maintained the weight loss for around 15 years, and my work and financial situation finally made skin removal surgery possible. I knew I was looking at major surgery/ surgeries, and I needed to feel confident and trusting of the person I chose to perform such extensive work on me. I have pre-existing high blood pressure, frequent skin infections and a history of severe nausea and vomiting with anesthesia. I needed a surgeon who appreciated the complexity involved with the amount of skin I needed removed, and who would be able to safely get the results I wanted. I consulted with two other surgeons, and both of those appointments were rushed and quite uninformative. Instead of answering my questions, I was referred to a pamphlet or the internet as I was being shown the door. My consultation with Dr. Mizgala was the exact opposite. I was encouraged and comfortable before I went to the office. Patty, the office manager, was so sweet and helpful when I spoke to her to make my appointment. At the consultation, Dr. Mizgala and I discussed several procedures to get the best results for my body type. She took the time to fully explain the pros and cons of each procedure, the downtime and recovery involved, and the results I could realistically expect. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns with respect and dignity. Together Dr. Mizgala and I came up with a plan of action that would provide the best outcome for me. I never felt rushed or like I was in a sales pitch; I was at ease and I just knew I was in good hands. From that very first day, I have felt safe, comfortable and supported by the entire staff. Every visit since then has just reinforced my feeling of gratitude for having found such a wonderful, caring surgeon and her awesome team. Dr. Mizgala and her staff truly care about their patients’ complete recovery. I had a fleur de lis tummy tuck and radiofrequency assisted liposuction on my neck in November, a bra line back lift in March, and an arm lift in April. I only had one minor wave of nausea between all 3 surgeries; I’ve experienced worse with a 15 minute epidural. I had several feet of incision on my torso and arms with the 3 surgeries. Given my long history of skin infections, it was not surprising that I experienced delayed healing in some areas. Dr. Mizgala saw me every single day, including weekends, and she came to my condo to check on me. She was also a strong advocate in helping me get the care I needed to heal with the best results. I felt her concern and I knew she sincerely cared about my recovery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results. Dr. Mizgala and her team have treated me like family throughout this entire process. I never expected this to be such a life-changing experience, inside and out. Dr. Mizgala and her staff’s encouragement helped me to find self-confidence I didn’t even realize I was missing! They all truly care about their patients’ holistic recovery every step of the way. When my life circumstances allowed me the opportunity to have my excess skin removed, this was mostly about the practicality of getting rid of the physical complications caused by the skin while I was still relatively young. I wanted to be able to exercise without having infections and interference from the extra skin, and I wanted to get the extra weight off my back to help my sciatica and hip pain. I got the practical results I was looking for, but the care, support and encouragement of Dr. Mizgala and her staff have given me so much more. I thought this was going to be the last step in my weight loss journey, but it has turned out to be the start of my new life. I’m not afraid to stand up for myself, which is an incredible and priceless surprise. My friends and family see a huge difference in the way I look and carry myself, physically and mentally. I recently turned 45 years old, and I called it my Re-Birth Day. I knew I would have a significant change in my body, but I never dreamed I would have such an incredible mental and emotional transformation so quickly. I have been reborn as a confident, self-assured woman, and I am excited to think about what’s to come in my new life."- L. / RealSelf / May 09, 2019
"Excellent experience - It has been a few years but she was very patient and kind and really cared about me. Her staff was also great. I still recommend people to her even though it’s been overs 5 years. JoAnn Proctor"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 26, 2019
Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective skin treatments for nearly all skin types. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Have enlarged pores
- Have fine facial hair
- Have rough skin texture
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning treatments are performed in our Red spa as you relax. Robin Brock will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the face with a dermablade. She will treat the area many times until the areas have been evenly treated.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning treatment, you should expect little to no downtime. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be very sensitive in the days following the treatment. Patients can expect results quickly since dermaplaning reveals brighter, tighter, and smoother softer skin instantaneously. To help you protect your refreshed skin, Robin Brock will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost for a dermaplaning session will depend on the size of the area you are having treated. Your treatment plan will be created in your consultation.
What's the difference between dermaplaning, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion?
Dermaplaning and dermabrasion are both skin resurfacing treatments that can improve skin blemishes and correct signs of aging. The main difference between dermabrasion and dermaplaning is the tool used. Dermabrasion is performed with a tool that spins a rough material against your skin. Dermaplaning (also called dermablading) is performed with a dermablade, which is a small blade that is used to scrape off the upper layers of skin. Microdermabrasion is a lighter version of dermabrasion that is best to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells for smoother, softer skin.
Is dermaplaning painful?
Typically, most patients do not experience any pain or overwhelming discomfort. After the treatment, our aesthetician, Robin Brock, will go over tips to care for your skin, including an at-home regimen to enhance your results.
