WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a technique that is often incorporated into facial treatments at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. This method involves utilizing a special instrument to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, removing dead cells and fine vellus hairs (also known as peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is a safe and effective noninvasive service that can smooth the texture of your skin, as well as brighten your complexion for a radiant, clear glow. It can also reduce the appearance of certain facial imperfections, such as wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars.
"My experience at the Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery was stellar from start to finish. I went to Dr. Tamburrino because he is double-board certified – a HIGHLY trained and experienced plastic surgeon. A very cheerful and informative staff greeted me upon entering. Dr. Tamburrino answered all of my questions and he alleviated my concerns. I really appreciated his honesty. He does not try to oversell on procedures but provides his expert opinion on what he thinks will look amazing and NATURAL! I’ve gone to other plastic surgeons before (because I had breast cancer) however Dr. Tamburrino is truly the best! He is an artist and perfectionist. I am so happy with my results! I cannot recommend anyone higher than Dr. T!"- M.D. / Google / Sep 29, 2019

"I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his wonderful staff! I had breast cancer and was devastated at the internet photos of breast reconstruction. I did not want to look like that! When I went to Dr. Tamburrino, he immediately put all my fears to rest. He said no one would be able to tell I had breast surgery, and he is right! After breast reconstruction, I feel like me again! I don’t feel like and look like I have had breast reconstruction. I can’t say enough of Dr. Tamburrino’s wonderful bed side manner. He makes me feel important and cared for. His staff is just as wonderful, and they helped me through a very difficult time of my life."- L.K. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received from Dr. Tamburrino. I have a very complicated medical history and was on steroids for 2 years. I developed Breast Cancer and had Bilateral Mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino expertise cautioned me against Reconstruction until I tapered and was off the steroids. I was extremely disappointed however his opinion to wait was the proper thing to do. It was worth the wait as I go through weekly visits since January to have my expanders develop. His kind, caring, professional manner down right enjoyable. I had not been having trouble with pain until as I draw nearer to the end. I had one week where I was experiencing more pain than usual. As it progressed I called Dr. Tamburrino who saw me in minutes at his office. I fortunately was visiting family in Doylestown because I live two hours away. It was Easter Eve at 10 pm he saw me and relieved my terrible pain. So willing, helpful and kind! He has been the most amazing physician, when dealing with a Cancer diagnosis having him help me through this Reconstruction has been an uplifting experience. Anna his nurse makes you feel like family. She’s been supportive and caring. Kristen his Administrative Assistant is always upbeat and helpful! At the time waiting a year seemed so awful, but Dr.Tamburrino’ s professional opinion was totally in my best interest and I know now that giving me the best care was his goal. Thanks Dr. T, you are the BEST!! Lyn McNair"- L.M. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
WHO CAN GET FACIALS?
Facials by the professionals at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery are suitable for patients of all skin types and ages because they are tailored to address each individual's unique needs and concerns. Often, facials are used to target the early signs of aging (such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve the look of sun-damaged skin (including dark spots or uneven tone and texture), deep clean (acne and clogged pores), and rejuvenate dull and sallow skin. Facials can be customized to help teens and adults with chronic conditions, like acne outbreaks, rosacea, and sensitive skin. The effects of a professional facial may be enhanced when combined with a similar service, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or injectable wrinkle treatment.
HOW ARE FACIALS DONE?
After your custom treatment plan has been designed based on your skin's condition and concerns, you will be asked to relax in one of our private treatment rooms as your facial is performed. Every facial treatment will be personalized to meet your needs, but nearly all facials will begin with a deep cleaning to eliminate any dirt, oil, and makeup. After the skin is cleaned, steam is often used to open clogged pores so whiteheads and blackheads can be easily extracted. This is usually followed by an exfoliation treatment, either done by hand or with another technique (such as microdermabrasion or chemical peel). A mask or serum will then be massaged into the skin for deep nourishment. Finally, an SPF moisturizer selected for your skin type will be smoothed on to protect the skin from UV damage following the treatment.
What to Expect
Following your customized facial, you may see mild redness and irritation, but this should subside naturally in 12 – 24 hours. Most patients will see visible improvements in the appearance and feel of their complexion immediately after their treatment. To maintain the benefits of your custom facial, please talk to one of our skilled team members about developing a home skin care regimen and ask how often you can schedule regular facials at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. It may be beneficial to learn more about other facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
