Rejuvenate your skin at Andrea Trowers Dermatology


The lowdown: Peach fuzz, be gone! Same goes for unflattering dull skin. At Andrea Trowers Dermatology, the latest in facials, derma planing — blading the skin to manually exfoliate — is de rigueur. And with good reason.

“Derma planing removes dead skin cells and hair — leaving the skin silky soft and rejuvenated,” aesthetician Nena Valyi says.

A sterile surgical blade is held against the skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving. The end result? Bright and supple skin.

The ’hood: Located in the L.A. Fitness building in North Miami, Andrea Trowers Dermatology is minutes away from Bal Harbour Shops.

The ambiance: This isn’t your mother’s dreary dermatologist office. Wallpapered walls, zebra-print-covered chairs and fuchsia accents create a modern and contemporary vibe. You’ve just got to love a practice that’s bursting with color and attention to detail — down to Dr. Trowers’ neon patent-leather stilettos.

The highlights: Book the Micro Peel Facial, which includes derma planing, microdermabrasion, lactic peel, extractions, dry ice application and moisturizer. “This treatment is the cure for softer, clearer, taut skin,” Valyi says. It’s also quite addictive, so consider yourself warned.

Andrea Trowers Dermatology, 1801 NE 123rd St., Suite 417, North Miami; 305-899-2511.
