Dermaplaning in Monmouth County, NJ at Radiant by MD
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure that allows you to get a brighter and smoother complexion immediately after treatment. It also helps to increase cellular turnover, which leads to overall changes in the appearance and feel of your skin. In addition, this non-invasive process eliminates dirt and hair from your face, resulting in immediate results. It also promotes collagen formation, which helps to keep your skin radiant and youthful-looking for more extended periods of time. To learn more about Dermaplaning in Monmouth County, schedule an appointment with one of our medical specialists at Radiant by MD.
Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation procedure performed in-office by our aesthetic specialists, who use a surgical scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) off the surface of your skin. A similar procedure to shaving, it is often performed on the face—but the result is a far closer shave than what you can safely accomplish with even the sharpest home razors.
Dermaplaning provides results comparable to other in-office exfoliating treatments, like microdermabrasion or a light chemical peel. Benefits include brighter and more even skin tone, smoother texture, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. When compared to other exfoliating treatment choices that may irritate sensitive skin or cause hyperpigmentation, dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliating treatment option for people with all skin types. An additional benefit is that by eliminating the top layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning may help to increase the absorption of skincare products for up to 21 days, which is about the time it takes for a new layer of dead skin cells to build on your skin's surface.
Typically, your skin is prepared with an alcohol swab to eliminate any extra oil before the treatment. Then, your provider will use one hand to gently stretch each section of skin until it is tight and smooth. The other hand is used to delicately move the scalpel over the skin's surface, scraping away dead skin cells and facial hair with short, rapid strokes.
The majority of treatments are between 20 and 30 minutes in length. At Radiant by MD, the sloughing is followed by applying a collagen mask, which helps to hydrate your skin afterward. Dermaplaning can also be utilized as a precursor to other in-office treatments like a medical facial or a chemical peel because eliminating dead skin cells helps optimize the penetrability of any future treatments. Exfoliating might make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so your provider will finish your session by applying sunscreen to the treated areas.
Get the smooth, luminous skin you deserve
After they receive Dermaplaning Monmouth County patients will experience no downtime. Your skin may appear pink for up to an hour following the treatment. Some patients choose to get their dermaplaning done during their lunch break and then return to their workplace. There are no major side effects related to dermaplaning; however, avoiding sun exposure and high heat exposure for three to five days is suggested. It is essential to use sunscreen to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring. The use of at-home exfoliation treatments should be avoided for the same period of time to reduce the risk of irritation caused by over-exfoliation. Dermaplaning results are not permanent, and your provider may recommend further treatments every four to six weeks to achieve the best results. However, you can expect your skin to look smooth, luminous, and radiant almost immediately after application.

The use of local anesthetics or topical numbing creams during your dermaplaning session is not necessary because the treatment is entirely painless.
If your skin becomes inflamed or develops a rash, be sure to tell your provider. The blade may have removed an excessive amount of skin and disrupted your skin's barrier function, enabling an excessive amount of moisture to escape and irritants to enter. Typically, a thick moisturizer—or a few drops of hydrocortisone cream—will help soothe and nourish the irritated skin until your skin's moisture barrier has had time to restore itself completely.
The cost of your treatment depends on whether you are purchasing a single treatment or an entire package and if you are having the procedure done in conjunction with another facial treatment. Your provider will discuss your skincare plan and treatment costs with you during your consultation.
