Dermaplaning

Conveniently Located to Serve Rutherford, Verona, Bergen and Essex Counties

Dermaplaning uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells. It also effectively removes the very fine (peach fuzz) hair that is commonly found on the face. This treatment is great for those people who want the advantages commonly seen with professional exfoliation, but have skin that is too sensitive for the suction associated with traditional microdermabrasion.

Dermaplaning

Frequently Asked Questions

How does dermaplaning work?

Your skin is pulled taut while a sterile surgical blade is very gently scraped across the surface. This blade removes dead skin, and vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the face. This leaves the skin ultra smooth and bright. 

Will the hair on my face grow back darker or thicker?

No! It is impossible to change the structure of your hair follicle by manipulating the hair only on the surface. Your hair will gradually grow back exactly how it was before the treatment. 

Am I a candidate for dermaplaning?

An aesthetic nurse will analyze your skin prior to treatment and determine if you are a candidate. If you have found in the past that your skin is too sensitive for a microdermabrasion, dermaplaning may work best for you. 

Can Dermaplaning be combined with chemical peels or IPL treatments?

Yes, and it is often recommended.

How often do I need to get this treatment done?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 4 weeks. 

What do I need to do before and after my dermaplaning treatment?

You should discontinue any exfoliating products including alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) serums, scrubs, retinol night creams and topical prescriptions (Triluma, Retin-A, Tretinoin etc…) for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days after your treatment. It’s critical to apply sunscreen daily after this treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun’s damaging rays. 

Is there downtime associated with dermaplaning?

There is no downtime after this treatment. You may have slight redness for a few hours, but your skin will be smooth and glowing in no time. This is considered a “lunch time treatment”, because often people will return back to work as soon as the session is over.

Is this treatment safe for pregnant or nursing women?

Yes this treatment can be performed safely on pregnant or lactating women.

⚡️Laser hair removal offers a multitude of advantages over traditional shaving methods.

✨Unlike shaving, which only provides temporary hair removal, laser treatments offer long-term reduction in hair growth. Additionally, laser hair removal targets hair follicles directly, leading to smoother and softer skin over time.

👉With fewer ingrown hairs and less irritation, laser hair removal saves time and minimizes the risk of nicks and cuts associated with shaving.

Who doesn’t adore beautifully enhanced lips? Let us unveil the enchanting process behind achieving those captivating pouts:

1️⃣Cleansing and numbing: The lips and surrounding areas are thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils that could increase the risk of infection. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the lips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

2️⃣Poking: Using a fine needle or cannula, the injector creates entry points or small punctures along the lip border or within the lips themselves.

3️⃣Injecting: The filler is carefully injected into the marked areas or along the lip borders, following the predetermined plan to achieve the desired shape and volume.

4️⃣Massaging: After injection, the injector may gently massage the lips to distribute the filler evenly and reduce the risk of lumps or irregularities.

5️⃣Assessment: Once the filler has been injected, the injector evaluates the results and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and natural-looking enhancement.

6️⃣Aftercare: Patients are advised on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, refraining from touching or pressing on the lips, and using cold compresses to reduce swelling.
