Rejuvenate Dull, Uneven Skin In New Jersey

Your skin is constantly battered during everyday life—by both internal and external stressors. As a result, it may become uneven and washed out because of dryness, injury, and a buildup of dead cells that clog the pores. Sometimes referred to as microplanning or blading, dermaplaning at New Jersey’s The Peer Group is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair, dead skin cells, and dirt from epidermis to give the skin a silky smooth and youthful appearance.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is essentially a cosmetic treatment that involves shaving away the fine vellus hairs that trap dirt and oils, also known as peach fuzz or “baby hair,” while at the same time removing the outer layers of dead skin, scar tissue and dirt from the face. Patients who have inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and sunburn may not be good candidates for dermaplaning.

Procedure

During this in-office procedure, a sterile scalpel is lightly run over the surface of the skin at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the dry, flaky cells. This allows a layer of newer, healthier skin cells to come to the surface.

Patients won’t usually experience any discomfort, Since the treatment is gentle and non-abrasive, it can be ideal for patients who have sensitive skin.

Recovery

There is no downtime or recovery required after this low-risk procedure. Although this is very rare, whiteheads may develop several days after.

Results

The goal behind this treatment is to leave patients with smoother, softer, and more radiant skin. The skin will look clearer right after a session, though it may take several days before the full results can be seen. Dermaplaning often has the benefit of improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sun damage, dull skin, dry skin, hyperpigmentation, and minor acne scars.

The results typically last for around three weeks to one month. It’s critical for patients to wear sunscreen after they have had this treatment, as it makes their skin more sensitive to sunlight. This procedure also allows topical products to penetrate the skin more effectively and improves makeup application because patients have a softer, cleaner canvas.

Costs

In your consultation, you will discuss the cost per treatment session, payments, and other details.
