Are you looking for a skin exfoliation treatment?
Dr. Thomas Leach, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is pleased to offer Dermaplaning at his Princeton, NJ medical practice. Dermaplaning is an excellent skin exfoliation system. The procedure essentially uses a surgical blade type to scrape off an individual’s dead facial skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick, safe, and effective procedure, performed by Dr. Leach’s licensed aesthetician to gently exfoliate you skin. Dermaplaning is completely pain-free. Not only are dead facial skin cells removed but the small, fine baby hairs (vellus hairs) are also removed. The result is softer and glowing skin.
Dermaplaning is not shaving! Your facial hair will NOT grow back darker as Dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz). Your vellus hair will grow back the same size and color.
Why Should You Consider Dermaplaning?
Dead skin cells along with oil and dirt can become trapped in the fine hair (peach fuzz) on your face causing clogged pores and breakouts. With Dermaplaning, the dead skin cells and fine hairs are removed resulting in cleaner and healthier skin. Patients with acne scars can also benefit from this procedure. Dermaplaning can also help with improving the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Many women comment on how smooth their skin feels and are pleased with the ease of applying makeup after their dermaplaning procedure.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
During your appointment, our licensed aesthetician gently pulls your skin taut and lightly glides the blade in an upward motion using precise feathering strokes. An average Dermaplaning treatment alone takes 10 to 20 minutes and can be done as a stand-alone option or as a part of a customized facial.
Dermaplaning results can last up to four weeks. Routine maintenance is recommended to achieve healthy and radiant skin.
