Dermaplaning is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that improves the feel and appearance of the face. It eliminates unhealthy skin cells and thin hairs from the face to present a refreshed appearance. The service is performed in the office of Dr. Adam R. Kolker. This treatment rejuvenates the skin, resulting in smooth, exfoliated, and a healthy appearance. At our office in NYC Dermaplaning is offered as an individual or add-on treatment.
If you are consistently battling discoloration, blemishes, or scarring from acne on the facial area, it can be difficult to find a treatment that delivers efficient results. Dermaplaning can effectively treat many skin conditions.
Dermaplaning techniques are performed with a microblade. The tool glides and scrapes the skin to remove impurities. During the procedure, an aesthetician preps the skin by introducing serum to cleanse and moisturize.
It is a non-invasive and considered a pain-free procedure. The microblade is then used to carefully scrape the area of treatment. Next, an invigorating balm is placed on the treatment area to replenish and hydrate the skin. Most patients explain the entire procedure as calming and pleasant. Some people elect to combine Dermaplaning in NYC with chemical peels. Others find it to be effective as a stand-alone treatment. The preferred option is contingent upon your skin type and your desired results. Most patients feel that receiving it as a standalone treatment is effective in achieving the enhancement they are looking for.
Prior to receiving your scheduled Dermaplaning NYC patients should take the necessary precautions to properly prepare. Immediately discontinue using any products that contain exfoliating contents (retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, retinol, astringents, etc.) at least 24-48 hours prior to treatment. If you have recurring cold sores or a herpes diagnosis, you may be given a regimen of anti-viral meds before and after the treatment. You will receive a consultation offering suggestions of products that can improve results and minimize the occurrence of prospective side effects.
You are likely excited about your Dermaplaning treatment. To make the experience as pleasant as possible, you should know what to expect following the procedure. Each treatment session is unique and could yield varying results for each patient.
There are a few common expectations that you may or may not encounter. Minimal swelling and red discoloration may be present but should disappear within 1 day. You should avoid conditions that lead to excessive perspiration; hot tubs, steam saunas, and exercise for at least 24 hours. Avoid any products that contain exfoliating contents (retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, retinol, astringents, etc.) for 24 hours after the procedure. You may wear mineral makeup but avoid all others. Finally, you may continue your normal skincare regimen 24 hours after the procedure.
Dermaplaning is a safe alternative to gently rejuvenate the surface of the skin. Any person who desires to remove unwanted or excessive facial hair can benefit from dermaplaning. It is ideal for expectant mothers or those who cannot utilize certain exfoliating systems or products. Individuals currently taking any retinoid treatments should not receive Dermaplaning because it may result in severe irritation of the skin and a mild to an extreme sense of discomfort.
