Dermal remodeling, also known as nonablative derm remodeling, is the latest advancement in skincare. Although it's a newcomer to the non-surgical procedure market, it's the subject of plenty of buzz due to its proven effectiveness on sun damage, acne, rosacea, and signs of aging. It's also considered a no-downtime alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion. If you're seeking similar results to these procedures but can't sacrifice the recovery time, dermal remodeling may be your answer. It promotes rapid cell turnover without any subcutaneous damage, which is why skin conditions that are notoriously hard to treat, like rosacea, respond well to it. Best of all, it doesn't affect the outer layers of the skin, so you can return to your normal schedule immediately after treatment.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion work on the outside of the skin. They are certainly effective procedures with results that can be seen and felt immediately. But because they involve working on the surface of the skin, they also require post-procedure downtime. Deep chemical peels, like the ones that use phenol, take at least a month to heal. Although the promise of smoother and brighter skin is desirable, that downtime can be terribly inconvenient for people with full-time jobs or otherwise demanding schedules.
How Does Dermal Remodeling Work?
Dermal Remodeling uses the power of light to rejuvenate the lower layers from the inside out. It utilizes the Nd:YAG laser device, which has been proven effective in other procedures like laser hair removal and vein removal. The Nd:YAG only penetrates 20% of the skin for minimum damage. It stimulates fibroblasts, which play a key role in the production of collagen and elastin. Dermal Remodeling is also an excellent way to get down into the underlying tissue of the face and promote better circulation. Circulation is key to a variety of aesthetic benefits, such as even skin tone, improved dark undereye circles, and the skin's ability to heal quickly.
Unlike skincare procedures that work on the surface of the skin, dermal planing is able to reach underlying scar tissue and trauma. These areas are notoriously hard to treat and may not respond well to surface-level procedures because the damage is so deeply rooted in the skin. Dermal planing can reach these deep roots and promote healing. Dermal planing also helps strengthen the epidermal barrier, which is your skin's natural protectant to the sun, environmental stress, and other toxins. A strong epidermal barrier will improve your skin's overall appearance and prevent premature aging.
Dermal Remodeling Risks and Side Effects
There are virtually no risks or side effects to dermal remodeling. At most, patients may experience minor redness that should fade within a few minutes after completing treatment.
Dermal Remodeling Cost and Time
Dermal remodeling costs about $200 per session, but this price will vary based on your individual provider and geographical location. Each session takes approximately thirty minutes. For optimal results, four to eight biweekly sessions are recommended.
