Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is the process of sanding down the skin. It has been used for a very long time in the field of plastic surgery. Although some of its function has been replaced by lasers, it still is a great tool in the armamentarium of plastic surgeons.

The goal of dermabrasion is to help the growth of new skin in the area of a scar. The new skin is produced by new cells coming from the bottom layer of the skin. Removing the superficial layer of the skin called epidermis allows the younger cells to build it up again. This new skin appears younger, smoother and healthier. The procedure is very good for acne scarring, mild irregularities of skin after cancer surgery or abnormal growths such as a rhinophyma.

The procedure can be done in a mild fashion with a diamond burr that only works on the superficial layer i.e., epidermis. It can be done aggressively using a wire brush which can cut into the deeper skin i.e., dermis. For deeper scars the wire brush works better but the risks of dermabrasion induced scarring are also higher.

It is a technically challenging procedure and should not be undertaken by a novice without proper training. The deeper the dermabrasion, the longer the healing process. Healing times can vary from 5 days to six weeks. During the healing period meticulous cleaning is essential to avoid infection and further scarring.

My Approach: I use only diamond burr at low rotation velocity to dermabrade the scars or scar revisions. I do not go deeper than the papillary dermis. I do not use dermabrasion for full face acne. I have stopped using it for ‘rhinophyma’ as well since the blade shaving is faster and there is no bloody aerosol.

Patient Testimonials

25 Jan 2013 Dr. Janjua saved my face. I was terribly scared in an alarplasty gone wrong by another surgeon on NYC. My face was uneven, botched and scared so bad I had a hard time leaving my house. When I had an initial visit with Dr J we came up with a game plan that he also talked over with colleagues, I wasn't a typical case. We scheduled the procedure and the office helped me stay comfortable and at ease during the whole time. After the surgery I knew it was going to look good. Keep in mind I have had the doc prior to Dr. Janjua do this on me 5 x, to keep trying to fix and re fix the damage. So I could tell right away it was aligned even and my suchers were placed evenly... 2 weeks after and I am so happy! I thought...

March 2014 Dr. Janjua and your amazing team, I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much I appreciate all of your caring, loving treatment of me and not a day goes by that I don’t feel love in my heart when I think of you. Thank you again for everything!!! Frank M.

BLEPHAROPLASTY PATIENT 5/17/2010 After years of procrastinating I had Dr. Janjua perform an upper and lower blepharoplasty. No one could figure out what I had done but everyone asked whether I had color contacts on. They never noticed my green eyes before because they were covered by my eyelids. I couldn’t be happier with my more youthful and natural look. Thank you Dr. Janjua for your expertise and thorough follow-up. C.A.

October 31, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, I had previously had bad facial surgery performed on my nose by another physician and I was very hesitant to have a face lift performed. I scoped you out for a year before I decided to go through with it. Even though I had been referred to you by a very good source, from past experience I knew that is not often enough. I first came to you after a corrective surgery was done on my nose by the renowned Dr. Gunter and some infection had developed. You took care of that with no problem so I started to see you for other small things. One of the big indicators of your skill and caring for each individual was just through the attention you gave me for Botox injections. You iced my face so I wouldn't bruise (I didn't have to tell you that...

Phyllis

April 2003 Dear Dr. Janjua, Please forgive me for taking so long to write this note. We have been so caught up in our son's wedding on March 22nd, the most beautiful Saturday we've had in a long time. Most of our guests hadn't seen me in a long time. I had a lot of people staring at my face! Most said I looked great, beautiful, younger. Some really tried to get me to tell them what I did. I told most people that I lost a lot of weight, quit the stressful job and changed my hair color- the ones who knew me, well already know what I did. My family thought I looked great. I am still getting used to the change. I want you to know I appreciate all your professionalism, skill, expertise, kindness and encouragement. I haven't gone online to see the pictures, I'm not sure...

Dear Dr Janjua, Tomorrow marks a year that I came to you on and emergency basis. My 7 year old son, Ben, was hit in the left temple by an SUV door. Fortunately for us, my contacts at Somerset Medical Center led me to you. I will always remember your prompt response upon learning of the emergency. You told us to come in immediately. I remember relaxing for the first time that day when I met you. Your courteous, calming, take charge manner helped me in an extremely upsetting day. I can tell you now that when I look at Ben I do not see any tell tale indication of that day. You would have to look very close. Thanks to your handiwork, when Ben looks in the mirror he is not reminded of that terrible day. His physical scars have healed. Emotionally, I know they are still there. One...

January 9,2013 Dr. Janjua is very thorough, he puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable, he asks you what you are looking to achieve and what bothers you, he reviews your options, he explains the procedure and potential risks, he reviews general aging issues and concerns that you might have, he never ever pressures you into anything, he always treats you as if you're his only patient, and his Staff possesses the same qualities, making it an overall pleasant experience. Dr. J. is very kind and attentive and he is always a pleasure to interact with. Even my husband loves him! He occasionally offers seminars/demonstrations throughout the year on aging and available procedures. He even offers monthly specials and a gracious birthday gift card to use! Any time I need to contact him, I reach out to him via RelayHealth and he personally answers me that same day...

Susan and Joe A.

September 2013 Dear Dr. Janjua and staff, Thank you for all taking such exceptional care of our daughter, Caroline. She was extremely anxious about her surgery. Dr. Janjua was very kind and patient. He held her hand in the recovery room until she was comfortable. We appreciate meeting a physician with such a gentle “bedside manner”. We have also been pleased with the nurses and office staff. All our questions have been addressed in a courteous and helpful manner. With sincere gratitude, Susan and Joe A.

Jessie

Dear Dr Janjua, I  am extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty/septoplasty, not only does my nose look great but I can breath so much easier. I've gotten so many compliments and I definitely feel more confident. The whole process went really smoothly especially since I don't deal too well with pain. My nose is so symmetrical and it really makes the whole dynamic of my face softer. I can't thank you enough. Jessie - February 2010

Colin

October 29, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, Just a few lines to thank you for taking care of me throughout my recent surgery. From the very first consultation with you I was completely confident that this would altogether be a stress free experience, as indeed it turned out to be. The quality of the pre and post surgical care has been exceptional. And I am delighted with the results. With warm regards, Yours sincerely, Colin

Lisa G.

March 2002 Dr. Janjua, Hi! Hope your new practice is going well. You are missed @ PMC. I thought you like to know my face since the dermabrasion is great. Met an old friend and she couldn't believe how good my skin looks. Thanks for everything! Lisa G.

Naim

Dear Dr Janjua, We highly appreciate the way you take care of our kids Humza and Faizan. It is a blessing to have a sincere, caring and friendly doctor around. You have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for being there for us! With love and regards, Naim, Shamaila, Humza & Faizan

Dr. Janjua is a talented artist and surgeon. We spoke at length about what I wanted my face to look like after the surgery (this is a huge decision after all), and he brought up points that I never thought of on my own. He was able to pinpoint aesthetic features that were adding to/taking away from I wanted and didn't want that I was not able to spot on my own. Essentially, he helped me get closer to EXACTLY what I wanted. It's now been almost 9 months since my rhinoplasty, and I honestly couldn't be happier. It looks so good, and I feel beautiful. It's my belief that surgery is a blend of art and science. Dr. Janjua has both. You won't find a better surgeon. On top of that, he takes the time to really talk to patients. He is one of the sweetest, kindest physicians I've...

Lisa B

July 16, 2013 Dear Dr. J – First, I’d like to thank you for helping me to breathe better! All your care and attentiveness while I was going through various complications was and is greatly appreciated! You are the most considerate doctor that I know. Your excellence in difficult nasal surgery is duly noted. Thank you. Thanks again - you rock! Sincerely Lisa B

Lindsy

Dear Dr. Janjua, The other night, there was a gas leak in my house. I came downstairs, and I was the only one who smelled it. Before I couldn’t smell anything and now I can. I want to thank you for giving me the ability to breathe. Now I go to sleep breathing through my nose and finally wake up breathing through my nose. I am also very thankful for the external changes. I feel more confident and beautiful. The entire experience was smooth thanks to you. From the consultations, to the surgery, to check ups, I felt like I was your only patient. You are such a nice person and amazing doctor. Thank you for fixing my nose inside and out. Lindsy, August 2010

Deanna L

October 29, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, I want to take the time to thank you and your staff for your kind courtesy and professionalism. After having a large neck for the past 13 years, the Neck Liposuction that you have done to correct my problem was incredible. You are a gifted surgeon, I have received so many complements on my new look and I owe it all to you. I was scared at first, but you put my mind at ease; you took care of me from the beginning to the end and I greatly appreciate that. It is nice to know that you really care about your patients. Deanna L

Judy L.

February 28, 2002 Dear Dr. Janjua, It is difficult to face major sugery, especially when there is much apprehension as to the outcome. I would like to, again, thank you for your care and concern for both my physical and emotional well being during this difficult time. Your expertise regarding the two surgical procedures I had, has had beautiful results with minimal scarring and no physical problems. Your patience with me has been gratefully appreciated. I wish you much success in your practice. You will help many people who will benefit from your knowledge. Sincerely, Judy L.

Bruce H

Dr Janjua & Team, Thank you for the excellent care given to Ilona.

I could not be any more pleased with the result of my procedure with Dr. Janjua. I went to him for rhinoplasty, and to him it was a piece of cake. Not only was Dr Janjua amazing but his staff was as well. All of them were so friendly and they made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend Dr. Janjua to anyone out there, he is very knowledgeable and it was clear that he was the best Dr. for me.

Brynne K.

Dr. J, I came in on 2/14/2012 hoping to get a little of my "youth" back and trusting that you could help. Well, I couldn't be more pleased! You are truely a skilled artist. Your staff was so very friendly which just completed the overall experience. Thanks for being so diplomatic about my anxiety towards needles! I am smiling again today....I feel like I see ME staring back at me in the mirror! Thanks! Brynne K.

Christine M.

Dr. Janjua and Staff, I want to thank you all for such a pleasant experience for a “not so pleasant” surgery! I loved my results of my rhinoplasty/septoplasty! You were all consistently friendly and accommodating! Christine M.

Ryan, Jim & Wendy M

August 22, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, The Manaskie family would like to thank you and all of your staff for all the tender love and care during the most stressful time in a parent’s life. We wanted to let you know that you've made a horrible situation a GREAT one for us all! You have made us all feel so comfortable and at ease while at your office and in the hospital with your wonderful sense of humor, expertise and professionalism at this critical time. We can't express enough our deepest gratitude and deepest appreciation for your superb surgery which resulted in our son Ryan having a beautiful straight nose after being broken. We are all honored and privileged to have this opportunity to recommend you and your staff, with total confidence to all of our family and friends. Sincerely, Ryan, Jim & Wendy M

Pat G

Nov 13, 2001 Dear Dr. Janjua, You’re the best! You got rid of those horrible laugh lines that made me look so haggard, as well as the “pouches” under my eyes. I am thrilled with the improvement. Not only do I look many years younger, but I feel younger and more vibrant than I have in years, thanks to you. You did a magnificent job for which I am very grateful. Thank you for giving me back my self-esteem. I feel very fortunate that you did my surgery before relocating your practice. Monroe County’s loss is New Jersey’s gain. Best wishes for continued success in cosmetic surgery in your new location. Sincerely, Pat G

Leanne D

Dear Dr Janjua, Thank you very much for fixing my lip. It looks so good! I was so scared but you were very nice. I hope you have a happy new year. Love, Leanne D

28 Dec 2011 I want to look rested for my age, not ready to look tired. I'm 50. I've been going to Dr. Janjua for about a year and he is the best, always honest about the procedures and the reality of what will be a good result for the patient. I have had botox, sculptura, and juvaderm and always pleased with the result.

Louie and Tanya F.

January 27, 2012 Dr. Janjua, Thank you for being the fine physician you are. Sincerely, Louie and Tanya F.

Denise M

Dear Dr. Janjua and Staff I am finally getting around to writing this long overdue thank you note for the amazing job you did on my upper eyelid surgery!!! Actually though, since I did procrastinate in getting this out, it gave me a better understanding of what a superb job you did. Why- you ask? Over the past 4 months I have gotten more compliments on the color of my eyes, or what beautiful eyes I have then I have received in my entire life! No joke, I am getting comments from my students and co-workers and even complete strangers. I can not even begin to express how unbelievably good that makes me feel. The entire process was a piece of cake - from the initial consultation, to the actual surgery and recovery. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is considering this procedure. Trust me people - you...

Margaret Mary P

July 25, 2007 Dear Dr. TJ, I wanted to thank you and all of your staff both in the office and in the OR for their courtesy and professionalism. You are a wonderful doctor, you made me very at ease and comfortable, and I had great faith in you, that you would take care of me & you did! I have beautiful results from the blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). You are an expert in your cosmetic field. I am so happy I had the surgery done and did it when I did. I look more alert and my eyes seem bigger to me. Many people have told me I look great! Thank you so much for the beautiful results. Sincerely, Margaret Mary P. (R.N.)

Henry R

Tannersville, October 25, 2001 Esteemed Dr. Janjua, I have just learned that you will be exercising your outstanding profession in a different state. Needless to say that this move affects me deeply. In fact, as a consequence of my tragic car accident of January 20, 2000, I was transported to the Pocono Medical Center and entrusted to your able and experienced hands to perform, for the first time in Monroe County, the Medialization of my left vocal cord through Ishikki Thyroplasty. The success of this difficult procedure led to an acclaimed Seminar, which you held at the Medical Center, illustrating the procedure to surgeons, doctors and medical staff of the area. Two months after your successful operation, I felt like a newborn person, capable of eating and drinking again without any tube feeding devices. I wish to thank you for your precious performance as surgeon as well as for your...

Judi J.

Thank you for being my guardian angel! I am very lucky to have you in my life!

27 Sep 2013 - 7 days post The entire experience with Dr. Janjua and his staff was wonderful. From the consultation to the removal of stitches, I felt my son was in great hands. A week after the procedure, his stitches were removed and the incision was barely visible. I would highly recommend Dr. Janjua to anyone in need of a cosmetic surgeon.

Allie

December 2011 (Chin Implant Patient) Dear Dr. Janjua, I love my new chin! Thank you for making me more beautiful, self confident and photogenic! You’re the best! Love Allie

TC DC

Our experience with Sculptra and Dr Janjua well exceeded our expectations. The procedure was much easier and comfortable than we expected. I had the procedure a few weeks earlier than my husband. I was surprised at how minor the discomfort was. During the procedure I felt some pressure and a few pinches that was all. The day of the procedure I experienced some puffiness. I was instructed to use ice for swelling and to massage my face for 5 minutes 5 times a day. By the second day I resumed my normal activities and looked and felt fine. My face was a little tender when I applied my make-up to the area but not painful. It has been 3 months since I received Sculptra and I am thrilled! I get many compliments on how young I look. I feel like I turned the clock back 10 years, really! I would...

May 29, 2007 Hi Dr. J! Sorry for the delayed response - our first house guest (our granddaughter) is here visiting us and we've been real busy playing. No, you didn't send any pictures, and I'd love to see them - for comparison purposes. I'll send you some new ones when Mike gets a chance to use his camera. Everything is going very, very well. I'm healing so nicely that I hardly ever think about it. The feeling is gradually returning to the sides of my face and my ears. The scars under my eyes are slowly fading, as well. I'm being very careful to stay out of the sun and yes, I'm diligent about applying sunscreen. I even got a big floppy hat that blocks UV rays. Thanks again for the great work - I just couldn't be any happier with the outcome. The results of the surgery are...

Mrs. Lori M

October 18, 2001 Doctor Tanveer Janjua Dr. Janjua worked absolute miracles in my eyes, on my daughter Amber. He took a child that could barely hear and helped her to hear again. He also took her disfigured earlobes and made them new again. He made her feel and look beautiful again and gave her back the self-esteem and self-confidence that she had lost through all of these difficulties she endured. For this, Amber and myself are eternally grateful to Dr. Janjua. It took a long time to find a Doctor that is as wonderful as Dr. T.J. His professionalism as well as his personalism stands in uppermost excellence and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Mrs. Lori M

6 Jan 2013 I've had Laser hair removal as well as Botox. Dr. Janjua is very professional and kind.. He is conservative and doesn't feel the need to go overboard with Botox so you can maintain a natural look. I've received tons of compliments on my skin. I've also had great results with the hair removal as well. I recommended him to all my friends.

Marynn V. (R.N.)

December 23, 2011 (from a scalp and neck melanoma patient) Dr. Janjua Just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all that you do & for just being you. You made a very scary time in my life a little less scary & a little easier. You treated my whole person & not just my diagnosis. You listened & you cared. And I can’t thank you enough. If the reason I worked at the clinic was to meet you because one day I would need this surgery , well it was totally worth it. I’m so grateful for all you’ve done. You and your entire staff make unpleasant times a little more pleasant than they would have been. I only hope to find a job where my co-workers will be as friendly, caring and professional as you all are. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and blessings...

Karmjit S

Dear Dr. Janjua, I want to thank you for taking great care of me during my recent surgery. It was my first experience for surgery and you made it so simple and easy to understand the surgical procedures. I admire your professionalism and want to thank you for everything Regards, Karmjit S.

Maggie C

Dear Dr Janjua, We just wanted to thank you and your staff again for the superb medical attention we received for our daughter Alexandra. Being a physician’s daughter I’m very familiar with the medical world and your professionalism, bedside manner and overall attention and care to every detail were above superior! As I’ve mentioned on several occasions, I wish our future Residents could have the pleasure of learning under you, as they would be learning from one of the best. It is very rare for a patient to have the opportunity to recommend a physician and its office with absolutely no reservations and with total confidence…I welcome the opportunity to refer you to our friends and family. Respectfully yours, Maggie & Ron C

Diane T

October 16, 2001 In as much as I want to write this letter I find it very difficult to do so. We the community is loosing a wonderful doctor, as well as a friend to all he comes in contact with. I’ve never met a doctor with such a comforting bedside manner and words always to soothe. His first concern is of course his patients. Always with a smile he would greet us. My first encounter with Dr. Janjua was November 23, 1999. His diagnosis for my husband was squamous cell carcinoma, cancer of the neck and throat stage 4. Needless to say no one wants to hear that, although Jim my husband took it better than I. After Doctor Janjua completed all tests needed the date was set Dec 23, 1999. Knowing we had no insurance he gave Jim his surgery ‘8 hours’ for a Christmas present. For that...

I was referred by my dermatologist. He gave me the names of other doctors but when I asked him who he would refer his wife to if she was in my position, he said, "Dr. Janjua". Dr. Janjua is certainly the best doctor I have ever had. I had basal skin cancer on my nose. My situation was very challenging and I was quite upset and concerned about my appearance. Dr. Janjua did an impeccable job and everyone I know tells me they cannot tell I had surgery! In addition to his expertise, Dr. Janjua was genuinely interested in me as an individual and was very sympathetic and supportive. I would be pleased to recommend him to anyone considering or requiring facial plastic surgery.

Sue Joe C.

December 16, 2011 (from RHINOPHYMA PATIENT) Dr. J Staff, Words cannot express the many thanks for what you have done for us. Just when we thought nobody could help Joe we found you. You and your staff have truly changed Joe back to the person he once was, not only in appearance but in personality. Many, Many Thanks Sue Joe C.

Sue Y

Dear Dr. Janjua, I cannot thank you enough for your expert care in removing the skin cancer and putting my face back together again afterwards. When you first removed the cancer, I felt like the hole in my face was a big as the Grand Canyon and that I would never look the same again. However, since our very first meeting, I felt comfortable and confident in your care and that's what kept me fairly calm. I knew that you were skilled and passionate about your work and that you would do everything possible for me. Your patience and kindness as I went through five different surgeries gave me a great deal of comfort during a very difficult time. Not only did you totally remove the cancer, but you worked magic in getting me to a point where I was photogenic enough for my daughter's wedding. My face is well...

Joanne

May 21, 2007 Dear Dr Janjua, How can I thank you? I can’t express how great my eyes look, so much better than I expected. My confidence has risen. You are truly an artist and more. Most sincerely, Joanne

Christopher B

October 10, 2001 Dr. Janjua I would like to take a moment of your time, to thank you for making my quality of life better. Your professionalism was apparent from my first consultation through my last visit. Your leaving will be a considerable loss to this community. I wish you and your wife all the best. And of course continued success with your new practice. Sincerely, Christopher B

Carlin D.

December 12, 2011 (from a 20 year old Rhinoplasty Patient) Dr. Janjua Thank you for doing such a great job on my nose. Although no one ever mentioned it to me, I had always felt uncomfortable with my appearance because of my nose. Since my surgery in May, I have been incredibly happy with how I look. Before I was never able to feel my best because my nose had always brought me down. I could not be happier with the fantastic job you’ve done, and I am forever grateful. Thank you. Carlin D.

Justin A.

Dr. Janjua, First off I would like to thank you and your staff for the professionalism shown with each visit. I would also like to say how pleased I am with the results of my rhinoplasty. I commend you on the great job that you did. I was hesitant at first to have this procedure done but after speaking with you and seeing how knowledgeable you were and caring you are with your patients, I knew that I wanted you to perform this surgery. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who is considering plastic surgery, specifically rhinoplasty. I was very comfortable with the entire experience and would have never guessed that it would go that smoothly. You said it at the initial visit that you treat your patients like family and that's exactly how I felt. I thank you again for the great results and welcome the pportunity to...

Nancy S

May 15, 2007 Dear Dr Janjua, A few months ago, I started looking at myself and thinking I look older than I feel. I mentioned to my physician, Dr Joseph Morandi, that after losing weight, my neck and chin looked terrible. He told me he knew a wonderful plastic surgeon if I was interested. I started to think about it and decided to call your office. LUCKY ME! You suggested what I needed and calmed my fears. I decided to proceed with the mini facelift and now look like I feel. Dr Janjua, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You are a truly gifted and wonderful surgeon. The surgery was a big step for me but I new I was in excellent hands. Because of your great care, I had a fast recovery and was back at work in a week. I love having people look and ask me if...

Ellie B

Dear Dr Janjua, When I am with my daughter, people assume we are sisters. Poor Christine! People do not call me “Maam” or “young lady” nor do they move aside so the “old lady” can pass. When I mumble about “having a senior moment”, people give me strange looks. This is all due to your help. How can mere words express the thanks that are sent your way. God made you a gifted surgeon and then he blessed me by showing me the way to your practice. Thank you, Ellie B PS – Your staff is wonderful, too!
