DERMAPLANING 

 

Gently buff away the dead skin cells that make complexions look dull and contribute to clogged pores and spots. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can be absorbed into the skin where they need to be, rather than sitting on the skin's surface. It removes peach fuzz / vellus hair and creates clear channels into the skin as well as creating a soft, smooth surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly. Dermaplaning gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Dermaplaning uses a sterile surgical blade to perform a deep exfoliation. The edge of the scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle to scrape the build-up of dirt and oils in and around the skin and vellus hair. The vellus hair is completely removed during the process leaving skin ultra-smooth and creating the perfect base for make-up application. By removing the top layers of dead skill cells, we can improve the absorption of products and fully replenish the skins moisture.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?

First we will double cleanse and exfoliate the skin. The dermaplaning procedure is methodically carried out working the whole face one area at a time. After the dermaplaning is complete we will apply a light acid peel if needed to suit your skin type and condition. This will be followed by a cooling facemask, light therapy, serum and moisturiser depending on skin type to finish. The treatment is completely pain-free and no downtime is required. 

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
Dermaplaning is a very safe procedure. Skin is stretched during the procedure and the blade is always held at a 45-degree angle to reduce the risk of nicking the skin with the blade. If you have dry patches of skin, a small amount of serum is applied to enable to the blade to glide across the skin smoothly. 
Skin may be a little pink immediately after treatment due to being stretched but this normally subsides within an hour or so. Peach fuzz / vellus hairs do not come back thicker and stronger. It will grow back at exactly the same rate, thickness and texture as before

HOW MANY DO I NEED?

Dermaplaning treatments can be carried out every 3-4 weeks and removal of peach fuzz / vellus hair and dead skin can be achieved with a single treatment. One of the main benefits of this advanced facial is that it can be paired to enhance the benefits and results of other treatments such as skin peels, enzyme treatments, microneedling, radio frequency or BB glow treatments. By removing the build-up of hair, oils, dirt and dry skin it increases penetration of product and complementary therapies meaning quicker, better results. 

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?

Dermaplaning is the ultimate glow treatment, skin is instantly ultra-smooth, glowing and refreshed, When combined with other therapies results are amplified. Dermaplaning is three times as effective as microdermabrasion alone and creates the perfect base for makeup application.
