Learn more about the revolutionary new facial treatment taking the industry by storm...
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic beauty treatment involving the use of a surgical blade to essentially scrape your skin. In doing this it is removing all of the dead skin and vellus hairs that can contribute to a dull skin tone and can also trap oils and dirt.
Removes all unwanted facial hairs
Removes several layers of dead skin
Improves product penetration
By removing dead skin, the risk of spots is reduced as dead skin can get trapped in pores and become infected, causing a spot
Improves makeup application
Aids acne scarring due to its exfoliating nature
Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (again because it's an exfoliating treatment) - can also aid hyperpigmentation
Who is it ideal for?
Dermaplaning is ideal for anyone wanting a deeply exfoliating treatment that will leave skin glowing! Traditional methods of exfoliating - scrubs etc - can be damaging for skin over time, whereas dermaplaning is just as effective and not damaging.
It is an ideal facial treatment for women who are pregnant/breastfeeding as it deeply exfoliates skin without the need for harsh/harmful chemicals/acids.
People with mature skin types will benefit from dermplaning and its anti-aging benefits.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
No, it is a pain free treatment.
When isn't dermaplaning suitable?
Dermaplaning isn't suitable if you have active acne or cold sores. This is because the treatment could spread bacteria and worsen these conditions.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
In short, no. However we assess whether the hairs on your face are vellus (peach fuzz) and nothing more, those with darker hair and medical conditions such as polycystic ovaries disease - a condition that can cause an excess of hair.
What's the difference between having it done in the salon and doing it at home myself?
There are many risks to doing a DIY version of this treatment. The main risk is that of infection. In the salon our blades are clinical and completely sterile, whilst we also know the correct techniques to avoid injury.
