Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive exfoliating treatment which removes several layers of dead skin cells as well as the fluffy blonde facial hair (vellus hair) that annoys so many of us! Dermaplane can be had as a stand alone treatment- perfect before an event to give you bright, glowy skin – or prior to other skincare treatments (such as peels, LED Dermalux, skin-needling) to achieve even better results. The results are immediate with no downtime.
How does Dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning uses a sterile medical blade to gently scrape away the superficial layers of dead skin cells. The benefits are much smoother skin – makeup will go on like never before and look flawless; removal of soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil in turn promoting better skin health. Skincare products or other treatments are more effective as products are able to penetrate the skin more deeply.
What does the treatment involve?
All makeup is removed with a gentle double cleanse. The skin is then cleaned of any surface oil with a skin preparation solution. The practitioner then gently moves the blade at a 45 degree angle back and forth over small sections of skin a number of times. The practitioner will move onto a new section until the whole face is treated. After removing surface dead skin layers with the blade, a gentle enzymatic peel is massaged onto the skin to loosen any remnants of debris. This can feel a little tingly but is not uncomfortable or unpleasant.
