About Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment in which we a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and (along with the peach fuzz on your face).

You might be wondering …….

Why is this necessary?

It’s because the buildup of dead skin and microscopic hairs can make your complexion appear dull, flaky, and can even cause breakouts due to clogged pores and hair follicles.

Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the technician simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.

This is a great treatment for clients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. It is also a first choice for those of you who have excess vellous hair on the skin. This hair often causes a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives you healthier looking skin.

Although merely an old wives’ tale, many are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellous hair (fine and usually blonde), it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

Removing the top layers of the skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers, perfectt for your active moisturisers and night creams.

  • Suitable for most skins.
  • The treatment results in a more refined, smooth appearance.

Make up and tinted moisturisers will glide on easily and your skin will be glowing after a dermaplaning session.
