Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for manually exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client healthier looking skin. Clients 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 vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. As we age, our cell turnover decreases and this affects our skin texture and tone, Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get down into the skin where they need to be rather than sitting on the skin’s surface.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermaplaning uses a 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.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
After makeup is removed the skin will be double-cleansed to create a clear canvas for treatment. Skin is then blotted and degreased using an oil-free toner. The dermaplaning procedure is methodically carried out working the whole face one area at a time. After the dermaplaning is complete we will apply an enzyme mask, brightening lotion serum, moisturiser and SPF.
The treatment is completely pain-free and no downtime is required.
ARE THERE ANY 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 TREATMENTS WOULD I NEED?
Dermaplaning treatment can be carried out every 4-6 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 and Dermapen treatments.
