Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-surgical facial treatment where a 10 gauge scalpel is used to lightly remove the top layer of dead, dull skin. The result? A smooth, glowing complexion, immediately. 

Is Dermaplaning painful?

Although Dermaplaning can sound quite daunting, it really isn’t dangerous or painful, assuming that you’re in the hands of a qualified professional. Yes, this is the blade that they use in surgery. But, no, you won’t be cut open. The blade will be lightly pulled across the skin – allowing only dead skin and hair to be removed. 

What does Dermaplaning feel like?

Dermaplaning is actually quite a therapeutic & relaxing treatment.

What/who is dermaplaning good for?

Dermaplaning is for anybody looking to improve the health of their skin – as it is a type of physical exfoliation. It is known for leaving the skin glowing – as the dull, dead layer of skin is removed from the face. Dermaplaning leaves the skin visibly smoother – and allows greater penetration of all skincare products when applied on the face. 

Dermaplaning is a big favourite within the film & entertainment industry – especially with models & actresses. Why, you ask? Dermaplaning is known for removing that pesky ‘Peach Fuzz’ that clogs up makeup – and which is magnified whilst under the spotlight in the face of a camera. Dermaplaning is a perfect solution for individuals who want smoother application & longer lasting makeup. 

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types, with the exception of acne sufferers. If you have deep acne, wait until your skin has cleared before trying this treatment. Always be sure to explain any allergies or illnesses that you are suffering from with your dermatologist before your treatment. 

How long does a Dermaplaning treatment take?

Dermaplaning treatments usually take approximately 40 minutes.

How often should I get a Dermaplaning treatment?

What are the side effects of Dermaplaning treatments?
