Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is an extremely popular non-invasive treatment that involves the gentle removal of dead skin and fine vellus hair "peach fuzz" from your face using a surgical scalpel.

Dermaplaning can result in smoother, brighter looking skin, and because you no longer have dead skin cells present on your face, your skincare products will be allowed to penetrate the skin much more easily.

Frequently asked questions

What is Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is a non-invasive method of gentle exfoliation that involves the use of a surgical scalpel to remove the top layer of dull, dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz), to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion underneath.




Who can have Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning can be recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who are currently having active acne, and those with heavy facial hair such as beards. A full consultation is always carried out before any treatment to ensure suitability.




What is the difference between Dermaplaning and a Peel?


Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation of the dead skin cells. It does not use any chemicals or enzymes to remove skin cells and has no effect on live skin cells. You will not peel or visibly shed skin after your treatment, where peels can sometimes result in visible skin peeling. Dermaplaning offers a good alternative to those to wish for professional grade exfoliation without any potential downtime.




What happens during my treatment?


Dermaplaning is a painless procedure that includes a deep cleansing of the skin and professional exfoliation with a surgical scalpel. The sensation of dermplaning is described as similar to a close shave. A restoratative treatment is applied and then finished with skincare that is suited to your skin. - deep cleanse

Will my hair grow back darker and thicker?


No. This is a popular concern, but rest assured dermplaning is evidenced not to alter your natural hair growth. However as the process involves removing the vellus hair with a blade at the thickest part of the hair, when the hair grows back it may appear slightly thicker or darker for a very short period of time. However this difference is merely cosmetic and most clients do not notice.




How often can I get a Dermaplaning treatment?


Dermaplaning removes 21 days of dead skin cells, so it is recommended to allow the skin cells to finish its regeneration cycle before having another treatment. A Dermaplaning treatment is recommended every 3-4 weeks.




I am pregnant, can I get a Dermaplaning treatment?


Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment when you are pregnant as it does not contain any active ingredients or chemicals and can also help with hormonal breakouts.
