What is dermaplaning?

 

Also known as blading, skin resurfacing or skin/epidermal levelling, Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells, leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. It is a non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation and completely comfortable.

Additional benefits of buffing the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion, greater penetration of skincare products as well as creating a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.

The Treatment Involves:


• Dermaplaning
• A light bespoke resurfacing peel or hydrating mask
• LED Light Therapy to help stimulate collagen production and cell renewal

Dermaplaning Aftercare


Despite popular belief, the hair does not grow back thicker. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many people 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.

Sound a little scary? It really isn’t, so long as you’re in the hands of a trained professional. Dermaplaning treatments are safe and painless.


30 minutes usually. 45 minutes if you are combining with a chemical peel or other facial upgrade.


Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen and elastin fibers, so it is superb as an anti aging treatment. The layer of dead skin cells and facial hair that trap dirt and bacteria are removed, allowing for better product absorption and effectiveness.
Dermaplaning smoothes, tones, tightens, and brightens skin, creating a flawless canvas for makeup application.


Yes! There is no downtime with dermaplaning and you may resume normal activities as soon as you leave the spa. At most, you may experience some temporary redness that subsides quickly.


No. Dermaplaning does not interfere with the follicular structure of the hair, thus having no effect on hair growth whatsoever.
Unlike terminal hair (think eyebrows), vellus hair has no appearance of a blunt end when shaved. This is often where the “thicker” looking aspect of hair growth comes from - the blunt end created by slicing the follicle.


Dermaplaning should be received once every 4 weeks (monthly) to achieve optimum anti aging benefits. For removal of facial hair, primarily, every 4-6 weeks is recommended.
