Dermaplaning is a treatment that works by gently skimming away the top layer of skin to remove any dead skin cells resulting in smoother, more refreshed skin.
No – during your treatment you may feel a pulling and/or a scraping sensation on your skin, but it doesn’t hurt.
Dermaplaning is used to target a range of concerns, including signs of aging, acne scarring, and uneven tone. It can also help to remove vellus hair (‘peach fuzz’) from your face.
Dermaplaning is suitable for almost all skin types, though it is not recommended for those with active or cystic acne.
It is a great treatment for dry skin, fine lines, aging, pigmentation, and acne scarring.
We recommend that any breakouts clear before undergoing this treatment.
We will begin by steaming your face and giving you a basic facial to ensure your skin is clean and free from any other creams, makeup, moisturisers, or topical treatments.
During your Dermaplaning treatment, a surgical blade is moved across the skin at a 45° angle to remove dead/congested skin from your face.
This will also remove fine hair & ‘peach fuzz making your skin glow and removing any dullness in the skin, and the new layer of healthy skin cells helps create a smoother, more youthful look.
The ideal ‘quick fix’ treatment, Dermaplaning is done in just 30 minutes with guaranteed results after just one session. This method of deep exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin and fine hair to restore your skin to a healthier, youthful condition.
Celebrities and regular makeup users love Dermaplaning as it helps eliminate the ‘peach fuzz’ that can often leave your makeup looking cakey. The elimination of this facial hair and dead skin cells works to create a truly bright and refreshed complexion.
It also allows for better absorption of your skincare products, leaving you with longer-lasting results.
Some people experience dryness or even some peeling between sessions, this usually subsides within 2-3 hours of your treatment.
Those with sensitive skin may have some redness after the session – this usually subsides within a couple of hours.
Unlike many other treatments, you will see results from your Dermaplaning treatment almost immediately – and without the need for multiple treatments.
Depending on your skin type and concerns we may recommend a course of treatments to ensure optimal results.
No. Dermaplaning takes away your peach fuzz but will not make your hair grow back darker or thicker.
After your treatment is finished, you will be given a specific set of aftercare instructions. These will also be explained to you by your clinician.
We recommend that you avoid aerobic or intense physical activity until all redness has subsided.
Further after care includes using SPF 30+ at all times – even if it’s cloudy outside.
All of our clients first come in for a consultation. The consultation is there to talk you through your options, give you a patch test and check for any medical issues. The consultation costs £50 but this comes off the price of the treatment package that you go with. At your consultation, one of our nurse clinicians will talk you through options and get you booked in for your first treatment.
