Dermaplaning is a highly effective skin treatment that uses a fine blade to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove hair from your face. It can be used to give your skin a smooth surface for a radiant, youthful look, and to remove any short, soft hairs on your face.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

· Gentle
· Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated regularly
· Removes dry, rough skin
· Can treat mild acne scarring
· Removes “vellus” hair
· Make-up application is much smoother as it does not adhere to the “vellus” hair
· Skincare products work much better as they can penetrate more deeply into the skin
· Gives instantly softer, smoother skin
· Can be safely carried out every 3-4 weeks
· Suitable for pregnant women
· Face can appear slimmer afterwards
· Can be used as a preparation for chemical peels/laser treatment
· Increases cell turnover in the skin


WHAT IS DERMA-PLANNING ? Dermaplaning is an effective alternative to microdermabrasion. It is a different way of removing dead skin from the surface of the skin and can be particularly good for sensitive skin. Hair is first removed from the face and then dry skin.
WHO CAN BENEFIT? This is an excellent treatment for anyone who is pregnant or nursing who wants a deep exfoliation but is not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. It is also a popular option for anyone who has excess “vellus hair” (short, soft hairs on the face). This hair can often cause a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles so removing the hair can give you healthier brighter looking skin and help make-up to sit better on the skin as opposed to sticking to the soft hair.
WILL THE HAIR GROW BACK HEAVIER? No. There is no need to worry about the hair growing back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. As long as the facial hair is superficial hair it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Any hair such as upper lip hair may be waxed or plucked beforehand, or if you do not normally have any form of hair removal on the top lip this area can be missed out.
