Benefits at a glace...
- Instant glowing skin
- Smoother, brighter complexion
- Enhanced penetration of skin care
Dermaplaning is the deepest form of manual exfoliation. If you are looking for a smoother and brighter complexion, this safe and simple treatment will do wonders for your skin.
You will begin to see instant results after 1 treatment and the facial can be performed every 4 to 6 weeks. A typical session will take 45 to 60 minutes.
What is Dermaplanning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses an exfoliating sterile blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading.
Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. The overall procedure involves eliminating 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cell buildup along with fine, vellus hair also known as peach fuzz.
Vellus hair (face hair) grows back at its usual rate and patterns of texture, not thicker as it is often assumed.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
The only skin that probably shouldn’t be treated with dermaplaning is acne-prone skin. If the hair is removed and the oil builds up, the glands are blocked and cause more breakouts.
Reason for choosing Dermaplaning
- Helps to remove light surface wrinkling and improves skin texture
- Lightens uneven hyper-pigmented skin for a more even skin tone
- Helps to unblock blackheads, making the pores appear smaller
- Removes facial hair (hair does not grow back thicker)
- Speeds up new healthy cell production and helps smooth acne scarring
Risks and side effects
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.
Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.
What is the aftercare
The skin will be a little pink and dry for a day or so, but that it usually looks its best a few days after dermaplaning.
Application of high-factor SPF, either 30 or 50 is recommended, to protect your skin which is likely to be a little sensitive post-treatment from UV damage.
How often should you book in for a dermaplaning treatment
Dermaplaning can be repeated every 3-4 weeks without any concerns.
