Dermaplaning

dermaplane. face shaving facial. remove facial hair

Dermaplaning is quickly gaining in popularity and is a safe effective treatment to exfoliate the skin and remove all the fine vellus hairs.  Dermaplaning uses a medical scalpel blade to remove excessive dead skin build up and peach fuzz (vellus hairs).  The skin is left soft, smooth and hydrated with a youthful glow.

 

Dermaplaning is painless and requires no downtime.  It is safe for all skin types and can benefit skins with blackheads and minor imperfections. For best results we recommend treatments at 4-6 weekly intervals - depending on your hair growth cycle, this will keep the skin looking smooth and bright. 

 

Frequently asked questions

No - this is a misconception vellus hair does not change into terminal hair.

Solar keratosis (medical clearance required), blackheads, the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation, and of course fine lines.

 

Can I wear makeup after Dermaplaning?

I have a special event coming up, when should I book my Dermaplaning treatment?

At least 3 days prior to the event, so that your skin has settled down.

Will I still be able to use my skincare?

Yes, although avoid products with active ingredients for 72 hours after Dermaplaning.  You can expect deeper product penetration for serums and creams as an added bonus.
