Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure that removes dead skin and facial hair to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and the texture of your skin. Using a round-edged 10 gauge scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dull dead skin cells and the peach fuzz facial hair, leaving the face and neck very smooth. With no dead skin or facial hair to inhibit the penetration of products, you have skin that will absorb products better and allow makeup to glide on smoothly making your make-up flawless and skin brigther.

Who Is It For?

  • Dermaplaning is great for anyone who wants their make-up to look flawless.

  • Dermaplaning is great for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of rosacea, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, as the removal of dead skin brightens the complexion.

  • Dermaplaning is great for those who have suffered from acne, as this treatments will improve the texture of the skin over a period of time.

  • Dermaplaning's removal of hair stops the 'wooly' look and makes the skin baby soft and smooth. As there is no hair remaining, the skin appears brighter and radiant.

Treatment Protocol

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure. Client's are always surprised at how relaxing this facial is.

DermaplaningPro UK have just introduced a new all-organic balm, that is used during the dermaplaning stage of the procedure as it helps the scalpel guide over the skin, removing the hair and skin more easily, especially beneficial to those who have drier skin. A peel and mask can be added taking this treatment up a notch. I use the Teoxane and ClinicCare Professional range of products as these are gentle on the skin and smell absolutely gorgeous. 

How Long Does It Take and What's Involved?

The standard dermaplane takes 40-50 minutes. The protocol for this treatment is double-cleanse, dermaplane, moisturiser, and SPF. The Peel and Mask dermaplane takes from an hour and 10 minutes to an hour and twenty. The treatment protocol is double-cleanse, dermaplane, enzyme peel, hyaluronic acid mask to rehydrate the skin (stays on for 20 minutes), moisturiser, and the essential SPF cream.

 

Are There Side Effects and What’s the Downtime?

There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be quite sensitive to the sun.  I will apply a protective SPF30 cream before you leave my treatment room. Obviously you need to ensure that you continue to apply SPF30 cream or make-up equivalent to reduce the risk of sun damage.

What Can I Expect Following Treatment?

Your skin will feel baby soft with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz hair, your vellous hair, will be gone.

Follow-up Treatments

Dermaplaning removes 21 days-worth of dead skin cells, so it’s necessary to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment. Plan to have this carried out every month.

I trained with Nicola Russell from DermaplanePRO UK and I’m certified to carry out this procedure.
