How Does It Work?
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous facial hair – also known as “peach fuzz.”
If you look at the tool used for these treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair.
The basic concept is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across the skin, it removes dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.
Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged.
Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror. In technical terms, this is what is responsible for the removal of keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine vellous hair!
As a result of this process, it means that dermaplaning is also a highly effective procedure for minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving the skin smooth, supple and vibrant.
Are There Any Side-Effects?
Dermaplaning is essentially a low-risk procedure, however 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 your treatment. Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they can occur in rare instances. If you have any worries following your procedure, our experts will always be on hand to put your mind at rest.
Will My Hair Grow Back Thicker/Darker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellous hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks.
How Often Can This Procedure Be Performed?
The procedure can be performed every 3-4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.
Does It Hurt?
It is extremely safe and requires no downtime or recovery time after the procedure. In fact, it leaves your skin healthier and more radiant in appearance and many of our clients find it as relaxing as it is effective.
