What is Dermaplaning ?

  • A safe and effective manual exfoliation procedure.

  • It is carried out using a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently shave the skins surface, removing the outer most layers as well as the "peach fuzz" vellus hair.

  • This leaves the skin visibly smoother with an instant glow.

How does it work?

  • Similar procedure to microdermabrasion, 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells are removed.

  • Manual exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to penetrate the skin better.

  • Removing the face of vellus hair also improves skin that can often accumulate dirt and oil, giving you a deep clean.

  • Dermaplaning is only a superficial treatment, epidermal level.

Will the Vellus hair turn into terminal (thicker) hair ?

  • No, dermaplaining is simply removing the hair at the skins surface, although it may feel thicker initally when it starts to grow, this is due to the blunt tip of the hair and it will then return to normal.

This treatment does not require any chemicals therefore it is safe for pregnant and breast feeding mothers have.  This treatment is highly effective for those who have dry or rough skin texture. Mature skin, which often has a build up of dead skin cells and slower skin cell turnover. Dermaplaining is also non inflammatory therefore is suitable for those with pigmentation.
