What Is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion leaving skin ultra-smooth and perfectly prepped for make-up, so it takes on an “airbrushed” finish.

How Dermaplaning Works

During dermaplaning an extremely fine, surgical-grade blade is used to gently exfoliate the epidermis, it also removes fine vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) to reveal a smooth, vibrant, perfect complexion which creates clear channels into the skin as well as a soft, smooth surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly.

Dead skin cells make your complexion look dull and contribute to clogged pores and spots. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get down into the skin where they need to be rather than sitting on the skin’s surface.

What To Expect From Dermaplaning

You'll feel the sensation of the blade crossing your skin, which is similar to the way shaving with a razor feels. You may also hear a whispering sound as the scalpel blade crosses the top layer of your skin. But you won't feel any discomfort, and your skin will never be pierced.

Who Is Dermaplaning Suitable For

This treatment is perfect for anyone's complexion that is noticeably dry, dull or aged, or if peach fuzz facial hair gets in the way of a smooth and perfect looking skin. If you suffer from a build-up of dead skin cells make imperfections and fine lines look more pronounced. Or whether you are looking for a way to gently and effectively remove the top layer of your skin to reveal the smooth, undamaged face beneath.

Key Benefits

1. Removes dead skin cells.

A build up of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause pimples but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin, which is why exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.

2. Enables better penetration for Active ingredients in the skin .

Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get penetrate deeper into the skin rather than sitting on the skin’s surface.

3. Immediate results. 

4. Application of makeup is flawless and photo finish look is achieved!

A brighter, fresher and more youthful appearance is revealed. No more peach fuzz.

Please find answers to the most common questions below.

What happens during dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is done with a sterile micro-blade held at a 45-degree angle and brushed along the surface of the skin to remove thin layers of excess skin cells and fine hairs. This is then followed by a skin-soothing balm or oil, or with our deluxe treatment, a mild skin stimulation peel for extra exfoliation. The treatment is painless and does not require any numbing prior to treatment.

Will my facial hair grow back darker?

Not at all. Hair on the face is a type known as villous hair, rather than the dark, thick terminal hair that grows elsewhere. Shaving does not in any way cause vellus hair follicles to transform into terminal hair follicles.

Is there any downtime after a dermaplaning treatment?

Some light redness can be expected but not always. It’s perfectly fine and common to make an appointment during lunch and go right back to work after the treatment.

How often do I need dermaplaning treatments?

Since this is a deeply exfoliating treatment, we recommend waiting at least a month between appointments, although some patients with sensitive skin can limit their treatments to even once a season.

Repeat treatments are recommended when you see your peach fuzz return, usually after approximately one month.

Can you wear makeup after dermaplaning?

Try to avoid a ‘full’ makeup immediately after your dermaplaning treatment and let the skin breathe for the rest of the day.

If you need to wear makeup, you can, but your skin barrier is more open and may become irritated. Once your skin has had time to settle (24 hours), proceed with your make-up as normal.

Who should avoid dermaplaning?

While dermaplaning is considered to be an effective treatment for many skin conditions, it is important to avoid it if you’re currently taking retinoid medications, since these treatments may cause undue irritation and discomfort during the dermaplaning procedure. Dermaplaning should be delayed by three to four days if you’ve recently tanned or used any exfoliating scrubs to allow your skin time to heal. Highly sensitive skin (eg. Rosacea or keratosis) may find the treatment irritates your skin.

We cannot dermaplane someone who is highly sensitive, has pustular or active rosacea, acne, thick dark (terminal) hair, pregnant and diabetic clients.

Please stop using exfoliants 48 hours prior to the treatment: AHA acids, Benzoyl peroxide, Retinols and tretinoin, Enzymes, Azelaic acid and Adapelene

Will dermaplaning cause breakouts?

Quite the opposite, actually. A buildup of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause pimples but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin, which is why exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow. But, if you already have an existing breakout, you will need to wait until it clears up.
