Dermaplaning can be described as the deepest form of manual exfoliation. The procedure requires gently scraping off the top layer of skin on the face using a surgical scalpel. This removes any dead skin and peach fuzz, which leaves your skin looking instantly smoother.
Though a surgical scalpel sounds somewhat unnerving, we can assure you it is not a painful treatment, most clients are surprised as to how gentle it is. The skin is held taut and the scalpel is gently scraped across the face lifting off the top layer of dead skin cells and any smalls hair growing from the face.
There is almost no downtime, which makes this the perfect treatment for anyone with a busy life or looking to be pampered during their lunch break. After treatment, the skin is instantly more radiant, even and smooth which results in make-up being applied easier.
As dermaplaning removes the top layer of the skin, clients can find that their skin is more sensitive, especially in the sun. Therefore, it is vital to wear an SPF 30+ after treatment to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning can be used across all skin types however people who have super sensitive skin, severe rosacea or inflamed acne should avoid the treatment.
