Dermaplaning
About:

Dermaplaning is a very popular and safe facial treatment manualing removing dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This treatment uses a blade to skim dead skin cells and vellus hairs from your face. 

Our skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants and sun damage causing the skin to appear dull and aged. Dermaplaning removes these skin cells leaving the skin looking brighter, smoother and more radiant with an instant glow.

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

This is a great treatment to prepare the sin for resurfacing treatment such as chemical peels. 

Pre-treatment advice

  • Avoid the use of retinoids, aha’s, and harsh skincare that may cause irritation to the skin for approx 1 week.

  • No sunbeds for at least one week 

  • Do not slim in chlorinated water for 1 week

  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, and electrolysis for 36 hours

  • No excessive exercise immediately after

  • Makeup can be applied, minium is recommended

  • The skin may feel drier or tighter – this is normal. Use extra moisturiser

  • Take direct advice if undergoing laser or IPL treatment 

  • Use SPF

 

Please be aware of all facial treatments your skin can go through a phase of skin purging. This means some products contain active ingredients that speed up your skin's exfoliation rate (cellular turnover). This can feed existing spots below the surface causing a once-off purge. It's your skin kicking out the dirt that was hiding in your skin. In other words, the pimple would have appeared anyway. Purging made them show up faster. Once the purge is over, the breakout will be gone. This only happens to a very small amount of people.
