Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An esthetician grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently ‘shave off’ dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.
As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores.
Fast, affordable and no downtime make this the perfect treatment.
This unique approach removes dead skin cells and vellus hair revealing newer, younger skin.
Dermaplaning also stimulates the production of fresh; young skin cells, while helping your skin to breath easier. Active ingredients in skin care products can penetrate into the deeper layers resulting in healthier skin.
Treatments are gentle and take very little time so is ideal for your busy lifestyle. With no downtime, you’ll return to the activities of everyday life straight away.

Dermaplaning is a safe procedure. Skin is stretched during the procedure and the blade is always held at a 45-degree angle to reduce the risk of nicking the skin with the blade. If you have dry patches of skin, a small amount of serum is applied to enable the blade to glide across the skin smoothly.
Skin may be a little pink immediately after treatment due to the skin being stretched but this normally subsides within an hour or so.
Peach fuzz/vellus hairs do not come back thicker and stronger. It will grow back at exactly the same rate, thickness and texture as before.
Dermaplaning treatment can be carried out every 4-6 weeks and removal of peach fuzz/vellus hair and dead skin can be achieved with a single treatment. By removing the build up of hair, oils, dirt and dry skin it increases penetration of product and complementary therapies meaning quick, better results.
