Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation of the top layers of skin using a surgical scalpel to remove all dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz).

Dead skin cells make your complexion look dull, and contribute to clogged pores and spots.  Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion.

After your dead skin cells have been gently removed, a luxurious gold collagen and hyaluronic face mask is applied to soothe and calm your skin, leaving you glowing.

It is pain free and does not require any numbing prior to treatment.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Removes vellus hair (peach fuzz)
  • Increases collagen production
  • Allows flawless, blank canvas for make-up application
  • Reduces uneven, dry or rough patches of skin
  • Reduces blemishes
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Allows for deep penetration of skin care products

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

The treatment takes around 45 minutes, and includes a gold collagen and hyaluronic face mask to soothe and calm the skin.

Will My Facial Hair Grow Back Darker?

Not at all. Hair on the face is a type known as vellus 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.

What Happens After The Treatment?

Your skin may be a little pink immediately after the treatment, but this normally subsides within a hour.

You will then notice an increased glow to your skin, an evening of complexion, a reduction in hyperpigmentation, the reduction / absence of vellus hair (peach fuzz), and an overall improvement in your skin tone.

It is amazing!  One of my favourite treatments.

Do I Need a Consultation Before I Can Book a Treatment?

No, you can book a dermaplaning treatment without the need to be seen beforehand!

For all of our first time clients, we do include an initial free professional skin assessment at the time of treatment when you attend the salon for your first ever treatment, so we recommend allowing for that additional time when you book.
