Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation that dates back to the time of Cleopatra and is now a firm celebrity favourite. This non-invasive aesthetic facial treatment addresses a number of skincare concerns, as well as the signs of ageing leaving the skin looking vibrant and healthy. It removes fine vellus hairs and dead skin cells and creates an even surface free from sebum and excess keratin to prime it to better absorb skincare products as well as forming the perfect base for make-up.
What does a Essential Dermaplaning involve?
After a consultation and skin analysis, we will begin to double cleanse your face and neck to get it ready for treatment. we then tone your skin to balance and make sure your skin is completely clear. Depending on your skin type, we may have to perform a balm or decrease application.
The Dermaplane treatment itself uses a single blade scalpel that gently removes loose and keratinised dead cells from the top layer of the skin. This encourages the shedding of cells and actively stimulates circulation, increasing the delivery of oxygen to the cells. Once this is complete, we will apply a serum tailored to you as the treatment increases the skin’s ability to absorb such products. To complete the treatment, we will also apply a moisturising SPF product to help to protect your skin immediately after your appointment.

How does it work?
By removing the dead cells and vellus hair that can trap unwanted sebum and dirt, your skin will glow with health, freshness and clarity. It also stimulates the natural processes within the skin, to keep it looking fabulous for longer.
How long will it take/last?
The appointment lasts for around 30 minutes and we recommend that you repeat it on a monthly basis to maintain the best results.
Is there any downtime?
This treatment is so popular because there is no downtime. You may experience some redness for a couple of hours after the treatment due to the circulation being enhanced, but this should soon disappear.
Is it suitable for my skin type?
Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types as it is gentle and far less invasive than many other treatments. It is particularly suitable for those who suffer from conditions such as Rosacea, Telangiectasia, or are prone to skin sensitivity.
