What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning, also known as epidermal levelling or blading, is a gentle yet effective exfoliation technique that helps to improve the skins texture and tone. Using a skilled blading action and a sterile single-use blade, the dead skin cell layer is removed along with the soft vellus facial hair, leaving the skin feeling unbelievably soft with improved texture and clarity. Additional features are collagen stimulation, deeper product penetration for enhanced hydration, and a smoother makeup application.

A fantastic pick-me-up and great for a special occasion. Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Great for blonde facial hair that is not able to be treated by laser.

For the ultimate results, combine this treatment with a treatment booster such as a light lactic peel, clearglow laser, LED light therapy or hyaluronic acid peptide mask.

Dermaplaning FAQs

How does this compare to microdermabrasion?

Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are both exfoliating skin treatments that provide outstanding results. Dermaplaning use a sharp, sterile blade’s edge to remove the build-up of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, while microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped exfoliation handpiece with vacuum suction to remove dead skin cells and debris. While microdermabrasion is not recommended for clients who experience increased vascularity, perisistent erythema (redness) or have sensitive skins, dermaplaning is a great alternative.

Will my hair grow back differently?

As there is no disruption to the hairs blood supply, your hair will not grow back any thicker or darker after your treatment. After you have had your treatment, your skin will appear brighter and more even than what you are used to, so when the facial hair grows back after a few weeks, it may seem as though the hair is darker or thicker, even when it isn’t.

Is there any risks involved with dermaplaning?

While dermaplaning is a low-risk treatment, some side effects can include mild pinkness in your skin in the few hours following treatment. Due to the nature of the treatment, there is a risk of mild cuts and abrasions. These usually heal up in 24-48 hours, are very superficial and have a low risk of scarring. Some clients may also develop mild congestion of whiteheads in the days following their treatment.
