Dermaplaning

£40 basic facial (no mask)

£55 Royal facial (choose a mask or LED light mask)

Dermaplaning has become a highly sought after skin treatment, due to its ability to reveal healthy, smooth skin for a glowing facial appearance. The procedure is considered a safe method of exfoliating the skin and removing fine vellus hair – also called peach fuzz.

The treatment is performed using a scalpel that is gently swept across the skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and fine hair. It can address a variety of cosmetic concerns, ranging from dry skin and fine hair to hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. The process is relatively quick, with most patients having their entire face treated in about 30 to 45 minutes. Removing the barrier of dead skin and vellus hair allows our high – performing mask to penetrate at a much deeper level giving amazing results.

Your skin will be left glowing, and it also leaves a beautiful base for your makeup!

It proves to be a viable option for many individuals, but it is especially beneficial for pregnant or nursing patients who wish to revive a dull, dry complexion. The treatment offers deep exfoliation without the potentially harmful peeling agents that can enter the bloodstream and be transferred to the baby.

Since the process only addresses the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis), there is typically no downtime or side effects. Although many people are concerned that their hair will grow back darker and thicker, this is not true. Since the hair being shed is vellus hair, it grows back exactly as it was before.

 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is performed by our trained therapists. The treatment is a simple and safe procedure for selectively removing the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant and stimulating a production of new collagen and refreshed skin cells. In addition to exfoliating the skin, it removes the fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).

How is dermaplaning performed?

The therapist uses a surgical blade and a delicate touch to effectively abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.

Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is beneficial for clients with rough, dry skin; superficial hyper pigmentation; mild acne scarring and those with fine lines and wrinkles. Removing the epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.

If the fine hair on the face is removed, will it grow back thicker?

Vellus hair generally grows back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment, so the answer is no! We recommend that if you remove upper lip hair currently that you do so 48 hours prior to your treatment.

Is the treatment safe?

This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an adequately trained therapist. There is no more risk to the skin than when a man shaves his face. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.

What skin types/conditions should not be treated?

We do not recommend this treatment for those suffering from active acne and an overproduction of the sebaceous gland. The oils from the sebaceous gland need to travel up and connect with the vellus hair. If the hair is removed, then the oils tend to stay below where they are prone to mix with bacterial colonies, ultimately stimulating more acne.
