What is dermaplaning?

Well, this incredibly popular facial treatment provides deep exfoliation and skin transformation. It involves a highly trained professional aesthetic practitioner (like us!) using a small surgical scalpel to gently shave off the top layers of the skin. This process removes dead skin cells, and villus hair (peach fuzz), to leave your skin looking fresh and radiant, while feeling smooth and soft. This can help improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring too.

Frequently asked dermaplaning questions.

Dermaplaning is a perfectly safe procedure when implemented by a professional. As such, there should not be any side effects at all. The only exceptions to this are people with very sensitive or reactive skin, including rosacea or keratosis pilaris, or those with inflamed acne. In these circumstances, dermaplaning should be avoided as it will likely cause a lot of irritation.

Dermaplaning doesn’t cause acne breakouts. Instead, dermaplaning removes all the dead cells and skin that has built up on the surface of your skin, and this can actually help to reduce any acne and exfoliate your skin.

It might be a little scary to think of a scalpel so close to your face, but actually dermaplaning doesn’t hurt. It’s just like shaving any other body part, and in the hands of a professional, you shouldn’t fee any pain at all, just a gentle scratching sensation.

The dermaplaning procedure is a short and sweet treatment option that is often used as a precursor to prepare your skin for further procedures. You can easily have a dermaplaning treatment on your lunch break, and then carry on with your day. However, you should hold off on reapplying make up straight away, if you can, as your skin can be a little more sensitive, and become irritated.

This is one of the questions we are asked most frequently, but we can assure you that your hair will not grow back any faster, or any thicker than it was before.
