Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that exfoliates the epidermis while removing vellus hair.
Treatment is completed by gently gliding a stainless steel scapel blade across the skin. This removes any keratinized cells and 'peach fuzz'.
The treatment helps to smooth scarring, reduce uneven skin tone and minimise fine lines and wrinkles. Removing vellus hair reduces the build up of debris and oils in the follicle and gives the skin a healthier look.
By reducing the hair and excess debris from the skin, skincare products can penetrate better. The face may appear red for a few hours after treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Treatments can be performed at monthly intervals. It is important not to have this regularly as it will take away the protection that the skin needs.
Most people are suitable for treatment. There may be certain medical conditions that may mean someone is not suitable, however, a consultation will be carried out prior to treatment.
