Dermaplaning is a very effective and painless exfoliation procedure that can be carried out and performed quickly with minimal skin irritation. The procedure is carried out to remove dead skins cells and the very fine ‘vellus’ hair which is more commonly known as peach fuzz. After the procedure is complete, your skin is left feeling smoother as the dead skin cells and the fine hair have been eliminated. A dermaplaning procedure can be carried out as either a standalone procedure or as a method to prepare the skin for other facial treatments.
The treatment is carried out by one of our practitioners who will use a specialised sharp blade, positioned at a 45° angle to the skin, to gently sweep across the surface of the skin. This sweeping action removes the dead skin cells in the upper layers of the skin as these are often nearing the end of the skins natural cycle of regeneration, giving your skin a youthful and brighter appearance.
