Dermaplaning is a safe method of physical exfoliation using a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently shave the skin's surface. It removes the top-most layer of dead skin plus any dirt and oil build-up in the hair follicles, along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). This painless procedure leaves the skin more silky-smooth than other exfoliation techniques due to the hair removal process.
A Dermaplane Facial also reduces the appearance of acne scars and diminishes the look of fine lines. It has been used for many years but, more recently, it has become the must-have celebrity treatment!
The Deluxe Dermaplane Facial
40 mins £65
A full and thorough consultation is carried out before your treatment begins. Your facial will include a gentle foam cleanse, this is to remove surface impurities and make-up and also to help regulate the PH levels in the skin. An Enzyme exfoliating peel is applied to the nose & decollete to dissolve dead skin cells and refine the skin.
Once the skin is clean and free from impurities the Dermaplane exfoliation is carried out. Following the procedure, you will experience 10 minutes under our super-powered Dermalux Tri-wave MD LED lamp which boosts collagen eliminates bacteria and calms the skin. Following this, you will be drenched in SPF50 moisturiser to keep those nasty UVA/UVB rays at bay for post-procedure protection.
It's really important to remember that, after a Dermaplane facial, your skin will be much more sensitive to the sun's UV rays and other environmental factors. While this is true of any facial, this is especially important after having a Dermaplane facial as a deeper level of exfoliation has occurred. Ensure you are using SPF protection on your face immediately after the procedure and reapply it often to keep your skin radiant and healthy.
Is a Dermaplane Facial for me?
A Dermaplane facial is appropriate for all ages and for most skin types. However, this treatment may not be right for you if you have deep cystic acne or sensitive skin. If you do have acne, wait until breakouts are clear. We always carry out a full consultation before treatment so we can advise on the right steps for you.
Please note that if you have sensitive skin, a Dermaplane Facial will remove 21 days’ worth of dead skin cells. So, your skin will be more sensitive post-treatment. It is also worth noting that Dermaplaning is only meant for the face, not the nose, neck, or chest.
