What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a gentle form of manual exfoliation of the skin, we love this treatment and think it is the most effective exfoliating method. Dead skin cells are gently yet effectively removed from the face and neck which helps rid of impurities and debris layering on the skin clogging pores. Without the layer of dead skin cells getting in the way, it's easier for treatments and serums to penetrate your skin, this will help enhance the products you use post treatment.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
Reducing the appearance of fine lines, evening skin tone and helping with the reduction of milia, blackheads, whiteheads and congestion associated with breakouts. A unique benefit of dermaplaning is the temporary removal of vellus hair, this is the tiny fine hair found on the face and neck. The hair will grow back exactly the same colour and thickness as it was previously - because you are removing the dead layer of skin and vellus hair, your skin will appear much brighter than you've experienced past. It is a Healthy way to exfoliate and cleanse skin with no downtime.
How is Dermaplaning performed?
Using a handheld dermatome and a surgical blade which gently scrapes over the skin, this treatment is completely painless and non-invasive.
I have acne, can I still get this treatment?
If you suffer from acne skin - dermaplane is not recommended as acne begins in the hair follicle and when the hair is removed it can aggravate or stimulate more acne breakouts. Please speak to us for other treatments that may help you.

The face is then deep cleansed with water peeling sequential acids, using a vacuum handpiece, infusing the skin with mandelic acid. Mandelic acid is an anti-ageing ingredient, working to accelerate cell turnover by dissolving the tiny bonds that hold skin cells together, helping to remove dead skin on the surface that can lead to dull complexions.
Salicylic Acid is used in the same way, the aspirating handpiece will infuse the skin with Salicylic Acid, extracting oil, dead skin and dirt along the way. This is performed on the on the T-Zone , mainly concentrating on areas of concern. It penetrates deep in the pores and dissolves the bonds between surface skin cells. It’s this process that unclogs pores, helping in the fight against blemishes and breakouts. It can also help reduce sebum secretion by cleaning stubborn oil & dirt deep from within the pore.
The 3rd infusion is Hyaluronic Acid , the key ingredient to aid the skin in hydration. This is done using the infusion handpiece, HA is infused into the skin, creating a plumping effect.

Some clients find the procedure a little uncomfortable while others report no discomfort at all, to ensure you are comfortable we can use a numbing cream prior to the procedure. The area can be a little sore for the first few hours and tender to touch for a couple days.
How long is the recovery or healing time?
