 What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals.

This safe, super exfoliating beauty treatment uses a sterile blade which is stroked across the skin at an angle to gently remove up to 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells from the epidermis and velous hair (peach fuzz).

As with any type of exfoliation treatment, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective.

Benefits

Benefits include healthier plumped skin, reduces appearance of fine lines, large pores, improves sun damage pigmentation, improves acne scarring and improves skin tone. Make up glides on easier for a flawless finish. Dermaplaning reduces milia and minor skin breakouts associated with congested pores.

Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation treatment for clients that have tiny blood vessels near te surface of the skin, sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Due to the contours of the face, certain areas (such as the eyelids) are not treatable using this method.

 

What should you expect during your treatment?

As your aesthetician, we will perform a thorough skin analysis prior to your first dermaplaning.

If dermaplaning is not contraindicated, maximum results are obtained by participating in a series of treatments plus following a home care regimen. We may recommend additional products or changes to your daily home regimen to enhance your treatment and desired outcome.

As your aesthetician, we take every precaution to ensure that your skin is well hydrated and calm following each session. However, you may experience excessive dryness afterwards, which may or may not be normal. Always contact us if you have any concerns. 0151 345 6601

More sensitive skin may experience some redness after the first couple of sessions. This normally goes away after 2 to 3 hours. Dermaplaning may cause minor superficial abrasions which may not appear until a day or two following your treatment. If this should occur, please contact us so that we can do a post-treatment follow up with you.

After your treatment, SPF 30/50 MUST be worn at all times. Tanning beds should never be used. You are making an investment in your skin: therefore, it is to your benefit to continue to protect it long after your series of treatments is completed.

Is satisfaction guaranteed?

The majority of our clients receive noticeable results with a series of treatments and a commitment to a daily skin care regimen. However this outcome cannot be guaranteed as maximum results are highly dependent on age, cumulative sun exposure, health, lifestyle, genetic traits, general skin condition, and willingness to follow recommended protocols.

Be aware that many changes may occur deeper within the skin over time. To continue the maintenance of your skin after you complete your treatment(s), we may inform you of long-term age management programs. Further treatments may be repeated 2 – 6 weeks later.

Containdications

No shaving, peels, waxing or aggressive exfoliations one week prior to dermaplaning treatments. You should wait 7 days after receiving Botox or dermal fillers before recieving your dermaplanining treatment.

 

Post-Treatment/Home Care

Aerobic exercise or vigorous physical activity should be avoided until all redness has subsided. Direct sunlight exposure is to be completely avoided immediately following the treatment (including any strong UV light exposure or tanning beds). Although SPF 30+ should already be a part of your daily skin care, after dermaplaning, SPF 30+ must be applied daily to the treated area for a minimum of two weeks. Twice daily cleanse the treated area with a post-treatment cleanser, followed by a serum or treatment cream and follow with SPF 30+ sunscreen.
