Dermaplaning delivers advanced levels of exfoliation to the skin, as well as removing the fine hairs that cover the skin’s surface, also known as ‘peach fuzz’.
Alternatively referred to as ‘microplaning’ or ‘blading’, this treatment removes the top layer of the skin to produce a smooth surface, as well as helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring.
Lifestyle habits, combined with environmental conditions, can affect the skin’s appearance. Over time, these contributors can lead to skin that is dull and dry, with lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and sun damage leaving their mark. The complexion can appear less vibrant, tired and older than the affected person wishes it to be.
Dermaplaning uses a similar concept to that of traditional shaving, but without the risk of thicker hair growing back. When moved slowly across the face, the dermaplane tool can remove scar tissue, debris and dead skin cells; before a serum containing soothing aloe is applied, relieving the skin of any irritation, evening the texture of the skin.
New, healthier skin cells are allowed to regrow, resulting in a complexion that feels softer and looks clearer and more balanced.
The results that can be expected through dermaplaning are unique to the individual, and the extent to which the affecting conditions present. An immediate improvement can be seen in some patients, with results developing further over the few days that follow the procedure. A careful regular routine of daily exfoliation and cleansing can help to keep the skin healthy, but following up with recommended maintenance procedures can help to ensure optimum outcomes.Book a Consultation
