WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a physical/mechanical exfoliation that is performed using a sterile medical-grade surgical blade. This treatment immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous hair. It is highly effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. It is great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment to prepare for high profile occasions.
Benefits of Dermapling include the following
✔️Improvement of fine lines and wrinkles
✔️Improvement of acne scars
✔️Vellous facial hair removal
✔️Improvement of skin texture

What is the pre- and post- care?
Before the treatment ensure no botox and filler treatments at least 1 week prior, no Retin-A products have been used at least 5 days prior and no harsh treatments such as chemical peels or IPL at least 14 days before treatment. If you are prone to Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation you must pretreat your skin with a melanin suppressant for 2 weeks prior to treatment - please ask your facialist for more information.
After the treatment do not use products containing Benzoyl Peroxide, Retin-A, Salicylic acid or any other harsh ingredients, avoid excessive heat on the skin hours e.g. hot baths, showers and saunas and avoid heavy workouts for 24-48 hours, do not exfoliate the area or use abrasive wash cloths for 24-48 hours. Your skin will be more susceptible to UV rays after treatment so avoid sun exposure and wear SPF 50+ sunscreen even on cloudy days. Makeup, dirty facial tools e.g. brushes and fragrances may irritate the skin and cause contact dermatitis. Wait 7 days before waxing.
