Dermaplaning. Every Question Answered

Dermaplaning is a skincare treatment that uses a sterile surgical instrument. It immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair.

What makes Dermaplaning so good?

It is highly effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars It leaves skin smooth, supple and vibrant. It’s great for prepping the skin prior to peels and enzyme treatments. It helps to increase penetration of active ingredients in professional and home care products. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment for high profile occasions.

Is Dermaplaning safe?

Dermaplaning is a physical/mechanical exfoliation that is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained skincare specialist utilising the appropriate tools for the service.

Which areas are suitable for treatment?

Dermaplaning is suitable for facial treatment.

How often can you have a treatment?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. The treatment actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. I usually allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days before repeating the treatment.

Can Dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?

Yes. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to prep the skin for a chemical peel.

Are all skin types suitable?

All skin types can benefit from this treatment. Men can be dermaplaned however beard areas are avoided.

What about acne?

Clients with active acne outbreaks should wait for them to heal. A course of Lightfusion is recommended first to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria and encourage healing. This is a great for diminishing acne scars (when combined with a peel).

Is the treatment suitable for everyone?

  • Those clients with bleeding disorders of difficultly clotting.
  • Anyone with diabetes not under control by diet or medication.
  • Those undergoing cancer treatment.

Is it painful?

Clients love this treatment…

Charlotte was very thorough in explaining the technique prior to the treatment to ensure I felt comfortable, relaxed and knew what to expect. As always, Charlotte outlined the different stages of the treatment to ensure my skin was clean and prepared for the treatment. She explained the treatment used after the dermaplaning so I understood the benefits.

Dermaplaning didn’t hurt at all. The whole treatment took roughly an hour which was great and I could instantly see the glow in my skin. The redness from the treatment went down within an hour or two, but the effects of the dermaplaning are still visible nearly 2 weeks later.

Charlotte ensured that I understood how to treat my skin for the 48 hours following dermaplaning. As always she followed up with me in the following days and week after the treatment. She made sure I was a happy client and I am!
