What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is fast becoming the most popular non surgical facial procedure in Perth. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation of the skin.
Treatment is performed using a sterile surgical blade to gently exfoliate the skin. It removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, along with fine facial hair commonly know as 'peach fuzz' or vellus hair. The treatment removes the hair gently and safely without stimulating hair growth.
Dermaplaning provides a safe and effective facial exfoliation treatment. Some of the key benefits include:
- Improves skin texture
- Instantly lightens and brightens the skin
- Evens out skin tone
- Reduces the appearance of blackheads and enlarged pores
- Smooths the appearance of acne scarring
- Smooths the appearance of fine lines
- Promotes healthy, glowing skin
- Makeup glides on more naturally and smoothly
- Little to no downtime
Dermaplaning removes 'peach fuzz' also know as Vellus hair. You can not change the structure of the hair follicle by simply shaving the hair off at the skins surface. Hair will grow back in about 3-4 weeks but it does not grow back thicker or any darker. We avoid the upper lip as this is a hormonal area and the hair can grow back spikey. Instead we remove the hair with a gentle wax, this is included in the cost of your treatment.
Who is Dermaplaning suitable for?
Suitable for most skin types. This treatment is not ideal for clients with hypersensitive skin, skin conditions like Rosacea or significant skin concerns like extensive wrinkling, age spots or sun damage, which are often better addressed by a more intensive treatment.
Dermaplaning is also an option for acne-prone skin, providing the acne is not active at the time of the treatment.
Dermaplaning is not suitable for clients who present with any of the following conditions:
- Active acne
- Bleeding disorders
- Skin cancers, cold sores/herpes, keloid scarring or eczema
- Seborrhoeic keratosis or seborrhoeic hyperplasia
- Certain medications such as accutane
Is there any downtime?
There is little to no downtime after treatment. Your skin may be slightly red, tight or tingly straight after treatment but this will usually subside within a few hours. Some clients may experience dryness in the days following treatment, this is due to cellular turnover. We recommend you moisturise to keep your skin hydrated. Avoid direct sunlight for at least 72 hours. Wearing a SPF30+ is an essential part of post treatment care.
This treatment is also available in combination with other treatments. Refer pricing menu for available treatment options.
