Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layer of the skin called the Stratum Corneum which causes skin to become dull, dry and aged. The procedure will improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, dark spots and make the skin’s surface feel softer and smoother. Skin appears more youthful with an instant glow.
Dermaplaning is safe, with very little risk of side effects when performed by a trained and certified Somatologist.
This procedure doesn’t require any recovery downtime, which makes it extremely convenient.
A manual exfoliating blade is used at a 45 degree angle to skim dead skin cells and fine hair from the face. It’s also called micro-planing or -blading.
Dermaplaning aims to make the skin’s surface smooth, youthful and radiant. This treatment removes “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on the face leaving behind a soft smooth texture.
The procedure lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes, as your therapist gently works to exfoliate the skin.
Are there any risks involved?
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness on the face shortly after treatment. By following the recommended proper home-care regime, the skin’s reaction to the extra sebum secretion will normalise. This secretion is the skin’s own protection mechanism.
After-care is very important as your skin is always exposed to dust, bacteria and sunlight. By using our recommended Moisturiser together with Sunscreen, the skin will be protected from UV rays and other influences.
Dermaplaning is suitable for any skin type and is highly recommended for anyone with the following concerns:
