What is Dermaplaning, also known as Microblading?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin ( Stratum Corneum ). The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles, surface blemishes and “peach fluff” know as Vellus hair, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth.
Is it a safe procedure?
Yes, it is! We double cleanse the skin, use a new surgical blade and gloves for each client insuring no harm or cross-infection.
Who is qualified to do this procedure?
Only a qualified Dermatologist and Somatologist may perform this treatment on clients.
Is it suitable for all skin types?
Yes, it is suitable for all skin types even for skins with conditions such as sun-damage, dry skin, fine lines and post pascal scaring.
Why do I need Dermaplaning?
Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
Explain the procedure?
First, you will lay down on a sanitized, disposable clothed bed in a private floor heat room
Your Therapist will then double cleanse and tone the skin before starting the procedure, this is to clean out all dirt and bacteria that might have been on the surface of the skin and to disinfect it.
Your Therapist will then apply gloves onto her sanitized hands, show you a newly open sculpting blade and begin to manually Dermaplan/sculpt over the skin in a 45-degree angle.
After the treatment is completed, your Therapist will soothe your skin with Rose water, balance your Ph with a spritzer, apply suited mask for client’s skin and moisturise the skin. We will also apply SPF to protect your skin after the treatment is completed.
Is it painful?
No, not at all. During a Dermaplaning procedure, you should not feel any pain. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment due to the Therapist is working directly onto the skin.
Is there any downtime?
One amazing fact about Dermaplaning is that it has no down time. In other words, can visit us during a lunch break have your treatment done and go on with your day as usual.
How often should one have a Dermaplaning session?
While your Therapist will help you determine how often you should undergo treatment, you should at least wait three or four weeks in between sessions. Dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation, removing two or three weeks’ worth of dead skin. Give your skin time to resurface in between treatments.
How will my skin look and feel after the procedure?
Skin will immediately have a natural glow with visible results. Skin will be smooth and look rejuvenated. Eyebrows would have been shaped and no peach fuzz on the upper lip, which means no need for waxing! Skin will be slightly sensitive due to the treatment; this will only be for a few hours before the skin normalises. Some experience a “sun burnt “feeling the next day or tight sensation.
What skin protocol must I follow after the treatment?
The client will need to make sure that they cleanse and moisturise well, as we had work on the barrier layer (protective layer) of the skin. One will need to avoid direct sun exposure in the week after your appointment, as sun damage, such as a sunburn, could compromise your skin and make the treatment painful. This can also create pigmentation and damage melanocytes in the skin if not looked after.
What skincare products should I use to maintain the result of Dermaplaning?
Maintenance would be a good cleanser/wash depending on client’s skin. A moisturiser with good active and nourishing ingredients. Most important a good sun protector factor, best would be a SPF25 and above for a full coverage. If one does not have any of these products or needs products that would suit your skin condition, ask your Therapist for advice.
