What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment where a surgical blade is used to gently exfoliate
the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as
“peach fuzz”. This procedure is guaranteed to give your skin a more radiant appearance.
Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are
able to penetrate deeper in turn making them more effective.
Dermaplaning can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion,
or, along with them for an enhanced result.
Is Dermaplaning Right for Me?
Dermaplaning is ideal for women of all skin types and colours in their 30’s and beyond who are
interested in improving the health and appearance of their skin. It is a quick procedure with few to
no adverse effects. Dermaplaning is an alternative to chemical peels and is a good choice for anyone
who has fine facial hair (peach fuzz), extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea.
Will it make the hair on my face grow back thicker and darker?
No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; Vellus hair and Terminal hair.
Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.
Is the treatment safe?
This treatment is extremely safe when performed by a skilled trained aesthetician. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs.
There is also no downtime associated with this procedure. Here at Alexia Makeup • Hair • Beauty we analyse all skins and we will advise you the benefits of other treatments to promote healthy skin. Our Dermaplaning treatment is part of our 'Skin Health' bespoke treatment plans.
Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?
Dermaplaning is painless yet very effective, a gentle stretching and scraping motion is used to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair. There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes can heal up within 24-48 hours.
How long is the treatment? How often can I have it done?
Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 45-60 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment. It can take longer if we incorporate enzymes, masks, infusions, and LED light therapy. Your aesthetician will help you determine the right combination for your skin.
