Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive procedure that shaves away the top layers of your skin. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars or pitted skin. Some people get dermaplaning to remove unwanted hair.

This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. By removing that dead layer and hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.

Sophie Dickens, our experienced clinic nurse, will be carrying  dermaplaning treatments. You can book in on line with her here. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and can be combined with others.

Dermaplaning FAQs

Does dermaplaning hurt?

No, skin is held taut by your therapist and you will feel a mild “scraping” of the skin, some clients find this relaxing! The only discomfort you may feel is the therapist applying a small amount of pressure to hold the skin taut.

Are there any side effects?

There is no downtime with this treatment.

You may have some redness for 2-3 hours after the treatment, but this will subside if the recommended aftercare is followed

How often can I have a treatment?

Treatments are recommended every 3-4 weeks.

You can combine this treatment with other skin boosting treatments e.g. mask, peels.

Will my hair grow back stronger/thicker?

No, the very fine vellus hairs will eventually grow back exactly how they were. This applies to hormonal (lip/chin) hair. It does not grow back thicker or more frequently.
