What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a very effective, non-invasive exfoliating facial making the face feel smooth and very clean. A round edged scalpel, specially manufactured for dermaplaning, is angled skilfully to glide over the skin to remove both dead skin build-up and fine facial hair. This process ultimately exfoliates, brightens and smooths the skin. It does sound a bit scary, but it is actually very soothing!
Who Can Have This Facial?
Dermaplaning is great for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin. A Dermaplane is a great exfoliating facial for both women and men. Even pregnant, and nursing, women can have this non-invasive treatment as it’s so gentle.
This treatment can be performed on all skin types.
Why Would I Want Dermaplaning?
Dead skin on the face and neck can make your complexion look grey and dull. This is because dead skin cells build up on the face. Quite a number of layers of dead skin in fact over the month, before each layer eventually sloths away. These layers of dead skin don’t lay completely flat and that is why when you run your hand over your face, it can feel rough, dry and sometimes oily in places. Your skin can look dull and in desperate need of deep exfoliation and hydration.
Dermaplaning removes the build-up of dead skin making the skin bright and fine lines less defined. With the removal of hair, there is nowhere for acne-causing bacteria to lay on the skin, so skin has fewer outbreaks. The removal of both dead skin and hair reveals brighter, smoother and very clean skin. Your face will feel amazingly soft and smooth after a dermaplaning treatment.
Also the fine hairs on your face are like dirt and oil magnets. The sebum produced is your skin’s worst enemy. Removing facial hair means there is nothing for sebum to cling to. No sebum means the acne-causing bacteria can’t grow on the skin. Acne and breakouts are reduced as long as a good home-care skin regime is followed.
Removing both the dead skin and hair instantly exfoliates the skin like no other facial. Wrinkles are diminished, as the dead skin cells and dirt are removed. Your skin will actually feel clean. It will look brighter and smoother. It’s such a nice feeling that clients are happy to not wear makeup straight after treatment as they like the clean feeling this facial gives.
Depending on the facial you select, this facial is very relaxing and a great stress-buster. Check out the different facials available.
