Dermaplaning is an effective procedure involving the use of a surgical blade. It is a fast and painless treatment where dead skin is removed from the epidermis as well as vellus hair (peach fuzz). An optional bionic oxygen recovery face mask may then applied which helps decrease redness and calm the skin. The mask delivers molecular oxygen – known for its wound-healing properties – into the skin, along with a bionic polyhydroxy acid blend, helping revitalise skin, increase cellular energy and optimise collagen levels.
Dermaplaning may be done as a standalone treatment or to enhance another facial treatment. Benefits of this treatment may include reduction of:
Mild acne scarring
Lines and wrinkles
Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment for clients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a build up of dirt and oils in the follicles. The removal of this hair gives healthier looking skin. Clients are often concerned that the hair may grow back heavier and darker after treatment. However, this is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
