What is Dermaplaning?

If you are in need of a quick skin boost, Dermaplaning is the perfect option for that weekend-ready skin. Dermaplaning is a safe, pain-free procedure that is able to treat a vast array of skin concerns such as fine lines, mild acne scarring, dull and uneven skin, and overall skin health. It also improves the texture of the skin as it removes all vellus hair off the surface of the skin. With little to no downtime, it’s a celeb favourite for that ‘red carpet’ skin as makeup glides on effortlessly.


How does it work?

Dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to lightly remove the dead skin cells from the top of the skin, also helping to remove vellus hairs from the skin. These vellus hairs are what is commonly to blame for excess oils and dirt becoming trapped on the skins surface which can lead to dull skin and blemishes.

Preparing your skin for Dermaplaning

It is important to prepare your skin for the treatment to ensure that not only we can go ahead with the treatment, but that you get the best possible results. 

  • Avoid AHAs for 7 days

  • No other exfoliating treatments for 7 days

  • No hair removal treatments for 28 days (laser, electrolysis etc)

  • With any male clients wanting a full face, please shave the night before to maximise results

Caring for your skin after a Dermaplaning

Although there is no downtime following a Dermaplaning treatment, you may experience possible side effects such as redness or dryness. This treatment involves the use of a surgical blade, and you therefore may be at risk of superficial cuts (unable to feel), these will heal quickly. All of these are completely normal and in the unlikely circumstances of these occurring, they will subside within 72 hours.

  • Avoid the use of Retinoids, AHAs and ‘harsh’ skincare for 7 days

  • Do not use sunbeds for at least 7 days

  • Do not swim in chlorinated water for 7 days

  • Avoid electrolysis, waxing or bleaching the face for 36 hours

  • No excessive exercise immediately after

  • Makeup may be applied directly after, mineral is recommended

  • Skin may feel drier or tighter, this is quite normal. Use extra moisturiser if needed

  • Ensure you wear an SPF moisturiser


Is it painful?

No Dermaplaning is completely pain free.

Will my hair grow back darker?

No, so Dermaplaning only removes the Vellus hairs from the face, this is what is otherwise known as ‘Peach Fuzz’. These Vellus hairs won’t grow back any thicker, darker, or faster than usual. Your hair may appear to feel a bit prickly around 4 days after your appointment, but this returns to usual within the week.


How much does it cost?

Prices for a single treatment range from £55-£65, this is all dependant on which level of treatment you choose to go with.


How often should I have a Dermaplaning?

We recommend a Dermaplaning a minimum of every 3 weeks, this is all dependant on each individuals hair growth.
