Updated: Aug 17, 2023

A Dermaplane facial is a safe and pain free procedure for removing dead skin cells, it removes soft facial hair called vellus hair (that’s the science-y name for soft fine facial hair) that traps dirt and oils, it promotes smoother skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars and diminishes the look of fine lines. The skin will be left smooth and naturally radiant. Dermaplaning is not carried out on nose, upper lip, under or around the chin areas.

Who isn't a good candidate for a Dermaplane Facial? A Dermaplane facial is suitable for all ages and for most skin types, male and female, b

ut if you have deep cystic acne or sensitive skin, you may not be a suitable candidate for this treatment. If you have acne, wait until breakouts are clear. This treatment removes 21 days build up of dead skin, so skin will be more sensitive post-treatment so if you have sensitive skin this treatment may make your skin more sensitive. It is also worth noting that Dermaplaning is only meant for the face, not the nose, neck, or chest.

The Dermaplane facial takes around 55 minutes. It includes a good cleanse and, an enzymatic peel and tone, peach fuzz removal followed by a cooling and hydrating mask.

Questions and Answers

DERMAPLANING versus Hydrafacial? They are both forms of physical exfoliation but the methods are different. HYdrafacial or Hydrofacial removes dead skin cells using a jet peel heads that u

se water and gentle peels to smooth the skin surface and to unclog pores around the nose, mouth and chin.

Hydrafacial gives the skin a beautiful glow by getting rid of dead cells and opening the clogged pores. DERMAPLANING safely scrapes off the top layer of skin. It is better suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference. If you have resilient skin, you could try alternating Hydrafacial with Dermaplaning sessions for incredible results.

WHO IS DERMAPLANING FOR? DERMAPLANING is recommended for all skin types except those with severe acne problems. If you have deep cystic acne, then hydrafacial is a much more suitable treatment for you. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

HOW IS DERMAPLANING DONE? DERMAPLANING is a painless procedure, so no discomfort is experienced during this treatment. First, the therapist will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Then a through enzymatic peel is carried out around your nose and T-zone area. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a small, sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other han

d and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? Depending on the growth of hair the full treatment will take 45 to 55 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DERMAPLANING? After the treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, you will need to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher to reduce the risk of hyper-pigmentation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING? Immediately your skin will look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which allows you make up to sit better and your skincare to penetrate more effectively. Claims that this treatment stimulate collagen have not been proven so if you are looking for a collagen boosting treatment then a skin booster is the right treatment.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THE PROCEDURE? It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment. Also note that hair growth rate is different in every individual so no sooner than 4 week

ly intervals for this procedure should work fine.

WHO SHOULD ADMINISTER THIS TREATMENT? DERMAPLANING should only be administered by an experienced t

herapist who is trained in this procedure. STATING THE OBVIOUS! It's advisable not to make any sudden movements during the Dermaplaning procedure. If you need to sneeze - raise your hand!

MYTHS! Many women are often concerned that taking off the peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment.
