ABOUT DERMAPLANE TREATMENT
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a disposable scalpel to gently remove the layer of dull, dead skin cells and vellus hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANE?
Increases absorption of skin care products
Diminishes the appearance of pigmentation
Removal of dead skin cells
Removal of vellus facial hair
Primes skin for chemical peels, laser treatments and microneedling
Glowing and even skin
WHAT SKIN CONCERNS DOES IT TREAT?
Pigmentation – Photo Damage, Post Inflammatory, Melasma
Acne – Mild to Moderate

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SERVICE?
Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleaning, professional exfoliation in the form of derma planing followed by skin care suited to your unique skin. Dermaplaning has a similar sensation to close a shave which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells simultaneously.
Dermaplane can also be combined with any of our packages. Please see Treatments page.

PREPARATION AND AFTERCARE
Avoid waxing 7 days before and after this treatment.
Avoid topical products 24-48 hours before this treatment such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinols, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid, or other anti-aging and acne products.
Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing or the use of hair removal cream on the area to be treated.
A history of herpes or cold sores may require a course of anti-viral medication pre and post treatment.
You should wait 7 days after receiving Botox or Dermal Fillers to receive treatments.
Do not use heavy makeup for the first day.
Rinse skin gently (with water only) and pat dry/do not rub.
Use a gentle moisturiser and cleanser as needed.
Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. If you must be in the sun, apply SPF 30 or greater.
Avoid excessive heat (heavy workouts, steam room or saunas) for 1-2 days - increasing the body temperature can cause irritation (and possibly injury) to the fresh skin
Avoid chlorine for 24 hours.
Avoid any scrubs or products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, retinol, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.).
You may resume the regular use of these products in 5-7 days.
Do apply serums as absorption levels will are increased. Use Hyaluronic Acid if skin is dry.
Dermaplaning can sometimes create scraping, nicking and/or abrading of the skin.
Do not pick, peel, scratch, or aggressively rub the treated area - you may tear the skin surface causing a wound (and preventing normal healing).
Light scabs may form in the treated area and remain for 24 to 48 hours.
Occasional stinging, itching, redness and/or dryness can occur during the first 24 hours.
A moisturiser or calming serum can be applied to alleviate the symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can do Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types and colours except those with active breakout and men with heavy facial hair. If you have active acne, it is necessary to wait until breakouts are healed before trying this treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.
Who shouldn't do Dermaplaning?
Will my hair grow back thicker and darker?
No, dermaplaning will not alter your natural hair growth. Hair growing back thicker after shaving is one of the oldest beauty myths there is. While it may appear that way, the prickly unwanted guests are just growing back blunt-ended. This gives them a coarse texture, but rest assured, they aren't actually any thicker or darker than they were originally. In the same way, shaving your face will not stimulate more hair growth so you have nothing to fear from the treatment and the growth cycle of your hair will remain the same regardless.
What is the recommended time frame for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment. Treatment recommended to be done every 4 to 6 weeks
Can you treat clients with active acne/breakouts?
While dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, it is not advised for those with active acne and/or frequent breakouts. The procedure can end up leading to over activity in sebaceous glands in these patients, leading to excess oil, and as a result, breakouts. Those with very sensitive skin conditions (such as rosacea) should also consult an esthetician before treatment to ensure dermaplaning is safe.
How is Dermaplaning different to a peel?
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process that does not use acids or enzymes to remove dead skin cells. All of the exfoliation is achieved during your treatment and you will not peel or visibly shed skin after your service, while Peels can result in dramatic peeling in the days following a service. Dermaplaning provides a good alternative to peels for those who desire professional grade exfoliation without the potential social downtime.
What should I expect to feel during the treatment?
Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleansing, professional exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning followed by skin care suited to your unique skin. Dermaplaning has a similar sensation to close a shave which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells simultaneously.
What should I expect after Dermaplaning?
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skin care products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your cosmetics will also go on smoother. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
Can you combine other treatments in the same Dermaplane session?
Yes. You can do the following treatments in combination with a dermaplane session:
- Contouring Mask
You can also do facial peels following dermaplaning, as we remove the initial layer of skin, so a peel can penetrate far deeper into the dermis, making for a more effective treatment. We offer Depigmentation peel and Enzyme Peels.
What is the EXPRESS DERMAPLANE?
The express dermaplane is a stand-alone dermaplane treatment which uses a disposable scapel to exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells, remove vellus hair and build up of debris and oils in the follicle. Brightens dull skin and reduces the appearance of uneven pigmentation and fine lines. Allows your products to penetrate better.
What is the DELUXE DERMAPLANE?
The deluxe dermaplane is a 6-step treatment which uses a disposable scapel to exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells, remove vellus hair and build up of debris and oils in the follicle. It also includes steamer, cleanser, toner, hyaluronic acid serum and moisturiser.
