Dermaplaning also known as epi-blading is a gentle method of exfoliating the skin. It is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a sterile surgical blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

Dermaplaning is a  specialised but highly effective skin care treatment. It can, when administered properly, be very very effective and relaxing. Its effectiveness and relevance is due to its ability to reveal brighter, smoother and more youthful skin. Its effect is almost instantaneous with improvements to skin texture, tone, and laxity. Long-term results revealing an increase in cellular turnover, a reduction in wrinkles and brown spots, improvements in acne scarring and the ultimate in smoother skin with removal of Vellus hair - a.k.a. "peach fuzz" or fine facial hair.

The benefits of removing this fine facial Vellus hair is that it’s this hair that traps debris and oils and contributes to congestion and giving skin a duller lack luster appearance, suitable for all skin types except for acneic skin with active pustule acne, although once this condition has been managed the benefits for oiler and more responsive skin types is the same. It is recommended for all skin types but as discussed deep cystic acne and breakouts need to be controlled and clear before undergoing this treatment.

 It is important to discuss any and all skin concerns before undergoing this or any other treatment, in order to achieve the best results. Allow our experienced and qualified clinicians to expose your inner beauty. 

 Akin to any exfoliation treatment Dermaplaning allows for the transdermal delivery of all infusions and active serums because the dead dry skin cells are no longer creating a barrier to absorption, allowing for penetration via the skin and a polished and smoother canvas for your makeup. This is a NON-GENDER specific treatment and most men love it as a deep shave and exfoliation administered by our experts, it gives them an opportunity to de-stress and allows for the restorative benefits of this procedure to be experienced in conjunction with our BESPOKE and CLASSIC treatments.

A great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of exposing yourself or unborn to treatments which may not be conducive to your condition . Dermaplaning allows for all the benefits without the risk of absorption of chemicals or acids peels.

Dermaplaning's a great SPECIAL EVENTS TREATMENT because it eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and traps dirt and debris aggravating and inflaming the skin.  It removes all the dead skin cells, facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth and translucent. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas. Our clinician often uses dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

Some women are concerned that this procedure will encourage the facial growth of heavier and darker hair, it is totally erroneous and unfounded as the superficial Vellus soft white fine facial hair will grow back at the same rate and texture as it was before any treatments were instigated.

It is important to recognise the typical hair growth cycle, and wait a minimum of 3 - 4 weeks between each treatment, allowing for the rejuvenation cycle of your body to work optimally.
