If you are someone who follows the evolving London trends for the latest innovative skin rejuvenation treatments, you’ll want to know about dermaplaning; the radical new procedure to deeply exfoliate and revitalise the skin, using a surgical 10-gague blade.
What is Dermaplaning?
At Skin Perfection in the heart of the capital we offer this highly-effective, innovative treatment to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and the appearance of dull, dehydrated and ageing skin, as well as the removal of fine, vellus hair (peach fuzz).
During the treatment, your skin is held taught and a specially designed scalpel is held at a 45-degree angle whilst your practitioner ‘shaves’ away 2 to 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells, dirt and other debris to reveal smoother, softer and clearer looking skin.
“Will Dermaplaning encourage the hair on my face to grow back thicker or courser?”
The answer to this question is no. The blade used in dermaplaning is extremely sharp and cuts the hair cleanly and precisely, unlike a razor you’d use to shave your legs, which is designed to shave thicker hair and cuts it in a very crude and blunt way. In dermaplaning the hair on your face taken away will simply grow back in the same thickness and very fine texture.
It may feel slightly different as it grows back since it has been cut at an angle but you won’t need to worry, this will subside quickly and the hair will behave normally as before.
Why should I have dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a great treatment on its own, or when used to prepare your skin before another skin treatment; when combined with one of our skin peels, you’ll get enhanced, longer-lasting results. This combination is perfect for those who get congested skin, and those who want a bit more from their skin rejuvination.
A combination treatment of dermaplaning with a skin peel is also fantastic for sun damage and ageing skin, as the stimulation of skin cell turnover can reduce the appearance of pigmentation!
You can expect to see the benefits of dermaplaning even after one session, although it is recommended to have the treatment once every 3 to 4 weeks for optimum results. It’s worth knowing that the skin may feel more sensitive and have some slight dryness and flaking following the treatment for a few days. Using a high SPF sunscreen as well as hydrating serums is also vital.
Dermaplaning can only be performed by an expertly trained practitioner and here at Skin Perfection, London, we ensure that our highly-qualified expert team of therapists have all the necessary training and accreditations.
