Dermaplaning 101: Everything You Need To Know


Dermaplaning is definitely my favourite facial treatment to have. You get instant results and your skin feels deeply cleaned and looks smoother and firmer after just one session. I have a lot of clients ask me...”Does it hurt?”....”Will my skin react badly?” and the most frequently asked question ...”will the hair on my face grow back thicker or darker!?” ...so today I will try to put any doubts or concerns that you may have straight to bed!

First of all...What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation treatment that uses an aesthetician grade blade that is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently remove the dead skin cells and vellus (peach fuzz) hairs found on the skin's surface.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Glowing, smooth skin, removal of Peach fuzz as well as dead skin cells on the surface of your skin that can make skin appear dull and crepey. Un clogs and shrink pores - so great for people with congested skin too! This anti ageing and deep cleansing facial also stimulates Collagen production due to the increased cell regeneration. After a dermaplane your skin will feel plumped, smooth and makeup will glide on.

...and this is why Dermaplaning is so popular!

You get instant results, there’s no downtime, you can wear make-up afterwards if you wish (i prefer to let my skin breath and leave my make-up till the next day if possible) . You just need to follow your Beauty therapists aftercare advice and wear a high SPF (SPF50) and avoid intense exfoliating agents, peels etc for the next week – you won't need them anyway!

What is the difference between dermaplaning and microdermabrasion?

These are both very deep exfoliating treatments that get amazing results, the obvious difference being the tools used to remove the dead skin cells and the downtime after the treatment. After a Dermaplane facial you may have slight redness that will go down in a matter of hours. With Microdermabrasion this may last longer, depending on your skin's sensitivity. 

Who should have a dermaplane facial?

This treatment is suitable for most skin types, however before you have your treatment a thorough consultation will be required to make sure your skin is suitable for this type of facial. 

If you are about to go on holiday you may want to avoid having a dermaplane until 4 weeks after you return a good therapist will advise you to wait until 4 weeks after your return from holiday.

How much does dermaplaning treatment cost?

This all depends on how much you want to treat your skin! A basic 25min Dermaplane facial will cost you £35, but for £60 you get a full hour deep cleansing and anti ageing treatment that includes a Glycolic peel and a collagen stimulating , hydrating mask!

How often should you have dermaplaning?

Once every 4 weeks is frequent enough. You want to let your cells repair & regenerate during this time

Can you do dermaplaning at home? 

I know there are tools you can buy to dermaplane your own face at home but put it this way...I wouldn’t DREAM of putting a blade to my face whilst looking in the mirror and Im professionally trained to perform this treatment - you just can't be 100% sure you are getting the right angle. 

So because of this (and for your own safety at home) the home kits you see online just won’t be at the same standard or tool as the professional blade, so the results won't be as good as what you’d expect in the salon.
