Manual exfoliation is performed using a specialised blade that safely and effectively removes the uppermost layer of the skin, specifically dead skin cells that have accumulated over time. The consequences of leaving useless, old skin cells on facial skin is skin that appears dull, blemished and aged. However, dermaplaning your skin allows fresh, new skin cells to exude their healthy glow so that your face feels clean and looks dramatically invigorated.
About the Dermaplaning Process:
Also referred to as “blading” or “levelling the skin”, dermaplaning generally takes about 30 minutes to complete. Dermaplaning is painless and involves one of our specialists holding a dermatome at a 45 degree angle against your skin in order to gently stroke your skin to remove only the epidermal layer. In fact, it looks and feels like someone is simply giving you a professional shave! Patients are never cut and no bandages or ointments are necessary following the procedure.
People who wish to have facial “fuzz” removed or suffer from minor acne scars will find dermaplaning to be an ideal technique for improving these conditions. Waxing and tweezing unwanted hair away is painful and often leaves skin irritated, red and bumpy. Dermaplaning is a painless alternative to these less than pleasant hair removal procedures. Additionally, the appearance of acne scars that have not recessed into the dermal layer of the skin can be reduced by the action of the dermatome sloughing off dead skin cells that exacerbate the visibility of these types of scars.
Depending on the severity of a person’s skin condition, dermplaning may also be able to improve the appearance of skin discolorations, fine lines, excessively dry, coarse skin and large pores. Essentially, dermaplaning is an effective skin rejuvenation technique that can give you smoother, clearer and younger-looking skin by diminishing the unattractiveness of a variety of minor skin conditions.
