Hello smooth skin!
Have you heard of Dermaplaning? It's such a popular treatment right now! So what's all the fuss, or should I say fuzz? This treatment gives instant results, leaving skin silky and smoot. We cleanse the skin, prepare your fresh dermaplane and hop straight to removing all the dead skin, build up, and pesky peach fuzz. We do two passes over the face to ensure we capture as much as humanly possible, though there are a few little areas that we don't pass over such as the bridge of the nose (too boney and thin skinned). But we can apply an organic enzyme peel to target those areas and really make sure we've had a good clear out. Because that's what this is all about, having a good clear out.
Despite working with a surgical blade its surpisingly relaxing to have done, and not in any way painful. Even if the occasional nick does happen you won't even feel it, because the blade is so sharp it also heals pretty much instantaneously. Anyway this is rare and definitely not something to worry about, so calm those nerves.
Who can't we treat?
Like any treatment there are certain conditions (or contra indications as we call them) that would prevent us from performing a dermaplane. These include:
Sometimes we just need to be a little cautious:
If you would like this done but you're just not sure if you can please speak to your GP to make sure it is safe to do so because if we are unsure we won't perform the service. This is an advanced skin treatment and not something we would take a chance with.
OK so we know that there is no downtime from Dermaplaning, your skin glows and is smoothed immediately but what else?
It removes unwanted facial hair, yep that's that peach fuzz. Which in turns allows your make up to glide on effortlessly, and look flawless for Instagram.
It doesn't cause any inflammation, it's a non traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. It enhances the natural shedding process of the skin, stimulating the renewal of collagen and elastin so great for mature skins.
It doesn't disrupt the PH balance of the skin, and it allows products the Organic treatment oil we apply afterwards to be more readily absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin.
Skin tone is really improved, you look brighter and healthier. And dare I say it, my face even looks slimmer after?!
There are many benefits to adding this fun treatment into your skincare regime, you will love the results. Will you try it?
We've been saying this for a long time and any skin professional will tell you the same thing, you should not be using face wipes!

Lets have a look at a few reasons why you should ditch the wipes and opt for something better for your skin and the environment.
