What is Dermaplaning?
Updated: Nov 29, 2022
Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Adele uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions.
Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful. The only people who can't dermaplane are those with active pustular acne.
What does Dermaplaning do?
The procedure involves the use of a 10 gage scalpel, which curves into a round tip (similar to a butter knife). The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well. It's the perfect procedure to under go before certain other treatments, like Acid Face Peels and MicroRoller.
Treatments can be performed as a one off for special occasions such as weddings, red carpet events etc. But for the best results a course of six treatments is recomended 3-5 weeks apart, whilst some clients love to have the treatment monthly.
Treatment prices start from £50 for a Simply Dermaplaning treatment going upto £80 for the Ultimate Dermaplaning.
