Also known as epidermal levelling, or epi-blading, the treatment is a deep physical exfoliation using a sterile blade. It is an advanced facial treatment that scrapes away accumulated skin cells and vellus hairs aka “peach fuzz”, without downtime! This exfoliating treatment can be used in conjunction with peels, masks or LED Light Therapy and it immediately leaves the skin feeling smooth, supple and vibrant! As vellus hairs are removed, make up will sit beautifully on the skin, making this a fantastic treatment prior to special occasions (book 5-7 days prior).
Dermaplaning is perfect as a one off treatment for special occasions where you want your makeup to sit nicely (please make sure your make up artist approves of this treatment first).
We do not recommend this treatment for regular use as it is important not to remove your skins barrier.
Dermaplaning will not cause the vellus hair on your face to grow back thicker or darker, however as the hair grows out it may feel blunt, but when the hair completely falls out a new soft ended hair will grow back
