What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning (also commonly known as Epiblading) is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment used to remove dead skin cells as well as any vellus (fluffy) facial hair. This treatment immediately rejuvenates the skin whilst stimulating the renewal of new skin cells and fibroblast activity. What is that we hear you say? When we increase fibroblast activity, we are increasing collagen and elastin production, which in return gives your skin it’s framework; giving you a plumper, firmer and tighter skin.
In this treatment, a sterile surgical blade is used to carefully glide over the entire face and neck leaving the skin silky smooth, glowing and supple. The skins integrity is always maintained and nourished with our specialised serum, both during and after the treatment, reducing any inflammation and irritation; meaning little to no downtime.
In all of our dermaplaning treatments we start by applying a hydrating and calming sheet mask by Medik8 which ensures your skin is soft and subtle, ready for the blading. This step is crucial for minimising any risk of post dehydration and extra friction caused in the skin. We then perform the dermaplaning treatment followed by leaving you to rest under our Healite II Medical LED light device for an extra healing and anti-aging component. The LED will help speed up any recovery caused by excessive flushing post treatment and will stimulate collagen and elastin, leaving a rejuvenated skin that still has its integrity.
