Dermaplaning Facials

Dermaplane facials have been the best kept secret by the Hollywood elite for years! Starlets Marylin Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor have been known to have been big fans of the Dermaplane treatment helping to keep their skin looking soft, smooth and ready for those close ups.

Want healthier brighter skin?

This relaxing treatment uses a surgical scalpel to remove dirt, debris and skin cells from the outermost layer or the epidermis. This deep exfoliation leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth with no down time.

Unlike other abrasive exfoliations the Dermaplane facial is very gentle and relaxing. We use no harsh chemicals to remove dead skin and oils so the treatment is much kinder to the skin. Did we mention it also removes vellus hairs from the skin?

Removing the vellus hairs from your skin means that foundation will sit perfectly on the skin and your make up will look flawless. By removing vellus hairs from the skin we also increase absorption qualities of your daily skincare by 40%.

Over time with regular Dermaplane treatments the skin will increase cell turnover this helps to treat fine lines, wrinkles and light acne scarring, keeping the skin fresh, clean and with a youthful glow.

What happens during the treatment?

During the treatment the skin is prepared by cleansing and toning. A consultation and evaluation of the skin will indicate which skincare range will be used during the treatment. You will be asked to lie back and enjoy the treatment as a fine scalpel is slowly and precisely moved over every area to be treated. The 1st pass will remove vellus hair and debris. The 2nd pass will remove dead skin cells. During a Luxury Dermaplane treatment your therapist will then apply a deeply cleansing Enyme Peel to the freshly exfoliated skin. These enzymes eat up any remaining dead skin cells to create a polished look. A deeply soothing and nourishing botanical sheet mask is applied to the face as you enjoy a scalp, hand or foot massage. Finally we apply a rich Hyaluronic and/or Vitamin C serum to complete the Dermaplane facial.
