Dermaplaning is one of the most popular hair removal treatments for the face.

The treatment is performed by using a scalpel to exfoliate the dead skin cells from the face, while also removing the soft peach fuzz.

The instrument used is a sterile surgical scalpel blade, which gently removes the top layer of the skin, the stratum corneum and vellus hair.

Skin is left incredibly smooth, with a fresh look and the skin will be visibly brighter. Skin tone evens and boosts fibroblast cell turnover, helping rejuvenate the skin.

Treatment Benefits

  • Exfoliates the stratum corneum layer of the skin. Boosts fibroblast cell turnover, helping to rejuvenate the skin with no downtime.
  • Can be performed as often as needed on a weekly basis. Dermaplaning can last between 6-8 weeks.

Treatment Protocol

  • Consultation – either in person or virtually over zoom.
  • Make-up removal. We remove make-up, and cleanse oils and products from the treatment area on the face. We would prefer if you arrived without make-up, however, we realise that make-up isn’t always possible to remove before a treatment.
  • Cleansing process – initial cleanse to remove surface impurities from your skin.
  • Double cleanse – to ensure your skin is sqeaky clean before we begin the dermaplane process.
  • Million Dollar preparation and application of a specialist balm to help the blade glide across your skin. For this process, we will use the brand new Million Dollar specialist Dermaglide Pro scalpel tool, with a surgical blade to exfoliate the skin and remove vellus hairs.
  • Application of specialist Million Dollar serum to help tone your skin and make it glow.
  • SPF 50 with a hint of a tint will be applied to help protect your skin. We advise SPF 50 is used every day.

N.B. The Dermaplane procedure is painless, however on occasion, there can be small grazes, which is entirely normal.
