Dermaplaning Course Overview

Dermaplaning is a gentle, non-invasive form of manual exfoliation of the skin in which a tool is used to gently exfoliate the outermost layers of the epidermis to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. This encourages the skin to regenerate new skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant. A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Even products penetrate the skin better following Dermaplaning.

Clients report that their skin feels smooth, clean and fresh, and the results are immediate with no down time.

Although it has been a popular service in America for some time, it has seen a recent surge in popularity in the UK.

There are numerous benefits of Dermaplaning that clients will love.

      • it can help remove that fine vellus hair (often referred to as “peach fuzz”) from the face.
      • it gives a deep but gentle exfoliation which leaves the complexion looking brighter and more radiant.
      • It creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.

Dermaplaning is a firm favourite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses as it eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras.

As with other exfoliation methods, dermaplaning allows for better penetration of active ingredients contained in products into the skin.

It can also have a positive effect on the appearance of scars, in particular acne scars, pigmentation and fine lines if the client undertakes a course of treatments.

Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types and colours and provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins.

Dermaplaning may also be used in conjunction with other aesthetic services, for instance a peel done immediately after dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly.
