Vellus Hair Removal
Dermaplaning is a form of deep exfoliation using a sharp surgical blade to manually slough and scrape off any build-up of keratinised skin cells on the face.
The treatment removes vellum hair which can build up debris & oils in the follicle, which can cause breakouts and a dull complexion.
Removing hair and excess debris allows active skin care, mild peels & Light Therapy to penetrate the skin better and for make-up to sit better on the skin.
Immediate results - soft, smooth and radiant skin.
Painless and with no downtime.
Suitable for all skin types and conditions, including sensitivities & redness.
Frequency of treatment:
Every 3-4 weeks.
It is not recommended to perform more often as the skin needs time to regenerate.
Will the soft vellus hair grow back thicker & darker?
No. Dermaplaning cannot change the structure of vellus hair.
Hair will grow back slowly, usually in about 4 weeks and no different than it was previously.
We do not dermaplane the upper lip area to avoid coarser terminal hairs. We also avoid any hormonal hairs.
Once I begin dermaplaning, will I have to continue forever?
The cycle of a vellus hair is around 4-6 weeks if you choose not to continue dermaplaning
Hairs will grow black and return to the same state it was before treatment.
Unlike removing terminal hair, you should not feel stubble as vellus hair regrows.
