Who can perform Dermaplaning?
A Beauty Therapist who is trained to a level 3, semi-permanent makeup artist, a Dentist, Nurse or Doctor.
What is the technique and is it safe?
It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained technician. The technique is performed by using a specialised sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taught and gently scrapes the blade at a 45-degree angle.
Once the vellous hair is removed will it grow back quicker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine villous hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks.
Can Dermaplaning cause the skin to bleed?
Yes, excessive scraping, nicks and cuts can cause bleeding. That is why it is very important to have a professional technician who has the correct tools to do this treatment.
What areas can be treated?
The treatment is to be only performed on the face. You should not Dermaplane the eyelids, neck or chest.
How often can this procedure be done?
Dermaplaning can be done every 3-4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 2 – 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days before repeating.
Can Dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?
Yes. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to prep the skin for a chemical peel.
Who can be treated?
All skin types can benefit from Dermaplaning. Even men can be treated over non-bearded areas only.
