A dermaplane facial is a form of deep exfoliation. This facial exfoliation treatment is quick, non-invasive, and minimises the appearance of fine lines.

The procedure of dermaplaning is an exfoliation process on the skin. It uses a surgical steel scalpel (dermaplaning tool) to lightly scrape the skin’s surface as the technician holds it tight and close. The tool is held at a 45-degree angle to remove hair and skin cells and brush along the skin. 

Immediate results

According to the online medical publication Healthline, reducing facial hair and dead skin cells makes patients’ faces visibly brighter even after the first treatment. Why? Because the top layer of our skin is exposed to harsh toxins and irritants daily. This is especially true if you ride public transport or work exposes you to the sun. When your dermatologist sloughs off your damaged skin, it reveals a fresher, youthful layer.

Low risk

Skin dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types, especially dry ones. You might experience redness on your face, but that will be gone in a day or two. Be sure to use a qualified and trained professional. Dermaplaning is the perfect exfoliation procedure because it generally doesn’t cause side effects.

Quick procedure

Dermaplane is also a quick skin treatment, taking only 30 to 45 minutes, and is non-invasive. There is no prep or recovery time from having a dermaplane, so you can fit it into your schedule without compromising other commitments. Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks.
You may experience temporary shedding (called “exfoliation”) for up to 7 days after this procedure, but this only lasts a few days for most people.

Reduce fine lines

Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation that removes dead skin. Additionally, it exposes younger, brighter skin, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles naturally. In our later years, a natural cell turnover does not occur, as our body is busy with other functions like growth, reproduction, and so forth. Therefore, removing dead cells is necessary to expose new ones to do their jobs properly. As a result, your face will also have a smoother texture because you will get rid of peach fuzz or vellus hairs that can be prickly.

Makeup sits better

Exfoliation helps your skincare products penetrate the skin and improve their results. So the days immediately following a dermaplaning treatment are the best time for your makeup.
Whether it’s vitamin C serums or hyaluronic acid-based products, dermaplaning will enhance their penetration because they are lightweight enough to reach the bottom layers of your epidermis. Still, they cannot go much deeper than that without assistance. Because your practitioner removes dead skin cells from your face, it is smoother and more readily absorbs the makeup pigments. The foundation and powder will appear smooth on your skin because you won’t have small lines or hairs making creases. Overall, a dermaplaning session boosts your confidence while maximising your makeup.

Triggers regeneration

Another benefit of dermaplaning is helping your facial cells regrow, allowing serums and moisturisers to seep into the skin. The procedure helps patients with dry and uneven skin tones because the procedure gets rid of the cracked epidermis. This type of exfoliation can even take away some types of acne scars. Moreover, because your skin pores are unclogged, your skin can become less prone to acne breakouts. Before treatment, the skin should undergo its normal rejuvenation cycle of thirty days. 

Prevents breakouts

During exfoliation, your natural oil, known as sebum, is spread out, preventing it from accumulating in one area and eliminating dead skin cells. This prevents breakouts, as the chances of clogged pores decrease when dead skin cells are eliminated. Exfoliating also promotes cell turnover, giving you healthier, glowing skin over time!

Good for sensitive skin

If you’re the type whose face gets irritated from one session of dermabrasion, you might be better suited for dermaplaning. Although it uses a scalpel to scrape skin cells, it is painless.
Dermaplaning treatment is also an excellent option for people with sensitive skin. If you are pregnant, dermaplaning exfoliation is also a good option because this procedure does not introduce chemicals to your skin.


Hair will grow back thicker and quicker
The most common concern related to hair removal and shaving is that hair grows back darker and thicker.
By simply shaving the hair from different body parts, many believe the hair will grow back thicker and darker.
Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker.
As a result, the shaved hair has a blunt tip. If the hair has been shaved, the dull edge can appear thicker than the pointed tip, but it is not necessarily larger.
In the same way as shaving, dermaplaning removes very fine hair called vellus hair. The fine hair on the face is so thin and soft that removing it won’t make a noticeable difference in the thickness of the hair.
The skin will look smoother and radiant once the peach fuzz is removed.

Does it hurt?

Most people do not feel any pain with dermaplaning.
Like shaving, the procedure is painless, but some irritation may occur afterwards.
Dermaplaning, on the other hand, feels more like a gentle sweeping motion compared to other hair removal methods, such as laser, threading, and waxing.

Does it cause breakouts?

Dermaplaning is an effective defensive measure in reducing the risk of acne breakouts.
Removing the dead skin prevents dirt and debris from getting trapped in the pores and follicles of the skin.
Dermaplaning should not be used as a treatment for active acne. The procedure should not be performed on acne-prone skin.

A round up

Although there are many benefits to dermaplaning, there are also some things to watch out for. Dermatologists do not recommend this procedure for patients with cystic acne, excessively oily skin, or people with hirsutism or excessive facial hair growth.
Results also vary depending on how your skin reacts to exfoliation. The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduce the appearance of acne scars. By stimulating the production of new skin cells, this treatment helps your skin look and feel younger. What worked for your friend may not necessarily yield the same results for you. As with any skin procedure, it is best to consult a trained professional before signing up for this treatment.

You’ve probably heard of microdermabrasion which provides a deeper exfoliation thanks to the diamond crystal head. Hydrodermabrasion is a more gentle way to do just that, which makes it suitable for the most sensitive skin types too.
Hydrodermabrasion facial uses the healing powers of water to lift out impurities. It’s gentle, cleanses pores, promotes rejuvenation.
The gentle abrasion tool removes the top layer of dead skin and provides a crystal-free exfoliation:
* Water is sprayed over skin at a supersonic speed, removing dead skin cells and allowing deep hydration.
* The gentle water jet releases the pores from dirt, cosmetic residues, toxic substances, excessive sebum and bacteria.
* The process itself takes about 15-20 minutes. The water that is used can be infused with minerals and vitamins – depending on your skin’s type and needs.
* The treatment will increase circulation to your skin.
* Hydrodermabrasion can be used as a preparatory step to a facial treatment, just like a scrub, and will provide better absorption for all the nutrients that will follow.
* This treatment will not over-exfoliate – the peeling is super gentle to your skin.
* It’s very relaxing, with zero discomfort


Hydrodermabrasion is highly effective in improving the skin’s overall texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and giving deeper hydration to the skin. Congested and enlarged pores will become cleaner and smaller over time, if you stick to a regular facial regime.

Who’s it for?

* It’s an excellent choice for people who have tender or very sensitive skin. Super effective if you have darker skin tones, ageing skin, skin that is congested and/or blemished, as well as dry skin. Oily skin can benefit too as hydro-dermabrasion helps to make it less greasy, and pores can be shrunk.
* It’s totally suitable for both ladies and gents, but the face has to be freshly shaved.
* If you have mild acne scars, their appearance can be reduced, and fine lines can be decreased. Your skin will see the results immediately after the procedure.
* It’s the perfect treatment if you need a gentle but thorough facial directly before a big event, such as a wedding.
* If you have dark spots like age-spots and hyper-pigmentation here and there, hydro-dermabrasion will help to eliminate them over time.
Thanks to its gentle properties, hydro-dermabrasion is perfectly suitable to perform in wintertime.

The first colour of light used in LED light therapy is red. Red light is known to stimulate collagen production, which is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. By increasing collagen production, red light therapy can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.
Red light therapy is also used to treat rosacea, a skin condition that causes redness and inflammation on the face. The therapy helps to soothe and calm the skin, reducing the symptoms of rosacea.

The next colour of light used in LED light therapy is blue. Blue light therapy is used to treat acne by killing the bacteria that cause breakouts. It works by penetrating the skin and killing the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, which is responsible for causing inflammation and breakouts.
Blue light therapy is a great option for those who are looking for an alternative to topical creams and antibiotics, which can be harsh and cause side effects.

Green light therapy is used to improve the overall appearance of the skin. It helps to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation, making it a great option for those who suffer from sun damage or have uneven skin tone.
Green light therapy works by balancing the skin’s natural pigments, which helps to even out the skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
