FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Semi-Permanent Makeup

What is dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is a way of exfoliating the skin with a sterile blade by gently removing the top layer of dead skin cells and the vellus hair (peach fuzz). This leaves the skin soft and smooth and gives it a lovely glow.




Benefits of dermaplaning?


By removing the dead skin cells it helps products penetrate the skin deeper giving better results. Dermaplaning will also remove the fine hairs that we have on our face that can often trap oil and dirt resulting in breakouts. The smooth end result gives a perfect base for makeup to be applied.




Is there any down time after dermaplaning?


No – there is no down time after dermaplaning, you can simply apply makeup straight away. We would advise using a sunscreen of at least SPF30 after a treatment for added protection.




Will my hair grow thicker after dermaplaning?


No – it is a total myth that your hair will grow back thicker or you will start to grow a beard. If you have naturally darker hair it may seem thicker as you have experienced weeks of no hair. The very, very fine hair we remove is technically known as vellus hair and is different to the thicker ‘terminal’ hair ladies also remove from underarms areas etc.




How often do I get dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is done every 3-4 weeks however you can discuss this with the beautician when coming in for your treatment. When getting it done you are removing about 2-3 weeks’ worth of skin cells so it’s best to leave it at least that long to get the most beneficial results.




Who should not have dermaplaning?

How long does the dermaplaning treatment take?


30 - 45 mins




What should I do to my skin after dermaplaning?


After dermaplaning the skin needs to treated gently so when you cleanse do it with your hands and make sure you are applying sun cream with at least SPF30 daily. Use gently hydrating serums and moisturisers as your skin will be nicely receptive to your products.

If you would like to combine the treatment with a peel it is wise to allow a couple of weeks between the dermaplaning and the peel.

You should wait at least 7 days after receiving Botox before you have your dermaplaning treatment, this is to ensure the Botox has settled before we start any work in that area.
