Dermaplaning

Face It are proud to announce certification in Dermaplaning or Epidermal Levelling. A simple safe procedure with no downtime, it exfoliates the skin surface and removes vellus (peach fuzz) hair. 

Using a scalpel and a light touch, we simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. It is a great treatment for those who have excess vellus hair on the skin, as this hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client brighter, healthier looking skin.

Dermaplaning does not affect the actual hair follicle. Every individual hair follicle has its own individual DNA, which we are born with. This will determine whether it is vellus (light, thin) or terminal (thicker, darker). Terminal hairs are predetermined, they tend to appear due to hormone changes i.e.pregnancy, menopause and hormonal abnormalities. True, once the hair is cut, it has a blunt edge. But this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered. So therefore, Dermaplaning does not affect how your hair would regrow. It will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

Single Treatment $95 (45mins)

Dermaplaning with Lactic Peel $145

The treatment can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with a chemical peel for better penetration of product. For best results we recommend a course of 4-8 treatments with 3-4 week intervals if you require this treatment for brightening and skin exfoliation. Results will be seen with each and every treatment, and treatments can be ongoing. If you are requiring this treatment for the hair removal benefits, the treatments are ongoing and you can do these around 4-6 weeks apart

For  your safety all equipment used during your treatment is single use and sterile.
