Dermaplaning is a treatment that promotes a physical exfoliation using a specialised device designed to remove accumulated dead skin cells and vellus hair in a controlled manner. All treatments are paired with a Metabolic Peel and LED treatment, for an instant increase in hydration and reduction in fine lines, to reveal brighter, glowing skin. Seeya later peach fuzz!

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF DERMaPLANING?
At Skin Collective, we only employ highly skilled Nurses and Dermal Therapists to ensure safe and quality care. On rare occasions, very small nicks in the skin can occur which is the reason skin conditions such as skin inflammation (pustular acne) or trauma, dark skin tones or skin types that keloid scar are not suitable for this treatment.
Hair growth following dermaplaning is not at risk of being darker or thicker. This is because the treatment targets vellus hair (peach fuzz) and not terminal hair.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
After a single treatment your skin will be notably smoother and brighter, minus the peach fuzz. For the benefits of exfoliation the best results are seen from two to three treatments, four to six weeks apart. Whereas for hair removal, repeat treatments will be required according to the growth cycle of your hair. Dermaplaning removes fine vellus hair, which does not grow back thicker.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?
We start with a double cleanse of the face before commencing dermaplaning, with a sterile disposable scalpel. A Metabolic Peel is applied and stays on the skin for five to ten minutes to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed. The peel is then soaked off and serums and a rich moisturiser is applied. All Dermaplaning treatments include a tailored LED treatment, which stimulates collagen production and has crazy impressive healing properties. 45-minute treatment
WILL IT HURT?
You may feel a tingling or tightening sensation in the skin, but no pain.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
There is no downtime post peel, which means you can apply make-up and continue with normal activity. Nothing is off limits!
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent damage to the skin. Ensure SPF 30 or above is applied and remember to re-apply throughout the day (every 2 hours).
