Dermaplaning Facial in Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Glowing skin is always in…
As we age, our cell turnover decreases and this affects our skin texture and tone. A buildup of dead skin cells results in a dull complexion and contributes to clogged pores and acne. Dermaplaning gently buffs away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a brighter smoother complexion and leaves the skin oh-so-smooth and perfectly prepped for make-up.
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment which clears the skin’s surface so that skin products, chemical peels, facials and serums can penetrate deeper into the skin, rather than just sitting on the surface. It also removes peach fuzz/vellus hair and creates clear channels into the skin leaving a soft, smooth surface ready for makeup to glide on flawlessly.
The procedure involves the use of a ten-inch scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects include increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring and the removal of fine facial hair. For best results, the procedure is performed monthly, in approximately forty-five minutes, with no downtime post-treatment.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active acneic skin. It is particularly effective on clients with dry or rough skin texture as it helps to improve acne scarring and uneven skin tone. One of the best things about this advanced facial is that it can be paired to enhance the benefits and results of other treatments such as Chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion and HydroJet Aquafacial. Eliminating dead skin cells, pollution buildup and vellus hair doesn’t just create a better base for makeup, it also allows skincare products and treatments to do their job more effectively. For the week or so after treatment, your skin will be particularly receptive to anything that you apply.
Many people worry that the removal of the vellous hair will mean that it grows back thicker and stronger, but this is absolutely not the case. The hair on your face is soft and fine like peach fuzz and will always stay that way.

People often think that these are one in the same. They’re not. Dermaplaning is performed by trained Aesthetic Professionals using a surgical scalpel on tautly stretched skin. Most razors have two blades which are much duller than a surgical blade. Dermaplaning requires short strokes at a 45-degree angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region. The skin is resurfaced on a much deeper and on a more effective level than shaving.
A Chemical Peel immediately after Dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the Chemical Peel penetrates deeper and more effectively. They go great together, and we recommend this combination for optimum results.
