Suddenly everywhere we look it’s all about dermaplaning. Patients are asking for it, and if you’re a clinic without it you should get it, and soon. If you’re a practitioner looking for another treatment to offer, this should be it. So, what is dermaplaning and why is it said to be the hottest treatment of 2018?

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is like a really effective facial exfoliation where dead skin cells and peach fuzz (those little hairs) on your face are scraped off with a surgical scalpel. What?! Sound a little scary? It’s not at all – it’s similar to medical grade dermabrasion with the procedure gently scraping off the top layer of dead skin along with those tiny hairs most of us have, unclogging pores and leaving you with brighter, cleaner, clearer skin.

The beauty of dermaplaning is that it’s an easy, simple treatment that doesn’t cost a fortune for either patient or practitioner. It is a non-invasive, no downtime procedure that can be done in a lunch hour with instant, awesome results. Riana from Dermaplane Pro, who offer practitioner training in dermaplaning, says there has definitely been a huge increase in interest in this simple but effective treatment. “Both practitioners and patients love the dermaplaning treatment. It takes the facial into the future and gets results almost on par with more invasive procedures such as laser. It is, however, important that practitioners receive proper training on the dermaplaning treatment to ensure they can provide their patients with the best results.”

Dermaplaning has a Celebrity following

Everyone from Australian Zoe Foster-Blake to LA celebrity skin therapist Kate Somerville sing praises for dermaplaning. The results this treatment gets is the reason why.

  • Facial exfoliation – removes dead skin cells
  • Cleansing – removes the build up of dirt and toxins on the top layer of your skin
  • Removes “peach fuzz”
  • Allows for much smoother and even makeup coverage
  • Brightens and evens your skin tone giving you a more youthful glow
  • No downtime – very rarely some patients may get a slight redness but this is rare.

Riana reminds patients that as this procedure uses a surgical scalpel it is really important to ensure your practitioner has the correct training and experience to perform the procedure.

We think this is the treatment to watch for the rest of 2018. Here is the PSH offices we’ve all decided it’s definitely something we all want to try! The results speak for themselves! Stay tuned!
