Dermaplaning


Dermaplaning treatment with Millie in Middlewich Cheshire


At Cheshire Lasers Millie of Peridot Beauty performs Dermaplaning treatments.


What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation treatment that brightens and gives the skin an instant glow.

A sterile scalpel is used to gently and safely remove dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin (epidermis).

This non-invasive treatment leaves the skin more receptive to serums and moisturisers, therefore increasing cell renewal and the production of collagen and elastin, for a more youthful and rejuvenated complexion.

An added bonus to this treatment is the removal of the vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the surface of the skin. This gives a silky look that allows make-up to be applied flawlessly. The treatment is pain-free and many clients have reported it is as a calm, relaxing experience.


Benefits of Dermaplaning:

Removal of dead skin cells
Increases cell turnover (increased collagen production)
Instantly reveals brighter, glowing skin with minimal downtime
Baby soft skin
Removes vellus hair (peach fuzz)
Aids product absorption by up to 70% allowing serums and moisturisers to reach the lower layers of the skin and be more effective
Make-up glides on and sits on the skin smoothly
Unclogs pores
You can benefit from a one-off treatment for a special occasion or have a course of treatments as part of your regular skincare regime. (every 3-4 weeks)


Will Dermaplaning affect hair growth?

Dermaplaning does not alter the structure of the hair. Hair growth will return as it was before the treatment and WILL NOT grow back faster and thicker.


Contraindications to Dermaplaning:

Active acne – pustules, broken or damaged skin
Oral retinoids – Roaccutane (cannot be taken for at least 6 months before treatment)
Topical retinol is OK
Active skin infections – psoriasis, dermatitis (if on the face)
Auto Immune diseases – lupus


Cautions for Dermaplaning:

If you have any of the following please arrange an initial consultation/assessment before booking a treatment:

  • Diabetes that is not controlled (well-controlled diabetics are fine to be treated)
  • Blood thinning medicines
  • Sensitive skin
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

Please note:
We do not recommend a Dermaplaning treatment less than 5 days before a sun holiday.  As the skin is highly sensitive to sun rays following the treatment.


Pre-treatment advice:

  • do not use sunbeds on the day of the treatment and for up to 7 days after.
  • arrive to your appointment make-up free or with as little make-up as possible.

The face will be cleansed and prepped as part of the treatment; however, removing excess make-up and stubborn eye make-up will eat into the treatment time. This means less time for the Dermaplaning.


Dermaplaning Aftercare:

Your skin will be slightly red after the treatment and for up to 1 hour after
You can apply make-up immediately after; however, we recommend you allow the serums to absorb into your skin first for best results, which can take several hours.
Please wear a high SPF for at least one week after treatment.
Vellus hair may feel blunt when growing back
