Adding Dermaplaning to the skingen treatment repertoire was an easy decision. It is safe, effective, treats many skin concerns and its affordability makes it a very accessible and sustainable treatment.

We love performing this treatment and we had enough practice sessions now to be called Dermaplaning experts! Our first clients loved and raved about the results as well.

So allow me to explain a bit more about this very simple, but yet skin changing treatment:

Dermaplaning is a technique that uses a special surgical scalpel to exfoliate the topmost layer of skin. It removes dead cells and provides a smooth appearance to the skin. This procedure is the right option for those looking for a non-invasive method of treating skin problems. It is suitable for all skin types and tones. The procedure is safe and causes no pain. It also removes fine facial hair temporarily, without changing the growth pattern of the hair. It should only be performed by a trained professional . Here are benefits of dermaplaning:

  1. No significant downtime

The most important reason to choose dermaplaning is that it does not cause any serious side effects. The epidermal layers are removed in a safe manner that reduces trauma to the skin. Clients may experience mild redness in the treated area. However, it will disappear within two days. It does not use any chemicals, so it does not affect pregnant woman or nursing women who receive it. It minimizes fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and pigmentation without causing any pain or irritation. It is a great alternative for those who are sensitive to microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

  1. Suitable for most skins

Dermaplaning can be done on all skin tones, and all ages.

  1. Immediate results

Dermaplaning renders the desired results immediately and make up can be applied immediately after to hide any redness. It is therefore an excellent option that can be done 2 to 3 days before any special event. By removing dead skin cells, facial hair, dirt and oil, the skin will immediately look smoother and brighter. It will reduce acne eruptions significantly as well as skin discoloration. Skin texture will be smoother and wrinkles softened. Cell turnover is increased rendering an anti-aging benefit. The penetration of actives and home care products are enhanced as well.

  1. Combines well with Other Treatments

Dermaplaning can be used in conjunction with many treatment procedures like chemical peels if necessary. This will increase the peeling depth should this be necessary. Dermaplaning can be repeated monthly, but your skingen skin expert will design a treatment plan best for you, possibly including a mixture of treatments.

  1. It can be used on the body as well

Dermaplaning is an excellent method to treat problems in the face, forearms and back. It reduces bacteria that exhibit around the follicles on the back, contributing to acne. It can treat sun damaged skin on forearms and chest as well.


After your treatment:

Even though there is no serious downtime it is recommended that you minimise direct sun exposure for a few days. The use of a suitable SPF is recommend and your skingen skin expert will advise a suitable peptide serum and peptide cream to promote healing and increased cell turnover.

Home care products are very important to ensure optimal outcomes and fast recoveries.

So, there you have it. Scalpels are not just for surgery, and can be put to very good use in the hands of an experienced and qualified therapist.
