Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning Skin Exfoliating Treatment at Shape Hair & Beauty Salon in Teddington, SW London

DERMAPLANING TREATMENT Teddington Beauty SalonDo you have tired looking skin that's lost its glow?  Try a dermaplane facial!

Dermaplaning is a highly effective facial exfoliation treatment, now available at our Teddington beauty salon.   Recommended by dermatologists, the treatment involves our fully-trained skin care expert using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the dead skin cells from the surface of your face to reveal the glowing skin below. 

Dermaplaning is also a very effective method of removing downy vellous hair, or "peach fuzz" and, as an added bonus, it will allow your skincare products to work better too, plus your makeup will go on more smoothly and you will need to use less of it.

Over time, dead skin cells and fine hairs build up on your face, which can lead to a dull, flaky complexion.  A build up of dead skin cells can also clog your pores and hair follicles, leading to pimples, spots and breakouts.  So to maintain a healthy glow it's super important to have a regular exfoliation treatment such as dermaplaning.

Results are immediately visible and no down-time is needed.

Dermaplaning FAQs

Dermaplaning is safe for most skin types, especially those with sun damage, fine lines or very dry skin and dull skin.  It is not recommended however if you have sensitive or inflamed skin conditions, such as active acne (although dermaplaning can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars once your skin has healed).  It's also best avoided if you have rosacea or keratosis pilaris, as it may irritate your skin.  We can recommend alternative treatments if you have any of these conditions.
One of the key benefits of dermaplaning is to remove the buildup of dead skin cells that can block pores and cause spots and pimples, making them less likely.
This is a common concern, but there's no need to worry - dermaplaning doe not make your hair grow back any thicker or darker.  Although when your hair starts to grow back it may feel a bit different and may initially seem to be a bit thicker, this is simply because the end of each hair has been cut by the scalpel, rather than tapering off.  In fact it will be the same texture and thickness as before and will grow at the same speed. 
Some slight redness can occur, but this doesn't happen in all cases.  The treatment is not painful and there's no downtime needed afterwards.  In fact, you could pop in for the treatment during your lunch break if you wish and go straight back to work.
We know that the thought of a scalpel being used on your face sounds pretty frightening, but the procedure does not actually hurt at all!  You will be able to feel it, but it's similar to shaving any other part of you body.  It's really important that it is carried out by fully trained skin care experts like those at Blakes to avoid any unwanted nicks or scratches.
Your skin barrier will be slightly more vulnerable immediately after treatment, so as with many skin care treatments, you will need to wear a high SPF to protect your skin as it will be especially sensitive to UV damage.  At your appointment we will also recommend the best moisturising products to help to sooth and repair your skin.  We'd also recommend letting your skin breathe and settle for a day or so before you apply any foundation - tempting as it may be to try applying it to your newly smooth skin!
Dermaplaning results can last up to four weeks, keeping your skin glowing for a month. We recommend waiting at least a month between treatments, but if you have sensitive skin it may be advisable to leave it slightly longer.  We'll assess your skin at an initial consultation and advise you after that. All our beauty treatments are bespoke and adapted to our clients' particular skin care needs.
