What can I expect during the treatment?
After eye makeup is removed the skin will be double-cleansed to create a clear canvas for treatment. Skin is then blotted and degreased using an oil-free toner. The dermaplaning procedure is methodically carried out working the whole face one area at a time. After the dermaplaning is complete we will apply a serum or moisturiser depending on skin type and a lip and eye product to finish.
The treatment is completely pain-free and no downtime is required.
Are there any side effects to the treatment?
Dermaplaning is a very safe procedure. Skin is stretched during the procedure and the blade is always held at a 45-degree angle to reduce the risk of nicking the skin with the blade. If you have dry patches of skin, a small amount of serum is applied to enable to the blade to glide across the skin smoothly.
Skin may be a little pink immediately after treatment due to being stretched but this normally subsides within an hour or so.
Peach fuzz / vellus hairs do not come back thicker and stronger. It will grow back at exactly the same rate, thickness and texture as before
How often would I need treatment?
Dermaplaning treatment can be carried out every 3-4 weeks and removal of peach fuzz / vellus hair and dead skin can be achieved with a single treatment.
One of the main benefits of this advanced facial is that it can be paired to enhance the benefits and results of other treatments such as skin peels, microdermabrasion, enzyme treatments, oxygen therapy, transdermal therapy or vacuum therapy. By removing the build-up of hair, oils, dirt and dry skin it increases penetration of product and complementary therapies meaning quicker, better results.

Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
The laser light energy coverts to heat and passes through the outer layers of skin and is selectively absorbed by the hairs dark pigment in the hair follicle. This cuts the supply of blood going to the hair follicle and destroys the root without damaging the surrounding cells, inhibiting growth.
Our Bio-care one Lasers are high-powered, dual wavelength systems that deliver high energy for faster results. Your aesthetician will perform a patch test prior to treatment to calibrate the Laser to the most suitable settings for your skin type.
It is important to note that lasers are effective in removing hairs, which are in the growing (Anagen) phase. Follicles in the second phase (Categen), and third phase (Telagen), will not be affected since the dermal papilla, or root, of the follicle is not yet attached to the follicle itself. Due to the hair growth cycle, additional treatments will be required once the dormant hairs reach the Anagen phase.
What can I expect during treatment?
We request that you shave the area being treated the day before your appointment.
You will be provided with eye protection to wear during the Laser treatment and the aesthetician will mark out the area to be treated in a grid pattern to ensure every millimetre is covered. The Laser hand piece is then worked over the entire area.
Laser hair removal is predominantly painless, the feeling can be compared to an elastic band snapping against the skin.
A powerful cooler works alongside the laser, taking the majority of the heat out of the skin. Aloe vera gel is applied post treatment.
In between Laser Hair Removal treatments you are free to shave the area as you wish.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after treatment there may be some mild redness and swelling around the hair follicles, this will generally last less than a few hours. For 24 hours post-treatment you should avoid heat treatments, saunas and direct sun exposure. We apply sun block to exposed treated areas and you should continue to do so for at least a week after your treatment.
Allow around 10-20 days for the hairs to ‘shed’ or fall out following your treatments, you can help it along by gentle exfoliation if you wish.
How many treatments would I need?
The number of treatments required will vary depending on various factors, such as; the thickness of the hair; the area being treated; the individual; and your hair growth cycle. Most clients usually require a minimum course of 6-8 treatments. To ensure that as many hairs as possible are treated in the growth phase, there tends to be a 4/6-week interval between each treatment. Top-up sessions are often required periodically.
What results can I expect to see?
Many clients see a slight ‘shedding’ of hair after their first session but we advise that you will start to see a real, noticeable reduction after your third treatment. Some hairs are naturally thicker and have deeper roots which meaning they can be a little more stubborn to treat, meaning that they may take a little longer to get noticeable results.
