What is Dermaplaning?

A highly effective exfoliation procedure, dermaplaning involves the removal of the topmost layer of dead skin and vellus hair (or peach fuzz, the tiny baby hairs) on a person’s face. The skin feels rejuvenated and smoother afterwards. A sterile surgical scalpel is used for the procedure similar to shaving. Once the skin is properly prepped it is scraped using a blade held at a 45 degree angle. At Changes Clinic our technicians are fully qualified for the procedure, making it totally safe for both men and women to be dermaplaned.

Is Dermaplaning suited to all skin types?

Dermaplaning treatments are suited for most skin types including dry skin. However skin with acne (grade 3 and above) should not be dealt with. Breakouts should be clear before any treatment is done.

Moreover, it is not advised to have the treatment on excessively oily skin. If the oil has no hairs to cling to the oil appearance will worsen. Pores can thus be blocked.

The treatment in the skincare clinic should not be carried out on the following people:

  • cancer patients
  • people with blood conditions
  • people with uncontrolled diabetes
  • people with Roaccutane
  • people with sunburn or windburn

For people with cold sores, the dermaplaning professional will use gloves.

What are the benefits of a Dermaplaning Facial

Immediate dermaplaning benefits are:

  • smoother skin (texture is improved)
  • removal of vellus hair
  • skin allows deeper and more effective penetration of skincare products
  • For women makeup will have the tendency to glide on the skin instead of having a powdery effect
  • skin breathes better
  • acne scars are diminished

Dermaplaning is also used to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

An enzyme peel is carried out after dermaplaning to make sure that dead skin cells are removed from the pores.

Are there any side effects from Dermaplaning?

  • The skin becomes more sensitive to sun exposure straight afterwards. Therefore the use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or higher is recommended. There are no other side effects.
  • After treatment, the person looks more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture.

  • Simon Payne is professional, calm and reassuring

    "Six years ago I had unsightly and uncomfortable varicose viens on both my legs and would not wear knee length dresses, skirts or shorts! As one of my daughters was due to get married at the end of the year I decided to visit Simon Payne and see what could be done. I had several sessions of foam therapy where a tiny needle was inserted in to the vien and foam inserted. I found the whole procedure comfortable and relaxed. After a few weeks or so when the bruising had settled I was able to wear shorts once again and a knee length dress for my daughter’s wedding. Simon Payne is professional, calm and reassuring as well as a very nice person I would highly recommend him to anyone." - Karen

  • I love Promax Lipo

    I have been visiting changes now for a couple of months. I have had pro max lipo, facials and waxing. The staff have been lovely and have been really accommodating when I need to bring my little girl with me or change appointment times. Katie on reception has always been really friendly and always gets me a coffee! Rosie has done most of my treatments, she is fab and explained the whole process, and after my initial pro max booking, I went on to book other treatments. I love the pro max lipo and can't believe I haven't had it before!! After 6 treatments I had got into my old jeans, which were a size smaller. I am having my 12th treatment today and can't wait to see how many inches I have lost in total. It has shifted fat from my stomach that has not budged from exercise. Other staff that are equally lovely are Amy and Nicola. I will continue to use Changes for regular treatments such as nails, waxing and facials. Thanks!

  • Ear - Micro Suctioning

    What a truly fantastic place. I was in so much pain with ear wax problem. I walked into 'Changes' reception . Staff were so friendly and the surroundings were fantastic. My wife and I had a lovely cup of coffee and then within 2 minutes we were seen. Jules (the nurse) made me feel so relaxed and she was so chatty. If you need any kind of surgery then it seems that you need look no further than 'Changes' . Staff, facility's, value for money and peace of mind....What else do you need!

    Life changing! After having to draw my brows on for 23 years (over plucking) I can finally look at myself in the mirror and feel AWESOME! Thank you Naomi, you are wonderful! I whole heartedly recommend this fabulously, talented lady to change your life for the better! xx

  • Highly Recommended

    I had such a wonderful experience with Naomi yesterday and am thrilled with my new brows. The whole experience from start for finish was very professional and I felt I had plenty of input into what shape and colour would suit me best.! Some wouldn't understand however my new brows are literally a game changer and will give me so much more confidence when not wearing a full face of make up. Highly recommended!  T.Wheeler - Fareham
