Dermaplaning is a manual method of exfoliation using a blade. This procedure removes dead skin cells along with fine vellus hairs (aka peach fuzz) from the skins surface, leaving your client with a brighter, clearer and smoother complexion. During the treatment a use of a sterile, surgical scalpel will be used to gently remove the top-most layer of dead skin cells along with fine, vellus hair. This will be collected onto a disposable tissue so that you can show your client what has been achieved. This process is painless and very safe but is only recommended to treat the face and neck areas.

The secret to improve imperfections is by rebuilding collagen fibres within the skin. Skin rollers are a popular device used in skin needling treatment. This procedure stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. During the treatment Titanium Needles are used to cause a ‘controlled trauma’ to the skin. As the skin starts to repair itself, new collagen is formed in the papillary dermis resulting in a ‘plumping’ effect. In time, as the clients skin cells turnover, the new collagen is pushed to the epidermis where you can see visible results.
