Dermaplaning 2018-01-04T15:32:11+00:00

Why have a Dermaplaning treatment at Therapy House?

Dermaplaning is a pain free, effective method of manual exfoliation, designed to gently remove dead skin cells, dirt, debris and vellus hair ( peach fuzz) along with the build up of tan and make up products.

The procedure involves the use of a blunt scalpel, which is used on clean, skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck.

Will the treatment be beneficial for me?
Yes! Clients who suffer from :

  • A dull complexion
  • Uneven Skin tone
  • Noticeable facial hair / Peach Fuzz

You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.

Results are instant, and the vellus hair removed does not grow back thicker or darker.

Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After Dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on noticeably smoother.
