Dermaplaning At Chelmsford's Best Beauty Salon - Mirabella

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation treatment using a scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and downy hair from the face. 

It helps to unclog pores and instantly reveals brighter and more youthful-looking skin. Your skin will have a much smoother texture allowing your makeup to glide on and sit smoothly on the skin. You will also find that facial products will be absorbed more easily so we highly recommend booking in for a Dermalogica Facial at the same time as your dermaplaning appointment.  

There’s no downtime after dermaplaning so you can go straight back to your usual routine, but please be aware that your face may be a little rosier for a few hours after treatment.  We always recommend you wear SPF50 for 7 days post-treatment.  This is especially important after a dermaplaning treatment to protect your skin from the sun's harsh rays.  

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types but is not recommended if you have an inflamed skin condition, such as active acne.  However, please note that dermaplaning is an effective way of reducing the appearance of old acne scars by removing the discolouration caused from uneven skin texture.

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 highly reactive, 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.
No, one of the main benefits of dermaplaning is that it will remove the build-up of dead skin cells that can block pores and cause spots and pimples.  
No, dermaplaning will not make your hair grow back any thicker or darker.  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. 
There's no downtime required after a dermaplaning treatment.  Some slight redness can sometimes occur, but this doesn't happen in all cases.  You could book in for the treatment during your lunch break if you wish and go straight back to work.
Although the idea of a scalpel being used on your face can sound frightening, be assured that 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.  However, it is really important that the treatment is carried out by fully trained skin care experts like those at Mirabella Beauty to avoid any nicks or scratches.
Your skin will be slightly more vulnerable initially, so as is the case 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 stock Dermalogica skin care products which will be ideal for keeping your skin moisturised and comfortable after dermaplaning. Although it may be tempting to apply makeup to your newly smooth skin, we recommend letting it settle for a day or so before you apply any foundation.
Dermaplaning results can last up to four weeks, and we recommend waiting at least a month between treatments.  If you have sensitive skin it may be advisable to leave it slightly longer.  We'll advise you further at your initial consultation, once we have assessed your skin.
