Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types. Jill says patients with sun damage, fine lines, very dry skin and dull skin are great candidates. However, since the procedure requires the use of a sharp scalpel, those with enflamed acne should pass on it until their complexion clears up.
There’s no downtime. Some light redness can be expected but not always. “It’s perfectly fine and common to make an appointment during lunch and go right back to work after the 30-minute treatment,” Jill adds.
The results can last up to four weeks. The procedure removes three weeks of dead skin cells, so your glow will last all month long. “But since your skin is always growing, you’ll need to schedule an appointment every month or so to maintain your results,” Jill says.
Don’t trust just anyone to perform the procedure. Jill recommends only seeing a doctor or medical aesthetician.
Add a Glycolic Peel. A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin. Jill recommends adding this to your treatment for only £15. This treatment is carried out in our award-winning cosmetic clinic in South Shields.
