Dermaplaning Skin Exfoliating Treatment at Blakes Hair & Beauty Salon in Canterbury
Dermaplaning is a highly effective facial exfoliation treatment, now available at our Canterbury beauty salon. Recommended by dermatologists, the treatment involves one of our fully-trained skin care experts using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the dead skin cells from the surface of your face. It’s also a very effective method of removing downy hair, or “peach fuzz” and by removing dead cells, it will allow your skincare products to work better.
Over time, dead skin cells and fine hairs build up on your face, which can lead to a dull, flaky complexion. A build up of dead skin cells can also clog your pores and hair follicles, leading to pimples, spots and breakouts. So to maintain a healthy glow it’s super important to have a regular exfoliation treatment such as dermaplaning – plus your makeup will go on more smoothly without all the tiny hairs on your face in the way!

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermaplaning
Is dermaplaning suitable for everyone?
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.
Will dermaplaning cause breakouts?
No, one of the key benefits of dermaplaning is to remove the buildup of dead skin cells that can block pores and cause spots and pimples.
Will dermaplaning make my facial hair grow back thicker?
No, there’s no need to worry, dermaplaning will not make your hair grow back any thicker or darker. Although 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.
Are there any side-effects of dermaplaning?
There’s no downtime after needed after dermaplaning. Some slight redness can occur, but this doesn’t happen in all cases. You could pop in for the treatment during your lunch break if you wish and go straight back to work.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
We know that the thought of a scalpel being used on your face sounds pretty frightening, but 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. It’s really important that it is carried out by fully trained skin care experts like those at Blakes to avoid any unwanted nicks or scratches.
What after-care will be required following a dermaplaining treatment?
Your skin barrier will be slightly more vulnerable initially, so as 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’d recommend letting it breathe and settle for a day or so before you apply any foundation.
How frequently will I need dermaplaining treatments?
Dermaplaning results can last up to four weeks, keeping you glowing all month long. We recommend waiting at least a month between treatments, but if you have sensitive skin it may be advisable to leave it slightly longer. We’ll advise you at your initial consultation, once we have assessed your skin.
