DERMAPLANING ADVANCED FACIALS AT LUMIA
What is Dermaplaning – Advanced Exfoliating Facial?
Dermaplaning is a safe, simple and effective method of exfoliating the skin, removing dead cells from the epidermis, and also the fine vellus hairs (known as peach fuzz).
Dermaplaning is a mechanical exfoliation performed by a professionally trained skincare professional using a sterile, surgical scalpel held at a 45 degree angle.
Dermaplaning is sometimes called facial shaving but there is a lot more to it, and unlike dermabrasion, which it is often confused with, it is far quicker and has few to no adverse effects.
Dermaplaning’s purpose is to give your skin an immediate exfoliation for a luminous glow, dewy skin, faster cell turnover, and a smoother texture. It also allows any products you apply after to penetrate deeper. This means that makeup can be applied with far more ease and precision, and overall has a far better finish.
Clients having this done are typically looking for skin rejuvenation, reduction in the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.
Although relatively new in the UK, Scotland and Glasgow, dermaplaning facials have been used for many years in the States and are hugely popular with celebrities, esteticians and makeup artists.
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and our clients have found it very relaxing.
Dermaplaning Standard Facial – £55 (up to 1 hour)
Standard treatment begins with a skin cleanse, then your skin is prepped.
We then begin the Dermaplaning process using the surgical scalpel to remove the dead skin and vellus hair from the face and neck. After this an enzyme is applied which helps remove dirt and unblock pores.
The treatment is completed with a moisturiser to suit your skin type and an SPF to protect your skin from UV damage.
Dermaplaning Deluxe Facial – £69 (up to 1 hour 15 mins)
Deluxe treatment is an extended version of the Standard Dermaplaning.
After the Dermaplaning treatment we will apply a firming, hydrating or soothing mask which will help to further your results.
While this is working you can lie back and enjoy a pressure point massage.
This is the ultimate in relaxing facial treatments with the added bonus of younger, healthier skin.
