Alumier Dermaplaning

DEEP EXFOLIATION

Alumier Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a deep exfoliating technique using a small sterilised blade to scrape the top surface of the face, removing layers of dead skin, vellus hair (peach fuzz), and build-up of product on the skin.

Over time, dermaplaning can also minimise the appearance of pores and pigmentation. Our dermaplaning treatment also includes the use of AlumierMD products. It is important to note, that the hair DOES NOT grow back thicker or darker, but just as it was. The procedure can be performed monthly, with no downtime post-treatment.

This will vary slightly from client to client depending on their own hair growth cycle but this can be anywhere from 2-8 weeks, however we must never perform this treatment less than 4 weeks apart.

Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin so we must give the skin chance to rejuvenate otherwise we risk thinning your skin.

Quite the opposite, actually. A build-up of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause blemishes but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin. This is why exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.

We provide patients with comprehensive aftercare advice. We advise the following:

  • Wearing SPF 30+ daily as your skin may be sensitive to the sun.
  • It’s also recommended to take a break from using retinol products for 48 hours as they could irritate the skin.
  • Avoid sunbeds for 72 hours
  • Avoid sauna/steam room for 24 hours
  • No make up for 24 hours
  • No direct sunlight for 24 hours
  • Keep skin hydrated

Dr Claudia Petillon

There is increasing pressure on us these days to appear ‘ageless’ and conform to celebrity ideals and this in turn can lead to confidence issues which I all too often see as a doctor.

I truly believe in a ‘less is more’ philosophy and want to work with my clients to achieve a more youthful version of themselves whilst retaining their full range of expression and not giving them a mask like look. I want your friends to comment on how well you are looking but not be able to tell that you have had a cosmetic treatment (that’s a secret that you can choose to keep to yourself)!
