Dermaplaning is the must have treatment amongst celebrities, models and actresses. Dermaplaning is a great method for exfoliation, removing of dulling dead skin cells and a great way to revive the skin giving it a smoother, brighter complexion.

Backed by our expert training from the nationally recognised Dermaplane UK Aesthetics we are able to offer three core Dermaplaning treatments at The Jacalyn James Skin Clinic in Plymouth.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair. It has been used for many years and has recently become very popular with our customers. Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects. Using a scalpel and delicate touch, the technician simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.

This treatment is perfect for customers who are pregnant or nursing and wish to have a deep exfoliation but are not allowed to use peeling agents on the skin. It is also amazing for those who have excess vellus hair on the skin.


Is Dermaplaning good for your skin?

Dermaplaning aims to remove fine hairs and make the skin’s surface as smooth as possible. It has very few risks and is performed by a skin care specialist.


Is it dangerous? Will it hurt?

No, you can basically compare it to shaving your legs and is painless. Our team is full trained with many years of experience so you’re in safe hands.


How often should I have Dermaplaning done?

Recommended for all skin types except those with acne. It is a great addition to a Skin Peel treatment also available at the Jacalyn James Clinic.

Dermaplaning Treatment FAQ

Abigail is a certified Advanced Dermaplane UK Platinum Technician. This means that she has undergone advanced training at a Dermaplane UK Training Centre and is now an elite trained technician to the highest standards.

Plymouth currently has only a select few technicians trained to this standard.

Dermaplaning is an effective and safe exfoliation procedure. It uses a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin to remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. The tool is held at a 45 degree angle and is brushed along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells.  The procedure is only performed on the face and is not used for shaping the eyebrows, which the hair is much thicker. It is generally a stand alone procedure, but it does create deeper product penetration boosting the products effects. The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduces the appearance of acne scars.

  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”*
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types* Instant results and no downtime

Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks. It is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle, which is thirty days, before going back and having the treatment done. The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area.

People who suffer from acne or have excess oil should not have dermaplaning performed.  The reason why you want to avoid this procedure is because if the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could lead to acne breakout

Sometimes after dermaplaning, the skin will end up peeling slightly. This normally only happens when there is not enough time in between treatments to let the hair’s growth cycle be completed.  This is why it is important to leave enough time between visits to get the best results.

There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker. Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peachfuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and color. It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry.

Never do this procedure at home. Leave it to the professionals  to ensure a safe and effective treatment.  If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or just learning more about dermaplaning or any of our other treatments please call today.

No shaving, laser treatment, peels, waxing or aggressive exfoliators one week prior to treatment. You should wait 14 days after receiving Botox or dermal fillers to receive a Dermaplaning treatment Please let the salon know if you break out in a cold sore as treatment would need to be rearranged. Please let salon know if you are on any medication for your skin prior to treatment

A very friendly and professional Salon. I have had facials with Abigail for the last year and my skin has never looked better. Abigail is very knowledgeable about products used and products needed for maintenance. I also have HD Brows with Jasmine who is not only friendly but brilliant at understanding how my brows should look without overpowering my face. I would highly recommend this Salon for their expertise. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Happy Client.
