Dermaplaning Aftercare

Use a gentle cleanser and apply moisturiser at least twice daily for a minimum of 7 days post treatment.  Rinse skin gently and pat dry.  Avoid rough towels/flannels.

Avoid sun exposure as must as possible and if you are in the sun, wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses and seek shade when possible.  An SPF30 (Winter) SPF50 (Spring/Summer/Autumn) MUST be applied daily 2 weeks post treatment.

I am also a stockist of Heliocare 360 and SPF50 is available to buy to take home with you straight from your treatment, or buy direct here.

Avoid excessive heat for 3 days post treatment, incl heavy workouts, sauna, steam room, ironing and any other burst of heat to the face.

Avoid chlorine for 24 hours.

No waxing in the area for 7 days.

No Dermal Fillers or Botox for 2 weeks post treatment.  No acid peels or any other facials for 4 weeks.

Do not pick, scratch or aggressively rub the area.

No scrubs, polishers, exfoliators, cleansing brushes should be used for 2 weeks post treatment.  No AHA, Retinol, Vitamin A, Tea Tree products to be applied to the skin.

Please also give your phone a wipe post treatment as bacteria on the surface will transfer to the face.  It is advisable to also change your pillowcase.

You may experience slight peeling in the first few days, this is completely normal.  Slight windburn/sunburn sensation and/or blotchiness are normal in the first few days.  Skin care may tingle.  Serums/facial oils are encouraged to be used as the absorption levels will be elevated.

For best and longer lasting results I recommend Dermaplaning to be carried out no less than 4 weeks apart.
