CliniCare Dermaplaning Facial
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a facial treatment preformed using a scalpel to manually exfoliate dead skin cells and vellus hair (also know as peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. It triggers the cell regenerating process which helps improve, soften and smooth the appearance of acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. Having Vellus hair and dead skin removed can allow makeup to sit more smoothly, product penetration is maximised more deeply into the skins layers. This means your skincare products will work more effectively. It also boosts blood circulation and gives skin more light refraction which delivers an instant glow and plumping effect to the skin.
Does it cause your hair to grow back thicker?
No No No. Your hair will grow back exactly the same colour and thickness as it was previously as we are only removing vellus hair and not terminal hair ( which is on your head, mens faces, legs, underarms). Your hair follicle has a structure which cannot be changed by just simply shaving some off your peach fuzz.
Is it painful?
Dermaplaning is totally pain free.
Is it suitable for everyone?
All skin types can benefits from dermaplaning. Typically clients over 30 are the best candidates. Warning – it is highly addictive! Men can also be dermaplaned on areas with no hair.
This facial is not suitable for clients:
- have active acne breakouts
- have diabetes that’s not under control by diet or medication
- are undergoing cancer treatment
- have active cold sores
- under 18 years
Will is cause spots?
The exact opposite actually, dermaplaning exfoliates the skin, it removes dead skin cells, oils and dirt which can block pores and lead to blemishes. If you remove that layer of dead skin and built-up debris it will help alleviate congestion.
How often should I have this treatment?
3-4 weeks. Having a dermaplaning treatment removes 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.
What is the downtime?
No downtime. You will walk out glowing. We do advise to no sun and always sun protection, no makeup for 24 hours, no excessive heat or sweating.
DMK Enzyme Therapy Treatment
This is the incredible “Plasmatic effect” from DMK’s unique Oxygen Therapy. You can actually see the capillaries opening up, pumping more blood, oxygen & nutrients into the skin, as well as carrying away impurities. Real Oxygen Therapy from the inside out!
You have to see it to believe it. DMK’s botanical-based paramedical products work on all skin types. Enzymes are nature’s own biological catalysts, which hydrolyse dead skin cells. DMK Skin products are transdermal. They use chemistry that the skin recognises, which allows them to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Skin tightening and toning is noticeable after the very first treatment.
What to expect
DMK is NOT your typical facial.
Once the DMK enzyme treatment has been applied to your face, neck and décolletage it will start to harden … kind of like cement. Eventually it completely tightens on your skin while you lie on one of our super soft treatment beds for around 45 minutes. It may be a surprising feeling at first but soon you may enjoy the satisfying feeling of those cosmeceutical enzymes and botanicals getting to work! You can feel the result before you even see it. There’s nothing like it.
Whats happening to my skin?
DMK enzyme therapy creates a “reverse osmosis” action. It is a back flushing action which forces fluid through the membranes around the cells flushing out impurities. It does this by utilising transfer messenger enzymes. These are cells that communicate with each other, increasing circulation and delivery fresh, oxygenated blood to the skin. You’re left with a clean, clear, healthy environment for cells to thrive and function at an optimal level.
Who’s it for?
DMK enzyme therapy has a multitude of benefits in treating ALL skin conditions. When your skin is showing something up such as acne, rosacea, dehydrated dry skin, pigmentation, enlarged pores – it is a sign of imbalance in the skin. DMK doesn’t work on the surface of the skin to treat these symptoms. It works at a much deeper cellular level to treat the imbalance.
What should I expect after my treatment?
DMK enzyme therapy cannot “take 10 years off your life”. That is impossible. What it can do is return your skin to it’s genetic potential.
What does this mean? You have patches of skin on your body (the skin under your upper arm near your armpit is a good place to see this) which has not been as affected environmentally as your face. DMK therapy can treat your skin, returning it to it’s genetic potential – that is, the same condition as your unexposed skin.
Immediately after your treatment comes off there will be a visible effect called “plasmatic effect”. It kind of looks like you can see the blood running along your veins under your skin. This is an awesome sight to see but don’t worry – it quickly fades. What it means is that at that moment your skin has achieved homeostasis or perfect balance.
Do I need more than one?
A course of 3 is preferred to get the best result possible for your skin.
