Dermaplaning is performed using a scalpel to manually exfoliate dead skin cells from the face. It is a physical exfoliation method that requires the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the top layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, dead skin layer, and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin.
By removing that dead layer and hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.
- It painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum to stimulate cellular turnover with little to no downtime.
- It is a great option for clients with sensitive skin and pregnant women who are looking for a deep exfoliation.
- It can be performed prior to treatments like facials, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels for better product penetration.
- It can be performed frequently.
- It helps makeup go on smoother and more evenly.
- It can help significantly lighten postinflammatory scars from past acne.
- It does not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.
- The results will not be as long-lasting as other hair-removal methods, such as waxing, as the hair is not removed from the root.
- Results will differ depending on a your individual hair-growth cycle.
- Not everyone is a candidate. Clients with active and cystic acne should avoid this type of hair removal, as it can cause further irritation. Also, it is contraindicated for clients with hirsutism, a condition of excessive male-pattern hair growth in women.

LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive facial treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore skin’s radiance.
LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific skin benefits. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.
The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, or, in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair.
WHAT IS DIAMOND PEEL?
A Diamond Peel is a mechanical exfoliation that removes excess oil, dirt, and dead cells on the surface of the skin to reveal younger, brighter skin. This non-invasive treatment can improve the appearance of fine wrinkles and lines, even out patchy complexion, and reduce mild to moderate acne breakouts.
HOW DOES THE DIAMOND PEEL WORK?
A diamond peel removes the stratum corneum, the layer of dead skin cells that make up the uppermost layer of the epidermis. The Diamond Peel uses an abrasive diamond tip that gently loosens the dead cells, dirt, and debris while the wand’s suction function vacuums them away simultaneously.
BENEFITS OF THE DIAMOND PEEL
Flexible enough to treat problem areas such as crow’s feet, lip wrinkles and around the nose
Refreshes dull skin
Sloughs away dead skin cells
The Diamond Peel is painless. You can apply makeup and resume normal daily activities directly afterwards. Potential side effects are minor, such as mild redness, which last for a few hours. Use sunscreen and limit sun exposure.
Clients with acne or recently shaved skin might experience very slight bleeding with the treatment. Those with inflamed acne or other broken skin conditions should not undergo Diamond Peel. The Epiderma5 is a more suitable option for inflamed acne.
We also offer more traditional facials, using results driven products and specialist facial massage techniques.
Our skin care specialist will have a full consultation with you and provide a professional cleanse, tone and moisturise treatment in accordance with your requirements.
