FAQ for Pregnancy Facials:


Skin Problems During Pregnancy - Sebaceous Glands

Whilst pregnant, your organism is actively producing increased amounts of oestrogens. We’ve mentioned before that oestrogen was found to benefit oily skin through decreasing the activity of sebaceous glands which produce sebum. However, we haven’t mentioned that if you have dry skin then you will have a more difficult time because of it. To prevent extreme dryness of your skin due to hormonal imbalance, we recommend using moisturising creams daily and use nutritious masks at least once in two weeks. It is also a good idea to buy a humidifier for your home. When noticing that your skin is becoming very dry during pregnancy you should also stop using scrubs and exfoliators at least for some time.


Skin Problems During Pregnancy - Redness and Visible Capillaries

Starting from the tenth week into pregnancy, the amount of circulating blood in the body of a pregnant woman increases by 30-40%. This means that blood vessels have to withstand a tremendous amount of pressure. This comes in especially difficult for the capillaries located close to the skin surface. They often get clogged up or even burst due to high pressure on their walls. The best and only solution for this would be to simply mask the redness with make-up. After giving birth, the problem may be solved with laser treatments but you should never carry out laser during pregnancy.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplane Facial  | $99 (75 min)

LIMITED TIME ONLY. INTRODUCTION SPECIAL $99. REGULAR $125


Slough off dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” for picture perfect skin. Dermaplaning and soothing finishing gel mask will leave your skin feeling like a movie star. This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. By removing that dead layer of skin and vellus hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.



Dermaplaning FAQ


What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to Microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A medical grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.

Not only does dermaplaning even out the texture of your skin, it helps make the colour appear smoother too. The process is beneficial for hyperpigmentation because it helps fend off the things in your body that inhibit production of melanin, which is what gives your skin its colour.


How Does Dermaplaning Work?

As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows skin care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores. Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have couperose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.


What Areas Can Be Treated?

Dermaplaning can be preformed on the face and neck.


Benefits Of Dermaplaning

The benefits of dermaplaning include: increased absorption of topical products, immediately diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, primes the skin for a chemical peel and creates a healthier, more radiant appearance.


How Many Sessions Are Recommended?

We recommend a series of six to eight sessions, up to four to six weeks apart.


Does It Hurt?

Dermaplaning is painless and is very similar to shaving any other part of your body.


Does The Hair Grow Back Thicker After Dermaplaning?

No, dermaplaning will not affect the thickness of your hair. Only a change in your hormones can alter your hair growth.
