Dermaplaning Facial Treatments in Cheltenham.

Everything you need to know.

Dermaplaning  facial treatments are an aesthetic treatment, available at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, which aims to make the surface of your skin smooth, radiant and youthful. Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and is commonly used to remove short, soft, fuzzy hairs on the face as well as improving the following skin conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Every day, your skin is exposed to toxins from the environment, irritants and sun damage. This can be combined with other skin conditions such as scars and wrinkles to make the top layer of your skin look dull, uneven and aged. Dermaplaning can clear away these damaged skin cells, making way for newer fresher skin.

Similar to other aesthetic skin treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, dermaplaning works by removing the top layers of the skin, in this case via an exfoliating blade. The blade, which is similar to a razor blade, is slowly moved over the skin to remove dead skin cells, scar tissue and other debris on the skin which makes the surface look uneven or dull.

There should be no pain during the treatment but you may feel a small tingling. Depending on which facial you have, treatment will take between half an hour to an hour.

Here at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, we offer three types of dermaplaning treatment:

Basic dermaplaning facial

During this treatment, your face will be cleansed and prepared, the dermaplaning will be carried out by our experienced aesthetic practitioner and then your face will be moisturised and spf applied to protect your skin from the sun following treatment.

Deluxe dermaplaning facial

This treatment involves everything in the basic dermaplaning facial, but with the addition of a hydration mask following the dermaplaning to further moisturise the skin and improve the texture and elasticity of the skin.

Premium dermaplaning facial

Our premium dermaplaning facial includes everything from the deluxe dermaplaning facial, but with the addition of LED light therapy following the hydration mask. LED light therapy is an award winning treatment which combines different wavelengths of light at therapeutic doses to naturally stimulate skin rejuvenation and resolve many skin conditions. Find out more about how LED light therapy works.

There is little to no downtime after a dermaplaning treatment and it is a low risk procedure, although it is important it is carried out by a trained and experienced aesthetic practitioner. The skin may be slightly red for a few hours following treatment and some people develop small whiteheads a few days after treatment but these will fade.

You will start to see results immediately following treatment and these will continue to be seen after a few days. The results aren’t permanent, lasting for around 1 month. It is important to protect your skin following dermaplaning as it will be extra sensitive to the sun, so wearing sunscreen on your face every time you leave the house following treatment is strongly advised.


How often should you have your face dermaplained?

Results of dermaplaning last around three to four weeks as each treatment aims to remove about three weeks worth of dead skin cells. During your consultation at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, your aesthetic practitioner will assess your skin and create a bespoke treatment plan for you.

Is dermaplaning the same as shaving?

Both treatments involve using a razor blade on the face but dermaplaning uses an exfoliating blade at a specified angle to slowly remove the layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.

Can dermaplaning be used as an anti-ageing treatment?

Dermaplaning can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles by removing the top layer of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning can also help to prevent wrinkles from occurring in the first place as by regularly removing dead skin cells and dirt your skin will stay refreshed and youthful for longer.

Is dermaplaning suitable for everyone?

Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, especially if you are suffering with dull skin, areas of dryness, acne scarring, wrinkles or sun damage. If you have very sensitive skin, particularly if you have rosacea, there may be more appropriate treatments for you. During your free consultation at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, your skin will be assessed by your aesthetic practitioner and a bespoke treatment plan created for you.
