Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are two popular facial treatments that are often used to improve the texture and tone of the skin. Both treatments involve exfoliation, but there are some key differences between the two.

Microdermabrasion uses a specialised device to gently sand the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the healthy, radiant skin underneath. It's a great option for those with rough, uneven skin texture, as it can help to smooth and soften the skin.

Dermaplaning, on the other hand, uses a fine blade to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz. This treatment can improve the skin's texture and tone, and it's also great for those with sensitive skin, as it's a gentle and non-invasive procedure.

Some of the benefits of microdermabrasion include improved skin texture and tone, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a smoother and more radiant complexion. The outcomes you can expect from this treatment include a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion and a smoother skin texture.

The benefits of dermaplaning include improved skin texture and tone, a smoother and more radiant complexion, and a better application and absorption of skincare products. The outcomes you can expect from this treatment include a smoother, brighter complexion and a more even skin tone.

Overall, both microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are effective facial treatments that can improve the appearance of the skin. The best option for you will depend on your specific skin concerns and goals.

Before beginning any treatment I always assess your skin's health and whether it will benefit from the treatment.  Optimising your skin's health is my primary goal.  Client's will tell you that I'll decline a treatment if I don't think your skin is ready.  If you're unsure which will suit your skin book a facial. The time required for the treatments is the same so that need not be a consideration.  We will do what is best for your skin on that day.
