So, dermaplaning involves a surgical blade being scraped all over the skin! You need to be sure you’re in safe hands and that the equipment is of the highest quality, right?
Well, you can relax.Glow & skinhas sourced and selected the best dermaplaning tools making sure the treatment is safe and effective.
Thedermaplaning bladesare individually packaged and made of sterile premium carbon steel. The blades are single-use, so they will only be used once and stay sharp throughout the procedure. The tips are curved for extra comfort and to ensure every part of the face can be reached, so nothing is missed giving perfect results every time. The blade handles are ergonomic and comfortable to work with.
TheGlow & Skin multipurpose balmhas been specifically formulated to work with the dermaplaning equipment. It provides the necessary glide and slip to ensure a safe treatment and avoid injury with the blade.
Dermaplaningwithout a balm will create friction, increasing the risk of cutting and abrading the skin, making it sensitive, and increasing redness and skin rashes, which can take several days to settle. Clients with dry skin are more likely to experience sensitivity, so the treatment would have higher risks if a balm was not used and more uncomfortable.
Dermaplaningon dry skin will create ‘drag’, which is particularly dangerous when treating mature clients or areas of loose baggy skin.
Soya wax is packed with vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant that locks in moisture. Extra vitamin E is added to increase its anti-inflammatory properties and help protect the skin from sun damage.
The balm has a silky-smooth texture and feels beautiful with a rich blend of sunflower, sweet almond, calendula, and grape oils. Collectively these oils are soothing and provide anti-oxidant protection.
Calendula oil has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. It can be used as a natural antiseptic, making it ideal for dermaplaning treatment.
A blend of shea and seed butter softens, naturally moisturises and hydrates the skin, protecting it from damage and environmental pollutants. They both have anti-inflammatory properties ensuring the skin is not sensitised or irritated by the treatment.
