Institute of Dermatologists clinic suite Dublin

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a form of mechanical exfoliation of the skin, whereby a sterile surgical blade is used to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells of the stratum corneum and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) to produce smoother, brighter skin.  

 Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin leaving it smooth, supple and vibrant.  It enhances the penetration of active ingredients of skin care products and creates a smooth canvas for makeup application for a smoother, more radiant look. It is very safe and even suitable for sensitive skin. It is great before a special event and very popular with our brides before their special day.

Dermaplaning in combination with Biologique Recherche Intensive Facials

We have carefully curated our dermaplane facials with scientifically-driven Biologique Recherche products and tailored techniques to produce the most polished and radiant skin possible for you.

Peel, Plane and Glow

We have a new treatment for the Cosmetic Suite -'Peel, Plane and Glow' - this includes Dermaplaning the skin - mechanically exfoliating the top layer of the epidermis and removing vellus hair. We then apply a PCA medical grade peel to the skin - causing a chemical reaction in the skin - speeding up cell turnover rate, improving glow, pore size, texture and pigment to the skin.

Lastly we microneedle Meso into the skin at a superficial depth. Hydraulic acid is the main ingredient in Meso, causing a plumping and hydrating effect to the skin.

30-35 min treatment: €350
