Following the successful debut of BeautyLab’s Dermaplaning training workshops earlier this month at Gerrard International, demand is at an all-time high for this popular advanced skin treatment. Later this year and early next, Nicola Russell aka The Skin Geek will be back to lead further Dermaplaning training sessions.
As a celebrity facialist and international trainer, Scottish-born Nicola Russell is responsible for the Dermaplaning boom in the UK and throughout Europe, having trained over 750 students.
A highly in-demand rejuvenating treatment with no downtime, Dermaplaning involves a single surgical blade that gently smooths the epidermal (surface) layer of skin by removing dead skin cells and fine downy ‘vellus’ hair. It is also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant. It’s great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients in the BeautyLab professional and home care products (according to Nicola the absorption rate is increased by 60%). It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment for high profile occasions.
Hair does not grow back stubbly, because Dermaplaning targets vellus hair, the ‘peach fuzz’ found on our cheeks or around the hairline, distinctly different to the dark, thick terminal hair, which grows on our heads, underarms and pubic area.
The Dermaplaning workshops run for Gerrard International customers incorporating the professional, results-driven, high performance active ingredients of BeautyLab’s Glycolic and Black Diamond ranges, to cleverly trigger the cell regeneration process and enhance the glowing, baby-soft skin-results of the treatment.
