Founded in Sheffield during 1932, Swann-Morton have become a world leader in the manufacture of surgical blades, scalpels and handles. It is a name respected globally for quality, precision, consistency and reliability.
Although Swann Morton scalpels are the preferred choice of many of the world’s leading surgeons, within the beauty sector they are strictly used as a tool for Dermaplaning only.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis
Dermaplaning is a simple shaving of the epidermis.
Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects.
Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the therapist simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client healthier looking skin. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Your therapist may recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for medical procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It also may be used by therapists to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial.
Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles.
The beneficial end result is a more refined, smooth, more radiant appearance
