Adonia Dermaplaning


At Adonia Medical Clinic we are proud to provide our patients with the most advanced treatments in skincare and skin renewal such as Adonia Dermaplaning. This skin rejuvenating treatment leaves your skin feeling fresh and smooth after treatment. Derma-planing is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. Come in for a dermaplaning treatment at our Maida Vale office and you’ll walk out with skin that is completely revitalised!

The Most Innovative Skin Care Treatments in London

Dr. Ejikeme is committed to using the safest and most advanced technology in order to best treat her patient’s skin. All skincare treatments are customised so that each patient can achieve optimal results. A pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Ejikeme will ultimately determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.

The Adonia Dermaplaning Advanced Technology

The Blade: Dermaplaning gives skin a fresh, smooth appearance due to the sterile aesthetician-grade blade that is used during the procedure. The blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.

Advanced Exfoliation: This type of exfoliation removes dead skin cells, allowing home care products to be more effective. In addition, dermaplaning exfoliation can also:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Even skin tone
  • Assist in reducing milia
  • Treat closed and open comedones
  • Reduce minor breakouts associated with congested pores

Another exciting aspect of Adonia Dermaplaning is that it can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that previously have been unable to have similar treatments due to couperose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels. It is also important to note that due to the contours of the face, certain areas of the face (such as the eyelids and nose) are not treatable using this method.

Expert Analysis at Our Maida Vale Skin Clinic

After confirming that patients are appropriate candidates for dermaplaning, Dr. Ejikeme ensures that optimal results are obtained by having the patient participate in a series of treatments, in addition to following a specifically designed home care regimen. Dr. Ejikeme uses her medical training and expertise to assess your current daily regimen and then advise you on any changes that should be made to improve the health of your skin.

Excellent Care Before, During and After Treatment

Dr. Ejikeme and her team’s goal is to optimize results and along with patient satisfaction. To ensure this, certain measures are taken before, during and after the treatment:

  • Before: The procedure is explained to the patient and the corresponding forms are signed. The patient’s skin is then thoroughly cleansed and completely dried.
  • During: The number 14 scalpel blade is held at a 45° angle while the skin is abraded with precise movements in the opposite direction of hair growth. Once the entire area has been treated, a 20% glycolic acid can is applied to the skin (adequate skin preparation prior to treatment needed for Fitzpatrick 3-6).
  • After: While some patients may experience excessive dryness or even some peeling between sessions, this usually subsides with 2 or 3 hours after the treatment. More sensitive skin may have some redness after the first couple of sessions, which usually goes away quickly as well. Dermaplaning may cause minor superficial abrasions, which may not appear until a day or two following your treatment. Aerobic exercise or vigorous physical activity should be avoided until all redness has subsided. Further after care includes using a post treatment cleanser twice daily, followed by a serum or treatment cream. Dr. Ejikeme also strongly recommends using SPF 30+ at all times for a minimum of two weeks. In addition, direct sunlight exposure and tanning beds should be completely avoided immediately following treatment.
