Dermaplaning at ChrysalisWoman

Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Our ChrysalisWoman aesthetician uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions using light feathering strokes.


Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure without the adverse effects associated with procedures such as peels, it has quickly gained popularity in the UK and it is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child.

Dermaplaning is also the go to choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin as the hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles with can cause acne, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

Chrysalis Woman is a specialist in the beauty industry and our professional therapists and stylists work within the very relaxing environment of our brand new, state of the art salon in Church Street, Blackburn.

How to prepare for our St. Tropez Salon Spray Tan

For a flawless finish, there’s nothing quite like a professional touch – that’s why our salon treatments are as popular as ever and if you have just booked an appointment, or are wondering how to prepare for an appointment before booking, this handy guide should answer all of your questions.

However, please call the salon direct should you have any questions this guide doesn’t cover!

Spray tan treatment

The St. Tropez Spray Tan Treatment is the quickest way to get a professional finish. Delivered in around 15 minutes, the spray is quick drying and now features Aromaguard™ fragrance technology which eliminates the tell-tale self tan aroma by a minimum of 70%.

Before treatment advice: 

•Skin should be free from self tan, perfume, deodorant and aromatherapy oils

•Waxing or shaving should be completed at least 24 hours prior to the treatment

•The evening or morning before your treatment, exfoliate your entire body with St. Tropez Body Polish. Pay special attention to dry areas of your body such as hands, elbows, knees and feet

•Wear dark, loose fitting clothing with dark coloured underwear. The guide colour may stain light hair, man-made fibres and wool

•We recommend you have a patch test prior to every treatment

After treatment advice: 

•Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 4 hours after your treatment

•Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the treatment

•The guide colour can be left on overnight although it may transfer onto bed linen. It will wash out of cotton, but not so easily from man-made fibres or wool

Keep your tan looking gorgeous for longer: 

•Apply St. Tropez Body Moisturiser or St. Tropez Body Butter daily

•Exfoliate your skin with St. Tropez Body Polish every 2-3 days to ensure even fading

•After showering pat the skin dry rather than rubbing

•Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the tan

St. Tropez salon treatments offer a professional and flawless tan and St. Tropez is the first choice of professionals the world over because every product is created to deliver a beautiful even tan, every time.

In-Excess Trend from Joico

Bold sex appeal, extreme luxury and edgy glamor are back—in a BIG way!

After more than two decades of subtlety and minimalism, In-Excess, Joico‘s new trend collection, heralds a return to the extravagance of the 1980s. But rather than reproduce the past, Joico International Artistic Directors Damien Carney and Sue Pemberton did as many fashion designers did for their spring 2014 collections and cleverly reinvented the most defining trends of “the decade of excess” for a new era.

“The goal wasn’t to create a retrospective of past trends, but instead be inspired by the more-is-better attitude of the time,” said Carney. “It was as if no one ever questioned, ‘is this too much?’ That’s the spirit that drove this collection.”
Styling-wise, retro hair trends such as skyscraper bangs, extreme texture and a Flock of Seagulls-like fringe were also given a 21st-century makeover, proving that with ingenuity, everything old can be made new again.

For the color, Pemberton, fresh from her second NAHA win, found inspiration in the bold, bright hairstyles of the MTV generation – Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and Boy George, just to name a few.


There’s nothing in the world like the beauty of healthy hair. Its vitality, color and shine have a radiance that can’t be ignored, the way it lights up a room, lifts the spirit, and the spirit of others. We have a name for this remarkable energy, we call it “joi”.
Somewhere along the way, through all the cuts and colors, bangs and blowouts, hair starts to lose its joi, because what makes us happy about our hair, and what makes hair happy, can be two different things.

At Joico and Official Stockist Chrysalis Woman they don’t have to be, healthy hair is happy hair!
