DERMAPLANING / EPI-BLADING / EPIDERMAL LEVELING
Remove dead skin cells and "peach fuzz" hair from your face.
Decongest and leave smooth, even skin.
Dermaplaning, also known as epi-blading or epidermal levelling, uses an exfoliating blade to gently remove the top layers of the skin, erasing dead skin cells and hair from your face. It is a great treatment to decongest and resurface your skin to leave it looking smooth, even and soft.
Dermaplaning is the ideal treatment for:
"Peach fuzz" facial hair
Tired or dull-looking skin
Benefits of dermaplaning
Revitalise your skin
Gently scrape away dead skin cells and hair to stimulate new cell growth and rejuvenated skin below with epiblading.
Improve skin tone and clarity
Dermaplaning decongests and resurfaces your skin for a smooth, even and soft result, leaving your skin bright and refreshed.
Target scarring and sun damage
Regenerate your skin to prevent outbreaks of acne, erase scarring, and minimise the effects of sun damage and debris.
How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning, also known as epi-blading or epidermal levelling, involves gliding a small sterile blade over the skin at a 45 degree angle, exfoliating dead cells scarring, and other pollutants and debris on your skin’s surface to make way for new cells. This regeneration helps to achieve a brighter, more youthful look. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is not painful.
- Keep skin free of makeup on the day of your treatment.
- If you have an active acne flare-up on the day of your treatment, you may need to reschedule to avoid further irritating the acne.
Following the treatment, it's important to limit sun exposure, as sun damage can reverse the effects of dermaplaning (epi-blading) and create blotchy pigmentation on your skin. You must protect your skin with sunscreen whenever you leave the house in the weeks following your treatment.
- Always wear sunscreen, protective clothing such as a hat, and limit sun exposure.
- When cleansing, do not scrub and use a gentle cleanser.
- Do not peel, pick or scratch the treated area as this may result in scarring.
Following pre- and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Your clinician will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might impact you. This is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include:
- Slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment.
- Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.
- Infection and scarring are rare, but they can occur. If you develop a scar, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.
- Another possible side effect is a patchy skin pigment in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.
