Dermaplaning for skin rejuvenation

Dermaplaning, sometimes known as epidermal levelling or blading, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to make skin feel smoother, and to appear healthier and more youthful. Quick and relatively safe, this procedure can do wonders for your skin.

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair (peach fuzz), extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea. The dermaplaning treatment is done by an experienced aesthetician who uses a blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Hair returns softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment.

Dermaplaning or epidermal levelling utilises a sterile surgical blade called dermatome. The dermatome is carefully stroked over the skin in even motions. Blading the skin with a dermatome painlessly removes dry, dead surface skin to reveal new, healthy skin cells. Dermaplaning poses no serious side effects and patients can resume normal activities immediately following treatment.

What does dermaplaning treat?

Dermaplaning is recommended to treat dry, rough skin, acne scars, uneven skin tone, large pores, fine lines…even unwanted facial hair. Dermaplaning is a safe, effective treatment for overall skin rejuvenation. It can produce a smoother skin texture and clearer complexion, while minimising fine lines and minor scars. Since the Dermaplaning dermatome is a sharp blade, unwanted peach fuzz or whiskers may also be eliminated during the treatment. In this manner, Dermaplaning offers a rare combination of skin rejuvenation and facial hair removal benefits.

Acne scars and minor wrinkles can be minimised with Dermaplaning as the dermatome blade removes damaged epidermal skin. Since Dermaplaning removes dead skin more swiftly and cleanly than the natural shedding process allows, it can also trigger speedier skin cell turnover.

Reasons for choosing Dermaplaning:

  • Helps to remove light surface wrinkling and improves skin texture
  • Helps to unblock blackheads, making the pores appear smaller
  • Removes facial hair (hair does not grow back thicker)
  • Speeds up new healthy cell production
  • Helps with product absorption.
