What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

In a nutshell here are the benefits of dermaplaning:

  • refine pores
  • prevent acne breakouts
  • reduce congestion, milia and blackheads
  • reduce fine lines & depth of wrinkles
  • fade surface pigmentation
  • level out raised or pitted scarring
  • tighten the skin
  • brighten uneven skin
  • increase hydration
  • turn back the clock on aging
  • remove peach fuzz (no it will not grow back thicker)

Dermaplaning is, in my opinion, the most affordable skin resurfacing treatment to refine the texture of the skin. This is performed by using a single use, disposable blade to shave away multiple layers of dead, dull and aging skin cells. Don’t worry, this is a comfortable treatment that does not hurt and does not leave your skin striped or exposed.

By removing 10 – 16 layers of dead, surface skin cells you will find your serum and skincare actives can penetrate to the living skin cell layers of your skin to plump, enhance and prolong a healthy & youthful complexion. When you use reconstructive skincare like Eminence, Aspect or Germaine De Capuccini, your collagen and elastin levels will increase, over time, to lift, tighten and firm your skin.

Is Dermaplaning an option for all skin types?

Most skin types can benefit and tolerate dermaplaning or epi-blading with little to no downtime.  If you are prone to post exfoliation and post waxing hives, swelling or reactivity, I would suggest you have fruit acid skin peels instead of dermaplaning, or even microdermabrasion for that matter.

How often should I have Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is best performed every 4 – 6 weeks and most clinics will offer a discount if you purchase a package of 6 treatments.  Just be sure to ask as we all want you to get the best results and the best value for money from your in clinic treatments.

Do I need to use skincare when I have Dermaplaning treatments?

Yes.  If you want to get the best out of your dermaplaning treatments and skin care routine you will need to be using clinical grade, reconstructive skincare to continue the anti-aging and skin resurfacing at home. Wearing an SPF daily is vitally important to protect the fresh, healthy skin cells that have been revealed from your dermaplaning treatments.

Do I need to see a professional therapist for dermaplaning?

Yes. Never but your skin health in the hands of an unqualified or uncertified person.  It is important your practitioner performs a professional consultation and knows the pros and cons of dermaplaning before commencing treatment.
