If your skin is looking a bit dull and dry and you are longing for smooth and radiant skin, then dermablading could be the treatment for you. Also known as dermaplaning or epidermal levelling, dermablading is an aesthetic form of shaving and exfoliating your face, however it’s not as scary as it sounds. And no, your facial hair does not grow back darker or thicker afterwards.

Dermablading involves the use of a sterile scalpel to gently exfoliate away the dead skin cells from the face as well as remove vellus hairs, also known as peach fuzz. The result is fresh, glowing, smooth skin! At Appearance Clinic in Essendon we take a personalised approach to every treatment to ensure you optimum results.


Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of dermablading?

Dermablading is used to reveal radiant skin, smooth out unevenness, improve circulation and remove fine hairs, particularly around the neck and chin area. By removing those fine facial hairs, oil and debris is less likely to get trapped on the skin. This treatment offers you a smooth and clear complexion, making makeup application easier and foundation sits on the skin perfectly.

Can anyone have dermablading treatment?

This treatment is suitable for all skin types, except for those with active acne. It’s ideal for anyone wanting smoother skin or a brighter, glowing complexion. As it does not involve any active ingredients or medical devices such as laser, it is suitable for sensitive skin types and those who are breastfeeding or who are pregnant.

Does the hair grow back thicker?

No, dermablading does not cause your facial hair to grow back darker or thicker as it targets only the vellus hair, not terminal hair.

What happens during treatment and is it painful?

The treatment is not painful, it feels similar to shaving. First, your skin will be assessed by one of our skin experts, then your skin will be thoroughly cleansed. A sterile scalpel is then used in strokes along the skin to gently remove dead skin cells, debris and vellus hairs. Treatment takes approximately 40 minutes.

What can I expect after treatment?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. You will immediately notice smooth, supple, radiant skin. Do not exfoliate for several days following treatment and avoid sun exposure. You can expect your makeup to glide on smoothly and effortlessly.
