Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning, or ‘epidermal levelling’, is a fast, safe, non-invasive treatment which can improve many skin conditions.

Dermaplaning treatment is performed using a blade to gently exfoliate the skin. It removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, along with fine facial hair commonly known as ‘peach fuzz’ or vellus hair. The treatment removes the hair gently and safely without stimulating hair growth.

This exfoliating treatment is an great complement to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea. It immediately leaves the skin feeling smooth, supple and vibrant.

Perth Dermaplaning Treatment

Dermaplaning is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade. The blade is held against the skin at a 45-degree angle and is stroked gently along the skin to remove the outermost layers of dead cells.

A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Dermaplaning effectively:

  • Improves skin texture
  • Lightens uneven hyperpigmented skin for a more even skin tone
  • Unblocks blackheads, making pores appear smaller
  • Smooths acne scarring
  • Boosts the effectiveness of skincare product absorption

At Assure, we recommend a monthly dermaplaning session, which includes the blading treatment and a light enzyme peel.

All skin types can be treated with dermaplaning, including sensitive skin. Dermaplaning is an excellent option for acne-prone skin, as long as there are no active lesions present.

Dermaplaning is not suitable for you if you have any of the following:

  • Active acne
  • Bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting
  • Diabetes that is not under the control of medication or diet
  • Skin cancers, cold sores/herpes, keloid scarring or eczema
  • Cancer that is undergoing treatment, including chemotherapy or radiation

Deramplaning is safely performed by using a specialised sterile surgical instrument. Following preparation, the skin is held tight and using a gentle scraping method at an angle of 45 degrees, the outermost dead skin layer is scrapped off.

The treatment is only performed on the face.

Dermaplaning should only be undertaken by a qualified dermal therapist who has been professionally trained in the treatment. Speak to us to find out more about our training and treatment standards at Assure.

After your Perth dermaplaning treatment, your skin may feel tight or warm, similar to a mild wind or sunburn. Slight redness and dryness can also be expected in some cases, but subsides within 24 hours.

Fine facial hair (vellus hair) is removed as part of the dermaplaning blading treatment. You can expect this hair to naturally grow back blunt-ended, however the hair will not be darker or denser.

A dermaplaning treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, which includes the blading process, followed by a light enzyme peel.

The treatment can be repeated every 3-4 weeks.
