Dermablading – also called epidermal levelling or dermaplaning – is an innovative technique for exfoliating and rejuvenating the skin.
Using a special surgical instrument, we remove the very fine facial hairs and dead cells on the surface of the skin, to give you a fresher, smoother appearance.
Dermablading is suitable for all skin types and tones, is safe and causes little or no pain. It is the right option for those looking for a non-invasive procedure for treating skin problems.
To make sure the treatment is safe and does not damage the underlying skin tissue, it should only be carried out by a trained, experienced professional in a clinical environment, such as here at Stratford Dermatherapy Clinic.
How does dermablading work?
Facial hairs can capture dead skin cells, oil and debris, which may cause your complexion to become dull and lifeless.
During the dermablading procedure, we use a device with a very fine sterile blade to remove these hairs, along with the top layer of dead skin cells.
Epidermal levelling minimises pore blockage and encourages the production of collagen and elastin. It can also eliminate several skin imperfections and conditions, and treat skin damaged by acne and bacterial infection.
A further benefit of dermablading is that it increases the skin’s ability to absorb active nutrients.
The result is rejuvenated skin that looks vibrant and healthy.
What to expect during your treatment
At the start of the procedure, we apply a cleanser to the areas of your face being treated.
We then carefully scrape the surface of the clean, dry skin with the specially-designed surgical scalpel. The blade moves gently over the skin in a sweeping motion. Holding the skin taut, we apply pressure evenly to avoid causing any damage to the skin’s surface.
The procedure usually takes about 45 minutes. It’s not painful, so you shouldn’t need an analgesic.
Aftercare and further treatments
Dermablading epidermal levelling needs little or no down time. But, to maximise results long-term, it’s important to provide ongoing care for your skin.
As the procedure removes the top skin layer, the lower layers are more able to absorb moisturizers and other nutrients.
We recommend you continue to use facial moisturizers and other quality skin care products, including sunscreen with 30+ SPF, to reduce the chance of skin problems re-occurring.
For best results, we usually recommend up to 4 or 5 treatments, with one treatment session a month to allow the top layer of skin time to grow back.
You can combine your monthly treatment with a regular skincare regime to help you maintain problem-free skin.
Treatments to combine with dermablading
During your consultation for dermablading, we can recommend a program that combines others treatments that are suitable for your skin.
- a mild chemical peel such as glycolic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid and salicylic acid peels: the peel penetrates the surface of the skin to help teat fine lines, age-spots, unusual pigmentation, sun damage and acne
- radiofrequency skin rejuvenation, a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that stimulates the production of thicker, stronger strands of collagen to help to tone and tighten the skin
- CO2 laser, for treating rosacea, spider veins, skin blemishes and age-spots.
