Dermaplaning in Perth at Restoration Clinic – What Exactly Is It?
We all covet beautiful, radiant skin. Women and men often turn to skincare products such as serums, creams and masks to improve their skin’s appearance. While these products work well to cleanse and moisturise your skin, there are some advanced treatments that can only be experienced at the hands of an experienced aesthetician, such as dermaplaning. Perth residents can achieve softer and smoother skin in less than an hour. Thus, if you’re seeking a radiant glow for a special occasion then this unique beauty treatment is perfect for you.
What exactly is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning, also known as epi blading in Perth, is a very popular skincare treatment in the beauty industry today. Think of it as a completely new way to exfoliate your skin. A sterile surgical blade gently scrapes the skin’s surface to remove layers of dead skin cells along with any unwanted fine hair. It helps to smooth away dullness revealing a brighter, more vibrant complexion. Dermatologists like to do this treatment when they need their products to penetrate better and makeup artists recommend it to their celebrity patients when they want to achieve flawless makeup application before the red carpet. It can be done prior to skin needling to shorten recovery time or before LED therapies for a more enhanced and luminous glow. Now dermaplaning is available to everyone.
How does dermaplaning in Perth work?
Dermaplaning takes approximately half an hour to complete and based on your cycle of hair growth, it’s recommended to have this treatment every four weeks to maintain the results. It’s also important that you don’t try this at home – this procedure takes careful precision. Only a licensed professional like a member of our team here at our Perth Restoration Clinic should carry out your treatment.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
1. It exfoliates the skin, leaving it soft and smooth
2. It removes any fine hair known as peach fuzz
3. It allows skincare products to penetrate better
4. It helps makeup stay fresher all day on smoother skin
5. It saves you money as less product is required
Additionally, dermaplaning in Perth is a great treatment for dry, rough skin and it also helps to improve skin texture, mild scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and reduces pore size.
Another benefit is that there’s minimal downtime with this treatment; you can have epi-blading done on your lunch break and be able to apply your usual beauty products or makeup straight away (however it’s recommended that you wait a couple of hours).
In case you’re wondering whether dermaplaning will cause facial hair to grow back thicker, the answer is no. Epi-blading doesn’t cause the hair to grow back darker or coarser. However re-growth might feel a little different after this treatment due to the angle at which the hair was removed.
What’s the difference between dermaplaning and shaving?
Furthermore, shaving with blunt razors in a home environment can be harsh on the skin. Sometimes shaving is carried out in a rush or with bad lighting resulting in lacklustre results. Epi-blading, on the other hand, is performed by a trained expert at our clinic so you get an optimal outcome every time. Are you curious about the price of dermaplaning in Perth? Cost of treatment can vary but it’s a safer option than buying over-the-counter razors to shave your face at home.
After treatment, your skin will be more at risk from any UV radiation exposure, so it’s important that you protect your skin by avoiding direct sun exposure (including sunbeds) for at least 5-10 days and use sun protection with SPF 30 or higher.
It’s also recommended that Perth patients avoid other facial treatments or hair removal, such as waxing or peels for 7-14 days and do no exfoliating for at least 3-5 days. If you develop irritation or scabbing after your dermaplaning session, call us and we’ll be happy to advise you further.
