Dermaplaning is a flexible treatment that can combat various skin concerns. It removes skin debris such as dead skin cells, bacteria, and ‘peach fuzz’ from the face to uncover your fresh, healthy skin beneath. At Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne, we offer this quality treatment to help patients achieve healthier skin and a natural, enhanced glow.

Every day, exposure to toxins and UV rays can adversely affect the skin. This, as well as a build-up of dead cells, can leave the top layer of skin looking dull and in need of a boost. To have clear, healthy skin, it is vital to regularly remove debris that builds upon the surface.

Dermaplaning, sometimes called epiblading, is designed to remove dead skin cells and bacteria from the epidermis (surface layer of skin). The treatment also removes the fine vellus hairs or ‘peach fuzz’ that commonly grow on the cheeks, chin, and upper lip. It can treat a variety of texture and complexion issues to restore the skin to a fresher and more youthful state.

How dermaplaning works

When skin becomes dull or damaged, removing the dead surface layer is often all that is needed to give the face a refreshed look and feel. Dermaplaning treatments can be ideal for people seeking a gentle and non-invasive method for improving their skin’s health. By promoting healthy stimulation of the natural systems in the skin, you can achieve brighter and clearer skin.

Skin levelling is a manual exfoliation procedure. It uses a straight edge blade or scalpel at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the skin while removing fine vellus hairs. The treatment includes a deep cleanse, epidermal levelling to remove dead skin build-up and fine vellus hairs, and an oxygen treatment mask to brighten, soothe, and boost skin oxygen levels. The exfoliating effects are similar to microdermabrasion but without the negative pressure.

By scraping off a surface layer of dead skin cells, build-up, and vellus hairs, the treatment works to uncover the fresh, healthy skin beneath the surface.

The benefits

There are many benefits of dermaplaning. It can treat several skin concerns, including:


Fine Lines & Wrinkles




Dry Skin




Sun Spots




Acne Scars



It can also address:

  • Dry or rough skin
  • Fine, vellus hair growth
  • Slow cell turnover rate
  • Dull or uneven skin

Regular treatments can help the skin stay smooth and clear. By removing the surface build-up and increasing the skin’s collagen, the treatment will assist your skin in staying bright, healthy, and youthful. This can help combat skin sagging, wrinkling, and other signs of aging.

Along with these benefits, treatments also allow for better infusion of skincare products and a smoother makeup application.

Dermaplaning treatment costs in Melbourne

Before your treatment, you should understand the costs. The price of your treatment may depend on where you live and which clinic you choose. It can also depend on whether you have the treatment on its own or combined with other procedures. During a discussion with our friendly staff, we will speak about your skin needs and develop a treatment plan. This will allow us to give you a more precise idea of your costs.

When thinking about costs, you should also consider that the results of your treatment will fade over time. This means that you may require further sessions to maintain clear, fresh skin.

Ideal candidates for dermaplaning

Dermaplaning treatments can suit both men and women, with various skin types and conditions. Anyone seeking to improve the overall tone and texture of their facial skin may be a good candidate.

The treatment is ideal for waxing clients and clients with vellus hair, congestion and milia. It can also have great results for people with dead skin build-up and dull skin. As well as this, it can be ideal for clients seeking to increase the intensity of skin peels or pregnant women seeking to reduce facial hair growth resulting from hormonal changes.

Although many people can be suitable, some skin conditions are less compatible with the treatment. People with active acne, rosacea, eczema, and similar skin issues are generally not suitable. A consultation will help you find out whether you are suitable for the treatment.

What to expect

We will perform the treatment in accordance with your skin condition and treatment plan. This will help you achieve a final outcome that suits your goals and skin needs.

The treatment involves using a patented blade that removes surface dead skin cells and fine hair on the face. This will make it easier for products to penetrate and aid the smooth application of makeup. After treatment, the skin feels smooth, soft, and hydrated.

The treatment can be carried out in a lunch hour, allowing the patient to get straight back to the day’s activities, with no downtime at all. Treatments are painless, time-effective, and are normally repeated once every three weeks or monthly, depending on the patient’s needs.

Dermaplaning treatments offer immediate results. Patients will have smoother skin straight after treatment, and their skin will continue to improve over the following days. The result is skin that looks refreshed and renewed.

Things to consider

You will not require downtime and can return to your usual activities straight after the session. However, patients will likely have some redness and mild tingling sensations. It is important to use light, quality skincare products in the days after treatment to minimise any irritation. It is also advised to avoid sun exposure and heat for at least three days.

Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure, which means lasting side effects are very rare. Contrary to common concerns, the vellus hairs will grow back the same colour and thickness as before, with no changes to the hair follicles themselves.


After a Dermal Clinican has removed the surface build-up on your skin, you will be able to go home on the same day and continue your routines as normal. There are certain dos and don’ts after the treatment, and we will advise you on how to care for your skin in the following days. For example, we may instruct you to:

  • Carefully cleanse your face, using a gentle cleanser
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Keep your skin moisturised
  • Wear a high SPF sunscreen
  • Avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours
  • Avoid swimming pools and chlorine
  • Drink water
  • Don’t undergo other facial treatments for two weeks

Risks and complications

By following your post-treatment guidelines, you can reduce your risks and achieve brighter, smoother skin. However, there are always some risks to be aware of. The risks of this treatment are uncommon but in rare cases can include:

  • Breakouts
  • Infection
  • Irritation
  • Redness or discolouration

If you have sensitive skin or conditions like active acne or rosacea, you may not be suitable. We can discuss alternative treatments and ensure you get the best possible care for your skin. After the procedure, if you notice anything concerning, please contact us and we will give you further guidance.

How to choose the best dermaplaning clinic in Melbourne

As opposed to other at-home alternatives, having a clinician’s trained eye and skill will give you confidence in achieving a great result. When planning your procedure, it is vital to seek a reputable clinic and a qualified professional to help you achieve your skin goals. At Flawless Rejuvenation, Dr Arendse and his highly skilled and experienced staff will develop a plan tailored to your skin needs and guide you through the process. Book your consultation at our Melbourne clinic to get personal advice and help your skin feel smooth, clear, and refreshed.


Is dermaplaning good for the skin?

The treatment is designed to remove the top layers of skin. It does not harm the skin but instead removes the dead cells, hairs, and oils to reveal a brighter appearance. Regular treatments are a good way to keep the skin feeling fresh and healthy.

How long does dermaplaning last?

The results of your treatment will not last forever. It is designed to get rid of about three weeks’ worth of dead cells and debris. After about a month, you may notice that your results have faded.

How to prep the skin for dermaplaning?

You can prepare your skin by staying hydrated, not exfoliating, and making sure any cuts or wounds have fully healed before treatment.

What are the pros and cons of dermaplaning?

Before treatment, it’s a good idea to weigh the pros and cons. The downsides are that the treatment is not suitable for sensitive skin, results are not permanent, and your outcomes can depend on your age, skin type, and lifestyle. However, the procedure also offers the benefits of less facial hair, smoother skin, and a quick, comfortable treatment with no recovery time.

Does dermaplaning hurt?

The procedure is designed to be quick, effective, and painless. Patients typically find the experience very comfortable.

How is dermaplaning different from shaving?

The treatment is different from shaving. Shaving cuts the hair while dermaplaning scrapes the hair and surface skin away gently.

How often should you get dermaplaning treatments?

A treatment session once a month is recommended for most people to maintain their results.
