Dermaplanning & Epi-Blading Treatments in our Brisbane, Gold Coast & Ipswich Clinics
Over the years, our facial skin is exposed to environment factors and our appearance can change with age. This includes fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a build-up of dead skin. Moreover, without removing the fine hairs on our face, dirt and oil can become trapped on the skin. This can cause the skin to look tired and we can look older than our years.
Epi Blading also known as Derma-planning or Derma-blading, is a gentle method of deeply exfoliating the skin. A surgical blade is worked over the face on a 45-degree angle removing the outer layers of dead skin cells as well as any fine hair or “Peach Fuzz” leaving the skin super smooth, fuzz free and rejuvenated.
Consultation Requirements for Epi-Blading and Dermplanning Treatments
Every patient will undergo a consultation with a professional prior to receiving epi-blading. This will involve going through the procedure and discussing desired results. This consultation is the best opportunity to ask any questions, so you can make an informed decision about going ahead with treatment. Normally it is recommended to have four to eight treatments every four weeks. Patients will be able to discuss this with a professional during the consultation in our Brisbane, Ipswich or Gold Coast clinics and discuss the post-op care.
How Do Epi-Blading And Dermplanning Treatments Work?
Epi-blading is a skin rejuvenation treatment can be used to combat the signs of ageing and transform tired and dull skin and uses a gentle method to exfoliate the skin. Also known as Derma-planning or epidermal levelling, this procedure is ideal for patients with sensitive skin and who are not suitable for other facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion.
Epi-blading is a non-invasive procedure and a sterile surgical blade is used to glide over and remove the outermost layer of the skin. This process is not painful and will cause minimal discomfort for the patient.
There is no downtime associated with epi-blading. This means that patients are free to leave the clinic when they are ready and return to their daily routine. While the skin may appear slightly pink, this will subside within a few hours of the procedure. Excessive sun exposure should be avoided for one week and sunscreen worn to protect the skin.
The Results Of Dermplanning And Epi-Blading
Epi-blading can be used as part of an anti-ageing treatment plan. This means you choose to have this treatment on its own or in conjunction with skin peels or laser genesis. In addition, every patient will require a different amount of treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. Many people have achieved youthful results with epi-blading, this includes the removal of vellus facial hair and a brighter and refreshed complexion. In addition, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be softened for a radiate look. Many patients are able to see an improvement in the texture and appearance of their skin in only one treatment.
