Cosmetic Injectables Australia offers dermaplaning treatments at our Brisbane & Darwin clinics. Read on to learn more about dermaplaning, then use our easy online booking to make an appointment.
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses a sterile surgical blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplanning, epiblading or justblading.
Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile surgical blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.
Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.
Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.
Another possible side effect is patchy pigmentation in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.
You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment at our Brisbane or Darwin clinics. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure.
You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.
Results of dermaplaning aren’t permanent. The procedure claims to clear away up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. After three weeks to a month, your results will have faded.
After a dermaplaning treatment, you’ll need to be extra careful about sun exposure, especially given the tropical climates of Brisbane & Darwin. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning, or create pigment blotches on your freshly uncovered skin cells. In the weeks after a dermaplaning treatment, don’t leave the house without wearing sunscreen on your face.
Before you have a dermaplaning treatment at our Brisbane or Darwin clinic, you’ll need to have a conversation with your therapist. Your medical history, skin type, and skin colouring will be discussed, as well as the results you want.
If you have an active acne flare-up, you may need to reschedule your appointment to avoid irritating your skin further or tearing your skin’s surface.
You’ll also need to avoid direct sun exposure in the week prior to your appointment, as sun damage, such as a sunburn, could compromise your skin and make the treatment painful.
There’s little to no downtime required after a dermaplaning treatment. You won’t need to take time off from work, and you may even be able to fit it in during your lunch break.

Dermaplaning removes excess skin cells (removes the dead top layers of your skin), as does waxing. We recommend scheduling your waxing appointment at least two weeks before or after your dermaplaning treatment to avoid any possible irritation.
While in the hands of a professional, dermaplaning is safe for most skin types, especially those with sun damage, fine lines, dry patches, and dull skin. If you have highly reactive, sensitive skin (rosacea or keratosis pilaris), we will suggest another treatment that is more suitable. This goes for anyone with inflamed acne as we do not want to spread any bacteria across the skin.
It’s a myth that your facial hair will become either thicker or darker after dermaplaning. It’s common to feel a little stubble as your hair starts growing back in after dermaplaning. This doesn’t mean that your hair is thicker or coarser. The hair may feel different to you, but it’s the exact same texture and color as it was before dermaplaning.
Yes, it is possible. As dermaplaning removes layers of the skin, it can leave your face more exposed. It is important to not use any active products or touch your skin after treatment.
No, it is not recommended. You need to wait until your skin has healed. Wait until two weeks after the treatment before commencing any other skin treatments.
Every 4 – 6 weeks as the results last about 3 weeks.
