WHO - - In this Issue -­mablad­ing is a new treat­ment that re­moves vel­lus hair, or peach fuzz, from the face with gen­tle strokes from a ster­ile scalpel. Sound scary … like shav­ing your face? Well, it’s not. Ac­cord­ing to Lisa Sul­li­van- Smith, co-di­rec­tor of The Clinic in Sydney, it is sim­i­lar to shav­ing, but the ben­e­fits are very dif­fer­ent. “Der­mablad­ing is a form of ex­fo­li­a­tion that im­proves smooth­ness of the skin, in­creases cir­cu­la­tion and over­all ra­di­ance and di­min­ishes the small hairs around the neck and chin,” says Sul­li­van- Smith. It is suit­able for all skin types and ideal for any­one want­ing to im­prove makeup ap­pli­ca­tion or seek­ing smoother skin.

The treat­ment takes no more than 40 min­utes. “We start with a thor­ough cleanse of the face and the treat­ment is then per­formed by a trained nurse, who uses a ster­ile scalpel to stroke the skin,” says Sul­li­van- Smith. De­spite what you may think, it won’t cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. “This is be­cause the hair on the face this treat­ment tar­gets is vel­lus hair, not ter­mi­nal [coarse] hair.” Smooth, ra­di­ant skin in less than an hour … who’s keen?
