A treatment assisting in flawless makeup application, decongesting the skin to provide a refreshing glow.
Epidermal levelling is a manual exfoliation procedure using a specialized straight edge ‘blade’ to exfoliate the epidermis while removing fine vellus hairs. It is a non-invasive treatment and treatment areas can include the face, neck, forearms and back.
The exfoliation achieved is similar to Microdermabrasion but without the negative pressure.
Epidermal levelling is a safe and painless treatment that requires no downtime. With instant results, it's a great pre-event treatment that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and glowing.

Safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types
Can be performed on the face, neck, forearm and back

The Epidermal Levelling Treatment Facial will improve the texture and tone of your skin. It involves the use of a patented ‘blade’ that gently removes dead skin cells and fine facial hair. The result is amazing glowing skin that looks refreshed and renewed. This process also aids product penetration, such as skin peels and active skincare and is great for a smooth makeup application.
We can combine Epidermal Levelling with skin peels depending on the individual needs of your skin and what you’re wanting to achieve.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel to gently remove the layer of dull, dead skin cells and vellus hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Who can have dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active breakout and men with heavy facial hair. If you have active acne there are other treatments available that would be more beneficial, and it is necessary to wait until breakouts are healed before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.
How is derma planning different from a peel?
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process that does not use acids or enzymes to remove dead skin cells. All of the exfoliation is achieved during your treatment and you will not peel or visibly shed skin after your service, while Peels can result in dramatic peeling in the days following service. Dermaplaning provides a good alternative to peels for those who desire professional grade exfoliation without the potential social downtime.
What should I expect during my dermaplaning treatment?
Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleansing, professional exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning followed by restorative treatment and finished with skincare suited to your unique skin. Dermaplaning has a similar sensation to close a shave which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells simultaneously.
How long is the treatment?
30 - 45 minutes.
What should I expect after my service?
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skincare products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your makeup will also go on smoother. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
How should I care for my skin after dermaplaning service?
After a Dermaplaning treatment your skin needs time to heal and restore. Treat the skin gently, using only hands to cleanse for at least 2 days and wearing sunscreen every day.
Will my hair grow back thicker and darker?
No, dermaplaning will not alter your natural hair growth. As we remove the vellus hair in the same direction as the hair grows, this ensures it will not grow back thicker or darker.
How often should I get dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment
