What is Epidermal Levelling?

Epidermal levelling, also known as dermaplaning, is a manual exfoliation procedure that utilises a specialised straight-edge blade to exfoliate the epidermis while simultaneously removing fine vellus hairs. 

This non-invasive treatment can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, forearms, and back. Unlike microdermabrasion, epidermal levelling achieves exfoliation without the use of negative pressure, making it a gentle yet effective option for skin rejuvenation.

With no downtime and instant results, it’s a popular treatment before events and special occasions. Here are a few reasons why we love this treatment!


Deeply exfoliating 

One of the primary benefits of epidermal levelling is its ability to remove the superficial stratum corneum, which consists of the top layer of dead skin cells. By eliminating this layer, the treatment leaves the skin feeling smooth and looking brighter. 

Epidermal levelling offers immediate results with no downtime, making it an ideal pre-event treatment for clients seeking a quick skin refresh.

Removes facial hair

Another advantage of epidermal levelling is its ability to remove vellus hair, commonly referred to as "peach fuzz," without the harsh effects of waxing.  This makes it a safe option for individuals with sensitive skin or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the treatment does not involve the use of chemicals. 

Many clients are also surprised to learn that this treatment 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.

Increases product penetration

Epidermal Levelling gently eliminates dead skin cells and fine facial hair, creating a smooth canvas that enhances the absorption of skincare products. Eliminating these barriers allows for deeper penetration of cosmeceuticals, maximising their effectiveness and benefits for the skin. It can also be used before facials and peels to achieve similar benefits. 

Can be used in conjunction with other treatments

Epidermal Levelling can be combined with other skincare treatments, such as chemical peels and LED therapy, to enhance its efficacy and tailor the experience to individual needs. 

When combined with peels, it amplifies the exfoliation process, allowing for deeper penetration of the peel solution and promoting more significant skin rejuvenation. Following with LED therapy can further boost collagen production, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall skin health. 

Suitable for most clients, this combination can deliver maximum results, improving skin texture, tone, and radiance.

In summary, epidermal levelling is a safe, painless, and effective treatment for achieving smooth, glowing skin. 

With its ability to remove dead skin cells, fine facial hair, and improve product penetration, epidermal levelling offers numerous benefits for clients wanting to improve the health and appearance of their skin.
