Epi Dermal Leveling

(also known as Dermal Planing or Epi Blading)

Epi Dermal Levelling removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells and vellous/peach fluff hair leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant.

Epi Dermal Leveling (blading) is a non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. The treatment uses a small blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells which are responsible for giving the skin a dull and sallow appearance. 

Included in this treatment is either an enzyme exfoliation or hydrating mask along with a luxurious hand & arm massage.

How often can Epi Dermal Leveling be performed?

Blading can be performed every 3 – 4 weeks.  Every persons hair growth rate is slightly different. Blading the skin actually removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells!

Is Epi Dermal Leveling safe?

This treatment is extremely safe. Caryll and Stefanie have extensive training and experience handling the sterilised surgical grade blades. Holding the skin taut is key to ensuring no incidence of cutting the skin. 
We do not blade over the nose or eyelids.

If you are ‘blading’ the skin on the face, won’t the hairs on the face grow back thicker?

No.  It is physiologically impossible for your vellous hairs (peach fuzz) to grow back thicker after shaving/blading.  Once the hair is cut at the surface, it has a blunt edge but this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered.
Sometimes, waxing or threading can make the hair appear to be “thinner” but it is really not thinner at all.  Because waxing or threading treatments pull the hair from it’s root, the new hair grows with tapered smooth tip, making it feel softer.  But it is physiologically the same type of hair it was before.

Is there any downtime with Epi Dermal Leveling?

The skin may look flushed immediately after treatment, but the flushing is usually very mild and dissapears within an hour or so. On rare occasion the skin does become flakey after Epi Dermal Leveling, this is the skins natural rejuvenation response and usually settles within a day or two.

How is Epi Dermal Leveling performed?

After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a sterilised surgical blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the surface to removal dead dull skin cells and vellous (peach fluff) hairs. The blading is blended down the neck and along the hairline, giving a flawlessly smooth finish. Depending on the needs of the individual skin, an enzyme exfoliation or hydration mask is then performed along with a luxurious hand and arm massage. Hydrating and calming serums are then applied, with a recovery balm and sunscreen protection to finish.

What does the Acnelan treatment involve?

The in clinic treatment is a 3 step process.

  1. Preparation (Deep antibacterial cleanse and Healite II LED Light Therapy)
  2. Intensive treatment (a multi factor mask, then recovery mask and pore sealing shield). This part of the treatment can be uncomfortable.
  3. Protection (soothing and repairing post care and photo protection)

The included home skincare regime maintains and targets acne triggers and prevents a recurrence after the peel course is complete.
