Dermaplaning, also knows as epi-blading or epidermal levelling, uses an exfoliating blade to gently remove the top layers of the skin, erasing dead skin cells and hair from your face. It is a great treatment to decongest and resurface your skin to leave it looking smooth, even and soft.

How it works

Dermaplaning, also known as epi-blading or epidermal levelling, involves gliding a small sterile blade over the skin at a 45 degree angle, exfoliating dead cells scarring, and other pollutants and debris on your skin’s surface to make way for new cells. This regeneration helps to achieve a brighter, more youthful look. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is not painful.

Pre and post-care guidelines

Dermaplaning (epi-blading or epidermal levelling) is a low-risk procedure and doesn’t require any downtime. If you have an active acne flare-up on the day of your treatment, you may need to reschedule to avoid further irritating the acne. Following your dermaplaning (epi-blading or epidermal levelling) treatment you may experience skin redness for several hours as well as whiteheads in the next 24-48 hours. Infection and scarring are rare but they can occur, so keep your face clean until the skin sensitivity subsides. You can expect to see the full results from dermaplaning (epi-blading or epidermal levelling) within a few days, and results last for three to four weeks. Following the treatment it’s important to limit sun exposure, as sun damage can reverse the effects of dermaplaning (epi-blading or epidermal levelling) and create blotchy pigmentation on your skin. You must protect your skin with sunscreen whenever you leave the house in the weeks following your dermaplaning (epi-blading or epidermal levelling) treatment.
