Initial and Long Term Results of Epidermal Leveling

Epidermal leveling is a completely non-invasive facial treatment to refine and rejuvenate skin. When considering this treatment, factor both the initial and long term results into your decision:

Initial Results

Epidermal leveling produces results fairly quickly, although they won't immediately be ideal. The leveling tool shaves away the outer layers of skin and removes fine facial hair with minimal discomfort. While removing the outer layers of skin, wrinkles and deep lines become less visible and hyperpigmentation resulting from acne scarring, tanning and aging becomes less apparent. Your skin won't be ideal immediately following your initial treatment, but you should see some improvement if you've paired the leveling with other treatments, particularly creams and ointments.

After each treatment, your skin may be a bit red and tender for about a day. Although your daily routine should not be affected, don't expect to have clear skin the day of treatment.

Long Term Results

The more epidermal leveling treatments you have, the better your skin will look over the long term. Wrinkles, lines and hyperpigmentation will become increasingly less visible and fine facial hair will stay away for longer over time. However, leveling works best in conjunction with other treatments, as it preps the skin to be better able to absorb lotions and facials. Combining leveling with other facial treatments in the long term can make your skin appear much brighter and fresher. You should continue with the leveling treatment at least once a month for optimal results.

Choosing to undergo epidermal leveling as one part of your facial skin care plan means that you're committing to once a month treatments if you hope to continue seeing long term results. Nevertheless, because of the hair removal and skin refining properties, you may consider the long term commitment worthwhile.
