Epidermal leveling, also known as blading or dermaplaning,
is a facial exfoliation treatment that removes the outer layers of dead skin
and fine hair for a more vibrant appearance. Epidermal leveling is performed
with a scalpel-like blade that is gently passed over the skin—similar to shaving.
The procedure takes about 45 minutes and has immediate results.
How epidermal leveling is performed
Epidermal leveling is an in-office treatment that is
comfortable and relaxing. No skin preparation is necessary. Your skin
specialist will gently scrape away top layers of dead skin and fine “peach fuzz”
hair using a surgical blade. This is similar to being shaved with an
old-fashioned straight-razor. The process takes about 45 minutes.
Recovery and Results
Epidermal leveling has no downtime, but you may
have some mild and temporary skin redness. The results are immediate and your
skin will feel finer and appear more vibrant and smooth. The benefits of the
treatment can last several months.
