Epiblading is a cosmetic technique used to remove the outer most layer of dead skin cells and fine "peach fuzz" hairs without having to worry about it growing back thick and prickly.
How it Works
Epi-blading is a skin rejuvenation treatment and may be used combined with other modalities to help combat the signs of premature ageing. Epi-blading may help transform tired and dull skin by gently exfoliating the dead surface cells from the skin. Also known as Derma-planing or epidermal levelling, this procedure is ideal for patients with sensitive skin and who are not suitable for other facial treatments, such as chemical skin peels.
Epi-blading is a non-invasive procedure and a single use, sterile surgical blade is used to glide over and remove the outermost layer of the skin. This process is not painful and will cause minimal to no discomfort. Active finishing products will be applied for a beautiful result and to keep your skin calm, protected and hydrated.
There is no downtime associated with epi-blading. This means that you are are free to leave the clinic when you are ready and return to your daily routine. While the skin may appear slightly pink, this will subside within a few hours of the procedure. Excessive sun exposure should be avoided for one week and sunscreen worn to protect the skin.
Epi-blading can be used as part of an age management treatment plan. This means you may be recommended to have this treatment on its own or in conjunction with skin peels, enzyme therapy, laser genesis or any other laser facial. Every patient will require a customised treatment plan to achieve their desired results. Many people have achieved youthful results with epi-blading this includes the removal of vellus facial hair and a brighter and refreshed complexion. In addition, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be softened for a radiate look. Many patients are able to see an improvement in the texture and appearance of their skin in only one treatment.
