Epi-Blading, also known as Dermaplaning, is a gentle method of deeply exfoliating the skin. A surgical blade is worked over the face removing the outer layers of dead skin cells as well as any fine hair. Any fine “peach-fuzz” hair removed during the treatment is not stimulated, and will not grow back coarse. This treatment is also great for blonde hair that cannot be treated with laser.
Epi-Blading is a good alternative for clients with sensitive skin who are not suitable for Microdermabrasion. There is no downtime associated with the treatment. The treatment can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with a chemical peel, for better penetration of skincare products. For best Epi-Blading results we recommend a course of 4-8 treatments with 3-4 week intervals, although results will be seen with each and every treatment.

In the Spotlight
How it works
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.
This treatment can be used to treat a number of conditions including dry, dull or rough skin, acne and congestion, superficial pigmentation and fine lines and allows for better absorption of skin care products.
Epi-Blading is used to treat the face.
What to expect
A surgical blade attached to a blade holder is gently scraped over the face lifting both peach fuzz and dead skin cells at the same time, resulting in a smoother, fresher, and brighter looking complexion.
Epi-Blading or Dermaplaning is completely painless and there is no downtime.
There is the option to include a relaxing Healite II treatment, following the epi-blading procedure. This will assist to sooth the skin, and for it to recover and heal faster.
Epi-Blading can be used to treat a number of conditions including dry, dull or rough skin, acne and congestion, superficial pigmentation and fine lines and allows for better absorption of skin care products.
Regular treatments are recommended to ensure continued improvements, and maximum benefit from at-home skincare products (ability to absorb and have affect).
