Epidermal leveling is a relatively new exfoliation (peeling) treatment for both men and women. The treatment is applicable to all types of skin and is sometimes also known as derma-planning. Epidermal leveling uses a specially designed surgical blade which very carefully removes the very superficial layers of the skin. The procedure not only removes dead skin and debris but also removes hair. When the new skin grows back it appears revitalized and very beautiful.
Epidermal leveling is used to treat a number of skin conditions like minor skin imperfections such as uneven skin, pigmentation disorders, mild acne scars and very fine lines.
The results of the treatment are immediate. The procedure is often combined with other skincare treatments like chemical peels and laser skin rejuvenation.
Even though a special instrument is used, the procedure is non invasive and painless. The treatment sessions feels as if the skin is gently being scraped. There are no injections and the downtime is zero. One great bonus of this treatment is that it also removes hair temporarily without causing any harm to skin or the hair follicle. The end result is a radiant luminous fresh looking skin.
Because epidermal leveling is not a permanent cure, it is recommended that individuals have the skin treated once every 4-6 weeks. The procedure is usually performed in a physician’s office by a therapist who has been trained with this procedure.
