Epidermal leveling is a non-invasive technique utilising a specially designed surgical instrument. This cosmetic procedure involves carefully removing the topmost layers of the skin, resulting in a beautiful refinished look. Also known as ‘Dermal Planing’ the procedure aids in correcting scars, pigmentation and fine line wrinkles. In addition, it removes the fine vellous facial hair that can trap excess dirt and oil making the complexion look dull.
Most people notice marked improvements in the skin’s texture and appearance after their first treatment making it an excellent procedure to have just prior to a special event. It is an alternative to chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
