Epidermal blading, or “epiblading”, is an innovative exfoliation technique that employs a special surgical instrument to gently remove the topmost layer of skin and vellus (fine) hair of the face. 

This means that the fresher, younger skin will be revealed and allows for better penetration of active skin care ingredients (such as vitamin C) deeper in to the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Epiblading is a relatively straight-forward treatment involving the use of a sterile, single use surgical instrument being gently used across the face to “shave” the upper-most layer of dead cell skins. This allows fresher, younger skin cells to be revealed (which gives that youthful glow) and removes any of the vellus (fine) hairs on the face. 

After treatment, the smooth texture of your skin allows for very even makeup application, so it’s the perfect treatment pre-event. 

An additional benefit of epiblading (or any skin exfoliation treatment) is that it allows for better penetration of skin care ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing their effects.

Epidermal Blading is safe for all skin types and is perfect for those wanting a general refresh of the skin or a no-downtime treatment right before an event.

Those with fine vellus (light) hairs that can’t be treated with laser will love the treatment – the hairs do not grow back more coarse or darker than they were before the treatment!

Results are instant. You’ll notice a refreshing glow in your skin right after your epiblading treatment. The fine hairs on your face are immediately removed in the treatment, along with the upper-most layer of old, dead skin cells.

As with all skin rejuvenation treatments, the results are only sustained by a series of treatments. 

To really boost that glow and treat your skin, we also highly recommend an LED phototherapy session as an add-on to epiblading. 

Epiblading is generally a very safe treatment, with the main risks being bleeding or scratches. The blades used for this procedure are single-use and our clinic adheres to strict medical sterlisation protocols. With proper post-treatment care, the risk of infection or other complications is very minimal.
