Redefining Epidermal Leveling
Epidermal Leveling, also known as Dermaplaning and Dermablading, is a highly specialized treatment designed precisely for removing the top layer of dead skin cells and the fine facial hair that is commonly known as “peach fuzz.”

It is also very effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine line, and acne scars, as well as allowing for better penetration and absorption of both pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical products and has been used as a “prep” to enhance the effectiveness of other skincare treatment.
Epidermal Leveling/Dermaplaning is an extremely safe treatment and is performed by our certified aestheticians at Amy’s Skincare & Med Spa. This treatment is non-invasive, quick and no downtime.
