Hi, I am Katie and Dermaplaning changed. My. Life!!
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.” Done with a scalpel or a tool called a dermatome. It sounds way more invasive than it is. I promise. No, Sweeney Todd stuff here!
Dermaplaning is a form of intensive exfoliation and hair removal. It leaves your skin brighter and smoother – INSTANTLY. Over a few treatments, it will soften fine lines and wrinkles and ease hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone. It’s also used to treat deep acne scars.
How well it works really depends on your skin type, tone, and medical history. But I’ll leave that information up to the experts! An Esthetician holds so much knowledge. I can assure you from my own personal experience, no question you toss at them is “stupid” or “weird”. There is nothing you can show them that is too “gross” or “embarrassing”. That’s just your head replaying the voices of your 5th grade bullies. You are human.
Estheticians are here to make sure your skin is looking its best and simply enhance your natural, radiant self! Keep this in mind the next time you go to treat yo’ self and book a service. Not only are you paying for the time, products and space, but all that hard work and education they have obtained in order to be the best for you and your skin!
Think of it like this; after years of product build up, dirt and oils, peach fuzz, scar tissue, dryness and so on, how on earth do you expect your skin to truly benefit from these products? The products you spend your hard earned money and energy on. Sure, this is why we exfoliate, but exfoliation can only do so much at the VERY surface.
I cannot express to you enough how a session once a month has completely rocked my world. It’s the first step in changing how I see myself in the mirror. I know everyone has skin texture, so I was shook at how soft and even my face could feel. I glow, everyday. I can see and FEEL my cleansers and moisturizers working, better than ever. Adding this step into your skin journey, I am almost positive, #NOREGRETS.
