Fresh Face Friday – Dermaplaning

Smooth, blemish free skin is a dream for all and with endless treatments on the market we are bound try anything! Dermaplaning is a great non invasive treatment for exfoliation dull, lack luster skin and velous hair (those baby fines on your cheeks aka peach fuzz). Now I know you are going to do a quick google and gasp when you see deathly razors perched up against faces, or alternatively run to the store to grab a pack of blades, but just slow down; let me explain! Dermaplaning uses a sterile medical scalpel to exfoliate your skin by sloughing off the dead skin from the epidermis. As it is using a scalpel it also removes those baby fine hairs, peach fuzz. This procedure is done under the care of a specially trained medical esthetician, please don’t go running out to buy a scalpel and try this at home, eek, that could be dangerous.

The results from this treatment are instant, smooth dewy glowing skin. It is a versatile treatment as it is suitable for almost all skin types. Those with severe Acneic skin should avoid this treatment. For those looking for a gentler alternative to microdermabrasion this is for you!
