Magazines and medical or beauty programs are always talking about new products or techniques that the celebrities are flocking to as the “must-have” treatment. Because I take my job very seriously, I’ve already heard about most of them, and if I feel like it’s a fad or maybe doesn’t yield the results you’re looking for, I will tell you up front.
And every once in awhile you’ll call me and ask me about a “new” treatment and I’ll tell you that I’ve been offering it to my clients for years, with fabulous results.
One such treatment is DERMAPLANING.
Ever since the Real Housewives of New York City started talking about dermaplaning treatments, I’ve had calls asking if I’m familiar with the procedure. And I am happy to say that I can refer them to almost every one of my existing clients, who have enjoyed the benefits – and compliments – as a result of having dermaplaning as part of their skin care regimen with me here at Head To Toe by Arlene.
What is Dermaplaning?
We’ve all heard about the benefits of exfoliating – removing the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, to restore the healthy glow, smooth fine lines, reduce acne scarring, and remove facial hair. The result is a smoother complexion, and the perfect “canvas” for your skin care products and cosmetics to perform optimally.
Dermaplaning is the process by which a professional – an esthetician, dermatologist, or other trained skin care specialist – performs the exfoliation with a blade.
Don’t worry, hair doesn’t grow back thicker after dermaplaning. And I recommend it for most of my clients, although I will first evaluate your skin, discuss any specific problems you may have, such as acne, rosacea, or sensitivity, and make sure the procedure is something that will benefit you.
Dermaplaning is most effective when combined with regular facials – such as hydrafacial and oxygen facial – and the use of the right practices and products at home, in between facial appointments.
If you’ve heard about dermaplaning and are interested in learning how you can incorporate it into your skin care regimen, give me a call. I love nothing more than to educate people about how they can look and feel their very best through proper skin care!
