Last week we shared with you about waxing and hair care. Today, we are sharing with a Luxury sort of service that we offer by our Licensed Esthetician and Certified Dermaplaner, Randi. When we first heard the word dermaplane I almost couldn't help, but to stop and think about Fantasy Island and Tatoo calling in Da Plane, Da Plane. Quickly I realized that Derma means skin so it had to do with that, but What is Dermaplaning? Jessica interviewed Randi for more information to share with you about the real Dermaplane details and not what I initially thought it was too.
Randi told Jessica that it is a nonabrasive form of exfoliation. The Derma layer (top skin layer) and Vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) is removed. This is recommended about once per month. Your hair will not grow back darker and thicker because there are two(2) types of hair on the body:
1) Vellus Hair– fine translucent hair on cheeks, jaw & neck often referred to as peach fuzz. When Vellus hair is cut the structure of the hair is not changed or damaged.
2) Terminal Hair- thicker colored, coarse hair that grows on legs, arms etc.
So why would we want to do this? Well, I did it and it was amazing! I looked like I had gotten a face lift under my chin! Besides looks some of the other benefits are: smoother skin, awesome exfoliation, your makeup goes on better, and your at home skin care works better.
Facing our Fears:
Does it hurt? No it does not
How long does it take? About 1 Hour
What do I need to do after? Relax, No sweating, steam, avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours. Wear moisturizer & SPF
Can you wear makeup? It is best to wait 24 hours, but we get it(it's not always possible to wait that long and it's not harmful to the process if you must do it sooner).
Do you recommend for acne skin? No but we do offer Acne Facial & a light chemical peel for exfoliation
