Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective cosmetic procedure. It requires the use of a sterile scalpel to remove excess dead skin and fine hairs (known as peach fuzz). This physical exfoliation procedure has many benefits, including better product penetration, increased stimulation of collagen and elastin, as well as glowy, soft, bright and smooth skin for 2–4 weeks. It also improves skin texture, lessens acne breakouts and gives flawless make up application post treatment. What more could you want for your skin?
Initially, when I found out that my aesthetician was removing the top layer of my skin with a blade, I panicked in fear of getting sliced; I also thought it was going to be painful. Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong. I was made to feel at ease and the procedure was completely pain free – I actually think it felt quite nice! The whole experience was super relaxing and I cannot express how perfect my skin felt afterwards; I even got a free sheet mask. My skin is the best it has ever been and writing this three days later, it still feels flawless.
I’ve always been lucky in the sense that I have quite “good skin”, but I was completely shocked at how much dirt, dead skin and hair was removed from my face; it’s actually pretty gross when you think about it [as you can see from the picture]. I think this proved that this treatment really is for every skin type and everyone will benefit from it – my boyfriend is even booked in to have it done next week!
I received my treatment from my aesthetician Georgia (@beautybygsturmer), she is based in Colchester, Essex, and I would recommend this to absolutely everyone. I cannot wait to go back and have it done again!
