Hey y’all! Happy Thursday! For today’s post, I wanted to share about my recent experience with Dermaplaning. Over the last few years, I’ve been to different estheticians for addressing my skin care needs, and I typically treat myself to a spa facial once a month. We moved to Austin a year ago and I’ve experimented with different spots, and I finally found Face to Face Spa in Westlake in Austin. So far at this spa, I’ve received a few different medi facial treatments and services including microdermabrasion, vitamin C mask treatment, dermaplaning. This was my first time trying out dermaplaning. I’ve heard how amazing it was, so I had to try it out for myself. I’m going to explain what it is below, and my thoughts on the service after receiving it 2 weeks ago. I’ve had 3 different estheticians so far, but Kristina has been my personal favorite.
1. What is dermaplaning? It’s a method of exfoliation that consist of your esthetician using a small blade to gentle scrap off the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion.
2. Do I notice any difference with this compared to my regular facial services? I do notice that my face is much smoother, and my “peach fuzz” is completely gone. Everyone was also asking me if my hair would grow back any thicker. So far, so good. I haven’t noticed any thick hair growing back, but I will continue to keep y’all updated. The other thing I noticed was my complexion appeared more even, and my makeup goes on smoother.
3. How did I think it felt? I didn’t think it hurt at all; it honestly felt like someone was shaving my face. I had to stay really still to ensure there would be no cuts happening on my face.
3. How long does it take? Speaking from my experience only, it lasted ~30 minutes.
4. Is dermaplaning for everyone? There are certain skin types that aren’t recommended for dermaplaning. I’m no expert, so definitely consult with your esthetician to see if this is right for you before you decide to do this.
5. Would I do it again? Absolutely. I will see how the results look after a few more weeks, and keep you updated on what I decide, but I plan to incorporate this into my regular facial service every 6 weeks.
