Take a seat and listen up, class. Welcome to Dermaplaning 101. We promise there won’t be a test at the end of this article, so please don’t be nervous.
Today we’re going to go over the basics of dermaplaning. Dermaplaning? Yes, dermaplaning! You’ve probably at least heard the term before, but maybe you don’t know anything beyond that.
Dermaplaning is a wildly effective facial exfoliating treatment that celebrities and everyday people alike are flocking to. It’s simple, effective, painless, quick and best of all, it leaves your face looking about a million and a half years younger.
Well, maybe not that much, but the point is, dermaplaning will make your face gleam!
Dermaplaning is a new service here at SVAI, but Lisa Kevitch brings 15 years and counting of skillfulness along with the treatments she provides, so with us at your service, you can rest assured knowing that you’re in good hands.
If you’re in the market for one of our other services, like hair restoration or a fat reduction treatment, get in touch any time. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about dermaplaning:
What Is it?
Dermaplaning emerged in the 90s as a natural alternative to physician-administered chemical exfoliation procedures, like chemical peels. The process is based upon the idea that shaving not only rids the skin of hair, but it also rids the skin of its own top layer, revealing a rejuvenated, glowing and fresh underlying layer.
Think about it this way: When it comes to mid to late 30-somethings, it’s more common for a man’s face to maintain its youthfulness than it is for a woman’s. Furthermore, women experience wrinkling earlier in life than men, as a whole. Why’s that? Well, it’s because by around that age, men have been shaving for years, and it turns out shaving is a wonderfully effective way to continually rejuvenate the top layer of dead skin. And that leads to a healthier face in general!
How it Works
When you come in for a treatment with Lisa, the process will be quick and painless. You don’t have to worry about us shaving too much time off of your busy day! First, she’ll sterilize your skin, then she’ll take a surgical grade scalpel and make swift, soft strokes with the blade turned at a medium angle. It won’t feel any different than when you shave your legs, and 30 minutes later, ba-da-bing, your face will glow like it’s never glowed before.
“Can’t I Just Shave My Own Face?!”
Yes, but we wouldn’t recommend it. For starters, shaving the face properly takes a lot of skill and practice. A seasoned professional will possess an expertise that makes the relationship between a sharp blade and your face all the safer. Furthermore, dermaplaning will allow you to reach parts of the face that would otherwise be very difficult, if not impossible. In other words, please don’t apply a razor near your eyes.
Whether you want a dermaplaning, weight loss, hair restoration or spider vein treatment, our job here at SVAI is to provide you with the best service possible. Touch base today and we’ll help you get on your way to feeling and looking as great as can be. Talk to you soon!
