About Face Time

Graceful negotiation for the signs of aging

All you are to me is dead skin anyhow.

on July 15, 2014

Do you have extremely sensitive skin, rosacea, or enough “blonde/white/light” fuzzy hair on your face to be considered a Tennessee peach? If so, you’ll be pretty excited about this not-so-new service being added back on to the list of services at About Face! Clients have asked about this service frequently enough for it to appear regularly in our arsenal of anti-aging secrets.


Because fuzz only belongs on peaches

It’s – Dermaplaning (or dermablading).

Dermaplaning (not to be confused with microdermabrasion) is a non-invasive & no down-time skin care procedure that is used to remove any fine facial hair and is touted as an excellent method for the exfoliation of dead skin cells.  It rejuvenates the outer surface layer of the skin, improving its texture and freshening its appearance.  It removes dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and vibrant! The results are a glowy fresh faced appearance with the temporary disappearance of any unwanted facial hair. 


 Since it is extremely gentle, it is perfect for those with very sensitive skin, inflamed rosacea, pregnant or nursing women and those who are more comfortable with a non-chemical exfoliation approach to skin exfoliation. Immediately following treatment, clients will see noticeable improvement in the texture and appearance of the skin.  Bonus = make-up will go on smoother and products will penetrate the skin better following this treatment. If you love Laser Genesis and want an extra boost, ask to have your skin prepped for laser with Dermaplaning! 

What to expect

 During a Dermaplane session your skin will first be cleansed and ph balanced. After this initial cleansing process a 10% povidone iodine and or acetone will be applied to your face. Povidone iodine is traditionally used to prevent infection and it is perfect for preventing the spreading of bacteria from any recent break-outs on the skin. Once your skin has thoroughly dried, your skin will be pulled taunt as a surgical blade* is feathered across the surface of your skin. This does not hurt and will not cause broken skin (nor any bleeding). 

* After discussing with our Medical Director, we feel it is best to use disposable (one time) use surgical blades. There is a slight cost increase to us, but we feel strongly that in any skincare procedure it is best to use disposable equipment as much as possible. Although we take extra steps to prevent the spread of any germs,  we just do not feel reusable (autoclaved) surgical blades are worth the risk. One clients “good bacteria” is good for their skin, but maybe not for yours! If having this procedure elsewhere, ask your clinician to use disposable blades (you should be able to hear them opening the package and see them dispose of the blade into a sharps container after use).



  We recommend that you have this service once every 4-6 weeks. Regular exfoliation (twice weekly) with at home exfoliator should resume 1 week following this procedure. Dermaplaning will be added to our regular menu of service for $50. It will include all steps outlined above plus any facial extractions that are needed. 60 minute service.

Micro Peel

 Want to step it up a notch? Immediately following your dermaplaning a Glycolic Acid treatment can be applied to your face. This is an ideal treatment for stimulating collagen and restructuring the skin to improve hyperpigmentation (brown spots), fine-line wrinkles, texture, and skin impurity. The micropeel also significantly improves dullness and laxity that occurs during the natural aging process. Dermaplaning + Glycolic peel = Micro Peel. The micro peel service will be added to our regular menu of service for $60. 75 minute service.

 You know how much we love our laser genesis around our treatment room! (Still the number one requested staff service) and my all time favorite. You’ve probably guessed by now DermaGenesis combines Dermaplaning and Laser Genesis. Immediately after the dermaplaning process a complete Laser Genesis treatment will be completed. This mini-escape will end with an anti-aging facial mask that will replenish your skin’s moisture and enhance the tightening effects of Laser Genesis. DermaGenesis will be added to our regular menu of service for $150. 90 minute service.

Non-Profit Love

 Speaking of peaches…one of my most favorite peachy keen non-profit foundations is Peach’s Neet Feet. Peach’s Neet Feet is a random acts of kindness based, non-profit organization that provides custom, hand-painted shoes to children living with disabilities and fighting serious illnesses. Many of our local cancer fighter’s have been recipients of Madison’s painted wonder super-kid shoes, including Murfreesboro’s own -Ms. Carlee Beam! We are kicking this month’s donations up a notch! Donate any amount to either Peach’s Neet Feet or Cure For Carlee and be entered to win a FREE package of DermaGenesis described above (value of $450). Each donation of $25 will earn you one entry. Entry dates are donations dated 7/14/14 – 7/31/14. One winner will be chosen on 8/2/14 from all entries. (For example for each increment of $25 you will receive one entry form. Donations to each non-profit will be added together). Donations will be confirmed with the non-profit and the winner will be notified 8/2/14. If you do not want to make an on-line donation, you may write a check payable directly to the non-profit and drop off at About Face. We’ll mail them in and complete your entry form.

Happy middle of July~ Lori
