Derma what? Annual one day special!

Dermaplaning

If you’ve been through an elementary school level health class, you know that your skin’s job is to keep foreign substances out, your internal organs in – and to protect those vital organs from burn. The good news for us is that it does a fabulous job at keeping foreign substances out and that includes any pricey skincare product. Read that line again. Even a pricey skincare product. So what can help your skin better absorb any corrective product? Dermaplane.

First, let’s explore dermaplaning. If you’ve never experienced this service before, it is a very simple physical or mechanical method of exfoliation, which helps to remove dead skin cells and give your face a brighter complexion. I have seen it marketed for “hair removal”, and of coarse – it does remove vellus hairs [the baby-fine hairs on your face] as well as thicker hair, but it is not a permanent hair removal solution. It simply removes those baby-fine hairs because they are in my way! Although a perk, my goal is to provide a deep exfoliation sloughing off dead skin cells and old scarring. This will make your skin feel baby smooth.

Dermaplaning process (45 minutes):

1. The face will be thoroughly cleansed with a gentle cleanser, suitable for all skin types.

2. Any oil (even the good oils that your skin naturally possesses) will be gently wiped off using a sterile alcohol solution.

3. Your face will dry very quickly and the dermaplaning will begin. You will feel a slight scraping sensation, but the skin remains intact (and unbroken) throughout the procedure. If you have a rough patch on your skin, there is a chance of a slight nick [but much like shaving, these heal very quickly, most of the time before the end of the treatment]. Dermaplaning will normally take approximately 30 minutes for a full face and neck.

4. Immediately following dermaplaning a natural organic face mask with vitamin C will be applied to the skin. After approximately 10 mins, the mask is removed with warm towels.

5. A blend of organic oils with spf is then applied to the skin.

Second, let’s discuss absorption. Simply because you purchase a product that costs $60-$180 – does not make that product more easily absorbed by your skin. Remember, the skin is fearfully and wonderfully made to keep foreign substances out. Why would it just let that expensive product in? In short – it won’t. Dermaplaning sort of forces the skin to let it’s guard down a little in a controlled environment. I prefer to allow organic – easily recognizable by the body – products in. It is not different than transdermal medication, right? We’ve seen these medications come a long way since their inception. Now, there are pain medications, birth control and hormones delivered transdermally (through the skin). Often a small patch is placed and the drug is absorbed through the skin. It doesn’t just work on the spot the patch is placed, right? Right! It is absorbed systemically. Therefore, what we put on our skin matters. To recap – we know transdermal works – but for some reason we still aren’t looking at ingredients in these pricey skincare products. Would you eat plastic? Would you eat chemicals similar to those used to make asphalt and pavement? Go check out the ingredients in the items you are putting on your skin every day. Expensive does not mean better.

Tip: When applying any product to the skin, try to remember the temperature of your skin (roughly 98 degrees?). Now, think of the temperature of your skincare product. Most are stored in cool bathrooms, say – 70 degrees? Will a colder product have an easy time absorbing into the skin? Probably not. Since you can’t “heat” product up without destroying some of the useful stuff – make sure you are taking the few minutes it takes to “work” your product in. The heat caused by the slight friction and time alone on the skin will help warm the product u. (Mom’s will kids, I’m thinking of us here!) – We have a habit of throwing our own stuff on quickly to get everyone out the door. Take just a moment to work in your product. Otherwise, just squeeze it directly into the sink.

Although admittedly, I am not into pricey skincare products, I do have new clients every week who explain which product they bought over this or that high-priced-counter and I ask them to bring it with them. I will be glad to complete your full dermaplane service and apply my inexpensive organic product on one side of your face, and your product on the other side. We’ll compare immediate results with long-term results using the same method.

Here it is – the once a year special. If you are already a dermaplane fan, I challenge you to kick it up a notch and try it every two weeks over the summer! Lighter, brighter, flawless skin by Fall!
