So a few weeks ago I finally decided to give in and make an appointment with an esthetician and try dermaplaning. For those of you who don’t know what dermaplaning is- it’s a non-invasive procedure in which the top layer of dead skin cells gets scraped away as well as those teeny tiny vellus hairs (also known as peach fuzz). Before you ask- no the hair does not grow back darker or thicker. That is a MYTH! It grows back the exact same as it was before. By the end of the procedure your face is supposed to be smoother, brighter, and more youthful. Before/After pictures are below as well as my own personal review and FYI I did not use any filters, effects, etc. It’s the real deal!
I did my research and made an appointment with Nancy Lazar who owns her own business and is a licensed medical esthetician as well so I knew I was in good hands. She was so knowledgeable and was helpful in explaining everything to me while she was working on my face. The procedure was a lot quicker than I thought it would be and didn’t hurt at all. I followed up the dermaplaning with a facial afterwards and my skin has never felt better. It was SO soft and smooth that I could not stop touching my face. Plus I could definitely tell I had more of a healthy glow. Here’s the best part of it all, I can tell my skincare products are much more effective because they’re able to soak into my skin much easier. Especially with my night-time skincare products as well. I wake up and my face looks much more awake and radiant. Another pro? Your make-up application will look flawless because of how smooth your skin looks and I’ve also noticed that my make-up has much more staying power than it normally does. All in all I loved this entire process! I think it would be a great thing to try if you have a special event coming up and want your skin to look flawless. It is worth every single penny! If you live in the Atlanta area I HIGHLY recommend Nancy. You can book an appointment here or find an esthetician in your local area!
