Ok, so halloween is really close and we just wanted to scare you. YOU shouldn't exfoliate your own skin with a scalpel, BUT you should let a licensed professional do it for you. This procedure sounds daunting, but it's not.
Because it sounds scary, we'll be referring to it by it's more salon-friendly name: Dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is the process by which a licensed professional, yes, a licensed professional (do you get the hint?), uses a scalpel to exfoliate your skin. The 10-guage scalpel is glided across the skin to delicately remove dulling, dead skin cells. This reveals a brighter, more youthful complexion in a matter of minutes. Additionally, it removes vellus hair (that small, almost invisible hair your makeup cakes onto) and smoothes the surface. The result is a skin surface that not only looks brighter and younger, but it also absorbs skincare products faster and more efficiently, making your skincare regimen that much more effective.
As if we needed to sell you again, Dermaplaning is also one of the quicker, more affordable skincare options. For example, here at Smoothe, we offer a full derma planing procedure, complete with pampering and unofficial counseling, for just $80. This is an investment you want to make in your skin. Trust us (we're licensed).
