Yes, you read the title right… I got my face shaved! In other words, I got dermaplaning done for the first time! I’ve been hearing a lot about it lately and even seeing videos of people getting the procedure done and I was definitely interested. I reached out to my friend Lianna who is an esthetician and works at B Medical Spa & Wellness Center in San Diego to see if she does dermaplaning and she said yes so we booked me an appointment!
I finally went this week… You’re probably wondering if it hurts since it is done with a 10 gauge scalpel? Not at all and there are no side effects! Dermaplaning gently scrapes the dead skin layer and tiny hairs (peach fuzz) off of your face which results in smoother, softer and brighter skin. The whole procedure took less than 30 minutes and I was so amazed with how my face felt and looked after! It’s basically like a super effective exfoliation.
Other benefits are it helps eliminate fine wrinkles and it’s long-lasting (the next time you’ll have to shave your face is like 3-4 weeks). Another plus, is that your make-up will go on much smoother. I was also thrilled to learn that my skin products will work better since the whole layer of dead skin is gone. So amazing! You gotta try it out for yourself!
