Brighten Up the New Year With Dermaplaning

The new year is a time for all of us to reflect on the aspects of our life we’d like to change. That may mean shedding your old habits, taking a more judicious look at your wardrobe — and for many people, it’s a time to re-dedicate yourself to a skincare regimen. Dermaplaning is a great way to do that. This gentle exfoliating treatment is the perfect way to usher in the new year and be your brightest self in 2017.

Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you can expect to be in our office anywhere from an hour to 75 minutes. At SkinSpirit, our professionals use only SkinCeuticals® dermaplane blades. These blades look very similar to scalpels — but don’t worry, there’s no cutting involved in the treatment. Rather than using the blade to make an incision, your aesthetician glides it over your face to gently peel away hair, debris, and the outermost layers of your skin. What remains is fresh, smooth, clear skin that’s ready to receive the active ingredients in your favorite products.

Unlike microdermabrasion or at-home exfoliation, dermaplaning doesn’t tear the skin, so it’s quite gentle. No anesthetic is required during treatment, and most patients say the sensation is actually pretty relaxing.

From our Instagram video, you can see that the results of dermaplaning are instant. As the aesthetician pushes “peach fuzz” and dead cells out of the way, a brighter and more even complexion emerges. After dermaplaning treatment, your skincare professional continues your facial with extractions and a customized blend of products to nourish your brand-new skin.

We’re so excited to help you ring in the new year with dermaplaning at Skin Spirit.
