Facette Facial Bar now offers Dermaplaning treatments.
Lately we have been hearing a lot about dermaplaning and its benefits to the skin. It seems to be creating quite a buzz because it shows instant results and is great for all skin types. Facette Facial Bar, my go-to for all things skincare also recently launched the treatment and so I found myself booked in to try it out and see what the fuss was all about.
Facette Facial Bar needs no introduction, it is a cozy space with friendly staff and a really welcoming vibe. The therapist made me feel comfortable and finally eased all my worries about dermaplaning. Like others, my main concerns are that the hair may grow back thicker and that it may aggravate my skin and I may breakout.
She patiently explained its benefits:
- Deep exfoliation treatment which instantly brightens and softens the skin
- Increases absorption level of skincare products
- Removes vellus hair which can trap oils and dirt on the skin
- Reduces the appearance of acne scars
- Helps to diminish the look of fine lines, pigmentation, and wrinkles
- Pregnancy safe
- Great for all skin types
The most common myth with dermaplaning is that it will change the hair growth, however this is false although dermaplaning removes the very fine vellus hair “peach fuzz” it has little to no impact on how these hairs grow back as the follicle is not damaged. After removing the vellus hair and the dead skin, your skin will instantly feel and look smoother and brighter. It also means that the products will be absorbed better into the skin.
After a gentle cleanse she used a special blade to gently scrape the outer layer of the skin removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The process was very gentle and I was able to take a quick nap through the treatment.
Once the dermaplaning was over I had chosen to do a customized facial to freshen up the skin. As I had a few acne scars and plenty of blackheads, the therapist did a cleansing facial for me. This included a deep exfoliation, removal of blackheads, blue light and finally a cooling mask. Once the mask was taken off she also treated me to a few minutes of face yoga.
The results are almost instant and my dull and tired face instantly looked refreshed and renewed.
Dermaplaning can be done every 4-6 weeks and there is typically no downtime after the treatment. It can also be done as a standalone facial or as an add-on to any of their facials at Facette. In fact, my therapist explained that if dermaplaning is done prior to a facial it increases absorption levels after and enhances the results.
