Dermaflash. The tool you don’t want to pass this new year. Hear this out. You can easily achieve radiant skin, say in a flash?
Dermaflash is going to revolutionize your skin care routine, one up your exfoliating game, and most likely, will rock your world, when beautiful compliments come pouring your way in 2016.
Designed for sensitive skin on a woman’s face, Dermaflash will exfoliate and help remove dull cells, unwanted vellus hair or peach fuzz and unveil smoother, radiant and younger looking skin. The treatment is enhanced by a subtle sonic vibration or ‘the humming’.
So how does it actually work and is it safe? Believe me, I asked the same questions myself and before getting down to business and start shaving my face, I scoured the web for information.
“Dermaplaning, a procedure in which an aesthetician carefully scrapes the face with a super-sharp blade or scalpel using light, feathery strokes.” (source Refinery29)
Well that freaked me out. Apparently, this has actually been around for years but just not many use it or some don’t actually know about it. And I can understand why. On the other hand, the benefits of dermaplaning are quite astounding.
Now fast forward to what I did over the weekend…
Guess who Dermaflashed her face over the weekend? After debating whether to shave or not to shave my peach fuzz, I finally gave in. It took me no more than 10 minutes to do my entire face and that’s probably because I was super careful with my feathery strokes, otherwise, you can do it less than my time.
The Good News
The good news about Dermaflash is that… it works! Thanks to its well-designed device and easy to understand instructions, which by the way, I read a million times.
The 3-step process is very simple to follow: you PREP (cleanse), attach the EDGE (blade) to the device, go dermaplaning (and watch those unwanted hairs fly away – basically) and SOOTHE (hydrator). Don’t worry I won’t gross you out with images although I’ll be doing a before/after photos next week when I start my second Dermaflash adventure!
The humming and vibration coming from the device was nerve-wracking at first, but two minutes later, I started to get used to it and it actually helps knowing that the device is actually/still working. You might notice some redness after the treatment, in fact I did and also my skin felt dry after prepping it and during the treatment, but the redness subsided and I did not break out!
I like the safety and hygienic feature of the single-use blade a lot. Basically, when you’re done using the exfoliating edge, you put it back to its tray, gently and careful slide the device in reverse, removing the exfoliating edge from the nose/handle. Now you may ask, how am I going to know which one I’ve used or not? This is where the nifty feature comes in.
Once you pull the handle backwards, this action activates the tab (see that little blue tab you see on each blade above and one without on the left?) and disables the exfoliating edge from being used again. So rest assured that the next time you use your Dermaflash, you’ll always use the clean exfoliating edge and you’ll know which is which!
Is It Worth It?
When I’ve gone passed my nervousness of trying it for the first time and finally seeing the result, I can’t stop touching my face! Yes, I know I shouldn’t touch my face (even my husband told me so) but my skin just felt so smooth and hello glow!
Let’s just say that this is one interesting and satistifyng skincare experience to kick off my New Year and yes I’m doing it again next week!
Dermaplaning done by aestheticians can cost around $150 per single treatment alternatively, you can buy Dermaflash Facial Treatment System at Sephora for $189, which comes complete with The Essentials and start doing your treatment at the comfort of your home for $31.50 per treatment. So yeah.
