Dermaplaning is FABULOUS

My name is Dana Hamm. I'm a model and actress, and I absolutely love dermaplaning!! I have dealt with monthly breakouts and oily skin most of my adult life. Dermaplaning does wonders for my skin. I like to get it before photo shoots or important events or auditions.

My facialist dermaplanes my entire face, neck, and upper chest area and then follows with a mild beta peel. She works extra diligently on the areas where I've had a pimple or facial areas that show more stress like between the eyebrows or around the mouth. It seems that fine lines and enlarged pores can be minimized through this treatment.

Afterwards I'm left with silky smooth baby's skin. It's like glass. It is a little red for the first few days, but it's not a severe red...it looks more like a light sunburn. People will just think you've been in the tanning bed or at the beach.

Applying my make-up is such a pleasure after dermaplaning. It goes on so easy and smoothly. And it looks wonderful. I would venture to say that dermaplaning takes a few years off my face. I always get compliments on my skin afterwards. The results seem to last several weeks.

The only downside to dermaplaning is that it can cause a few ingrown hair bumps around the upper lip. Dermaplaning is similar to a deep shave, so I suppose it could be like razor burn. However, it's not bad. Typically, I get a 1-2 small pimples near the corners of my mouth...and then that's it.

I totally feel it's worth it. And it may not happen to other people. I have sensitive skin.
