I’ve had a few people approach me and ask my opinion on the “at home” dermaplaning tool. And because I am so passionate about the industry, and love dermaplaning, I thought I’d write a little blog to clarify. These tools seem to be trending and are being advertised as dermaplaning. The tinkle razor is in fact what it says, a razor. That’s all. And unfortunately people are being led to believe that it’s actually dermaplaning. It only removes surface hair.
This is a description I found online about the popular tool:
Tinkle Eyebrow Razor removes the fine hairs of the eyebrow, neck and face as well as unnecessary hairs elsewhere. It features a stainless steel safety cover attached to each blade to protect a woman’s sensitive skin and prevent blade from cutting too closely while shaving; even beginners can easily and safely use it.
So… there you have it folks! Sadly, it’s only a razor.
What is dermaplaning you ask? Dermaplaning is the physical exfoliation of the skin using a surgical steel blade. After cleansing the clients face and prepping the skin with a toner, I lightly scrape the top layer of the skin, while holding the blade at a 45 degree angle. This process removes 2 to 3 weeks of dead skin, and also the pesky vellus hair (peach fuzz). The peach fuzz doesn’t grow back darker or thicker. It’s great for the client concerned with aging, due to it softens fine lines/wrinkles, and helps products penetrate deeper into the skin! Afterwards, your skin is left with a youthful and healthy glow! There is no downtime, which is why it’s so appealing. It also benefits clients who are battling with acne scarring and pigmentation.
I offer an express dermaplaing, which is great for those clients on the go that don’t have much time, or the dermaplaning facial, which includes massage, and a calming mask.My treatment room is located in beautiful Bellingham, WA. I am certified through Dermaplane Pro. It’s my number 1 service! Your skin feels so smooth and has a healthy glow. Dermaplaning is recommended every 4 weeks to maintain healthy skin.
Thanks so much for reading! And I hope this helps clarify =)
