The Secret to Beautiful Skin is out – Dermaplaning at Aestique
Ever wondered how female celebrities master that dewy, airbrushed look on the red carpet? A combination of potential factors: diet, exercise, a barrage of invasive treatments, and the most advanced makeup formulas. But there’s one more thing all those stars are doing: dermaplaning. The simple beauty ritual might be responsible for Kim Kardashian’s glow, but it dates back to the days of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.

The treatment consists of scraping a tiny scalpel around the face to remove the vellus hairs, otherwise known as peach fuzz, which in turns acts as an exfoliant for dead skin cells. It immediately brightens the face, allowing products and cosmetics to penetrate at a deeper level. Makeup and foundation almost glides onto the face, and the skin feels smoother from the lack of dead skin cells. The procedure lasts a pain-free 25 minutes and costs $125 with a light acid peel or $60 if you add it onto another treatment.

No razor burn! Have you ever had razor burn? Not only is it extremely uncomfortable, but it also looks terrible! No one wants to put on a bathing suit or a tank top with red, bumpy razor-burned skin. Waxing eliminates razor burn completely. It also, saves time, thins the hair, your hair gets softer, waxing lasts longer, and it is just easier!
