Lately I have been so bad at looking after my skin. The lead up to Christmas meant that my mind was focused on other things and even though I know better, I resorted back to soap & water, high street cheapie moisturisers and I’m pretty sure my make up brushes have a second skin (yuck!). I had been researching facials that were good for exfoliation and magically a few days later Tamlyn McNeilly contacted me to try out a Dermaplane 24k Gold Facial with her!
What is Dermaplane?
After researching different exfoliating facials Dermaplane jumped out at me for its deep exfoliation. Dermaplane is a manual exfoliation that removes up to three weeks worth of dead skin and peach fuzz or baby hair from your face without causing it to grow back thicker or darker.
What happens during a Dermaplane 24k Gold Facial?
After cleansing, a sterile, surgical scalpel is used to gently “shave” along the skins surface, removing the top layer of dead skin along with peach fuzz. This is totally pain free and actually relaxing! Afterwards a face mask is applied to sooth the skin – maximising the relaxation!
What are the benefits of Dermaplane?
After the treatment my skin felt silky smooth. My make up went on much easier (it even encouraged me to wash my brushes) as the treatment is designed to leave a flawless base for applying make up. It also has no downtime and the results last for up to 6 weeks – making my life much easier as trying to fit in time for facials at the minute is not easy! As it is a deep exfoliation it also helps your skin absorb any products applied afterwards. This helps to soothe and hydrate your skin afterwards.
Some other benefits include:-
- Reducing the appearance of acne scars
- Diminishing the look of fine lines
- It works on most skin types (Tamlyn can advise you better on your skin type and if the treatment is suitable for you)
My skin has been insanely congested for around 3/4 months now but I noticed a huge difference post facial. Tamlyn showed me what came from my skin after the facial (prepare yourself!) and it is no wonder my skin feels smoother and my make up is applying easier.
Tamlyn was so kind throughout my treatment. It was obvious she wanted me to get the most relaxation from the treatment (perfect for mums with extreme exhaustion levels!) but I loved that she also talked me through the process so that I knew what to expect.
