August 2019 • 29 lactic acid, a targeted serum and hydrating eye treatment to the standard version—with services like laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peels or a HydraFacial. She notes that dermaplaning pairs perfectly with these offerings, because it exfoliates so thoroughly that complementary treatments work on the new skin rather than fi ghting to penetrate dead skin cells. Afterward, Brown's clients consistently rave about the immediate results, commenting on how smooth their skin looks and how easily their makeup goes on. "It's instant gratifi cation," she says. Emily Davis, owner of Color Up Therapeutics CBD Wellness Center in Denver, has received similar feedback from guests who receive the Dermaplane Treatment (60 min./$90). "It's a full dermaplane facial, which includes a double cleanse to effectively remove all traces of makeup, sweat, oil and pollution. A CBD facial oil is applied before dermaplaning to act as a buffer and protect the skin," explains Davis. Light extractions, a circulation-boosting CBD face massage, and cooling jelly mask complete the service. In the seven years since she started offering the procedure, Davis has noticed a continual rise in its popularity—and a comparable decline in microdermabrasion. "I recommend dermaplaning to everyone," she says, reporting that approximately half of her clients opt to add it to their regular facials. Davis says that it's easy to perform with low overhead costs, and that some guests tell her it's the only procedure that doesn't leave their skin red or irritated. "I've even had clients say they're grateful for the facial hair removal without the trauma of waxing," she notes. Guests visiting Ara Spa Services in Thompson's Station, Tennessee, can try dermaplaning three ways: the Dermaplane Express (30 min./$60) involves a quick cleanse, tone, dermaplane and customized fi nishing cream; Dermaplane Glow (60 min./$90) includes a cleanse, tone, dermaplane, massage, mask and moisturizer; and a Dermaplane Facial Add-On (20- 25 min./$50) simply incorporates the procedure as part of a facial's exfoliation. Although a lot of estheticians perform the service on dry skin, Ara owner Jessica Moreton uses a special serum tailored to each client's complexion. "This cuts down on potential nicking and discomfort," she says. Her guests are always impressed with how smooth and soft their skin feels afterward. "They look in the mirror and say, 'Wow, I can't believe it!' They're smiling and radiant," she enthuses. "People want that healthy glow, and they appreciate that they don't have to worry about a reaction. It's a very simple procedure with dramatic results." u
