Yes people, I’m a scalpel addict…but not what you’re thinking for. I’m all natural 😉. I have a doctor attack me with a scalpel once on month for dermaplaning. If you haven’t heard of this, let alone tried this. It’s something a little different to what you are used to.
I started doing this treatment in LA. Once I arrived to Dubai, I knew it was something I had to find here. So I persuaded CosmeSurge Clinics to bring it to their clinics. (By the way, please don’t trust just anyone to perform the procedure. Make sure they are a respected clinic like CosmeSurge).
This all skin types method is simple, a doctor or aesthetician uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Sounds scary, I know, but I really think is something most women will love doing. So let me give you the benefits.
It takes pigmentation and the outer layers of dead skin cells as well as all the little baby hairs too. This build-up can make your complexion appear dull, flaky, and can even cause breakouts due to clogged pores and hair follicles.
Removing all the dry skin and the dead cells helps the pores to regenerate and it also regulates your sebaceous glands. This will hydrate your skin because it benefits oxygenating it. This will also aid eliminating all the black pores. All this in combination with the glycolic acid will boost a complete new skin.
Results can last up to four weeks, thus, you have to keep up on doing this. My doctor recommends doing it often, like once a month, more or less every 4 to 6 weeks (but not earlier). This way you will maintain your results. I feel once you like it’s something you can’t stop.
Believe me, its something worth doing and results are soooo satisfying. For applying foundations it’s a game changer!
