A local all-organic beauty studio now offers a new skin care treatment that will leave you fresh faced and truly glowing. Read on for the details!
Alba Organic Beauty Studio has one main focus: providing customers with high-quality salon and spa services without using any harsh, toxic chemicals. To continue forwarding its passion for safe and healthy products, but effective results, Alba recently introduced new dermaplaning services.
“Dermaplaning is a safe, provided the person performing it is properly trained, and highly effective exfoliation procedure,” explains Andrea Lauren, owner of Alba Organic Beauty Studio. “It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently ‘shave’ the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair, aka ‘peach fuzz.’ Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful.”
Lauren says that it was the removal of vellus hair as well as its deliverance of exfoliation that encouraged the team at Alba to add dermaplaning to its services. “We wanted to offer dermaplaning as another tool for our guests to have when selecting their anti-aging skin maintenance options,” she explains.
What makes dermaplaning unique is that it is a mechanical exfoliation. An esthetician uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin. They’ll swipe the blade in gentle, upward motions. While it may sound scary, Lauren says when it’s done by a trained professional, it isn’t.
Lauren adds that dermaplaning is a great way to prepare your face to pair with a chemical exfoliation service, as well as other services like an organic skin care facial because removing the top-most layer of skin will allow for those other services to more easily penetrate the skin.
“In addition to exfoliation, removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look,” she says. “Makeup goes on smoother as well. Dermaplaning is the perfect procedure to begin pairing with other treatments, such as our peels and anti-aging facials.”
Dermplaning at Alba is $75 while dermaplaning and a facial is $115.
