Dermaplane BB Glow Treatment at Green Door – Review

I was pleasantly surprised when I received invite to do a Dermaplane BB Glow treatment at Green Door Salon in Randpark Ridge Shopping Centre.  The first thought was what is Dermaplane BB Glow treatment? So even before I did some research I responded and accepted the invitation. Let’s be honest who will say no. Probably a few people but stress have taken a toll and after my last Micro-needling treatment (You can read my experience here) I knew no matter what I will be happy with the result.

Chantal the Somatologist confirmed that it is the Dermplane with Korean BB Glow treatment; she advised that the Salon is offering it as a once off treatment and not the way hype in Korea as semi-permanent makeup. It is recommending doing before a function so that your skin can look smooth and radiant. She explained that after two days my makeup will look flawless and my skin radiant.  You have the choice to do this more regular especially if you do not like to wear makeup to just give your skin a nice radiant glow.

What is Dermplane

Dermplane is an established exfoliation technique used in Asia, dermaplaning is now one of the most requested treatments in New York skin clinics, too. Essentially, the treatment involves using a sterile, surgical-grade scalpel to carefully shave, or scrape, the top-most layer of skin and fine hairs from the face. The concept can sound terrifying, but for many, it’s the secret to clear, even, smooth and hair-free skin. It does not cause irritation or any downtime afterwards. This is similar to the “face shaving” that every second YouTube influence has a video on how to.

Procedure

I have been thinking of doing this but o my word my hand is not steady. My “peach fuzz” is not that noticeable. But getting an opportunity to have this done professional was just what my skin needed. The experienced therapist will use a 10-gauge scalpel held at a 45-degree angle to manually exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin cells and vellus hair [the peach fuzz that’s too fine to be caught by lasers].

Dispelling Myth

Let’s just look at the rumours: no matter where it grows on your body, shaving vellus hair does not cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. … After removing the vellus hair, your skin will instantly feel and look smoother and brighter.  And no vellus hair will not grow back thicker!!  Dermaplane is an excellent rejuvenation treatment for the skin, and really delivers a youthful, bright complexion.” Is dermaplaning right for you?

Which Skin Types
It can be done on any skin type, say, experts, except those with acne and there’s zero truth to the idea that shaving makes hair grow back darker and coarser. You could do it at home, but you’d need a photographic-studio level of lighting to pick up the fine hairs, as well as a steady nerve – and hand – so this is one procedure best left to the experts.

Korean BB Glow Treatment

BB Glow is one of the latest beauty innovations trends from South Korea. Using scientifically proven nano needling technology to safely infuse nutrient-rich tinted BB cream into the top layer of your skin. The BB Glow treatment will reduce redness and will leave your skin looking radiant with a beautiful glow two days post-treatment.

Benefits of BB Glow Treatment?
BB Glow will instantly and perfectly even out all your blemishes and discolourations. It’s a perfect way to have amazing skin for special events. BB Glow will not only cover up skin flaws it will also hydrate your skin. It will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, assist with rosacea to cover up redness and broken capillaries. The BB Glow will not wash off leaving you’re amazingly glowing and flawless. It may also contain anti-ageing ingredients, vitamins and antioxidants that will give your skin a healthy youthful glow.

BB Glow Safe?
BB Glow is very safe as it uses a nano needling technology and does not go deep in the skin. Also, all the BB serums are free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol and allergens.

My Treatment

I arrived at the Salon and Chantal the Somatologist took me through to the treatment room. Its winter here in sunny South Africa and a nice touch was that the bed had a heated blanket making it cosy and welcoming.

  • Chantal started with cleaning my face, this is to remove all surface oils or debris. After cleansing my skin she opened the medical scalpel and started with the Dermplaning. I did not experience any discomfort while she was removing the “peach fuzz” and the top layer of dead skin cells. This took about 10 – 15 minutes.
  • After she completed the dermplaning, she cleansed my face and applied Meso Serum (transparent). Nanoneedle infuses the transparent meso serum into my skin to create a brighten and hydrate the skin.
  • She shade matched me and then applied the BB Serum shade to my skin. She used then infused the BB Serum with the Nanoneedle for about 15 minutes.
  • A mask is then placed over the BB Serum to keep the BB Glow Serum from drying and providing extract hydration to soothe my skin.
  • After the nanoneedle, she massaged the remaining BB Glow Serum into my skin leaving my skin with a beautiful radiant glow. I know we not done yet but my skin looked amazing at the point.

Final Thought

This is one of the most amazing treatment, my skin was naturally glowing, even, smooth and hair-free after the treatment. The second day after the treatment my skin looked amazing and I felt like I had a glow from inside. I would highly recommend the treatment and will be booking my next appointment shortly.

The benefit of this treatment offers immediately visible benefits it improves the skin condition and texture without overstimulating the skin.  The results are visible with wrinkle improvement, even skin tone, and glow all at the same time.
