It all started when I was contacted on Linkedin to work some events for a fairly new company called Derma Flash. I had never heard of the beauty company, but was excited to take on the project. At first I assumed it was a laser hair removal product, but instead I was surprised to find out that it was a face shaving device. Of course, my immediate reaction was how am I going to convince women to shave their face with a $200 device? As I looked into the company and the history of shaving, it all started to make sense.
The practice of female face shaving has been going on for many years. Actresses like Marylin Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor were huge fans of shaving their face so that their makeup would go on smoother for the movies. It is even rumored that Cleopatra enjoyed the benefits of face shaving.
Dermaplaning is a medical spa procedure that takes a 10 gauge scalpel to the face to remove dead skin cells and facial hair. Sounds pretty terrifying? Its looks more terrifying than it sounds. You can find many videos on youtube of women getting this procedure done in a medical spa. Although putting a 10 gauge scalpel to your face can look and sound very intimidating, if done right and by a professional it can be very rewarding.
