“Consider derma-planing deep teeth cleaning for the face,” explains Honolulu aesthetician Joëlle Johnson. “Following treatment, makeup applies nicer, and serums absorb more effectively.”

Folklore tells, “Beauty is pain,” yet dermaplaning enthusiasts enjoy rejuvenating cosmetic results, without torment.

“Patients often compare it to a sheet of paper delicately gliding across skin,” Johnson assures.

Whether seeking hair removal or exfoliation, Johnson’s diverse clientele ranges from 18 to nearly 80 years old. Like facials, treatment packages vary greatly dependent upon budget and desired outcome, devout regulars scheduling appointments every four to six weeks.
