I think people should know my experience with Summer and proceed with caution if they choose to use her Dermaplaning procedure. She assured me that she has performed the service at least 100 times and upon my results, I question if she has really done so.
She was extremely rough on my face, running the blade very quickly and haphazardly over areas. I now have multiple cuts all over my skin. Dermaplaning is supposed to be very gentle, the skin is not supposed to be penetrated at all.
Not only that, but she ran the blade through my eye area, and went into my eyebrow. She shaved off the tail end of my right brow!! You can ask any professional esthetician, they never go into that area, EVER. When c,
I told her about the brow and she replied that she goes in the eye area because a lot of people have little breakouts there. In the process, she takes it upon herself to shape the brow. NO. NO.NO!! While that may be true, I don’t think anyone in their right mind would go into such a delicate area with a scalpel (unless you are a certified doctor).
Once done, she showed me my face and I was in shock. She said she had to go in with the blade and dig into my blemishes. I now have scabs all over my face accompanied with slanted cuts everywhere. Again, I point out that Dermaplaning does not include penetration of the skin. If she wanted to perform extractions,
she should have told me that’s what she was doing and used the correct tools. Not a blade. I told her this and she refunded my money, which I give her credit for. I was willing to just let this fiasco go and put it behind me.
But now waking up today and seeing the scabs from the cuts that I did not notice when I came home yesterday, I just had to write this as a precautionary tale. I can’t speak for any of her other services, but DO NOT use her for Dermaplaning.
