Why insiders are raving about these two skin services together.


Sometimes things are just better together—hot cocoa and marshmallows, Devid Beckham and no shirt, and of course skincare with, well, skincare. That’s because just like Fall + scarves, some skin services are fantastic by themselves, but deliver something truly amazing when combined. The seasonal pairing you need to get the freshest complexion? Best-in-the-biz doctors know the Netflix + couch-level combo in the skinservices world is the Hydrafacial + Dermaplaning. “Dermaplaning essentially preps the skin to receive maximal benefits of the HydraFacial,” explains Dr. Mark McKenna, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of OVME. “First you do the dermaplane, then the HydraFacial.”


Dermaplaning + Hydrafacial

You may have noticed those dermaplaning videos with a slew of online views because watching someone present their ’plane is just oh, so satisfying. What’s going on during the treatment is the top layer of skin is gently removed. “It’s an exfoliation method that utilizes a scalpel to gently remove the most superficial layer of dead and dulling skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion,” Dr. McKenna explains. This technique, which can lift off that “peach fuzz,” removes dry skin and smooths out deep-acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and a sun-damaged complexion.

Also known as microplaning or simply “blading,” this service is simply not the same thing as shaving your face. In fact, men love dermaplaning because of quick skin impact, and it’s not something they’re going to getl from using their Gillette at home. Sure, a scalpel is used, but no scaries here— the 20-to-30 minute treatment doesn’t hurt. Masters of their craft artfully coax off the debris without any distress.


After freshly dermaplaned — that’s the perfect time to get your Hydrafacial. “A Hydrafacial is a medical-grade, “hydra-dermabrasion” facial that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin leaving a more radiant and youthful appearance, Dr. McKenna explains. The best-in-class duality of these two treatments is perfect for you if you’ve ever complained about oily skin, dull complexion, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and uneven texture. And the best part of this duo? No downtime. That’s right — the post duo glow will have you ready to take on the week without a moment’s notice.
