Dermaplaning with Jessica Hong, MA, LE

Dermaplaning Bay Area

These photos completely illustrate the importance of having total faith in your skincare provider. In the past Hayes Valley Medical Esthetics has used lasers and electricity on my face (sounds scary!) – with fabulous results – and most recently, I had an appointment with Jessica for a dermaplaning treatment. You have to have total trust in someone before allowing them to run a scalpel across your face!

I would not – no matter how tempted I am by deals – want any other team to work on my skin. It’s more than just a treatment, it’s my future with either regrets or feeling great as I put my best face forward. I think HVME understands this and I know they would not provide anything other than a healthy, safe, and rewarding experience.

This dermaplaning treatment was actually relaxing. The scalpel gave a sort of scratching feeling – like being licked by kittens! The bed is so comfy, I dozed. My friend was taking photos or I might have fallen asleep. It took maybe half an hour to treat my whole face.

Ultimate Skin ExfoliationImmediately after, my skin was a little pink, but nothing that held me back from my day. I felt slightly sunburned for an hourish. But no downtime or pain.

(Compared with microdermabrasion, the treatment feeling was less strong, and my skin after was less red.)

The day after my skin definitely had a glow to it. Literally all dullness was removed. I loved how my product soaked in. It was satisfying to know that every cent of product I put on was getting soaked up by fresh skin. I had to keep reminding myself not to touch my face. No peel or exfoliation had ever left me with such soft, fabulous feeling skin.

Having a completely hair-less face, with less irritation than waxing, is another perk of the treatment. Seeing my tinted sunscreen glide on and how much better makeup looks on skin, rather than on peach fuzz is gratifying. I’d consider my next dermaplaning appointment before my next headshots or event. I’d add it to a facial so I get maximum benefit from the products used.

Thanks HVME and Jessica! – Rachel, Saratoga

NOTE FROM HAYES: Thank you, Rachel, for the feedback. We do recommend dermaplaning with a facial – check out our Power Hour Intensive Facial with Dermaplaning or our Dermaplaning Facial.

Excellent service and an overall pleasant experience. Victoria was professional and knowledgeable. She proposed treatments addressing both my anesthetic and medical concerns.. I could not be happier with the results. Also, the Receptionist, Mattie, was pleasant and efficient. I look forward to future treatments.

Hayes Valley is the best! Kate did an incredible job with Dysport removing the wrinkles from my forehead, Sandra gave me great abs and glutes with Emsculpt, and Linda gave me my youthful facial structure back with Sculptra. These women are truly amazing. So glad that I found them!

I love Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics! I've been coming for a while now for Botox and filler treatments. Linda is AMAZING! She knows just the right amount of product needed in all the right places to bring out my best facial features. I feel more handsome every time!!

The front desk staff are super sweet and helpful. They always ask exactly what I want and I never feel like I'm being 'upsold' or encouraged to do anything other than what I came in for. I would highly recommend HVME to anybody that is on the unsure about trying some of the services they offer. You won't be disappointed. Thank you!!

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
