Torn between the ones on dermafile.com and Shelley Hancock's. Anyone use either or both and can share info?
Awesome plan you have, Sheila! It's next to impossible to get into certification classes for peels and micro here in WI. There are about 2 classes a year offered at one school. It's so annoying!!
And as affordable as the 3 pack is, I can only handle one right now. If I were to order just one, which type would be the best one to order for acne scars, hyperpigmentation, lines???
I'm so happy to see ya'll getting excited about these fabulous tools!! Don't be afraid of the coarse file though. It's really great for that thick sun damaged skin and male skin. It has to do with the pressure you use when filing. You can use the coarse with only the weight of the file and it's not really that harsh....or you can use the coarse and get in there with some pressure to achieve a deep exfoliation. Make sense? Have fun!!
I have used all three.. and love them! I did in fact replace my micro. machine with them. I've used them on wet (water) skin, lightly over glycolic cleansers and enzymes. Always beautiful results.
One thing I do regret is advertising as Dermafile treatment. Clients are finding them on Amazon for $200. One client told me she had found them on Amazon when she googled Dermafile to see what they were (even though I have a video on my website demonstrating a treatment). She has ordered her own set of 3!! and wanted to know if I would lower my price if she brought in her own. She also stated, once she'd had a treatment with me she would do her own Dermafile treatment at home and it would save her so much money. I may change the name of the treatment and lose the Dermafile reference altogether.
Billy...I'm so happy you wrote this post. My distributors on amazon are supposed to be getting esthetic license numbers for all orders they take. This is not cool. I am so sorry. I will have a word with them.
On the bright side...I'm happy to hear that you love your dermafiles!!
Thank you Shelley. Good to know. I'm so happy I have them. I also use on dry skin, really the same procedure as for the NewApeel Diamond Micro. Love them! :-) Looking forward to seeing in August!
Hey Shelley, just went to Amazon and checked on Dermafile and it clearly states "must provide esthetician license number." Hopefully they will stay on top of this and keep them out of clients hands.
Hi Elaine.....looks like this thread was started quite some time ago. I sold the Dermafiles for about 6 years I believe. Fabulous tool! I have moved on to another exfoliating tool though. The DermaDisc. Great exfoliation now on a vibrating hand piece. You'll have to contact Dermafile directly if you are interested in it.
Here's the info on the DermaDisc: http://www.shelleyhancock.com/dermadisc.html
Can you tell me why you stopped marketing the dermafile and decided to offer dermadisc instead? What are some of the benefits of the dermadisc, especially in comparison to the dermafile?
