metroClinicbe founder Dr Barbara Kubicka was featured in the Metro this week in its feature on women shaving their faces. 

Read the Metro feature in full: Women are shaving their faces now and, according to some experts, it’s not as crazy as it sounds.

The article says that women are buying micro-razors and thin scalpels to remove finer facial hair and some think that the act of daily shaving has improved the condition of their skin.

Some skin experts said it could be beneficial to the skin, as it performs some exfoliation like microdermabrasion, which stimulates skin cell renewal making it look younger. One expert thought that this would explain why men look younger, as through shaving, they exfoliate daily.

However, Dr Barbara Kubicka cautions against shaving if you don’t have to. She cites irritation to the skin as a side-effect, saying:

‘There are more beneficial ways to exfoliate without the side-effects that come with shaving’

Clinicbe in Knightsbridge offer localised hair removal using electrolysis, which is medically proven for permanent hair reduction over a course of treatment. This treats each single hair, one at a time, destroying it at the follicle so that it can’t regrow.

With regard to exfoliation, this is indeed a healthy approach. However, shaving is harsh. Dr Kubicka recommended Dermaroller treatments instead for improving the skin. Alternatively, chemical peels offer intensive exfoliation, stripping away the outer skin cells to reveal fresh new skin and promote the growth of new skin cells.
