For Dara Levy, the creation of DERMAFLASH is the culmination of her love of beauty and wellness. Known as the go-to "beauty maven" in her circle of friends, she was also generous and eager to share her discoveries. Dara took her passion for all things aesthetic to a new level when she opened a luxury medspa in Chicago's Gold Coast in 2009. For the next five years, Dara put both her creativity and diehard passion for the best lotions and potions to work while treating some of Chicago's most famous faces with her signature treatments. One of her breakthrough treatments was called DERMAFLASH, a unique twist on the concept of dermaplaning to exfoliate the skin. The in-spa response to DERMAFLASH was so amazing that Dara had the idea to try to replicate the premise and results in a handheld device that would be simple for anyone to use. After many rounds of brainstorming sessions, a handful of prototypes, and recruiting lots of her friends and her two daughters' friends as testers, DERMAFLASH was born.
DERMAFLASH is Dara's first beauty creation, but she has more innovations in the pipeline. "I want to break new ground by giving women solutions they can use at home or on-the-go to address all of their beauty challenges," she says.
