What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a manual, painless, skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical scalpel blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. There is no down time. This procedure also removes the fine vellous hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is a relatively quick procedure that leaves your face polished, smooth and radiant.
Who can benefit from dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a versatile procedure that can be used on almost anyone. Removing epidermal skin allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers, making this a great add-on treatment to facials and chemical peels.
Dermaplaning is a great treatment for:
- Promoting smoother skin.
- Removing soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil.
- Enhancing the effectiveness of other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, by providing deeper product penetration.
- Reducing fine lines.
- Minimizing mild acne scarring.
- Fading superficial hyperpigmentation.
Will the hairs on my face grow back thicker?
No, the hair on the face is called vellous hair and it is physiologically impossible to grow back thicker. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies. Vellous (tiny translucent blonde hair) and terminal (thicker hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, eye brows, mustache and beard for men and legs). Vellous hair when cut or removed will grow back the same.
