It’s a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure.
So what is it?
Dermaplaning is a quick, noninvasive, painless procedure in which surface dead skin cells are manually scraped away and fine facial hair is removed. As one of the most effective facial exfoliation treatments, dermaplaning stimulates radiant, healthy skin and leaves the skin smooth and soft. This requires the use of a sterile, edge to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the outer most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
Regular treatments of dermaplaning have been known to:
- Increases absorption of products
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation
- Effectively prepares the skin for chemical peels and lasers
- Creates Healthier, more radiant appearance
No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest, or back. The other type of hair is called terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows, and the lower face of men.
Hairs are always one or the other and they are not damaged or altered by the process of cutting or removal. So after dermaplaning, vellous hair grows back with its same characteristics.
