Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.”
Peach fuzz (vellus hair) is a type of facial hair that’s shorter, softer in texture, and lighter in color compared to other hairs on your body. While not typically visible to others, you may still elect to remove peach fuzz if you want a smoother face, along with better makeup application. Vellus hair also tends to be very short and is usually no longer than 2 millimeters.
Dermaplaning is similar to shaving, but in place of a razor, we use a scalpel-type blade to remove skin cells, hair, and other debris that may be present on the surface of the skin. The continuous exposure of the top layer of skin to UV rays, environmental toxins, and irritants means that it may begin to appear dull. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin to reveal newer skin cells that may make a person’s skin appear smoother and glowing.
Will Hair Grow Back Thicker or Darker After a Dermaplaning Facial?
Dermaplaning does not permanently remove hair. When your hair starts growing back, it’s common to feel a little stubble. This doesn’t mean that your hair is thicker or more coarse. It has to do with the way each hair was cut straight across. The hair may feel different to you, but it’s the exact same texture and color as it was before dermaplaning.
