FAQs About Dermaplaning
Although it won’t surprise you that facial treatments to improve skin tone and texture have become wildly popular, it might surprise you to learn just how dermaplaning compares with other treatments. Smooth, youthful skin is in demand now more than ever. Many of you may have heard of dermaplaning, a popular form of exfoliation treatment. However, you may not know exactly how it works.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that involves using a very small blade to softly remove the epidermis, the top-most layer of skin. This sterile process removes dead skin cells that can leave your skin looking dull, discolored, or pitted. The tool also removes fine hairs from the face, called vellus hair or “peach fuzz.” The treatment triggers the release of collagen and other factors that promote growth and rejuvenation of the skin.
What are the Benefits?
Dermaplaning differs from other skin treatments in measures such as how long it takes to complete, recovery time, and risks. Here are some benefits of this treatment for men and women considering it:
- The treatment can usually be completed in just minutes
- Your skin will not peel after the treatment has been completed
- There is no downtime required, so you can return to work after the treatment
- You can visualize results immediately
- The treatment clears weeks worth of dead skin cells
Will My Peach Fuzz Grow Back Darker and Thicker?
This treatment removes the small vellus hairs of the face, which is part of how it helps your face appear brighter, rejuvenated, and smooth. There is the adage that removed hair can grow back darker and thicker, but dermaplaning does not interfere with the follicular pattern of growth of your hair. The vellus hair is not left with the appearance of thick, blunt ends when the treatment is completed.
