~What Is Dermaplaning?
This treatment option is a really gentle, painless way to exfoliate the skin. An alternative to microdermabrasion and peels, dermaplaning is often chosen by those who want skin resurfacing without contact with exfoliating chemicals. For that reason, it’s an excellent option for women who are pregnant or nursing and for people who just prefer a more natural, chemical-free approach.
Dermaplaning is best suited for:
Dry and normal skin types and those who want to get rid of peach fuzz. If you’re a blond, you may already know that laser hair removal isn’t an effective option for you. Dermaplaning is.
~What is the process?
~Will my peach fuzz grow back thicker and darker after dermaplaning?
No! Peach fuzz is the nickname for vellus hair, that soft, nearly invisible, downy hair that shows up on the faces of adult women. It serves as a temperature control mechanism both insulating and cooling the body. As a result, this type of hair does not grow back stubbly, prickly, thicker, or darker when cut. The coarser, more color-dense type of hair, called terminal hair, does.
~How is the treatment done?
To perform the treatment, we use a delicate, sterile, surgical-grade blade to manually scrape the surface of the skin. While holding the skin taught, the dermablading tool is swiped in a gentle upward motion.
With all those dead skin cells and peach fuzz out of the way, topical serums and products are better able to do their work because they can penetrate the skin and absorb more easily.
