Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
+ Does hair grow back after dermaplaning?
Many people are under the impression that shaving hair causes it to grow back thicker and darker, but that is actually not the case. Dermaplaning will not cause the vellus hair on your face to grow back thicker or darker. Re-growth after shaving may feel slightly different because the hair has been cut straight across but the structure of your hair will not actually change at all.
+ Is dermaplaning bad for acne?
Dermaplaning is not ideal for acne. Aside from the fact that if you have lots of active breakouts, we have to skip around them and you are not getting a full treatment, taking that hair off of the face can leave it very exposed and can potentially cause more acne if you do not follow post-care correctly.
