Does it cause hair to grow back thicker and darker?
No. Dermaplaning does not affect the actual hair follicle. This means it won't affect the way hair re-grows.
Every individual hair follicle has its own individual DNA, which we are born with.
This will determine whether it is vellus, or 'peach fuzz' (light, thin) or terminal (thicker, darker). Terminal hairs are predetermined. They tend to appear due to hormone changes i.e. pregnancy, menopause, and hormonal abnormalities.
Dermaplaning is gaining in popularity because it removes vellus hair from the face. When the vellus is removed, excess oils and dirt are also removed from the skin. This allows for make-up to have a flawless finish.
Does it hurt?
Dermaplaning does not hurt at all; it tingles slightly and some people find it quite relaxing.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning except that occasionally the client will appear a little red after a session for up to an hour.
Can anybody have a dermaplane?
Most people can, but not everyone. A full assessment will be made to assess your suitability for dermaplane treatment.
