Firstly, for those of you who haven’t heard of Dermaplaning, this is one of our most requested treatments – especially before a special event 💃 Dermaplaning gives gentle, yet controlled exfoliation, while also temporarily removing fine vellus hair (peach fuzz 🍑 ) from the face. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, we simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes ridding the top dead skin cell layer and hair, giving a brighter, radiant looking complexion ✨✨ There is no pain or downtime with Dermaplaning and results are immediate.
The most common question asked is ‘will my hair will grow back thicker’, and the answer is no 🙅♀️ You simply cannot change the structure of the hair by cutting it, as it does not affect the actual hair follicle. Every individual hair follicle has its own individual DNA, which we are born with. This will determine whether it is vellus (light, thin) or terminal (thicker, darker). Terminal hairs are predetermined, they tend to appear due to hormone changes such as pregnancy, menopause and hormonal imbalances. Some medications can also increase hair growth. Once the hair is cut ⚔️ it has a blunt edge, but this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered – just cut off at a thicker point with no tapered end. So therefore, Dermaplaning does not affect how your hair would regrow. It will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment ✨✨
I hope this puts your mind at ease! We’ve been doing this treatment for many years now, and is still a salon favourite for glowing skin 🤩
