Is a dermaplane a safe procedure?
When performed by a well trained professional, dermaplaning is very safe.
Will my hair grow back darker or thicker?
No, hair does not grow back darker or thinker from dermaplane treatments. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplaning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse and affected by hormones. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge, this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.
How often is the procedure performed?
Dermplaning may be performed every three-four weeks. The skin needs to complete its normal monthly rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
Not all skin types may benefit from dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.
