No, dermaplaning does not alter the texture or color of the hair that grows back. The fine vellus hairs, commonly known as peach fuzz, will regrow at the same thickness and color as before. Dermaplaning only targets the superficial layer of hair on the skin's surface and does not affect the hair follicles beneath the skin.
Dermaplaning is a relatively quick procedure with minimal to no downtime. Some individuals may experience mild redness immediately after the treatment, but it usually subsides within a few hours. It's advisable to avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen in the days following the procedure. Makeup can typically be applied immediately after dermaplaning, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
Yes, dermaplaning can be combined with other skincare treatments, such as chemical peels or facials, to enhance overall skin rejuvenation. This combination can provide more comprehensive results by addressing different aspects of skin texture, tone, and clarity. However, it's essential to discuss your skincare goals and any ongoing treatments with your skincare professional to ensure that the combined approach is suitable for your skin type and condition.
Dermaplaning makes a great addition to your regular skin care routine. The non-invasive nature of this treatment means you can incorporate dermaplaning frequently. We recommend every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain your beautiful results.
Dermaplaning is generally safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. However, individuals with active acne or inflamed skin conditions may need to avoid dermaplaning in areas with active breakouts, as the procedure may exacerbate these conditions. It's essential to consult with a skincare professional before undergoing dermaplaning to determine if it is suitable for your specific skin concerns. Additionally, those with certain skin conditions or taking specific medications may need to avoid dermaplaning, so it's crucial to disclose any relevant medical history during your consultation.
When performed by a professional, dermaplaning is safe and should not cause cuts or nicks. The surgical scalpel used for this treatment has an extremely fine blade that is gently passed over the skin without any force or pressure. This is a very gentle procedure and there is no discomfort, the sensation is the same as shaving.
