Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin, hirsutism. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment. Refrain from using strong peels or waxing right before treatment or using retinols at least 2 weeks prior to treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.
Questions and Answers:
Will dermaplaning make the hair grow back thicker?
Let’s get this rumor done with once and for all: no matter where the hair grows on your body, shaving does not cause it to grow back thicker or darker. Many people think that shaving their legs or underarms will make it grow back thicker which is false. It’s biologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker because of shaving. Shaving simply creates a blunt tip on the hairs, which many people interpret as greater thickness. When you dermaplane, you are removing very, very fine hair called vellus hair. This hair is so thin and soft that removing it with a dermaplaning tool will have little to no impact on how it looks when it grows back. After removing the vellus hair, your skin will instantly feel and look smoother and brighter.
