Frequently Asked Questions
It’s a professional treatment that requires an expert, technique and a purpose-built hand piece/blade tool designed specifically for the removal of short, fine, thin, light-coloured and barely noticeable hair otherwise known as ‘Vellus Hair’.
Dermaplaning was created for the removal of vellus hair, aka “peach fuzz”. It also acts as an excellent exfoliation for your skin leaving your face nice and smooth.
It’s highly recommended to seek a professional as a surgical blade is worked over the face removing the outer layers of dead skin cells as well as any finer hair (ideal for blonde hair that cannot be treated with laser technology).
The removal of vellus hair should not stimulate hair growth but it’s important to understand that this treatment isn’t for everyone.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types as the procedure works similarly to a peel but it’s always best to discuss your individual conditions with a professional beforehand.
Ideally you should avoid direct sun exposure for 5-10 days post procedure and be very diligent with SPF protection. It is also advised to avoid anything which may irritate the skin while it heals.
