Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, we simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. It is a great treatment for those who have excess vellus hair on the skin, as this hair often causes a build up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client brighter, healthier looking skin.
Dermaplaning 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 eg. pregnancy, menopause and hormonal abnormalities. True, 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. So therefore, Dermaplaning does not affect hair regrowth. Your hair will grow back at the same rate and texture it was prior to having had the treatment.
