This is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure aims to reduce fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks. It is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle before going back and having the treatment done.
The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area. It is important to leave enough time in between treatments to let the hair’s growth cycle be completed.
There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker. Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz), the hair will grow back the same size and colour. It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry. It is safe for most people, with little to no risk of side effects.
