This is a common concern because of experiences with shaving and plucking in the past. Superficial vellus hair will grow back at the same rate and texture. Dermaplaning is a term that may not be that familiar to many people but Dermatologist Greenville is providing this treatment with discretion.
What does Dermaplaning mean?
Those that are new to cosmetic treatment may have heard of dermabrasion, but this is different. The idea here is to offer a more gentle treatment of the skin to remove excess vellus hair. This is more commonly known as peach fuzz.
While the treatment is uncommon, it could prove to be helpful for many people.
Procedure of Dermaplaning
The procedure here is actually pretty straightforward. Specialists use a scalpel to lightly shave the epidermis. This removes any fine hairs on the surface of the skin as well as dead skin cells. It is a non-invasive alternative to dermabrasion that doesn’t take much time at all.
Is it safe?
Yes. The idea of a scalpel can sound scary at first, but there is no risk here. This isn’t as intense as dermabrasion and doesn’t carry the same risks of scarring. In fact, experts commonly suggest this to pregnant or nursing mothers as a safe substitute for chemical peels.
Will my hair come back darker and thicker after Dermaplaning?
This is a common concern because of experiences with shaving and plucking in the past. Superficial vellus hair will grow back at the same rate and texture.
What can you expect from a Dermaplaning session?
At the end of this session, patients will find that there is an improved appearance to their skin. The procedure will remove the worst of the hair and dead skin. This can then lead to a cleaner, fresher look to the face as oil and dirt is less likely to build up in the hair follicles.
Refine your skin
Dermaplaning can help you to accomplish the smoother skin by expelling harmed, dead skin cells.
