Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a scapel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment for those that want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream. Dermaplaning is a first choice for anyone who have excess vellus hair on the skin. Although merely an old wives tale, many clients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.
