When to Dermaplane:

Dermaplaning is a favourite among actresses, models and brides because of how flawless and smooth the skin appears for photographs, as well as for any patients looking for the most gentle facial hair removal technique available.

Targets the hairs so fine or so light in colour that traditional waxing or laser hair removal cannot treat them.

No downtime, no irritation and no pulling of the skin with this method, therefore it’s great for all skin types, even the most sensitive and can be performed on its own or in addition to other skin care procedures.  Book a consultation in Vancouver with us here at Skin Method.

FAQ about Dermaplaning

Is Dermaplaning safe for pregnancy?

Yes, it is safe during pregnancy. This quick and painless procedure gently lifts dead skin cells and baby fine vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) leaving your skin soft and smooth.

Uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave away vellus facial hairs while at the same time performing a surface exfoliation of the skin while lifting away dead skin buildup. It is all performed on the surface of the skin with no contraindications to pregnancy.

Will the hairs grow back thicker or darker?

No, it will not. That is simply just a myth. Because the vellus hairs are different than the hairs on our body, it will not grow back thicker or darker. It will feel rough in some areas while growing in but will be the exact same.

When do the hairs fully grow back in?

The hairs on the face usually grow back within 4-6 weeks. It’s best to space Dermaplaning treatments farther apart to allow the hairs to be removed easier and have less irritation. The longer the hairs are on the face allows the blade to remove hairs easier, and also exfoliate the dead skin cells more accurately.

Regrowth

The peach-fuzz on your face is actually “ vellus hair” which differs from the “terminal hairs” on other areas of the body which grow thick, long and dark. When shaved off, vellus hairs will not regrow darker, thicker or longer. They will regrow just as the same peach fuzz they always were.
