Dermaplaning is a thorough exfoliation of the skin where a small sterile surgical blade is used to gently clear away dry, dead, superfluous skin cells and unwanted vellus hair (peach fuzz). For optimal results, immediately following derma planing we apply a peel which is an excellent way to make sure the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly into your skin.

After my treatment will my facial hair grow back thicker?
No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called Vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest and back. The other type of hair is called Terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows and on the lower face of men. Because Vellous hair is so fine and different in structure than Terminal hair, cutting it does not make it grow in thicker, darker or stubbly. It grows back with the same exact texture and color as always.
