Dermaplaning uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells. It also effectively removes the very fine (peach fuzz) hair that is commonly found on the face. This treatment is great for those people who want the advantages commonly seen with professional exfoliation, but have skin that is too sensitive for the suction associated with traditional microdermabrasion.
Your skin is pulled taut while a sterile surgical blade is very gently scraped across the surface. This blade removes dead skin, and vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the face. This leaves the skin ultra smooth and bright.
No! It is impossible to change the structure of your hair follicle by manipulating the hair only on the skins surface. Your hair will gradually grow back exactly how it was before the treatment.
