It's common to feel a little stubble as the hair starts to grow back after dermaplaning. This doesn't mean that your hair is thicker or coarser; it has to do with the way each hair was cut. The hair feels different from you, but it has exactly the same texture and color as it did before dermaplaning. The idea that shaving your body hair will cause it to grow darker and darker again is a myth that has been around for far too long.
Millions of people shave their legs, armpits, face, or other areas just as often as they do every day. Shaving is simply a close cut of the hair and has no effect on hair follicles and therefore has no effect on hair growth. A more intensive Dermaplaning session can leave you with some tiny cuts or chafing on your skin, especially if you have an irregular skin texture. Shaving and dermaplaning not only leave you hairless for a period of time, but they also leave you with a smooth complexion.
Many people notice that they get more compliments on their face after removing facial hair. This is because shaving can also cause greater renewal of skin cells and gently exfoliates the skin, while dermaplaning provides a deeper, more targeted exfoliation. A dermaplaning session lasts about half an hour, may cause some redness, and you have no downtime. Dermaplaning is offered in beauty salons or spas, where a licensed doctor or esthetician uses a surgical scalpel to scrape the face with gentle movements at a 45-degree angle.
While some exfoliation methods (such as scrubs) aren't recommended for darker skin, dermaplaning is 100% safe. While dermaplaning is considered safe, there are some conditions and situations that can make the procedure more risky. If you've experienced similar redness in a facial treatment, you have a good indicator of how long the redness induced by dermaplaning will last. If you shave your face, you may experience ingrown hairs several days later, a risk that doesn't exist with dermaplaning.
In addition, performing dermaplaning on another person differs from doing it on your own face due to the angle and view of the surface. By gently exfoliating the skin, dermaplaning also makes it easier for acne treatments and serums to penetrate pores to prevent and treat breakouts. Dermaplaning is a quick and safe way to make the skin's surface younger, smoother and more radiant, especially if it's dull. For starters, shaving will leave hairs, but it will only slide through the dead skin layer, while dermaplaning goes deeper.
During a dermaplaning treatment, your beautician will scrape dead skin cells off the surface of your skin, providing you with a much more effective exfoliation treatment. Dermaplaning can be a wonderful exfoliating treatment that can rejuvenate and refresh the skin while removing that annoying, fluffy peach fuzz. It will take several sessions to see permanent results while dermaplaning provides them immediately. If your dermaplaning blade contains any bacteria or if you have bacteria on your hands, you are more likely to experience an outbreak after treatment.
The risk of dermaplaning cuts is minimal when the treatment is performed by a certified professional who uses a single blade much sharper than those sold in pharmacies.
