Dermaplaning at BLU Clinics
THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING
The main two benefits of Dermaplaning are manual exfoliation, and “peach fuzz” removal which will help to brighten and smooth your skin.
The procedure may help skin rejuvenation by removing dead skin from the surface and promote natural cell regeneration. Dermaplaning indirectly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as hyperpigmentation or an uneven skin tone, by allowing better penetration of the cosmetic products into the deeper layers of the skin.
Although Dermaplaning should not be done during active acne, it is very helpful for acne sufferers. It reduces future breakouts by eliminating debris and oils that get trapped in the hair. The efficiency of this procedure is highly dependent on the type and texture of your skin, as well as your medical history.
DOES HAIR GROW THICKER AFTER DERMAPLANING?
During puberty vellus hair is replaced with thicker, terminal hair in some parts of our body. Once the maturing process is complete, no further change may occur, and therefore the majority of vellus hair will never become terminal. Removing vellus hair does not result in thicker or darker regrowth.
However, there are some medical conditions that may exacerbate facial hair growth within. Such conditions include excess of androgen hormones, hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause and puberty. Furthermore, anorexia nervosa is known to induce excessive vellus hair growth.
Patients with darker, longer facial hair may be advised to undergo other more permanent hair removal methods such as waxing or laser hair removal. with one of our specialists will help to determine if this is the case. While some patients may believe they have more hair, in most cases it is due to being used to a hairless face and becoming more aware of hairs once they appear.

ARE THERE RISKS TO DERMAPLANING?
Generally, Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. When carried out on patients with healthy skin, by properly trained and certified professionals, this procedure is completely painless and non-irritating. Individuals with very sensitive skin may experience minor discomfort or redness after the treatment or within 24 hours. Dermaplaning is not recommended for individuals with skin cancer, active dermatitis, or severe acne.
As with any other procedure, minor complications are possible but extremely rare. Small superficial skin cuts and infections are examples of such complications.
