It’s common to feel a little stubble as your hair starts growing back in after dermaplaning. This doesn’t mean that your hair is thicker or more coarse. It has to do with the way each hair was cut straight across. The hair feels different to you, but it’s the exact same texture and color as it was before dermaplaning.
Let’s set the record straight here with a simple NO. It’s a myth that your facial hair will become either thicker or darker after dermaplaning. It just isn’t possible for your hair to do this, as dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment. The hair will grow back, but it won’t change colour or thickness.
Dermaplaning, which we could also just call, “shaving your face,” because this treatment involves gently pulling a blade along your skin. But! Dermaplaning, unlike traditional shaving, uses a smaller blade to slough off dead skin cells in addition to removing wispy facial hair, so skin is more even in tone and texture.
You should at least wait three or four weeks in between sessions. Dermaplane is a deep exfoliation, removing two or three weeks’ worth of dead skin. Give your skin time to resurface in between treatments.
Please understand that following a Dermaplaning Glow Facial Treatment, you may experience purging. Purging occurs when deep exfoliation treatments have been performed. During facials, impurities have been brought to the surface. Purging can occur in a few different ways once a DG has been performed.
