Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing that want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. It is also a excellent choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so by removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. When the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
