Dermaplaning does not make your hair grow back thicker or darker, and it’s not just expensive shaving. Shaving is done at a 30 degree angle and dermaplaning is done at a 45 degree angle. The exfoliation and hair removal benefits are much better with dermaplaning because of this.
We have two types of hair on our bodies. The fine peach fuzz is called vellus hair, and the thicker hair on our heads, legs, underarms, etc is called terminal hair. When we go through puberty, the increase in testosterone hormone levels causes a lot of the peach fuzz on our bodies to turn into terminal hair. This is why even women with a hormone imbalance from conditions such as PCOS, will sometimes notice thicker, coarse hair growing on the chin and jawline.
The way hair grows is determined by your genetics, your age, and your hormones. And a razor or a scalpel or wax will not change that. If you have blonde peach fuzz on your face and you dermaplane it, blonde peach fuzz is what will grow back. It might feel prickly for a couple of days because you cut the hair off at a blunt angle, but after a few days… back to peach fuzz. If you have coarse hair on your jawline and you dermaplane it, coarse hair it will grow back. Cutting it off at the surface absolutely will not change the physiology of your hair. If it did, I’d be shaving my head every couple years to see if I could grow a thick head of hair again LOL.
Don’t worry, you’re not going to end up with a beard if you dermaplane your face!
We’re heading into a busy busy season for the salon and spa world, now that school is back in and we’re hurtling towards the holidays, which I LOVE!! This is just your general reminder of spa policies. The fine print can be boring, but it’s necessary to keep things running smoothly.
~All appointments must be booked online. This is the quickest and most secure way to book your appointment, as I don’t keep the spa phone with me outside of business hours. If you don’t see a time you need, please contact me to be added to the cancellation list.
~24 hour notice is required to cancel or reschedule appointments. Cancellations with less than 24 hour notice are charged 50% of the appointment booked, no shows are charged 100%. If you are sick though, please reschedule. I’m not trying to catch the stomach bug or anything.
~ If you are going to be running more than 5 minutes late, you MUST let me know to see if I can still fit you in. I’ll always be as accommodating as possible, but I won’t run late for the next client, out of respect for their time. If you’re running too late to still be seen, it will be counted as a late cancellation.
~ Kids are absolutely welcome to come with you for your appointment, but they must stay in the spa with you and cannot be left unattended in the courtyard with the pond, for safety reasons. Just please note that you are responsible for any damages, such as squirting makeup testers onto the chairs.
Thank you so much for reading all of that, and I look forward to tending to your skin and brows as we transition into fall!
Hello and happy spring!
It’s time to do some spring cleaning, and be sure to not leave your skincare out. Here are few simple tips for going into a new season!
Toss old products. Most skincare products have a one year expiration date after opening, ESPECIALLY sunscreen, so be sure to use as directed by your esthetician, and get it used up before it expires.
Speaking of sunscreen, now is a good time to find a new one, before lake and beach season starts. Protect the investment you’ve made in your skin over the winter with your skincare treatments, and don’t leave the house without it. I have one I love, that goes on very matte and doesn’t get greasy. It’s available at the spa if you need one!
Be ready to switch over to a lighter moisturizer, as humidity increases.
Antioxidants provide an extra boost of protection from the sun and other environmental factors that age the skin, so consider adding one into your morning skincare ritual.
Finally, book a facial with your esthetician and get your skin professionally exfoliated and hydrated. It will feel amazing after the winter season!
