We all have unwelcome hair. “Peach fuzz hair,” or villus hair is the short, fine translucent hair that appears on the face, chest, neck, back and arms. This peach fuzz is sometimes hormonal and grows more as hormones change. While this hair may be barely noticeable, it bothers many women. Shaving is only a short-term solution, and not always effective depending on the body region. In fact, after shaving peach fuzz, the hair may grow back darker!. Lasers and electrolysis don’t do a good job. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion also aren’t effective for peach fuzz hair removal. So, how do you remove “peach fuzz” hair? The answer is a treatment called dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning for Peach Fuzz Hair Removal
The best way to remove peach fuzz is a breakthrough treatment called dermaplaning, or blading. This is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. At True Med Spa, the dermaplane treatment is done by our experienced aestheticians who use a blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove peach fuzz.
Results of Dermaplaning **
Dermaplaning provides noticeable improvement immediately, as your skin has a smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. You’ll enjoy seeing it disappear from neck, arms, all parts of your body. This fuzz hair will return softly, and will not become coarser because of the treatment. There’s an added benefit to the smoother texture and fresh skin appearance because as your skin care products will penetrate the skin with greater ease.
Dermaplaning Treatment in Scottsdale
If you have specific conditions, such as extremely sensitive skin, redness, rosacea or visible facial veins, then you’re in luck. The dermaplane treatment at True Med Spa is an excellent choice for patients with sensitive skin. There is no down time after the procedure. Immediately, you will enjoy your beautifully smooth skin.
However, unlike pain-free laser hair removal, the effects of dermaplaning treatment are not permanent. Within the next 3-4 weeks, you may want a follow-up appointment at True Med Spa to continue the effects. The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days. Dermaplaning treatment removes about 2-3 weeks-worth of dead skin cells so it’s best to wait about 3-4 weeks between treatments.
The side effects are virtually nonexistent with dermaplaning, however this might not be the best treatment if you suffer from acne. The oil from the sebaceous glands needs to travel up and connect with the vellus hair in order for it to be excreted. If the hair is removed and the oil builds up, the glands are obstructed and may cause more breakouts. If you have acne and are interested in facial hair removal, schedule an appointment at True Med Spa to see what your options are.
Treatments to Pair with Demaplaning
Dermaplaning is gentle enough that you can go back to work, or get another treatment in the same visit. If you’re looking for a longer day at True Med Spa, ask about getting a chemical peel done immediately after dermaplaning peach fuzz removal. This is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. Lactic acid peels will hydrate and further exfoliate dry and normal skin while a glycolic acid peel is strong enough to combine with dermaplane treatment for oily skin.
