Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a surgical scalpel, specifically designed to scrape away 3-4 weeks of accumulated dead skin cells and vellus hair.
It is a comfortable, relaxing procedure that can be combined with other services to improve their efficacy. With this technique you will notice improvement in the tone and texture of your skin right away. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, newer, younger skin cells will be revealed.
This unique approach stimulates the production of fresh, young skin cells, while helping your skin to breathe easier. Active ingredients in skin care products can penetrate deeper, resulting in healthier skin. Treatments are gentle and take very little time, ideal for your busy lifestyle. With no downtime, you’ll return to your favourite actives right away. You’ll enjoy the confidence that comes with having healthy, younger looking skin. Dermaplaning is one of Noosa Laser Clinics most popular treatments and is available at our Noosa clinic each day.

How often should I come in for Dermaplaning?
You’ll love the way your skin looks and feels from the very first treatment. We recommend coming in every four weeks to maintain results and continue to see improvements.
Will the hair grow back thicker or darker?
No. It is physiologically impossible for vellus Hair to grow back darker or thicker. We have 2 hair types of hair on our body and face. Vellus hair (AKA peach fuzz), as the name implies, is finer, softer and very often lighter in colour. Opposed to Terminal hair which is coarser and darker. If you had blonde hair on your head and we shaved your head, it would still grow back blonde, not black. So vellus hair will always grow back light and soft.
