Does Vellus Hair or Peach Fuzz Grow Back Thicker or Darker After Dermaplanning?

Fuzz Hair

No, peach fuzz hair does not grow back thicker or darker after shaving or any other form of removal.

This is a common myth, but it is not supported by scientific evidence.

The appearance of thicker or darker hair after Dermaplanning is simply an optical illusion.

When hair is shaved, it is cut bluntly at the surface, which can make it appear thicker or darker because the tapered end of the hair is removed.

Terms of Thickness

However, the hair itself remains the same in terms of thickness and color.

The growth and characteristics of hair, including thickness and color, are determined by genetics and hormonal factors.

Shaving or removing peach fuzz hair will not alter these factors.

If you notice any changes in hair thickness or color, it is likely due to natural growth patterns or other factors unrelated to the removal method.
