A medical-grade scalpel is used to scrape across the surface of the skin. The main reason people do it is to remove the vellus hairs on their faces, also known as peach fuzz. Peach fuzz can appear almost colorless, blonde, gray, or brown. Everyone has these fine vellus hairs coating our bodies, and they are meant to keep us warm and add another layer of protection to the skin. But some people’s vellus hairs are thicker and more visible than others, and so they might want to have it removed. It can be tough to get rid of these hairs with typical hair-removal methods like waxing and threading, which makes dermaplaning a better option.
