How does it work?
It is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great procedure for patients who are pregnant or nursing and want a deep exfoliation, but cannot use chemical peeling agents on their skin during this time. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair can cause a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Will my hair grow back darker?
The hair does not grow back heavier or darker after epidermal levelling, since this is a concern to some. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before treatment.
