WATCH: Face Shaving Q&A with Dr. Gina Danesh

All too often we get asked the same question repeatedly: “Will shaving my face result in growing hair that is thicker and darker?”

The answer is NO!

That is simply an old myth that holds absolutely no truth. The hair on a woman’s face is called vellus hair, which is soft, fluffy and translucent. The hair anywhere else on our bodies is called terminal hair, which is thicker and darker.

Despite what you might have heard growing up, it certainly makes perfect sense that one type of hair will not suddenly turn into another kind of hair.

Take it from me–I’ve been using DERMAFLASH weekly for well over a year, and I definitely don’t have a beard of any kind!

Better yet, take it from Dr. Gina Danesh in Beverly Hills.

I recently visited her office and asked her to explain this myth and put it to bed once and for all.

Here’s what she had to say:


“Removal of facial hair with DERMAFLASH 2.0 LUXE or by any other means does and cannot promote hair growth. Increased hair growth as a result of shaving is a grandma myth. Hair growth is hormonal and only a change in hormones can change hair growth” Dr. Gina Danesh explains.

And there you have it, straight from a doctor’s mouth.

Flash freely and never worry about sprouting darker, thicker hair ever again!
