What is vellus hair?

Vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) is found all over your body and is typically very fine and light. It is different to terminal hair which is found on top of the head, underarms and pubic area. Some people may find that this vellus hair is darker or longer and more visible in sunlight or when applying make-up. You cannot prevent vellus hair from growing as it is found all over the body apart from the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.

Is it safe to remove vellus hair?

Yes, it is perfectly safe to remove vellus hair and will result in a smoother skin texture, providing a better canvas to apply skincare and make up onto.

What can you do to remove vellus hair?

  • Traditional hair removal – Threading/waxing, these are not recommended for vellus hair as this forceful removal can result in the hair growing back thicker
  • Hair removal creams – May be effective for some people but can result in allergic reactions and skin sensitivity
  • Dermaplaning – A professional treatment that uses a sharp blade to gently remove the ‘fluffy’ vellus hair while also exfoliating away the dead skin layer. It will not make your hair grow back thicker or darker. Once your hair begins to grow back, it might feel different because the hair was cut straight across, but it's actually the same texture as it was before and will grow at the same speed
