I am located at 40 North Ave, in Webster NY. I am in The Beauty Loft, which is the same building as Joe's Upscale Barbershop and Reflections Salon. The entrance is on the side of the building, near the Waffle Factory. The door has signs for both "Joe's Upscale Barbering & Beauty Loft" and Green Tea Esthetics. When you open the door, take the stairs, and The Beauty Loft is on the right side. You'll see the salon chairs and waiting area. If my spa room is open you can come on in. If my door is closed you can have a seat in the waiting area.

Once the vellus hair is removed will it grow back thicker? No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks. (There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies: Vellus hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body. Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas.) Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
How often can I get dermaplaned? Every 3-4 weeks Is there any downtime afterwards? No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft, plus makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish. This is a must have procedure before an important social event or television appearance. Can men get dermaplaned? Yes they can, but only non-bearded areas can be dermaplaned.
