Unlike removing terminal hair. You shouldn’t feel “stubble” as vellus hair regrows. The life cycle of vellus hair is around 4 – 6 weeks.

Will your hair grow back thicker and darker?

Shaving or Dermaplaning cannot change the structure of hair growth. Hair type and density are determined depending on factors such as body location, age, gender and hormones. Removing hair from the epidermis cannot change these factors. When a new hair grows from the follicle, it is thicker and the base tapers out to a fine point at the tip. When the hair is depilated, it is cut off at the thickest part of the hair shaft. When the hair continues to grow, it will grow with a thick blunt end, versus the tapered end of a new hair. This difference makes hair appear thicker and darker. Vellus hair will not appear thicker or darker upon regrowth as the nature of the hair is ‘fuzzy’ and not coarse as with terminal hair on the other parts of the body.
