" The doctor or aesthetician moves the dermatome, which appears like an electrical razor, backward and forward to remove the leading layer of dead skin. The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother. The therapy might soften great lines and wrinkles and relieve hyperpigmentation, or unequal complexion. Temporary side effects may consist of: Red and swollen skin from the scratching; Soreness; A burning or tingling sensation for about 48 hours after the treatment. It's not common for your hair to grow back thicker or darker. But in uncommon cases, dark hair might grow near your chin or "sideburns.
