When you touch your face, what do you feel? While you may feel soft and smooth skin, there may also be some small hairs, almost like peach fuzz. This hair may not seem like much, but it may actually be impacting the application and effectiveness of your makeup! However, dermaplaning is a gentle but effective exfoliation treatment that may not only remove these pesky hairs but also address unwanted blemishes from the skin. Explore potential treatment options during a consultation with our team at Neroli Spa & Beauty Lounge in Charlottesville, VA!
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment to remove excess buildup of dead skin cells and vellus hairs from the skin. This topical treatment uses a scalpel-like tool to gently remove these build-ups from the surface of the skin.
While this treatment may be used to remove “peach fuzz” vellus hairs, it may also be used to minimize the appearance of unwanted imperfections, such as:
- Acne scars
- Dull or uneven skin texture
- Dull or uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Signs of aging
- Sun damage
Dermaplaning primarily offers cosmetic benefits. While it may be an excellent choice for a refreshed complexion, removing the “peach fuzz” may also promote the smoother application of makeup for long-lasting enjoyment.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
These simple superficial treatments are performed in the comfort of our Virginia spa. A tool similar to a scalpel is used to remove the build-ups from the skin. There is little to no discomfort associated with the experience, and the sensation is comparable to a cat licking the skin.
There is no set downtime associated with dermaplaning treatments, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities. However, skin may be slightly red or tender.
Most enjoy results from dermaplaning immediately. Results may last for up to a month, but will vary for each person.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dermaplaning may be performed on most skin tones and types. It is a safe and effective choice for most healthy adults with realistic goals and expectations for treatment outcome.
While this may be a good solution for achieving a smoother and clearer complexion, it is important to remember this is not intended to be used for dramatic hair removal. It also cannot reduce hair growth caused by other medical conditions or similar concerns.
A consultation with our team in Charlottesville can help determine if this exfoliating treatment is a good fit for you and your concerns. As a series of treatments may be recommended to create and promote the best results, they can also help you develop your unique treatment plan.
