At Neroli Med Spa & Beauty Lounge in Charlottesville, VA we offer patients an assortment of medical spa treatments, and one of our most popular is Dermaplaning. If you want a smoother, brighter complexion, Dermaplaning can be a good option to consider and there are many benefits associated with this procedure.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and easy way to remove vellus hair from your face, as well as dead skins cells. Vellus hair, which is often just called “peach fuzz,” is found all over our bodies, but many people prefer to have this hair removed from their face and dermaplaning provides us with a quick method for vellus hair removal.
Dermaplaning results tend to last for several weeks, and most of our patients will schedule new dermaplaning sessions every 4-6 weeks or perhaps just whenever you need a quick boost for your appearance. For instance, if you have a wedding or party coming up, schedule an appointment three or four days before the event. Typically, any redness associated with dermaplaning clears up within 24 hours, so you can usually schedule the procedure fairly close to any special event.
When Can I Expect Results?
Dermaplaning results are instant!
Is There Downtime?
No! Dermaplaning patients experience no post-treatment downtime, and may resume their schedules and normal activities immediately after their appointment. It is important to avoid tanning salons and self-tanning products before and during the treatment period, and it is recommended to reduce sun exposure during this time and for 30 days after treatment. You will get maximum results if you use a normal moisturizing cream before and after treatment.
After treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for a few days or use sun protection (minimum SPF 30) if sun exposure cannot be avoided. And be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you are prone to acne breakouts or cold sores.
How Many Dermaplaning Treatments Will I Need?
A single visit, lasting 15 – 20 minutes is all you need to achieve the results of Dermaplaning
