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

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

While many people love the smoothness after we remove dead skin and vellus hair, there are a few other interesting benefits you might enjoy from dermaplaning, including:

  • Fast Results & A Beautiful Glow

Most people notice an improvement in their skin immediately, and dermaplaning can brighten your complexion and give you a more youthful glow. Most people notice a more even skin tone, as well. There’s no downtime with dermaplaning, and after the treatment is complete, you can go right back to your normal routine.

  • It’s Chemical Free!

While we do use a gentle cleanser on your skin prior to the treatment, no chemicals are used with dermaplaning, only our special scalpel. If you are searching for a natural, chemical-free way to exfoliate your skin, dermaplaning can be a great option.

  • It’s Gentle On The Skin

While some redness may occur, dermaplaning does not damage the skin. We simply gently scrape away the dead skin and hair and there’s no damage done. There are at-home dermaplaning kits, but we typically recommend that you consider booking an appointment with an experienced professional aesthetician as this is the safest option.

  • It Can Reduce Pore Size

Dead skin can trap oil and dirt in your skin, even with a good daily skincare regimen, and this can cause pores to become larger. Remove that dead skin and hair and the pores often reduce in size, which is always a bonus.

  • Your Makeup Routine Will Improve

When we remove dead skin and hair, most people find that makeup goes on a lot smoother than before and, as dermaplaning can reduce the appearance of blotches or uneven tones in your skin, it can simply be easier to apply makeup without having to use concealers and other additional products.
