dermaplaning treatment on woman

Kiss Your Peach Fuzz Goodbye!

Innovative Aesthetics offers Dermaplaning in Denver, CO. Smooth skin is one of the hallmark signs of youth. As we age, the texture of the skin changes in response to many factors including lifestyle, sun exposure, poor circulation, and more.

However, skin can renew itself, especially when helped with treatments such as Dermaplaning.

More About the Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It protects you from infection, encloses the organs and fluids within your body, controls your temperature, secretes fluids like sweat and oil, and provides sensory input to the brain.

The skin contains blood vessels to nourish the skin cells and hair. It also contains many nerves and glands. Although our skin looks like a single surface, the skin is made up of multiple layers of cells. The body constantly generates new skin cells to replace older cells on the outside that have died and shed. This function helps explain why exfoliation works to make skin smoother.

What is Dermaplaning?

At first, this treatment may sound a little bit scary. However, Dermaplaning is one of the gentlest and most comfortable aesthetic services available. The treatment involves a scalpel, which is used to scrape away dead skin cells. This treatment is done very gently and aims to remove dead skin and other minor imperfections on the skin.

This treatment is extremely beneficial for those who are not interested in or do not qualify for other treatments that use more aggressive techniques. For example, chemical peels are used to help rejuvenate the skin. However, some individuals have skin that is too sensitive for a chemical peel. If that is the case, Dermaplaning is the perfect alternative.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Another benefit that this treatment offers over other types of exfoliation treatments is that it removes vellus hair. Also known as peach fuzz. Peach fuzz can lead to an accumulation of bacteria, which leads to acne. Dermaplaning can help prevent acne, while also leaving individuals with a smooth complexion.

Many individuals enjoy the ease of makeup application after treatment. Because the treatment leaves you with a smooth complexion, makeup glides on very smoothly. Skincare products and treatments are also more effective after Dermaplaning treatments because they are applied directly to new cells.

The benefits of dermaplaning do not stop there! In a way, your skin kicks into overdrive, which helps trigger cell rejuvenation. In the weeks that follow treatment, your skin produces more collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are extremely beneficial for your skin, and they help skin look youthful and fresh.

How Does Dermaplaning Rejuvenate Your Skin?

Dermaplaning rejuvenates your skin in the same way that other exfoliation treatments do. When the top layers of skin are removed, the skin will look rejuvenated because the healthy skin underneath the dead skin cells is revealed.

Are You a Candidate?

Dermaplaning treatments can be performed on almost anyone.

Unlike Chemical Peels which are contraindicated in pregnant and lactating women because they act at the cellular level, and may increase the risk to the baby, Dermaplaning is the opposite. It can be performed on pregnant or lactating women.

Are There Risks?

Just as you can cut yourself when shaving, the Dermaplaning scalpel might nick your skin. These are minor injuries and heal almost immediately, just as a shaving cut does.

Occasionally, people have a reaction to the cleaning solution. Some people report that the skin feels dry, or appears red for a short time after treatment. Too frequent treatments, intervals of less than the three-week minimum, increase the risk of skin irritation and may cause the skin to peel.
