Exfoliation and Revitalization With Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin cells and fine hair from the skin's surface. It is also known as epidermal leveling or blading. The procedure is typically performed on the face but can also be done on other body parts. Dermaplaning in Denver is often used to exfoliate the skin and promote cell turnover. It can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. As an added benefit, removing fine hair can often help patients apply their makeup more smoothly and evenly.

Is Dermaplaning in Denver Right for Me?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation treatment suitable for most skin types. It is most popular among those:

  • Looking for a more profound exfoliation experience
  • Hoping to remove fine hair from their face
  • Looking to have a better experience with their skincare products (as it promotes a deeper absorption and effectiveness for treatments in the future)
  • Wanting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

The Day of Your Dermaplaning Treatment

Before your dermaplaning in Denver, the patient's face is thoroughly cleansed and dried. Then a scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle to scrape the skin's surface in upward strokes gently. The process is repeated until the entire face has been treated. This removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any fine hair or 'peach fuzz' that may be present. The result is smoother, brighter, and more even-looking skin. The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients may experience a mild tingling or scraping sensation during the procedure, but it is generally painless.

Your Initial Dermaplaning Consultation

Before your procedure, you must ensure you have all your questions answered. You can schedule a consultation at Dr. Will Thompson’s Denver offices. There, you will begin by discussing your skin concerns and goals. You will be asked about any specific issues you are experiencing, such as dryness, acne, or fine lines. Also, a skin assessment will be done to ensure further there are no issues in the future. The purpose of this visit is to make sure you feel seen and heard as you take the next step in your journey.

Dermaplaning Recovery and Results

Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Avoiding direct sunlight for at least 24 hours after the treatment is important, as the skin may be more sensitive to UV rays. If you need to go outside, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your skin. Additionally, it is recommended that individuals avoid using any harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or retinoids, for at least a week after the treatment. Finally, keeping the skin well-hydrated after a dermaplaning treatment is important. This can be achieved by regularly using a gentle moisturizer and drinking plenty of water.
