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 skin’s texture changes due to many factors, including lifestyle, sun exposure, poor circulation, and more. However, skin can renew itself significantly when helped with treatments such as Dermaplaning.

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. It also contains many nerves, glands, and blood vessels to nourish skin cells and hair. Although our skin looks like a single surface, the skin comprises 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 that scrapes 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 highly beneficial for those not interested in or who 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 of this treatment over other 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 and leave individuals with a smoother complexion.

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

The benefits 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 benefit your skin and help it 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 minor injuries heal almost immediately, just as a shaving cut does.

Occasionally, people react to the cleaning solution, and some report that their skin feels dry or appears red shortly after treatment. Too frequent dermaplaning treatments, intervals of less than the three-week minimum, can increase the risk of skin irritation and may cause the skin to peel.
