Exfoliating is one of the best and easiest ways to keep your skin healthy and looking great at any age. Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics offers dermaplaning treatments for men and women in Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, and surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells, dirt, and oils from your skin. It also eliminates the fine vellus hair from your face. The treatment gives your skin a rejuvenated appearance, and it also helps skin care products penetrate better. Women find that makeup products go on easier after a dermaplaning treatment.
What Can Be Treated with Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for many common cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Deep acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor skin texture
- Dull complexion
Is Dermaplaning the Same as Microdermabrasion?
Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion remove a thin layer of damaged skin. Dermaplaning removes slightly more damaged skin. Microdermabrasion can help with a dull complexion, but it does not work for deeper issues, such as wrinkles and scars. If you are concerned with wrinkles and other issues that originate in the deeper layers of skin, dermaplaning is most likely the best option.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is performed with a surgical scalpel that is gently pulled across the skin at an angle. This removes the dead cells from the surface to reveal healthier cells. The treatment also removes vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz.” This type of hair is not necessary, so it can be removed without any unwanted risks. Unlike other hair on your face and body, vellus hair does not grow back darker or thicker, so there are no downsides to removing it with dermaplaning treatments.
Downtime is not required after a dermaplaning treatment. Your skin may feel slightly sensitive, especially in sunlight. You may also notice a light pink color to your skin. These symptoms only last for a short period of time. You will notice a smoother texture to your skin. Additionally, skin care products and makeup go on easier after dermaplaning. We typically recommend dermaplaning treatments every three to four weeks to maintain the results.
