Dermaplane Service in Denver
Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. I use a disposable sterile, surgical scalpel blade to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine peach fuzz (vellus hair). This service also includes cleansing, extractions, a relaxing facial massage, hand treatment, masque, hydration, and protection to give you a pampering session of relaxation!

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have never had a dermaplaning treatment in Denver before, here are some of our most commonly asked questions answered:
What are the side effects of dermaplaning?
If your skin is in good condition, there are no side effects of dermaplaning. However, if you have very sensitive skin or any skin conditions such as keratosis pilaris or rosacea, dermaplaning can cause irritation and may not be suitable for you. This is the same for inflamed acne – dermaplaning can’t be done over inflamed acne since this can make your skin redder, more inflamed, and delay the healing process. We’ll be able to let you know if dermaplaning is suitable for your skin during your initial consultation.
What oil is best for dermaplaning?
Applying a light layer of oil to the skin prior to dermaplaning helps provide a smooth barrier. This helps reduce sensitivity and over-drying of the skin during and after treatment. All oils we use are light-weight and natural so they are absorbed well into the skin and don’t cause any nasty reactions.
How do I treat my skin after dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning leaves your skin more vulnerable, so it’s important to be extra kind to your skin after your treatment and focus on skincare. This means applying a nourishing, soothing moisturizer to ensure your skin doesn’t dry out. If you plan on going outside, always apply an SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from UV. The vellus hair will eventually grow back, so you’ll need regular follow-up facial appointments to keep your skin smooth.
Will dermaplaning make me break out?
No, dermaplaning facial treatments do cause breakouts. In fact, this treatment can help prevent breakouts by exfoliating the skin and removing the build-up of dead skin cells that clogs up your pores. However, if you already have acne, dermaplaning can irritate the area and cause more redness, so it shouldn’t be carried out on skin that is breaking out.
Should I get dermaplaning or laser hair removal?
Dermaplaning is a gentle treatment to remove peach fuzz from your face. Laser hair removal is a much harsher treatment that targets thicker, darker hair (usually on other areas of the body). Although laser hair removal can be used on the face, this is a more specialized treatment for targeting dark hair. Dermaplaning is much better for removing build-up and exfoliating the skin while removing peach fuzz on the face at the same time.
Can I wear makeup after dermaplaning?
Absolutely! You can apply your usual makeup after your dermaplaning facial treatment. However, for the very best results, we recommend letting your skin breathe for the remainder of the day and focusing on skincare by applying a light moisturizer before bed to soothe and nourish the skin overnight. This will help reduce redness and irritation as much as possible and help you wake up with a rejuvenated glow.
