Would you like to improve the look and feel of your skin? Dermplaning and chemical peels are two cosmetic procedures offered at Ogden Clinic in Utah to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and remove damaged layers of skin tissue. Dermaplaning and chemicals peels can be used as preventative measures or as treatment for aging skin.
Dermaplaning treatment is a form of physical exfoliation. During the procedure, your doctor will use a sterile scalpel to gently shave the surface of the skin. This removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells along with the fine hairs on the face known as peach fuzz. Dermaplaning is a quick procedure, lasting no more than thirty minutes and requires no downtime. Dermaplaning can minimize the appearance of acne scarring and create a more even skin tone. While dermaplaning can be a great solution for many people, it is not appropriate for all skin types, including those with oily skin or active acne.
Chemical peels are another form of cosmetic treatment used to improve the skin’s appearance. This procedure involves a chemical solution that blisters and peels the top layer of skin off the face. After the old skin peels off, new skin is revealed that is usually smoother and less wrinkled. Unlike dermaplaning, which is only done on the face, chemical peels can be done on the face, hands, or neck. Chemical peels are known to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, reduce wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage, improve the appearance of mild scars, and improve the look and feel of the skin. Generally, people with fair skin and light hair are the best candidates for this procedure, as it can affect skin tone.
