Brow in door skin

My coworker has a newer Saab, and she hit the door somehow and now it has a brow with a low spot right above or underneath, I don't recall. She asked me if I could do something about it and said I prob could, but I wanted to check with the powers that be here to check my methods before laying a hand on the door.

It doesn't need to be a perfect repair, just make it so it's not so obvious. My idea was to use my slapper to gently tap down the brow while working the low spot out with a dolly while I tap. I was going to put some tape on the slapper to avoid marring the finish. I repaired the brows in my Mustang roof this way with good results, but we all know that wasn't a finished surface.

I was also wondering if I should warm the area on the door so the paint isn't brittle. I told her I won't do it if it looks like things will only be made worse. This is just supposed to be a bump and done thing. With the car that is, not her.
