Do you have annoying acne scars or pitted skin that just doesn’t seem to improve no matter how many promises your skin care products make? Textured skin can be a frustrating concern, especially when it can’t be concealed with makeup. Treatments, like dermaplaning, are designed to dramatically reduce the appearance of scarring as well as brighten your complexion. Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery Center is committed to helping you on your journey to smoother and brighter skin, by offering dermaplaning treatments from our skilled team of skincare professionals.
Dermaplaning is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive skincare treatment that involves removing the top layer of skin. This may sound gruesome, but it is not nearly as intense as the procedural verbiage may indicate. The first layer of skin is made up of mostly dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and peach fuzz hair. When removed, a smooth, clean, and fresh layer of skin is revealed.
Dermaplaning requires the use of a surgical scalpel that is gently moved across the face in a movement similar to shaving. Rather than simply removing hair, your provider will skillfully remove the dead skin and dirt that contribute to textural concerns. The exfoliating nature of the procedure triggers collagen production that contributes to smoother, fuller, brighter, and more even skin.

The minimally invasive nature of the procedure means it requires no downtime. Dermaplaning is a great skincare solution for on-the-go patients looking to see the following improvements regarding their skin concerns:
- Minimize Pores
- Brighten Skin
- Smooth Skin
- Improve the appearance of scars
- Removal of unwanted hair
If you suffer from a pre-existing skin condition like eczema, psoriasis, or cold sores, You should talk to your healthcare provider before starting treatment so as not to further irritate the skin.

Dermaplaning procedures require no downtime, making them a convenient treatment option for those with busy lifestyles, or for anyone looking for a treatment with fast results. Because the top layer of your skin has been removed, your face may be slightly red and tender immediately following treatment, but this should subside after a day or two. It is also recommended that you stay out of direct sunlight after treatment.
Skin regenerates on a near monthly basis, so for optimal, long-lasting results, treatment should be repeated every 30 days. Working with the skincare professionals at Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery Center, you can team up to create a skincare routine to be maintained between appointments, which could prolong the amount of time between dermaplaning treatments.
