Dermaplaning in Birmingham & Chelsea, AL at Skin Wellness Dermatology

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that has become increasingly popular and there's a good reason why. This mechanical exfoliation treatment removes peach fuzz, along with the top layer of dead skin cells on the face, leaving you with smooth and glowing skin. While providing a deep exfoliation without the use of harsh chemicals, this treatment also offers little to no downtime and few risks of side effects. 

What is Dermaplaning?

During your dermaplaning treatment, your dermatologist or licensed aesthetician will use a surgical-grade scalpel to gently remove the top layers of dead skin cells, the stratum corneum, along with the layer of peach fuzz, or vellus hair on the face. 

Since no harsh chemicals are needed, it’s a very low-risk treatment and perfect for those who are pregnant or have very sensitive skin. Plus, since there’s little to no downtime, you can go about your day as soon as you’re done. 

Discover the Benefits of Dermaplaning

Since dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin and peach fuzz, you’re going to enjoy smooth and radiant skin almost instantly. Over time, you’ll also see improvement in a range of issues such as fine lines, sun damage, dry patches, and even deep acne scars.  

After your dermaplaning treatment, you’ll find that not only will your skin care products penetrate deeper and become more effective, but your makeup will go on incredibly smooth. This is why many patients prefer to have this treatment done before holidays and special occasions. 

It’s also important to note that, contrary to popular belief, your hair will not grow back darker or thicker after dermaplaning. Along with growing back at the same speed, it will also be the same texture and color as it was prior to the treatment. 

Why Dermaplaning Is Not a Do-It-Yourself Treatment

Though dermaplaning comes with very few risks when performed by a medical professional, there are more risks involved when using someone who’s inexperienced. These risks include irritation, infection, and even permanent scarring. To get the best and safest results, dermaplaning should always be performed by a dermatologist or licensed aesthetician.
