Should I try dermaplaning?

While you may be nervous about undergoing dermaplaning, it is an exceptionally gentle and effective treatment for facial skin restoration. At Rashid Putman, our team of professionals are extremely skilled in this delicate procedure, and many of our patients have made dermaplaning part of their regular skincare routine. You will lie back in comfort as your facial skin is professionally exfoliated, with the added benefit of removing any excess facial hair.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). Dermaplaning can also be combined with other MedSpa procedures such as peels and facials.

Some patients want a skin restoration technique that does not involve the use of chemicals or other skincare products. Dermaplaning can be the perfect way to keep your facial skin looking refreshed and restored without the use of any products. The benefits include:

  • Removes soft facial hair which can trap dirt and oil
  • Promotes smoother, healthier skin
  • Reduces the appearance of some acne scars
  • Works for all skin types and colors
  • Immediate results
  • No downtime
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
