dermabrasion

What is it?

Dermabrasion helps to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of the surface irregularities , giving the skin a smoother appearance. It is often used to improve the fine lines around the mouth or acne scarring. New skin forms in 7 to 14 days and is smoother in texture.


Procedure

Am I a good candidate for dermabrasion?
The ideal candidate for dermabrasion is one with a fair complexion as deep dermabrasion can cause some lightening of the pigment which would be more apparent in patients with darker complexions. Patients with scleroderma or other active skin disorders are not good candidates.

What kind of results should I expect from dermabrasion?
Deep dermabrasion can soften fine wrinkles approximately 50%. Deep dermabrasion will not improve deep, etched wrinkles. Deep , etched wrinkles would be best treated by other procedures such as filler injections. Dermabrasion will not lift sagging skin. Sagging skin will be better treated by facelifting.

Will I be able to tan after Dermabrasion?
Skin that has been resurfaced as a deep treatment might not be able to tan after the procedure. There are other alternatives such as lighter chemical peels and fillers for those patients who wish to continue tanning.


Recovery

The skin that has undergone deep dermabrasion appears oozy and raw after the procedure. Patients are instructed to apply Vaseline to the skin until it has healed. The skin usually heals in 7-14 days. The healed skin appears red for a period of months. This redness can be covered up with makeup. After the redness subsides, the skin has a softer appearance of the fine lines.
