What is Dermabraison?

What is Dermabraison?

Dermabrasion is a skin treatment procedure that uses a rapidly rotating device to sand the outer layers of your skin. After dermabrasion, the skin that grows back is usually smoother and younger looking.

 

Dermabrasion can decrease the appearance of fine facial lines and improve the look of scars, such as those caused by acne. Dermabrasion can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.

 

During dermabrasion, your skin will be numbed with anesthetics. You might also have the option of taking a sedative or using general anesthesia, depending on the extent of your treatment.

 

Skin treated with dermabrasion will be sensitive and bright pink for several weeks. The pinkness will likely take about three months to fade.

 

Dermabrasion can be used to treat or remove:

  • Scars caused by acne, surgery or injuries
  • Fine wrinkles, especially those around the mouth
  • Sun-damaged skin, including age spots
  • Tattoos
  • Uneven skin tone

 

Dermabrasion can cause various side effects, including:

 

  • Redness and swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Changes in skin color
  • Infection
  • Scarring

 

Consult with your doctor before you book your treatment.
