Dermabrasion is a surgical skin resurfacing treatment used to correct superficial imperfections. The procedure allows a physician to shape the surface of the skin by abrading the contours to a certain depth. Dermabrasion is commonly used for treating the following imperfections:

  • Acne scars
  • Rhinophyma
  • Scars
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Seborrheic keratoses
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Angiofibromas
  • Rhytides

How Does Dermabrasion Skin Treatment Work?

A dermabrasion device is basically an electric motor with a special abrasive tip. With each patient, we select a technique, rotation speed, and pattern to control the abrasion depth. With smooth and controlled movements, Dr. Will passes the dermabrader over the patient’s skin to create even contours and to remove imperfections.

Who Should Consider Dermabrasion?

Potential candidates for dermabrasion should notify their physician if they are prone to lichen planus, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, keloids, psoriasis, or hypertrophic scars.

After Dermabrasion Treatment

After dermabrasion, there are a few important steps necessary for postoperative care. If you’ve undergone a minor spot dermabrasion treatment, ointment or saline may be the only applications needed. For a full facial dermabrasion, a combination of dressing, gauze, and netting may be necessary to ensure the shortest possible healing time.
