Dermabrasion is an effective skin rejuvenation procedure designed to smooth the skin’s texture and improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and skin that has been affected by a variety of conditions. The dermabrasion procedure is only performed by on of our highly trained plastic surgeons.
Dermabrasion can provide texture renewal for skin that has been altered by aging, acne, and trauma. The procedure involves the use of an oscillating instrument which planes the skin to even it out and lead to a smoother, more level appearance.
Dermabrasion typically takes only about 15 minutes to perform, but can last up to an hour for larger or more numerous treatment areas. The procedure is relatively painless, and any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. It generally takes about 5 to 7 days for the treated area to be completely healed, and any redness to the area should fade gradually over time.
