Dermabrasion is a method used to help “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a process of controlled surgical scraping. The treatment is able to give the skin a smoother appearance by softening the sharp edges of surface irregularities.
Dermabrasion is most often used for several purposes. The first is to improve the look of the skin on the face left scarred by accidents or previous surgery. A second reason is to smooth out fine facial wrinkles, such as those around the mouth. Dermabrasion can also be used to remove pre-cancerous growths called keratoses.
Dermabrasion can be performed on small areas of skin on the face or on the entire face and at times is used in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, chemical peel or scar removal or revision.
