Dermabrasion uses a rapidly rotating brush to remove the top most layer of skin. A new layer of skin grows in its place that is smoother and more youthful in appearance.
Dermabrasion is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including scars and aging.
The initial side effects are pain and redness, similar to a moderate to severe sunburn. The skin heals after about 10 days. You may be provided medications to reduce any discomfort.
Avoid sunlight for 3 to 6 months after treatment. Dermabrasion may not be appropriate for people who are prone to forming keloids. In additional, people with dark skin may develop new skin that is more lightly pigmented than the surrounding skin, creating lighter patches.
Dermabrasion may be used with other procedures as part of a skin rejuvenation program.
