Dermabrasion | Skin Resurfacing

Dermabrasion can smooth deep creases such as lines around the mouth, eliminate wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars. A specialized resurfacing diamond-embedded burr is used to remove the outer layer of skin. As the skin heals, it tightens and is replaced with new, smoother skin.

What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion can smooth deep creases such as lines around the mouth, eliminate wrinkles, and improve the appearance of existing scars. A specialized tool is used to remove the outer layers of skin. As the skin heals, it tightens and is replaced with new, smoother skin.

Dermabrasion Procedure

Dermabrasion may be done in the office using topical anesthetic cream prior to the procedure or under light anesthesia if wanted. Pretreatment with Botox may be necessary to decrease movement and prevent creasing during healing. Recovery from dermabrasion takes about one week.
