What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is a simple cosmetic procedure that helps smooth the skin surface and reduce the visibility of certain skin conditions. It involves carefully removing the outer layer of skin, the epidermis. We suggest this treatment for our clients who want to achieve a smoother skin surface with fewer smile lines and other thin wrinkles. Dermabrasion is a specialized form of facial treatment that uses a special tool to skim the skin surface. During the consultation, we’ll examine the facial skin closely and determine if this treatment is right for you.

A Look at the Dermabrasion Procedure

This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. During the treatment, the special tool is passed over the skin surface until most of the epidermis has been removed. Most wrinkles and superficial scars can be treated in this way. In other words, we don’t have to remove any of the lower dermal layers.

More About Dermabrasion

This procedure is often performed when the goal is to smooth the skin surface by eliminating tiny creases and smile lines. In some cases, we perform the dermabrasion treatment multiple times over the course of a certain amount of time for optimal results. This allows the lower dermal layers to recover and begin the process of creating newer, healthier tissue.

Advantages of Dermabrasion Treatment

Some of the skin rejuvenation treatments out there are rather aggressive. Some individuals simply aren’t ready to undergo more invasive procedures. Also, people with darker skin tone may experience bleaching from another type of facial treatment.

Dermabrasion can be safely performed on all skin tones and textures. It’s simply a matter of how deep the skin layer removal should be. We can customize a treatment that is suitable for various corrections including acne or injury scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and age spots.
