Dermabrasion involves the delicate sanding of the skin to even out skin texture and tone. It uses a wire or diamond brush or burr to remove the upper layers of the skin allowing new, more even skin to be formed in its place.
It is commonly used for scars and deep lines around the lips. It is also used during procedures for rhinophyma. Dermabrasion can be performed in the office or is frequently done with face lift surgery and laser procedures.
Most patients experience some swelling and oozing after the procedure, but are able to return to work within a few days.
Call for a consultation with Dr. Kristin Egan to determine if dermabrasion can help to improve your appearance.
