Dermabrasion help to smoothen the skin by refinishing the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Dermabrasion is also often used to treat scarred skin left by accidents, previous surgery and acne. It also is sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses.
Dermabrasion can be performed on small areas of the skin or on the entire face. They can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar revision or chemical peel.
