What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is a contouring skin treatment that is performed with a rapidly rotating brush or wheel, used to slough away the outer layers of skin, allowing fresher, healthier skin to develop in its place.  This option is most useful for those who are concerned by bothersome scars, skin growths, or discolorations.  While the resulting improvements leave the face looking younger and with fewer blemishes, patients must understand that this treatment is abrasive and will require not only local anesthetic but also an extended healing time of several days to a few weeks.

What are the benefits of Dermabrasion?

·        Improvement in the appearance of scars, age spots, skin growths and more

·        Improved skin contour and sun damage

·        Results continue to improve over a course of several weeks to months
