      What are the benefits of dermabrasion?

      Dermabrasion is a skin resurfacing procedure where damaged outer layers of skin are removed and this reveals the youthful, smoother inner layers. This is used to treat a range of skin conditions such as acne scars, sun damage, tattoos, scars resulting from surgery or injury, fine wrinkles, age spots, precancerous skin patches, rhinophyma or redness, thick skin on the nose and uneven skin tone.

      What is dermabrasion like?

      Dermabrasion is usually performed under local anesthesia and in certain conditions under general anesthesia.  The skin will first be cleaned. An assistant will keep your skin taut as your doctor used a dermabrader across your skin. This is a small, motorized device that has a rough surface. For large patches of skin, a circular dermabrader will be used and for smaller areas, other points used. Constant, gentle pressure will be used and this will remove the outer layers of the skin and expose new, smoother skin.

      The entire procedure may take a few minutes or a little over an hour depending on the amount of skin that is being treated. If there is a deep level of scarring or a huge area of skin to be treated, it may be performed across sittings.

      Post dermabrasion, the skin will be sensitive and bright pink for several weeks. This may take about three months to fade. There may be some burning, tingling or aching. As the treated area starts to heal, a scab or crust will form over it. The growth of new skin could be itchy.

      Harsh cleansers and skincare products must be avoided. You might be prescribed a thick moisturizing ointment such as petroleum jelly. The sun must be avoided until the skin has healed and later avoided as far as possible. However, when you step out, you must use sunscreen liberally.
