Skin Resurfacing/ Dermabrasion

Individuals with facial skin left scarred by acne, accidents or previous surgery can benefit from skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing procedures can also help smooth out fine facial wrinkles, such as those around the mouth or to remove pre-cancerous growths called keratoses.

There are many methods available for skin resurfacing. Chemical peels use a caustic solution to remove the undesirable layer of skin, while dermabrasion scrapes them away.

Laser, which is the latest technique, removes superficial skin by evaporating it. Each one of these techniques has advantages and disadvantages. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your physical condition and needs to recommend the best option for you.

Dermabrasion helps to smooth the skin’s top layers by surgical scraping or sanding. During the procedure, the outermost layer of skin is removed with a rough wire brush, or a burr containing diamond particles, attached to a motorized handle. The skin is scraped to the safest level that will make the scar or wrinkle less visible.
