What is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a procedure used to improve the skin’s texture. It is used to smooth fine wrinkles and the uneven surfaces that result from scarring, acne, or similar problems.
How is a Dermabrasion Performed?
Dermabrasion is performed with rotary diamond and Carborum discs and essentially works like “sanding” a piece of wood. To avoid discomfort, either local anesthetics and sedatives or a general anesthetic are used.
What Can I Expect After a Dermabrasion?
A Dermabrasion leaves the treated area with a thick brown crust that separates in seven to ten days. The underlying skin appears reddened and usually requires three to six months to return to a normal hue. During this interval, the area can be covered with cosmetics as desired but must be protected from direct sunlight. Dermabrasion is usually confined to the facial area. The results of a Dermabrasion procedure are limited by the skin’s thickness and the depth of the lesion being “sanded.” Shallow scars or acne pits respond better than deep, narrow, round pits.
How Much Does a Dermabrasion Cost?
The cost for a Dermabrasion will vary depending on the severity of your case and techniques used for treatment. At your consultation, Dr. Fodor will be happy to discuss your options and cost based on your needs.
