Dermabrasion Treatment Philadelphia

Dermabrasion treatment or dermaplaning are methods of skin resurfacing, intended to treat irregularities like acne scars, wrinkles, pre-cancerous growths and other problems. The procedure is often described as a controlled method of surgical scraping.

The doctor uses an abrasion device to remove the outermost layers of skin, which are typically damaged or irregular. Dermabrasion can be a simple spot treatment on a specified area or it can be done to refinish the entire face.

Who is a good candidate for dermabrasion?

If you exhibit irregular skin texture, you may be a good candidate for dermabrasion. Some of the common skin conditions treated with dermabrasion are below:
  • Acne scars
  • Rhinophyma
  • Scars (surgical or injury)
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Seborrheic keratoses
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Angiofibromas
  • Rhytides

The Procedure: How Dermabrasion Works

Dr. Rosen uses a special dermabrasion device to refinish the skin. This dermabrader is basically an electric motor with a special abrasive tip. With each patient, Dr. Rosen can select a technique, rotation speed, and pattern to precisely control depth of abrasion. With even movements, Dr. Rosen passes the dermabrader over your skin to create even skin contours and correct irregularities.

Who Should Not Undergo Dermabrasion?

Skin resurfacing procedures have the potential to alter your skin pigmentation. If you have dark skin, ask Dr. Rosen which skin refinishing technique is the safest for you. He may recommend dermabrasion, a chemical pee, laser skin resurfacing or some other procedure. Potential dermabrasion patients should notify the doctor if they are prone to lichen planus, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, keloids, psoriasis, or hypertrophic scars.

What to Expect After Your Dermabrasion Treatment

There are some important postoperative steps after dermabrasion. For a minor spot dermabrasion treatment, ointment or saline may be the only applications needed. For a full facial dermabrasion, a combination of dressing, gauze, and netting may be necessary during your recovery.
