Dermabrasion Treatment

Dermabrasion treatment—sometimes also known as dermaplaning—is a method of skin resurfacing that treats irregularities like acne scars, wrinkles, pre-cancerous growths, and other problems through a controlled method of surgical scraping. Using an abrasion device, Dr. Rosen will remove the outermost layers of your skin, taking damaged skin cells, debris, and other irregularities along with them. Dermabrasion can be a simple spot treatment on a specified area or it can be done to refinish the entire face.

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

Dermabrasion: Is it Right for Me?

Skin resurfacing procedures have the potential to alter your skin pigmentation, so if you have dark skin, Dr. Rosen will talk you through your options, and help you decide which skin refinishing technique is the safest for you. 

He may recommend dermabrasion, a chemical peel, 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.
