Get Softer, Smoother Skin with Dermabrasion

If you’re looking for a way to achieve softer, smoother skin, dermabrasion may be the answer. Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that can correct dull, rough, scarred, and blemished skin by improving its texture and appearance. Here is what you need to know about this procedure and how dermabrasion could benefit you.

What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses an abrasive instrument to remove the top layer of skin. This eliminates the rough, scarred surface skin and reveals the healthier skin beneath. Not only does the treatment leave you with smoother and more evenly textured skin, but it also reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

How Does Dermabrasion Compare to Other Skin Renewal Treatments?

Dermabrasion has greater power for skin renewal than microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels. Its effects are similar to strong chemical peels, with several distinct advantages. With dermabrasion, there is no risk of pigmentation changes (which can happen with chemical peels and laser treatments). Also, dermabrasion can be safely performed on all skin types. This unique advantage makes dermabrasion a viable skin renewal option for a much wider range of individuals. Individuals with darker skin tones can often achieve excellent results with dermabrasion, with no risk of the side effects that are common with other skin rejuvenation procedures.

What Can Dermabrasion Treat?

Dermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. These include wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, acne scars, rough skin texture, and more. Dermabrasion can be performed on small areas of the face (such as around the eyes or mouth) or on the entire face, depending on your needs.

Who is a Candidate for Dermabrasion?

Candidates for dermabrasion want to correct fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin texture, scars, and other signs of moderate skin damage and skin aging. To get this treatment your skin must be generally healthy, with no active infections, wounds, or similar issues. Candidates also understand that because the outer skin layer is being removed, the treated area may have temporary redness for up to four to six weeks after the treatment.

What is Dermabrasion Like?

Dermabrasion is performed as an outpatient procedure. Anesthesia or sedation may be used to decrease sensation during the treatment. Your surgeon will use dermabrasion tools to abrade the skin of one small section, then repeat until the entire treatment area has been abraded. Once the procedure is complete, you can return home. Rest is recommended, and you may wish to take some time off work while your skin heals.

What Does Dermabrasion Do for the Skin?

Dermabrasion can improve the look of aging skin and soften damaged skin. Because it removes the older skin, it can significantly improve skin texture. Dermabrasion can smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and textural irregularities, and also get rid of acne scars and other similar scars. In general, dermabrasion makes the skin look younger and healthier, with long-lasting results.

How Long Does Dermabrasion Last?

Once your skin has healed after dermabrasion, you will be able to observe remarkable improvements that can last for many years. The longevity of your results will depend on your age, skin type, and how well you take care of your skin. As you age, your skin will naturally begin to show signs of aging again. Dermabrasion combined with attentive skin care and sun protection can help to slow down this process and keep your skin looking and feeling healthy long term.

Dermabrasion could significantly improve your skin texture and appearance, giving you a softer and more youthful appearance. To book your dermabrasion appointment today, call (303) 232-8585 or contact us online.
