remove the outer layers of skin, usually on the face to get a smoother and shinier skin.

What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion helps to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatment softens the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.

Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles or deep acne scars.

Considering alternative procedures

For "surface repairs" on your face, you may also consider non surgical procedures as microneedling, lasers, chemical peels and other devices. However, dermabrasion uses surgical instruments to remove the affected skin layers, while non surgical procedures are done with machines and chemicals.

The best candidates for Dermabrasion

Men and women of all ages, from young people to older adults, can benefit from dermabrasion. But dark complexions may become permanently discolored or blotchy after a skin-refinishing treatment if not done appropriately. If you have freckles, they may disappear in the treated area.

All surgeries carry some uncertainty and risk

The most common risk is a change in skin pigmentation. Infection and scarring are rare. Some individuals may develop excessive scar tissue (keloid or hypertrophic scars).

Preparing for your surgery

You will be given special instructions regarding the care and treatment of your skin prior to surgery.

Where your surgery will be performed

The surgery will be performed at the Jaju Plastic Surgery Center. It's usually done on an outpatient basis, for cost containment and convenience.

Types of anesthesia

Dermabrasion is done under local anesthesia, combined with a sedative, if required.

The Surgery

The procedure usually takes from a few minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how large an area of skin is involved. It's not uncommon for the procedure to be performed more than once, or in stages, especially when scarring is deep or a large area of skin is involved.

In dermabrasion, the surgeon scrapes away the outermost layer of skin with a rough wire brush, or a burr containing diamond particles, attached to a motorized handle or a hand-held instrument called a dermatome. It evenly "skims" off the surface layers of skin that surround the craters or other facial defects.

After your surgery

Right after the procedure, your skin will be quite red and swollen, tingling and burning.

A scab or crust will form over the treated area as it begins to heal. This will fall off as a new layer of tight, pink skin forms underneath.

Getting back to normal

You can expect to be back at work in about one to two weeks. If you swim, stick to indoor pools and keep your face out of chlorinated water for at least four weeks. Protect your skin from the sun until the pigment has completely returned to your skin- as long as six to twelve months.

Your new look

Refinishing treatments can offer dramatic improvements in the surface of your skin. The pinkness of your skin will take about three months to fade. When your new skin is fully repigmented, the color should closely match the surrounding skin, making the procedure virtually undetectable.
