Dermabrasion is a non-chemical treatment that helps patients reduce lines, wrinkles, facial scars and other pre-cancerous cells. It is an amazing skin rejuvenation technique to bring out the fresh, youthful skin you deserve. Results may vary from person to person.
Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi perform this surgical treatment on an outpatient basis with a local anesthesia. They use a high-powered rotary wheel with diamond particles that act as a sandpaper for skin to remove uneven layers of skin and it also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. An oscillating razor device, called dermaplaning, may also be used to get rid of layers of skin until the doctor reaches an even skin surface. These two treatments may be used together or separately.
Dressings are commonly applied to the treated area and an ointment is usually prescribed by your doctor to aid in the recovery process. Drs. Rosenberg and Lambruschi may prescribe you pain medication for the burning or itching that can occur. Within the week following the procedure, the skin will scab but patients should not pick at this because it will lead to permanent scars. In about 2 weeks, patients are able to return to daily life; however, avoid sun and wind exposure for about 12 weeks.
