To me, when I hear the word “dermabrasion” I get a feeling of cold hard instruments poking at my face trying to fix my tainted, blemished skin. Hopefully this isn’t the case and, if not, could you please offer me a little insight and information on a dermabrasion procedure?
Dermabrasion is a procedure used to resurface deeply wrinkled or scarred skin. It is performed by using a sanding device to remove the outer layers of the skin in a controlled fashion. It evens out the skin by allowing the adjacent areas to blend in during the healing process. You need to wear ointment on your face for about 10 days after the procedure and are limited to not wearing makeup for about two weeks.
