What to Know About
Dermabrasion is a treatment in which the outer layers of the skin are aggressively sanded to create a smooth and evenly pigmented appearance. It can be likened to laser skin resurfacing or a deep chemical peel such as Phenol or TCA. Dermabrasion can treat wrinkles, acne scars, and surgical scars by gently blending them into the surrounding areas of skin. This mechanical process uses an abrasive tool for the controlled removal of damaged or scarred skin, sanding it down to create a smooth surface.
