Dermabrasion is a deeper form of exfoliation that can help improve the appearance of the skin. This can be an effective procedure for reducing acne scars, treating wrinkles around the mouth, and camouflaging traumatic or surgical scars.
How do I prepare for treatment?
Preparation will be different for everyone. You may be required to stop taking certain medications, avoid certain skincare products, as well as the sun, before your procedure. During your consultation, the required preparations will be discussed.
Will the procedure hurt?
You will be numbed during the procedure using a local anesthetic. This should keep you comfortable. After the procedure, there may be some discomfort, which can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication.
