Dermabrasion

This beauty treatment is a mechanical procedure that used a power-drive (hand held device equipped with a rotating metal wheel) that used a wire brush of a diamond fraise to remove the upper layers of the skin.

The results of dermabrasion are actually permanent, making it an ideal technique for treating skin acne, removing scars or tattoos and promoting new skin growth. When we say permanent, we mean that it has long term effects (up to 1 year or more). Sometimes, patients repeat the dermabrasion treatment but this requires for the skin to be healed completely from the previous session. However, you must keep in mind that this procedure does not prevent new wrinkles from appearing in the natural aging process.

Dermabrasion is a one-session treatment, requiring another yearly session for maintenance. The treatment consists of 6 to 12 sessions, scheduled 2 weeks apart and usually require a once every 2-3 months session for maintenance.

Usually, this technique of skin abrasion requires local anesthesia, depending on the size of the area that is being treated. Before starting, your specialist will clean the region with an antiseptic cleaning gel. After doing so, he/she will start the skin-peeling process using the rotating wheel of the machine until the desired depth of the dermis is reached.
