How To Look Younger With Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is one of the many cosmetic procedures that is used for facial improvement. It is a mechanical procedure that treats wrinkles and pigmentation. It is also called surgical skin planing. A small abrasive wheel or brush rotating at a high speed is used by the doctor to abrade or remove the skin with the wheel. Once the old skin is removed, the new skin starts to form in some days. This new skin doesn’t have any of the earlier defects or blemishes. Thus dermabrasion can be used for improving acne scars, scars from accidents or diseases, sun damage, tattoos, liver spots, chicken pox marks and facial lines.
But the doctor will perform dermabrasion on you depending upon his/her assessment of the skin you want to get treated and the results he/she expects from dermabrasion. They will check your medical history to see if you have any active skin problems. If you have herpes simplex, acne, rosacea or similar problems you will have to wait till that problem resolves. Your scar forming tendency is also considered. If you have keloid forming tendency, you may not be a good candidate for dermabrasion. If you are on isotretinoin tablets, you have to wait for some months before getting dermabrasion done. For those with history of cold sores or herpes simplex, you may be prescribed an anti-viral treatment.
