When to consider dermabrasion
Concealing unsightly acne scars has been part of your make-up regimen since your 20’s. Your daily camouflage routine grew even more involved when you noticed the sun damage – those weren’t youthful freckles, they were brown spots!
When your fine wrinkles began to deepen into creases, you took matters into your own hands. You purchased one of the latest at-home microdermabrasion products praised by your friends and acclaimed by the editors of your favorite beauty magazine….and were crestfallen when they didn’t noticeably “smooth, fade and soften” your complexion as promised.
Over-the-counter remedies may work for people with very slight skin imperfections, but to rid your face of more pronounced wrinkles, creases, spots and scars, step away from the lighted mirror and talk to the professionals at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery to see if Dermabrasion is right for you.
Dermabrasion is a very effective in-office procedure that, after just one treatment, will dramatically improve the appearance of your skin and give your face a smoother contour. Unlike microdermabrasion, which only removes a very thin layer (10 to 15 microns) of dead skin cells, Dermabrasion exfoliates your skin to a much deeper level.
After sterilizing your face and applying a numbing solution, Dr. Robinson will use a hand-held machine that operates at high speed to remove your deep wrinkles and scars, raised scar tissue, blotchy skin and uneven texture. The process can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the areas being treated.
Dermabrasion requires minimal to no downtime, though the healing period increases slightly with more extensive procedures. It’s common to experience some mild scabbing, tenderness, redness or sensitivity after your appointment. Dr. Robinson will recommend over-the-counter products or prescriptions to treat these conditions, which typically subside within a week or two. Your face will be more susceptible to the sun’s damaging rays following Dermabrasion, so he’ll also advise you to protect your newly emerging skin for the next few months when you spend time outdoors.
If you’re ready to reveal your skin’s inner beauty and liberate yourself from vain attempts to smooth your complexion with expensive concealers, visit Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery for an evaluation to see if you’re a good candidate for Dermabrasion.
