Dermabrasion is an exfoliation technique that can be used to rejuvenate the skin, diminish scarring, and more. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we are proud to offer this non-surgical solution to the residents of Winston-Salem, Fayetteville and Greensboro, NC.
What is Involved in Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique that uses a special tool to carefully exfoliate the skin. After the damaged skin is exfoliated, new, healthy and vibrant skin will grow in its place.
By exfoliating precise layers of skin, we can eliminate cosmetic imperfections that include scarring, sun damage, and signs of aging. In fact, we frequently recommend dermabrasion as a solution for scar treatment, including acne scarring.
Is Dermabrasion Right for Me?
If you are looking for a way to diminish the appearance of scars, acne scars, facial wrinkles or other cosmetic concerns, you may be a good candidate for dermabrasion. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the dermabrasion treatment to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How Does Dermabrasion Work?
The dermabrasion treatment is performed with a specialized handheld device. This device will be carefully applied to the skin to cause a controlled exfoliation of skin cells. You may feel a scratching sensation on the skin during this process, although most patients find the treatment quite tolerable. After exfoliation, we will apply a moisturizer to the skin to help it heal.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From Dermabrasion?
After dermabrasion, you may notice redness, swelling, or sensitivity of the skin in the treatment area. These symptoms typically fade within about a week. The skin will be sensitive during the recovery period, so it is important to follow the instructions provided by Dr. Contogiannis and avoid excessive sun exposure. However, you should be able to resume most normal activities within a day of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Dermabrasion?
Once the skin heals, the results from your dermabrasion treatment should become visible. However, for cosmetic concerns that are moderate to severe, you may need multiple dermabrasion treatment sessions to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Contogiannis will help you determine a treatment plan that is best for your skin care needs.
