Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion refers to a technique which uses a burr or fraise i.e. a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove the upper layers of the skin. In this process, the brush or burr rotates swiftly, removing and leveling the top layers of the skin. This procedure injures the skin and causes bleeding. However, as the wound heals, new skin tends to grow to replace the damaged skin that has been removed.

The prominent factors that impact the depth of the resurfacing include the coarseness of the burr or brush, the speed of rotation, the amount of pressure applied and the duration, and the condition and specific features of your skin.

Why it is done

Dermabrasion is mainly used to treat the damaged upper layers of the skin, such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Scars resulting from surgery or trauma
  • Treatment of Rhinophyma. small cysts, epidermal nevi, basal cell skin cancers, or Bowen's disease
  • Removal of tattoos
  • Changes in skin colour such as solar lentigines or melasma
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth

Dermabrasion is almost always done in your doctor's office or on an outpatient basis.
