Home Medi Spa Treatments Dermabrasion



While chemical peels use caustic solutions to remove the outer layers of the skin, dermabrasion employs mechanical methods. The surgeon uses a hand-held motorized instrument with a rough wire brush, or a burr with diamond particles attached, to scrape away the top layers of the skin and, therefore, to soften surface irregularities and to give the skin a smoother appearance.

This procedure is mainly used to improve the appearance of acne scars and scars in general, although it can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermabrasion is suitable for men and women of all ages. However, it has better results on younger people with fairer complexions and is usually performed under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Depending upon the extent of the problem treated, the healing process could take from one to three weeks.
