What is Dermabrasion?


Dermabrasion, also known as skin resurfacing and medical microdermabrasion, is a treatment that exfoliates the superficial layers of the skin with a rotating hand-held sanding device, creating an improved appearance of the new skin underneath.

The removal of the skin is a form of controlled injury. The procedure makes way for a new, smoother, younger looking layer of skin to replace the skin that's been exfoliated.

During the procedure, a professional will numb your skin with anaesthesia before removing the outermost layers of your skin.

Dermabrasion is mostly used to treat types of scarring and aged skin.

Dermabrasion is not suitable if your skin tone is naturally very dark or if you have skin conditions like inflammatory acne, radiation burns, or burn scars.
