Dermabrasion is a treatment used to smooth the skin, remove small scars (usually caused by acne), moles, tattoo's and fine wrinkles. It is a procedure that involves controlled abrasion of the upper layers of skin through controlled surgical scraping. During your treatment the surgeon sands away the outermost layers of skin using a rough wire brush or a burr containing diamond particles, the brush is attached to a motorised handle. The depth depends on what needs to be corrected, dermabrasion often goes deeper for acne scars than it does for wrinkles.
Dermabrasion will leave your skin feeling smoother and looking more attractive, it removes rough skin and softens sharp contours.
Dermabrasion will leave your skin red & sore and for a few days your skin will look and feel as if it has been scraped, pinkness will fade after about 2-3 weeks. Dermabrasion is usually done whilst you are awake, a local anaesthetic will be applied to the area to be worked on. Your skin will be left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Skin imperfections can mask both beauty & confidence but dermabrasion can revitalise both leaving you feeling and looking healthier.
Dermabrasion is not a suitable treatment for skin defects, birthmarks, or scars caused by burns. When demabrasion treatment is used it removes outer layers of skin allowing for fresh new skin to grow, improving the contour & leaving it much smoother to the touch as well as in appearance.
Most women who choose to wear make-up find that after having dermabrasion treatment, skin creams and make-up are easier to apply, the amount of make up needed is usually far less whereas previously more make-up would have been applied to cover and hide imperfections & conceal blemishes & tiny scars. Make-up will go on smoother and will look subtle whilst enhancing the right areas of your face.
Dermabrasion is becoming increasingly popular amongst women looking to improve their skin texture, reduce the signs of ageing and generally look healthier.
In today's society we are all prone to skin damage caused by the sun, wind, pollution, cigarettes & alcohol and many of us are choosing to reverse the damage caused by this. Dermabrasion will dramatically improve the look of your facial skin, leaving you looking and feeling younger and adding a healthy glow to your skin.
