What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion, also known as dermaplaning, uses a high-speed rotating device to scrape away outer layers of the skin and create a smoother surface. This surgical procedure is most commonly used on the face, but it may be performed on other parts of the body as well. It treats the following skin issues:

  • Raised scars due to accidents, previous surgery, or acne.
  • Deep wrinkles.
  • Skin growths, like precancerous lesions.
During dermabrasion, a nurse or other healthcare professional holds the skin taut so that the doctor can apply gentle but constant pressure on the skin using the device. Depending on how much skin needs treatment, it may take a few minutes to over an hour to complete the surgery.

A waxy or moist dressing is placed on the skin at the end of the procedure. The treated area will be red and swollen for about two to three weeks. Itchiness and tingling will likely be present for some time. Although less common, enlarged pores, cold sores, rashes, and permanent skin discoloration may also occur. Normal activities may be resumed about two weeks following dermabrasion. However, swimming in chlorinated water and sports that involve the use of balls should be avoided for four to six weeks.
