The dermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that helps your skin regain a more youthful appearance.
As the name indicates, this is an abrasive technique that removes the upper layers of the skin, making a younger and spotless skin to appear underneath them. The dermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that inflicts wounds on the upper layers of the skin, forcing it to regenerate.
Performed with mechanical equipment with rotary instruments, a wire brush or a roll with diamond particles, a kind of surgical scraping that removes the superficial layers of the skin is made without risking its structure.
As a result, skin irregularities get smoothed and the texture is improved.
There are many skin problems that can benefit from this procedure. It serves to improve the appearance of a skin that suffered from deep acne, reduce superficial facial wrinkles, and in some cases, to remove some precancerous tumors of the skin.
Dermabrasion can deal with specific areas of the face or embrace its totality.
This technique of removing the damaged parts of the skin is however painful and will need some time to recover.
The skin normally grows back within five days. Until then, you will need to apply a compress that will prevent the formation of crust and will relieve the pain, also your face will be bruised and swollen. Don´t worry, it is a normal part of the process.
It is important to also take some care after this intervention, in order to prevent infections.
Clean your face several times a day to prevent infections and the crusts.
Keep the areas under treatment well hydrated.
Avoid sun exposure
After the recovery time, always use sunscreen. The new skin is more susceptible to damage caused by the Sun.
