Dermabrasion - Please Advise?

I received dermbrasion 1.5 years ago and I have this outcome: A more uniform melanocyte distribution with decreased melanin production, increased fibroblast activity with collagen formation in parallel bundles that may increase the dermal-epidermal thickness by 2 - 3 mm. The skin is lighter and thicker where the procedure was performed. My main concern is the thickness. Can this be helped ? Thank you for taking the time to respond. PS. The procedure was performed on my cheeks.

Questions about skin thickness following dermabrasion


Not really sure what your question is at this point.  A photograph of your face may be helpful.  Express your concerns to your plastic surgeon or see an experienced dermatologist.  Some patients benefit from the use of a Vitamin A cream or a skin bleaching agent that contains hydroquinone and kojic acid.
