Thank you for your question. Dermabrasion exfoliates dead skin cells, so laser treatment can penetrate the skin better. It is very I hope this helps.

Laser following dermabrasion.

Thanks for your question.  A person typically has either dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.  Following a successful dermabrasion procedure one typically is done with any type of further surgical resurfacing procedures.  Hope that helps.

Laser after Dermabrasion

Depends on what you are trying to achieve.  This is an unusual question since most patients would have one, or the other.  Dermabrasion and Laser are designed for different problems.  You didn't say why you had Dermabrasion, but I assume maybe for scars.  Your best options is to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to address your concerns.
