Dermabrasion Uses and Goals

+1

Dermabrasion is used for treatment deep wrinkles and folds, particularly around the mouth and chin area. Dermabrasion is also used to treat acne scarring and skin surface irregularity from soft tissue trauma or previous surgical incisions. The goals of the treatment are improved texture, smooth contour, and more even pigmentation and pore size. Many factors are involved in individual patients' results, and you should seek consultation with a qualified surgeon to discuss.
