Treatment after dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is an effective technique for recontouring the face and resurfacing the skin. After this procedure, we typically recommend our patients applied bacitracin onto the treated area and to keep the area covered with a non-adhesive non-occlusive dressing such as Adaptic or Xeroform. This will keep the area covered and clean. After one to two weeks, we recommend that the patient apply moisturizer to this area and to always use a sunblock with an SPF of at least 50.
