What is the best treatment for mild rhinophyma?

My dermatologist recommended dermabrasion for mild rhinophyma but stated, due to the difficulty of resurfacing, the tip of my nose could not be treated. Is this a standard problem? Is there a better alternative which would allow more satisfactory results?
