Often both techniques may be beneficial. Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions.
Microneedling vs Dermabrasion
Microneedling and dermabrasion are completely different treatments.
Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury.
Dermabrasion is a technique that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges (called a burr or fraise) to remove the upper layers of the skin. The brush or burr rotates rapidly, taking off and leveling (abrading or planing) the top layers of the skin.
I would recommend going in for a consultation with your provider so they can guide you in the right directions so you will achieve the best results.
