Why is dermabrasion done?

Dermabrasion is a skin resurfacing surgical procedure for the treatment of facial scars, done by scraping the upper layers of skin by using a surgical tool.

How is dermabrasion done?

  • The surgeon scrapes away the outermost layer of skin with a rough wire brush, or a burr containing diamond particles, attached to a motorized handle.
  • The scraping continues until the surgeon reaches the safest level that makes the scar or wrinkle less visible.
  • The surgeon may then treat the skin in a number of ways, including ointment, a wet or waxy dressing, dry treatment, or a combination of these.
