by : Ismail Azmi
Having scarless skin is a dream of us all. One of the common methods to attain a smooth skin is using dermabrassion. A cosmetics technique used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, pox scars, wrinkles, acne scars and other facial imperfections is known as skin resurfacing technique, otherwise known as dermabrassion is an effective method of refinishing or resurfacing the skin to provide a smoother texture of the skin.
Dermabrasion most often takes place in an outpatient facility, such as a dermatological office or a cosmetic med spa. Perhaps many people have scars they get during childhood or teenager and then want to change the look and eliminate them. Then dermabrassion can be a great way to do so, if you want to eliminate scars. There is something you need to know in order to obtain deep understanding about dermabrassion before you choose this method.
By using a small hand held tool, a metal wheeled tool which has a rough surface, the physician or the dermatologist attempts to make scars less noticeable by sanding the scars over the surface of the scar when the wheel spins rapidly, causing the scar to be worn away. Either a wire brush or a diamond fraise may be used as the abrading tip to create an open wound in order to achieve a more regular plane, or a more gradual transition between different planes, in that way improving skin contour.
The process changes the top layer by scraping off the dead skin and the irregularities to give it a smooth surface. This process also works to smooth wrinkles on the face. The skin looks like a shallow wound or red brush burn and is tender, when the procedure is over. Before the treatment, local anesthesia is injected to the area. It takes several months for the skin to re grow and heal and it depends on your skin type, the elasticity and your medical history.
Before dermabrasion, you should ask plenty of questions have an open discussion with your physician about your expectations and goals, should be honest with your medical history, so your doctor can explain the procedure thoroughly, give you specific instructions on how to prepare and may conduct an examination and even take photographs of your face, and usually treatments depens on the severity of your scar.
