This is a technique that induces controlled injury to the skin which stimulates new skin growth and repair. No cuts are made, and no stitches are required

Intense focal dermabrasion treats skin areas that are unsightly, like scarring, where it reduces irregularities and differences in skin texture. A softer dermabrasion can also be used more generally in the face to rejuvenate aging skin.

Dermabrasion is carried out as an office-based procedure, and the face will be red for a few days afterwards. Steroid based creams will settle the redness, and over the following weeks, skin rejuvenates.
