Dermabrasion treatments abroad

Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure which removes the upper skin and levels it out. By removing the top layers of skin, it causes bleeding and wounds the skin. It is the abrasion of the skin with the goal of smoothing out the skin and removing any damage, giving the skin a rejuvenated look. As the skin begins to heal from the damage, new skin grows in place of the damaged skin. Most commonly, dermabrasion is performed on the face, but can also be used on other areas of skin. The procedure is performed on patients who have damage or defects on the upper layers of the skin, such as acne scars or scars caused by surgery or trauma, sun damaged skin, uneven skin tone, actinic keratosis, and fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth.

A dermabrasion procedure is performed by either a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon who has specialized training in the procedure. The procedure is usually carried out under a local anesthetic and ice packs and freezing spray may also be used to harden the skin for deeper abrasions. There are various tools which can be used to perform the procedure such as a rotating wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges. The choice of device is based on the location and nature of the skin that is being treated.

The duration of the procedure varies, depending on how much skin is being treated and how deep the abrasions are. Potential side effects or risks associated with dermabrasion are redness and swelling which should normally reduce after a few weeks, sensitivity of the skin, bleeding, changes in skin colour, and infection. Healing time varies depending on the area of skin which has been treated on how deep the abrasions were.
