Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is an exciting procedure that is used primarily to remove the lipstick bleed lines also referred to in a circumoral rhytids from around the mouth. This is a surgical standing procedure using a fine diamond wheel. Our doctors perform this procedure either alone or often associated with face lifting. A tremendous improvement can be achieved with this surgical technique.

Proper skin care treatment before surgery will shorten the recovery necessary and improve the final results. This of course, is available through the trained staff at HK. Pre-operative skin care is very important for both dermabrasion and chemical peel procedures. This surgical procedure of dermabrasion is very different from micro dermabrasion which is a MedSpa service.

Dermabrasion is also very effective for the treatment of acne scarring. Acne scars are very bothersome for many people but there is hope as dermabrasion can significantly and improve these. This surgical procedure usually is performed either under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia. The treatment time is short usually less than one hour. The recovery is difficult for the first few days as the skin must be constantly moisturize with special creams that will be provided for you. Usually by five to seven days, a completely new skin surface is present in the results are visible.
