Dermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment recommended by our board-certified plastic surgeons at The Face & Body Center to patients looking for an effective, nonsurgical skin rejuvenating treatment. It is best used for issues such as rough skin texture, small acne scars, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. The procedure works by using a tool consisting of either a wire or diamond brush that creates abrasions on the surface of the skin to exfoliate old particles, helping the skin create a new surface through the healing process. If you're looking for fresher, brighter skin, then contact our office in Flowood, MS to learn more about dermabrasion.
Dermabrasion is considered a safe and effective treatment for anyone who has:
- A desire to improve his or her appearance, skin tone, and texture.
- Acne scars, small cysts, abnormal patches of skin, and superficial skin growths
- Skin color irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation
Dermabrasion may not be effective for those who have severe acne or who have used certain acne drugs, such as isotretinoin, in the past 6 –12 months. Patients who have a history of developing keloids or other abnormal scarring should avoid dermabrasion.
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"Septoplasty/rhinoplasty: I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results. - January 2019 I was in a pretty bad car accident. Airbags didn’t deploy, so nose met steering wheel! I had two fractures in the nasal bone and my left side cartilage was pushed in, forming a “dent” on the outside of my nose. Fast forward a few months, I met with dr Adrian Smith to discuss putting my nose “back to normal”. He addressed all of my concerns and his demeanor just put me at ease about the whole situation. I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results."- R. / RealSelf / May 03, 2019
"Dr Manisundaram and his staff is the best"- H.N. / Google / May 02, 2019
"I went in today for my surgical consult and I was quite surprised how wonderful the facility was. It was professional but also homely. From the very beginning, the front desk staff was very friendly. Everyone I met was kind and in good spirits. They all had a great attitude. They laughed a lot which means they have a great sense of humor. I’m very nervous about my procedure but as soon as I met Dr. Smith and his staff, I was completely at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. He gave me plenty of time to ask them, too. He didn’t push me out the door. I was well-informed about the procedure, he listened to exactly what I wanted, and he was confident in his abilities to give me what I desire. Upon request, I looked through a picture portfolio of his work and I was very impressed. The young lady came in and photographed me (before pictures, I suppose) and I actually laughed most of the time. Taking my clothes off in front of strangers makes me very nervous, especially with my condition. But I laughed, she laughed with me, but still it was a very comfortable and professional environment. I even had more questions while in the billing department, or the office that takes the payment for your procedures, and they phoned the nurse’s desk and sent me back to ask more questions. Not once did I feel like I was a burden or “just another patient.” I’m very much comfortable moving forward with this operation with Dr. Smith!"- Z.1. / Google / Apr 27, 2019
"Dr. Smith is the most personable doctor I think I ever met. He should teach a class on bedside manner. He did an excellent job removing a cyst from my head. I think I'm in love!!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 19, 2019
what to expect
Dermabrasion will produce some discomfort since it relies on wounding the top layer of the skin to produce supple results. Our medical professional will clean the area first and then apply a numbing cream, or local anesthetic may be used depending on the depth of the treatment and how large the area is. A cooling or cryogenic agent may be applied beforehand as well. The skin may bleed during the treatment and gauze will be applied as needed.
Skin regrowth usually takes 5 – 8 days. Normal skin color should return in 2 – 3 weeks for milder treatments and 6 –12 weeks for deeper treatments. Once your skin has healed, you should see a clearer and brighter overall complexion with fewer blemishes and texture/pigmentation issues. Though your skin will age normally, results can last for years.
