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

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.
