The skin is a very tough organ, but factors such as pollution, stress and the natural aging process can all cause it to need a helping hand. For many people, assistance comes from a plastic surgeon who performs a procedure called dermabrasion. Keep reading to learn more about whether it might be a good choice for your needs.
How Does Dermabrasion Work?
This procedure is usually performed in a doctor's office on an outpatient basis. A rapidly spinning brush is applied to the skin surface, removing the top layer and stimulating the skin's natural regeneration properties. The treatment causes the skin to heal with the new skin which is often smoother and more youthful looking. People frequently use this option for treating scarring and acne. Dr. Shah has helped many Las Vegas dermabrasion patients get rid of scars with this procedure.
Things to Expect
Before deciding this procedure is right for you, it's a good idea to bring up any concerns or questions with a cosmetic surgeon. The specifics of your treatment and the subsequent recovery time will vary depending on several factors including the amount of surface area covered by the dermabrasion brush. Generally, the growth of new skin begins in less than a week.
