Dermabrasion is the removal of the leading layers of the skin. Dermabrasion is usually done by a physician, either a plastic specialist or dermatologic cosmetic surgeon. A numbing medicine will be used to the skin that will be dealt with. You may be offered medications called sedatives to make you sleepy and less anxious if you are having an intricate treatment. Dermabrasion uses a special device to carefully and carefully "sand down" the top surface area of the skin to normal, healthy skin. Petroleum jelly or antibiotic ointment is put on the dealt with skin to stop scabs and scars from forming. Speak with your provider about therapy choices for your skin issue.
