Dermabrasion is a physical, as opposed to chemical, treatment that reduces the appearance of scars, lines and uneven coloring in the epidermis. It is an excellent way to treat acne scars and uneven skin texture. It works by removing the upper, damaged layers of skin so that the skin below produces new, smoother layers. The depth and extent of dermabrasion depends on the patient’s skin. Dermabrasion is a very effective and delicate procedure that should be performed by a surgeon rather than a dermatologist. It is related to microdermabrasion, but it is a more aggressive procedure. Dr. Loving’s extensive surgical experience and intimate knowledge of the skin’s layers make him able to precisely employ this method so as to permanently improve the skin’s appearance. To choose between chemical, laser, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion treatments, a patient must have a consultation with Dr. Loving so that his or her skin and objectives can be evaluated.
