Dermaplaning in Westminster, California
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning are most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles such as those around the mouth. They are also sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses. Dermaplaning is commonly used to treat deep acne scars.
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. They can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar removal or revision, or chemical peel.
If you’re considering surgery to refinish the skin, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It cannot, however, answer all of your questions, as much depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask your surgeon about anything you do not understand.
