Salt Lake City Dermabrasion

Did you know that skin is the largest organ? We are surrounded by our skin, it keeps us safe and battles the elements day in and day out, everyday of our life. Taking proper care of your skin is one of the best ways to keep yourself looking young and healthy. Dr. Thompson offers a plethora of skin care treatments to keep your skin in top form. One of these procedures is dermabrasion.

Salt Lake City dermabrasion is a popular skin re-freshening treatment which uses a rotating diamond burr to sharply and precisely remove layers of damaged skin, allowing new collagen production. Since dermabrasion is removing that dead outer layer of skin, any skin imperfection on that layer will also be removed. Skin imperfections such as uneven skin pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles and sun damage may be effectively treated with dermabrasion.

What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is a skin-resurfacing procedure that uses a rapidly rotating device to sand the outer layers of skin. This process aims to improve the skin’s appearance by removing damaged skin layers and promoting the growth of new, smoother skin. Dermabrasion can help treat various skin conditions and imperfections, including:

  1. Acne Scars: Reducing the appearance of scars left by severe acne.
  2. Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, particularly around the mouth.
  3. Sun Damage: Addressing skin discoloration and damage caused by prolonged sun exposure.
  4. Uneven Skin Tone: Improving pigmentation issues and providing a more even skin tone.
  5. Scars: Minimizing the appearance of surgical scars, injury scars, and chickenpox scars.
  6. Tattoos: Reducing or removing certain types of tattoos.

During the procedure, the skin is typically numbed with a local anesthetic, and sometimes a sedative is given to help the patient relax. After the procedure, the treated area will be red and swollen, and a scab or crust will form over the treated area as it heals. The healing process can take several days to weeks, depending on the depth and extent of the dermabrasion.

It is essential to follow post-procedure care instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and achieve the best results. This may include avoiding sun exposure, keeping the treated area clean, and applying recommended ointments or creams.

Consulting with a skin care specialist is the best way to determine if dermabrasion is the right treatment option for you. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
