Dermabrasion in Salt Lake City: Treating Sun & Age Damaged Skin
- Posted on: Apr 10 2013
Through the years, your skin’s top layers may have accumulated sun and natural aging damage and it may seem difficult to renew your skin’s previous glow. To achieve a healthier outer skin layer with fewer wrinkles and discoloration areas, your healthy skin cells must be allowed to proliferate, as well as to lay down new collagen. Fortunately for you, this is exactly what a dermabrasion procedure can do.
The goal of dermabrasion in Salt Lake City is achieved by utilizing a rotating diamond burr to remove layers of damaged skin and allow for new collagen production. The dermabrasion treatment is actually a skin resurfacing technique that has been performed for many years. Aside from sun and aging damage to skin, it is also effective in improving skin filled with wrinkles, lines, acne scars, traumatic scars, and skin pigmentation.
Utah Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Scott Thompson performs dermabrasion typically as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia or sedation, and usually in conjunction with other skin procedures.
Thompson is renowned and Board-Certified in Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery.
