Dermabrasion & Dermaplaning at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Performed at our Atlanta, Alpharetta, and Cumming, GA office locations.
Dermabrasion and Dermaplaning are known as “surface repair” and help to refinish the skin’s top layers using a method of controlled surgical scraping. These treatments give the skin a smoother appearance.
Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin, while dermaplaning is commonly used to treat deep acne scars. Men and women of all ages can benefit from dermabrasion and dermaplaning, but the most important factor in deciding which procedure to use is your skin type.
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning are usually performed under local anesthesia. The plastic surgeon uses a special safety instrument to scrape or “skin” away the surface layer of skin. The skin is then treated with ointment, a wet or waxy dressing, dry treatment, or a combination of these.
We also offer non-surgical alternatives through our line of quality cosmetics and skin care products. Our product lines include a number of anti-aging, wrinkle-eliminating skin corrections.
