What is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a mild skin exfoliating technique that is commonly performed to enhance the facial skin. Dermabrasion involves the use of a rotating tool, which will remove the outermost layers of skin when it is applied to the face. The dermabrasion treatment is a fairly gentle exfoliation technique, so it is often a good option for patients with sensitive skin who cannot receive treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we may recommend dermabrasion to address cosmetic skin concerns that include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin texture
- And more
How Much Does Dermabrasion Cost?
The cost of dermabrasion treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery can vary. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the number of treatment sessions necessary to achieve those goals. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Dermabrasion Treatment Like?
The dermabrasion treatment is performed in-office and begins with the application of an anesthetic to the skin. Then, the dermabrasion tool will be applied to the skin to exfoliate aged and damaged skin. This process is generally well-tolerated by patients, but you may feel scratching sensations on the skin. The dermabrasion tool will be used to address the entire treatment area, which may take up to an hour for some patients. You will be able to return home immediately following your procedure.
What is the Dermabrasion Recovery Like?
After the dermabrasion treatment, it is common to experience some redness and swelling in the skin. Patients are typically encouraged to take about a week off of school or work, as this is when the side effects are most severe. However, the side effects should mostly resolve within a week or two of treatment.
What Dermabrasion Results Can I Expect?
The dermabrasion results will become increasingly visible as the skin heals following treatment. Most patients experience the most noticeable improvements in skin quality approximately three months after their treatment. At this time, the skin has healed and returned to its normal color. You can expect softer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin. It is important to maintain healthy skin care habits after dermabrasion in order to protect the skin and minimize any future skin damage.
