Dermabrasion in Cleveland, Ohio
Dermabrasion in Cleveland, Ohio is a cosmetic surgery and is commonly known as skin resurfacing by mechanical means. Dermabrasion is performed at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery with the use of abrasive tools. This procedure gives an improved and smoother appearance by removing the outer layers of the skin. This procedure is done under local anesthesia or IV sedation (twilight sleep) or general anesthesia. Dermabrasion at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery is often used for treating acne scars and camouflaging other skin irregularities or scars.
Your skin has two layers; an outer layer- or epidermis and an inner layer- or dermis. There are two dermabrasion techniques available; superficial and deep technique. In superficial dermabrasion, portions of epidermis are removed while in deep dermabrasion all of epidermis and a portion of dermis are removed. For treatment of scars, deep techniques are preferred as they are very effective. Deep techniques need a greater healing time and also carry a higher risk of complications.
Dermabrasion greatly improves the appearance of the skin and has excellent results in the treatment of acne scarring. After the procedure, the improvements continue for a longer period of time and may be for months as the collagen underneath the skin remodels. The treatments depend on the severity of scarring, but most patients just require a few treatments to get the optimal results. Patients with deep scarring such as "ice pick" scars require more treatments to get significant improvement.
