Introduction To Dermabrasion

Dr. Kaweski’s treatment is a product of her extensive training and experience. Her specialized knowledge in Dermabrasion proves to be an advantage in addressing various skin concerns. Dermabrasion is a skin-resurfacing technique that uses a rapidly rotating device to remove the outer layer of the skin, typically on the face. Dermabrasion aims to improve the appearance of various skin flaws, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and other types of deep scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, and precancerous growths (keratose).

What Is Dermabrasion?

In a nutshell, Dermabrasion is the removal of the top layers of the skin. The procedure is intended for patients with facial scars from severe acne, injury, previous surgery, or precancerous growths. It also treats usual skin conditions caused by aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. The procedure uses a diamond wheel device to remove the upper layers of the skin, essentially damaging them to stimulate the healing process. Dermabrasion is not the same as microdermabrasion. A board-certified medical professional must perform dermabrasion with years of experience, the treatment in which Dr. Kaweski and her team of experts are highly skilled.

How Does Dermabrasion Work?

The Dermabrasion procedure may take a few minutes to an hour to perform. The length of the treatment will also depend on the size of the area to be treated. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the targeted area. An abrasive tool with a rotating diamond wheel is used to “sand down” the skin’s top surface to reveal normal, healthy skin eventually. Topical, antibiotic ointment is placed on the treated skin to prevent scars from forming. An oral pain medication will be given to the patient for the first few days for pain management.

Benefits of Dermabrasion


Dermabrasion is an outpatient treatment that rejuvenates the skin, specifically fine lines and wrinkles. Dermabrasion can delay the need for surgical interventions.


The procedure lasts a few minutes to an hour. It can be done in Dr. Kaweski’s aesthetic clinic.


During the consultation with Dr. Kaweski, the patient may receive Dermabrasion on isolated areas or their entire face. The procedure may also be done with a chemical peel or a facelift.


Dermabrasion goes beyond exfoliation of the skin. It also stimulates collagen production and triggers blood circulation. The skin will become soft and supple and appear healthy, youthful, and glowing.


Unsightly scars and unhealthy precancerous growths known as keratose will fade and be eliminated.

How long does the Dermabrasion treatment last?

The treatment may last for a few minutes to an hour. Take note that the Dermabrasion procedure may also last longer due to the size of the area being treated.

What type of skin condition should I have to get Dermabrasion?

Patients whose acne is at their active stages must wait for the issue to be resolved before undergoing Dermabrasion. Otherwise, aging skin is an indication.

How long do the results last after the Dermabrasion treatment?

The skin fully heals from the procedure around 2-3 weeks after the Dermabrasion. However, the skin will be red for several months and can be covered up by makeup. Dermabrasion results last longer than other skin treatments, and patients may only be required to do one extra treatment in their lifetime.

How are Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion different?

Dermabrasion offers more substantial benefits and damages the skin in a controlled setting. Only medical professionals like Dr. Kaweski, whose expertise and experience can assist the patient in achieving healthier, glowing skin, can perform dermatologic procedures. On the other hand, microdermabrasion treatments are conducted by aestheticians.

Will I be awake during the Dermabrasion treatment?

Yes. Anesthesia is administered to numb the treated area. However, if dermabrasion is conducted with other surgical procedures, general anesthesia is recommended.
