Dermabrasion is a method of skin resurfacing that is generally predictable and well-established. This technique involves the precise and selective removal of the outer (thus aged) surface of the skin. The skin tissue that is left behind includes a smoother dermis that is repopulated by new skin epithelial cells. The result is a smoother and more vibrant appearance to the skin. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia when combined with a procedure that requires the patient to be fully asleep. The recovery for this procedure can be 5 days of healing during which the treated regions need to be kept protected with ointments. Following healing the wounds the areas treated can remain red for a limited period of time. Makeup can be used to camouflage these areas. The area that I believe is the best treated by dermabrasion the perioral region. This includes the structures surrounding the mouth such as the lips, chin, and central cheeks.
