Exploring Your Options
Patients have several options to select from. The length of recovery directly corresponds with the degree of improvement, such that the longer one takes to heal, the more remarkable the result. The results of skin resurfacing are often impressive and long-lasting.
Your Skin Resurfacing Options
When the skin has an irregular or uneven texture from acne scarring or from previous injuries, dermabrasion can be performed to provide improvement. It is also a helpful adjunct to laser resurfacing when treating wrinkles, sun damage, or deeply pigmented areas of skin. The technique of dermabrasion involves using a small rotating burr to remove the outer layers of damaged/scarred skin. The resultant skin grows back smoother and tighter. Severe scars may require a second treatment 6-12 months after the initial treatment. Dermabrasion can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.

Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How many treatment sessions each patient will need varies based on several key factors, including current skin condition, long-term goals, and the type of treatment chosen. As your healing completes and the final results become apparent, Dr. Indeyeva will make a recommendation as to whether additional treatments will be necessary.
Recovering from skin resurfacing treatment depends largely on the type of treatment you receive. Patients who undergo dermabrasion, or deep chemical peel will be evaluated daily for the first week to ensure a smooth healing process.
Tenderness and sensitivity to sunlight are common side effects of skin resurfacing. We recommend patients avoid direct sunlight for the first few weeks after their procedure and wear a strong sunscreen recommended by Dr. Indeyeva. Dr. Indeyeva will provide a customized regimen to facilitate healing and enhance your results.
Skin resurfacing results should be long-lasting with proper care.
