Many people suffer from scars left by acne, accidents or previous surgeries. At Dr. Margoles's Greenwich plastic surgery office, dermabrasion is a reasonable solution for correcting these skin issues. She takes the time to understand her patient's unique circumstances and then determines a proper course of action, whether that be dermabrasion or another non-surgical procedure, to start you on your path to rejuvenation and restoration.
Benefits of Dermabrasion
Patients of all ages have benefited from Dr. Margoles’ dermabrasion treatments. Individuals who have fair to light skin fully benefit from this procedure while those with darker or olive-toned complexions may have unpredictable results and may benefit from other treatments such as chemical peels or injectable fillers.
Dermabrasion can treat:
- Facial scars due to acne, injuries or previous surgery
- Pre-cancerous growths
- Fine lines and wrinkles due to aging
Dermabrasion can enhance your appearance and restore self-confidence, but it will not prevent aging. Anyone can benefit from dermabrasion who desires to refine the look of their skin and Dr. Margoles can help you achieve that appearance. If dermabrasion doesn't seem right for you, Dr. Margoles may suggest a chemical peel as an alternative.
Your Dermabrasion with Dr. Margoles
When small areas are treated using dermabrasion a local anesthetic can be used or if the patients desires, a sedative can be given. Treatment is very quick and virtually painless. After the anesthesia is administered a special surgical tool is used to smooth the outer layers of the skin. Depending on the size and severity of your scarring, this technique can be repeated two to three times a year before the full effects are visible.
What to Expect After Your Dermabrasion
After dermabrasion, your new layer of skin will be swollen, sensitive and possibly red. Antibiotics may be prescribed to help with infection, and Dr. Margoles may give you special ointment to help with the healing process. Skin protection from the sun is essential for 6-12 months or until your natural coloring has fully returned. Most patients can return to work in about two weeks and extraneous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks while the treated areas recover.
