A procedure that removes scars, tattoos or other skin defects with fine sandpaper or a high-speed brush.
A surgical procedure, which involves the controlled abrasion of the upper layers of the skin to smoothen the skin and remove wrinkles, small scars or foreign bodies (tattoos).
A procedure performed with a special instrument to smooth the skin's surface. The procedure removes the upper layers of skin and improve irregularities in the skin surface, such as acne scars or chicken pox marks.
A resurfacing technique used especially to treat deep defects of the skin such as acne scars, heavy wrinkles and the disfiguring effects of skin conditions, such as rosacea. The procedure involves the mechanical sanding of the upper layers of the skin. With dermabrasion, a new layer of skin replaces the abraded skin during healing, resulting in a smoother appearance.
involves the use of a high-speed rotary abrasive wheel to smooth out skin imperfections such as scars.
a cosmetic procedure used to smooth skin and reduce scars
Removal of the top layer of the skin with a power-driven sander or dermatome (which works like a plane) to remove pitting cause by acne and wrinkles and spots caused by aging and sun. Less likely to cause extreme changes in skin color than a chemical peel.
A surgical procedure in which a specialized tool is used to sand the skin after it has been frozen.
a technique of mechanical buffing or sanding of the skin to remove the superficial layers and improve imperfections such as wrinkles and scars
removal of scars or tattoos by anesthetizing the skin surface and then sanding or wire-brushing off some of the outer skin layer
Fine wrinkles, age spots and scars can be "sanded down" with a small, rotating wheel. Scabbing and swelling generally last a couple of weeks. Complete healing takes longer.
A surgical procedure for removal of acne scars, nevi (nevi: skin blemish), tattoos, or fine wrinkles by using special abrasive tools on the epidermis (epidermis: outer layer of the skin).
A procedure which consists of "sanding" of the skin. Used primarily to treat Acne scars.
mechanical abrading or rubbing away of skin, usually with high-speed rotary brushes or fine abrasive matter (such as diamond particles).
this cosmetic procedure involves the use of an abrasive tool or material to remove the surface layer of facial skin. Dermabrasion is effective at smoothing blemishes such as acne scars.
Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure that involves the controlled abrasion (wearing away) of the upper layers of the skin with sandpaper or other mechanical means. See the entire definition of Dermabrasion
A technique in which a special instrument exfoliates the upper layers of skin to smooth its surface.
A procedure performed with an abrasive wheel or brushes, to wear away the upper layers of skin and improve irregularities in the skin surface, such as acne scars or chicken pox marks.
A technique in which a special instrument removes the upper layers of the skin and smoothes the skin surface.
A surgical procedure in which the physician attempts to make scars less noticeable by sanding them using a small hand-held tool.
The removal of the surface layer of skin with a sanding wheel to treat scarring or to remove tattoos.
A procedure that removes fine wrinkles and/or minimizes scars on the skin. It involves the surgeon utilizing a high-speed rotating brush to remove the top layer of skin. The size and depth of the scars, as well as the degree of wrinkling, determine the appropriate level of skin that will be surgically sloughed.
A surgical procedure to remove the epidermis and superficial layer of the dermis of the skin in order to smooth irregularities and to camouflage scarring.
a procedure that uses a rapidly rotating brush to plane off the surface layer of skin, remove scars, and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
Dermabrasion is a procedure in which a high-speed rotary wheel, similar to fine-grained sandpaper, is used to abrade the skin. It may be recommended when there is extensive sun damage and heavy skin wrinkling. In addition, dermabrasion can be used to improve the texture of pockmarked skin resulting from severe acne or chicken pox. Following treatment, the skin should appear firmer and smoother, but permanent pigment changes may occur.
Dermabrasion is a mechanical vs. chemical approach to reducing fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring. A medical device is used to "sand" the skin. Dermabrasion is not used as often as chemical peels or laser resurfacing, yet some doctors have a preference for dermabrasion when dealing with uneven skin such as acne scarring or raised scars.
a procedure in which the outer layer of skin is buffed to improve its texture
A facial sanding technique used to treat deep scars and wrinkles, raised scar tissue, and some severe cases of cystic acne; top layers of skin are sanded off with a high-speed rotating brush or a diamond-coated wheel
surgical skin resurfacing used to remove the top layer of skin for deep acne scarring
a resurfacing technique that removes the superficial layers of the skin enabling new, rejuvenated skin to replace scarred, wrinkled, and irregularly pigmented skin utilizing a whirling bit to remove the superficial layers of skin.
A procedure for smoothing skin by abrading the outer layer with a rotating metal wire.
a sanding procedure used to remove wrinkles, acne or a scar. Skin irregularities are smoothed down, allowing the areas to blend in with the rest of the face.
A surgical procedure in which a patient's skin, scarred from acne, pox, or other causes, is frozen and then removed using a high-powered rotating brush
Use of sandpaper or similar mechanical methods of the frozen skin with the intent of removing sufficient epidermis so as to remove scars and similar defects.
(DUR muh BRAY zhun): Surgical technique used to improve acne scarring. A sander-like implement is used to resurface the skin.
a "scrub brush" type of operation to smooth out the scars due to pits.
a facial sanding technique where the top layers of the skin is removed with a high speed rotating brush or a diamond coated wheel. It is used to treat scars and wrinkles, raised scar tissue, and cases of cystic acne.
A procedure in which the skin is sanded to improve its texture. Microdermabrasion uses a type of sand to abrade the skin, usually done by an esthetician or a cosmetic doctor. Cosmetic physicians can perform a deeper type of dermabrasion using small burrs or wires to remove the outer layers of the skin.
a procedure used to minimize small scars, minor skin surface irregularities, surgical scars, and acne scars. As the name implies, dermabrasion involves removing the top layers of skin with an electrical machine that "abrades" the skin. As the skin heals from the procedure, the surface appears smoother and fresher.
Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure in which the physician uses a sanding device to remove the top layer of skin. Dermabrasion is typically used to treat scars and other skin imperfections.
Dermabrasion is a cosmetic medical procedure in which the surface of the skin is removed by abrasion (sanding). It is used to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. The procedure is very painful and usually requires a general anaesthetic or twilight anaesthesia, in which the patient is still partly conscious Anderson, Laurence. 2006.
