Dermabrasion in Lafayette, LA

Dermabrasion is a skin treatment that diminishes and smooths skin affected by scars to reveal and refreshed and glowing appearance.  The clinicians at Precise Spa at Plastic Surgery Associates of Lafayette perform dermabrasion on patients in Lafayette, LA, who want to reduce the appearance of scars and have a healthy appearance.

What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is used to smooth the skin by controlled surgical scraping and removal of old skin to stimulate new skin cell generation. Dermabrasion can be used to treat certain areas of the face or the entire face and is often used in conjunction with chemical peels which are also available at Precise Spa in Lafayette.

Benefits of Dermabrasion

  • Eliminates facial scarring
  • Smooth out facial wrinkles

Dermabrasion Procedure

Before your Dermabrasion treatment, your skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove oil and dirt. A special device is used to exfoliate your skin gently. The device emits microscopic crystals at a controlled pressure to remove dead skin cells. The cells and crystals are then removed with a gentle suction instrument.

Immediately following Dermabrasion treatment, your skin will feel as though it has been burned. Pain medication will be prescribed to help you deal with any discomfort, which will subside a few days after the procedure.

Preparing for Dermabrasion

You should expect to change your habits for the following couple of months after the procedure: you’ll be staying indoors more often, consistently applying sunscreen.

Dermabrasion Recovery

Healing usually takes place within the first week, and the new skin will appear pink until about eight weeks following the treatment. Makeup can be used to cover up as soon as the skin is healed, and sunscreen should be generously applied for six months following the procedure.
