Often as a result of diseases (such as smallpox or acne) remain unaesthetic scars on the face. In such cases, dermabrasion is recommended as the optimal treatment method. In this method, the epidermis and outer layers of the skin are rubbed off with mechanical techniques. This procedure also helps to reduce wrinkles, remove tattoos or skin discoloration. However, one has to keep in mind, that this is a pretty invasive method. The recovery takes about 2 weeks, during which time the treated sites do not look optimal. So it’s a good idea to schedule this procedure for a moment, when you can go on a vacation. The correct healing of the treated areas depends very much on the discipline of the patient. One should unconditionally follow all instructions of the physician, both before and after the treatment.
