Dermabrasion in Oklahoma City
Dermabrasion can treat many skin problems, including wrinkles, scars and sun damage. More aggressive than microdermabrasion, the procedure works through a process of surgical scraping to resurface the skin.
Here in Oklahoma City, Dr. James (Jim) Lowe performs dermabrasion for patients who want improved skin texture and appearance.
When to Undergo Dermabrasion in Oklahoma City
Dermabrasion is similar to a laser resurfacing treatment. You'll need time to recover after the procedure, but the results are significant and long-lasting.
Dr. Lowe may recommend dermabrasion to treat:
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Scars from surgery
- Acne scars
- Sun damage and signs of photoaging
- Rough skin texture
Dermabrasion resurfaces the outermost layers of your skin. As your skin heals, it will produce more collagen, allowing fresh skin to emerge and extending the results of treatment.
How does it work?
Before dermabrasion, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin. Dr. Lowe uses an abrasion tool to refinish the outermost skin layers. By adjusting the pressure and speed of the dermabrader, Dr. Lowe can control the outcome.
How long is recovery after dermabrasion?
After dermabrasion, you will want to rest and recover at home. After the initial healing, you can use makeup to hide the effects of your treatment. Depending on the extent of your treatment – whether it's a spot treatment or full facial resurfacing – it may take a few weeks for the skin to completely heal.
What are the results of dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion can provide correction of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Dermabrasion also increases your skin’s own collagen production, providing a long-term improvement in your skin texture.
Can dermabrasion be combined with other treatments?
Dermabrasion techniques can be combined with other face and skin-rejuvenating procedures. Dermabrasion can be part of a treatment series along with laser treatments and chemical peels.
