A surgical procedure that involves scraping away the upper layers of the skin using a diamond tipped, high speed rotating dermabrasion machine. it is designed to smoothen the skin by removing it in layers. This is effective for old acne scars moles, tattoos or fine wrinkles. Dr. Almonte likes to use it particularly around the mouth where patients complain of “smoker lines.” Recovery typically takes 2-3 weeks, where the skin peels, appears pink and eventually fades back to natural color. Scarring is a risk in certain skin types.
