Irregularities of the surface of facial skin are commonly improved by a surgical procedure known as dermabrasion. Dermabrasion can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but this treatment will not remove all scars and flaws or prevent aging. Acne or scar pitting, irregular scars and selected facial blemishes can often be effectively improved with careful dermabrasion. A small surgical rotating wire brush or diamond wheel is used to remove the sharp edges of scars or pits in order to blend them more uniformly with surrounding skin.
Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles, such as those around the mouth. Dermabrasion may be combined with facelift procedures to smooth and render inconspicuous the fine, small, shallow wrinkles that form around the mouth and temples in Cyprus Aesthetic Center. It is additionally helpful as a final "touch-up" following scar camouflage operations because it blends the new camouflaged scar more uniformly into the surrounding facial skin.
Exposure to direct sunlight without the use of a total sun-blocking agent within 10 to 12 weeks following dermabrasion may result in irreversible unfavorable discoloration. You have to use effective sun-blocking agents (like SPF 30). For all people living in Cyprus I advice you to use daily face moisturizer which contains SPF 15 at least.
