I don't think it can. I'm not sure, but I vaguely recall seeing it can't be done on those areas due to the difference in the oil glands and such. Do a search on dermabrasion on emedicine.com.

I had dermabrasion w/ Dr. Yarborough last week and happened to ask his nurse if it could only be done on the face. She said it was possible to do it on the back, but that it doesn't respond as nicely as the face. I got the impression that doing it on the back would be discouraged...

Hi Waite,

Can you tell us a little about your experience?

Are you male or female? Age?

Are you healing OK?

Did you have punch floats done as well prior to the dermabrasion?

Was any of it painful?

Please keep us posted on your results smile.gif

Good luck and I hope you have a speedy recovery and good results... Thanks!
