question about dermabrasion

Recommended Posts

Would dermabrasion work on very little scares? I'm not sure if they are ice pick scars or not, but they are little pores that have a dark pigment to them. Very little scars. Does anyone know if dermabrasion would be good for this?

I haven't done dermabrasion myself, but I know that they used dermabrasion in the past to trait enlarged/ scarred pores. I really don't know, but I think that no sane doctor will agree to do dermabrasion on your face in order to trait your pores. Anyway, this procedure is very invasive. You should consider other options.

I did microdermabrasion with Dr. Y 5 years ago and saw good results with my little scars. I saw some improvement with my large scars, but nothing like I really want.

portlandboy,

would it hurt to have dermabrasion done on the little scars? ive got a few deeper ones, but a lot of little ones.

It's more about depth than diameter or type of scars. A doc might be able to sort you though with a simple peel or something.

Oh I see now. Maybe I should go consult with a near by surgeon rather than going to New Orleans. I'll see what he/she says first. Thanks Oldguy.
