  1. Hi All,

    Today is my 6th month post Dermabrasion with Dr.Yaborough.

    I'm quite happy with my results.

    Can I use a Glycholic acid 10%,20% or 30% peel now?

    I hope it won't hinder the post dermabrasion healing process.

    I have few enlarge pores that I'm trying to cure/reduce the size.

    I should have had dermbrasion at the begining instead of my two co2 laser resurfacing treatments. Laser caused the enlarge pores.

    Is there anything that I can do to help maximize the post dermabrasion results(

    like doing once a week peels or Retina-A ).

    Let me know .


  2. methylprednisolone 4mg dospak ( generic for Medrol)

    Acyclovir 400mg tablets ( generic for Zovirax 400mg tablets)

    Flurazepam 30mg capsules ( generic for Dalmane 30mg capsules)

    To those who had dermabrasion with Dr. Yarborough,

    I am from Canada and the pharmacy here doesn't accept drugs call-in from doctors in the USA because there is no way for the pharmacy in Canada to track US doctors.  So what I need to know is the dosage of the 3 drugs that are prescribed for the dermabrasion.  I need to know this ASAP as my appointment is next Monday.  My family doctor in Canada is willing to prescribe the drugs for me.  This morning, I called Dr. Y's office already but I am waiting for the return call and am getting anxious.

    Please let me know the dosage of:

    1. dalmane

    2. zovirax

    3. methylprednisolone

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Eddy,

    I had puch float on my nose with Dr.Yaborough.

    It did not work out good because my nose was so oily the tapes fell off before the skin had a chance to heal.

    I'm looking into Punch grafts in about five months time.

    Nose is very hard to treat.

    I don't think dermabrading the nose once will cure the

    problem. It may take three or four dermabrasions.

    Also it depends on the type of scar. Ice pick will be impossible without a punch meathod.

    His phone #: (504) 897-5899


    I would love to hear from anyone who had Dr. Y perform dermabrasion and/or punch grafts on their nose.  I love to know how things turned out.

    Anxiously awaiting to hear of your experiences.


    PS I would be interested in getting Dr. Y  Telephone number and address.

  4. Animegirle or anybody,

    Today is day nine after my dermabrasion,

    Skin is healed but redish pink in color.

    I'm using Cetaphil cleanser and lotion.

    I have about 10 white heads, must be due to Vaseline.

    How did you treat the white heads after dermabrasion? What can I do to avoid white heads from popping up? Should I wash and cleanse my face about 5 times a day?

    Please Let me know.


  5. Shady,

    I also have brown skin. I just had a full face dermabrasion

    last Monday. Hyperpigment can be treated by bleaching the skin.

    Hypopigment ( light skin color) is the problem.

    Doctors cannot treat Hypopigmentaion.

    Quite a few asians in this board had bermabrasion done.

    is this true for south-east asian skin as well ie. BROWN SKIN lol

  6. I started at noon Thursday from LA and drove till 1AM non stop except for refueling.

    Slept inside the car for about two hours and continue till I reached MN.

    I did not put any sunscreen because, I had Vaseline on my face.

    It was cloudy and raining when I left LA.

    Cassandra is the best nurse I've had evere met in my life. She is kind and caring.


    When did you stoped applying Vaseline? Sixth day after dermabrasion?

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Morris, Glad to hear that you've arrived home. How you manage to do it? Do you drive at night only? Or at day time with a lot of sunscreen. Thank you.

  7. Portlandboy23,

    Since the dermabrasion my beard has grown about 1mm.

    Normaly it takes me about one month to grow about one inch of hair/beard.

    I thought of not shaving for about four months, so I can blend the

    skin around the neck.

    Yes, he did dermabrade just where the neck begins, so people cannot

    notice the difference in tone.

    Today is day four. I came home and took a shower. Cleaned my

    face with Colgate shaving form and apply Vaseline.


    Thanks for the infor. Cassandra gave me some type of cloth to put around my

    neck. I wore the mask only when I went outside to put gas.

    I think I will never drive again. It took me 19 hours.

    Next time I will take a flight home, only 2hours. Who cares if people stare at you.

    How is your healing going? My skin is very pink and red.

    Hi Morris,


    What a trooper! Driving yourself back after a dermabrasion?!! 

    I'm so concerned about ingrown hairs and shaving and all that since I tend to be prone to ingrown hairs anyway.  If you don't mind, can I ask how uncomfortable is the beard area?  How often do you normally shave (once a day? twice? every 2 days?) I'm just trying to get an idea on how fast your hair grows.  Did he go beyond the side of your face just near where the neck begins?  I'd so appreciate if you keep me informed as to how this hair growth thing goes, not many guys have had this done so I'm very curious.

    I go for punch floats on 11/23 (morning)... If anyone is getting a dermabrasion on this day and needs a ride from his office to your hotel I'd be happy to provide that.

    Anyone gonna be around that day?

    I go for full-face dermabrasion on Dec. 20

    It's all so close now!

  8. Craig,

    Today is day two after my procedure.

    I drove back to my hotel by myself after the procedure.

    It will be a long drive to MN with Vaseline dripping all over the neck.

    I'm feeling fine. I'll be in MN by friday in time for the Vikings and Gopher games.

    Tri-Luma is not for red marks. It's for brown marks known as Melasma. You can tell if you have Melasma if the brown marks resemble a "shadow." The main ingredient in Tri-Luma is hydroquinone, which bleaches the skin. It should not be applied to the entire face, but only those areas which are dark.



  9. hi all,

    I had my fullface dermabrasion yesterday. The only painfull part was when

    Dr.Yarborugh applied the freezing agent.

    Now my face is covered with a bandage. The face is very red.

    Thankyou all for the info on the makeup tips.

    $800 is not bad at all. I really want to get this done. Sorry if i'm asking obvious questions, but my scars are quite shallow rollings...do you think those could be completely gone with dermabrasion? I dont' know much about this procedure and my derm was unwilling to talk about it with me. Is it only for those with severe scarring? Also, it goes deeper than a moderate chemical peel, correct? Thanks for any help.

  10. Hi All,

    I'm having a full face dermabrasion with Dr.Yaborough on Nov 8th.

    Let me know if any of you'll have questions for Dr.Yaborough.

    I'm taking 14 days off work.

    Do you'll know of any good makeup for a guy?

    I think the redness will be there for three to eight weeks.

    I'm driving from MN.

    Thanks K...you certianly seem to be in good spirits and taking things in stride.  Have you had any resurfacing procedure done before, how much time do you plan on taking off before you go back to work/school real world.  Gracias

  11. Hi all,

    I'm having a full face dermabrasion with Dr.Yaborough on Nov 08th.

    Do you'll know any good makeup for a guy/male?

    I'm taking 14 days off work.

    But people will still notice the redness on week three.

    I appreciate your input.



    Thanks oldguy!!!  I'm not very good with computers at all.  Thanks for your assistance!!!  biggrin.gif

  12. Wildcard,

    Thanks for the infor. Do you know the name of the Doc?

    Scars on nose are very difficult to treat.


    Thanks so much for asking Dr. Y...and good luck with the punch floats!


    My sister had squamous cell cancer the size of a quarter removed from the side of her nose.  The doctor skin grafted, using skin from the chin area to place over the nose.  It healed great.  Today there is no scarring on either chin or nose.

  13. Hi,

    I was wondering if you could take skin (about 3-4 cm in diameter)

    from another part of the body to cover a large area of scars on face.

    Not like the punch graft or punch float for treating tiny scars.

    Just like they treat burn victims.

    I was watching a TV documentary on how they fixed the face of Princess Diana's

    body guard(the only person to survive the accident). He had about

    10000 different deep scars and cuts.

    After the procedures his skin looked like baby smooth.

    I guess if you can spend big bucks then you will be able erase all

    scars 100%.

    I should call Dr.Ray from dr.90210 tv show and ask if he can erase acne scars 100%.

  14. Hi all,

    Dr.Berman in California told me that if a person has

    many icepick/box/rolling scars in oneplace (ex. cheeks, nose)

    then Punch grafts are the best treatment (not Punch floats).

    Punch Grafts will get rid of scars 100%.

    After Punch grafts they would dermabrade the skin.

    This has work wonders for acne scars on nose.

    I was wondering if anybody here had the treatment.

    Please let me know. Thanks.

  15. Animegirle or anybody,

    I'm thinking of getting Punch grafts.

    It take skin from behind of your ear and suture the skin.

    Do you see the suture line after dermabrading the skin?

    I'm planning Punch grafts for my nose and cheeks.

    Please let me know. Thanks.

  16. Animegyrl and smilingeyes,

    Thanks for your advice.

    I've already set up a consultation appoinment with

    Dr.Yaborough on SEP 20th.

    My parents are visiting me in Nov 2004.

    Do you think if I get it done in SEP/OCT 2004, My parents can notice the skin discoloration?
