Dermabrasion is usually done to remove the top layer of your skin.  Usually it is done with crystals or without crystals. We prefer the method without crystals. We usually do not recommend peels due to high incidence of side effects on pigmented skin.  Our dermabrasion is best done when you are treating pigmentation acne scars or wrinkles. It is usually done with the laser treatments. Usually it is done two weeks after the laser treatment.  We ask the patient to use a soothing cream three times a day for about a week to prevent any complications following dermabrasion.
