Dermabrasion or Facial Sanding in San Francisco


Dermabrasion or Facial Sanding Procedure

Dermabrasion or facial sanding is particularly effective in smoothing fine or deep wrinkles of the skin on the face. Facial sanding is also relied on to remove or reduce skin irregularities and to correct uneven skin surfaces resulting from scarring or acne.

Dermabrasion is usually done on an outpatient basis under local sedation and local or general anesthesia. The procedure involves using a tool with a small, rapidly spinning end, which has a roughened surface that removes inconsistencies of the skin. After the procedure, the patient goes home with the treated area covered with medicated ointment or a protective membrane.

Dr. Kimberly Henry

Dr. Henry and her team of specialists will provide you with several options to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Facial sanding is relatively painless, and side effects are controlled easily with oral medication. The treated skin is usually “healed” within 5-7 days, at which time makeup may be applied. The redness of the skin fades gradually over a 2-3 month period.

Additional plastic surgery procedures that may enhance dermabrasion results are scar revision and dermabrasion of the upper and lower lips.
