Dermabrasion is a procedure used for perioral rejuvenation and to remove irregularities in the skin surface. By employing a diamond wheel, the surgeon is able to produce a fine and easily controllable depth of abrasive surgery. Old acne scars and chicken pox scars can be improved as well as certain superficial skin discoloration. It must be emphasised that severe ance scarring and deep wrinkles need several procedures over a period of time.

Furthermore dermabrasion is very often used in conjunction with other facial surgery. Mainly to treat deep lines in the upper and lower lip regions.
