Photos before, during and after dermabrasion
Dermabrasion is a skin-resurfacing procedure that uses a rapidly rotating device to sand the outer layers of skin. Immediately after dermabrasion, treated skin will be red and swollen (as shown in the photo on the upper right). The skin that grows back is usually smoother and younger looking (as shown in the bottom photo). The individual pictured provided consent for the photos to be published. Similar results cannot be guaranteed because every situation is different.
