What is Dermabrasion?
Deep wrinkles, acne scarring and elevated scars can be improved with dermabrasion, which utilizes a high-speed rotary wheel to remove top layers of skin.
Consulting with Dr. Mezrow:
During the consultation, Dr. Mezrow will ask you about your particular concerns regarding your skin. This will help determine your expectations and determine whether they can be realistically achieved.
After obtaining a comprehensive medical and surgical history, Dr. Mezrow will examine your skin. The skin color and degree of wrinkles will be assessed.
