Dermabrasion And Volume Replacement Therapy Can Help Remove Wrinkles In Your Skin

Jul 3, 2008
Microbermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure in which the stratum corneum (dead outer surface of the skin) is removed in order to help clear up the complexion of sun damage, scars, and dark spots. Volume Replacement Therapy is a way to fill in your wrinkles, frown lines, crow's feet, to give you fuller cheeks and lips, and more.


Performed by the technician. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat irregularities in the texture of the skin, fine wrinkles. Microdermabrasion involves "sanding" the skin with a special high-powered instrument passes over the surface of the skin and then removes the dead skin superficial skin irregularities. Changes are cumulative and most microdermabrasion procedures are repeated at one to two week intervals. Six to eight week sessions are usually suggested for optimal results. There is a minimal redness of the skin after each treatment which usually subsides within about 30-60 minutes so there is little down time associated with this procedure.

Dermabrasion is a very successful method of planing down irregularities of the skin resulting from acne, scarring, etc. Unlike a facial peel, which dissolves the top layers of the skin over a period of several days, the effects of dermabrasion are immediate. It is utilized usually for sections of the face and for full face treatment. The laser may be a better option for treatment of the full face.

While a chemical peel is best for wrinkles, dermabrasion is excellent for smoothing out scars and acne-related pockmarks. The procedure is usually performed under light local anesthic or IV sedative; the risks and recovery are similar to a peel. Most patients can expect at least a 50% improvement with this procedure and it can be repeated again in six months in difficult cases.

Wrinkles form when this natural collagen thins. This loss is mostly a factor of aging, but exposure, pollution, health, heredity, and lifestyle also play roles. Without enough collagen, wrinkles and lines start to form wherever the skin moves. Volume Replacement Therapy (using implants), allow the smoothing of lines and wrinkles and adding definition to the lip borders from the inside out. And results are immediate.

Like your own collagen, you body eventually absorbs these so ongoing treatments are necessary to maintain results. If you discontinue treatments, your face gradually returns to its natural contours.

While healing time varies, many people return to work the same day. People absorb fillers at varying rates, but treatments generally last 6 months.

You and your doctor will customize a treatment program to meet your individual needs. No matter which options you choose, be sure you receive enough fillers to achieve the look you want.
