Dermabrasion is a technique that can help flatten scars that are raised. Prior to the procedure, your scar and surrounding skin will be numbed. A sterile meshed tool is then gently rubbed over the scar until a desired contour is reached. Most patients heal within a week. Like a recovering scraped knee, it is best to keep the treatment site covered with Aquaphor or Vaseline until the wound has completely healed.
