How long will my dermabrasion results last?
Your results will vary depending on your skin type and skin tone, the extent of your sun damage and wrinkles, and your treatment.
Because of the persistence of skin pinkness following more extensive dermabrasion treatments, it may take a few months before you can fully appreciate your new look. Most patients feel that the results are worth waiting for, and you can expect your skin blemishes to be reduced or eliminated for a relatively long time following the procedure.
It's important to remember that your skin will continue to age over time - meaning new blemishes and skin lines may form and those removed with dermaplaning/dermablading or dermabrasion could return. Ask your aesthetic plastic surgeon to give you an outline of how long you can expect results from your treatment to last.
While results are individual to each patient, dermabrasion before and after photos can help you assess what a successful dermabrasion will look like.
What do I need to consider after my dermabrasion?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes. If you notice changes over time, you can schedule additional dermabrasion treatments to maintain your results. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
