Dermabrasion Post-Treatment Care
Patients are strongly advised to follow the wound care instructions given by Dr. Sofonio to prevent the development of skin infections and to achieve optimum results. The wound must be cleansed, and ointment applied several times a day to promote healing and prevent the growth of bacteria.
Patients must avoid sun exposure as new skin is easily damaged by the sun’s rays. The size and type of the treated area determine the speed of recovery but generally, skin regrowth can occur within one week. This gives the skin a pinkish or reddish color, which gradually will disappear within six to 12 weeks.
