Will I be able to wear makeup after my dermabrasion?
Your healing needs to be far enough along before you can resume wearing any makeup—usually several weeks. Dr. Adams or Dr. Rousso will give you medical clearance when appropriate.
How much downtime is required?
You should be able to resume regular activities in about two weeks. You will need to avoid sun exposure for several months.
When will the swelling go away?
Swelling may increase for a few days, peaking on the third day before it begins to subside.
Will I be able to shower after my dermabrasion treatment?
Yes, we encourage you to shower only with water numerous times per day and pat dry afterward. This will help your body slough off the old skin, promoting fresh new skin.
Is there a minimum or maximum age for dermabrasion?
Condition of the skin is a greater determining factor than age when considering dermabrasion treatment, however, it may be performed on patients starting in the mid-teens. There is no maximum age.
