Facial rejuvenation

Aesthetic surgery is an ideal solution for pronounced physical imperfections, but also for fine wrinkles or marks left on the face by severe acne for example, dermabrasion and laser treatments are appropriate remedies

Informations about the medical procedure

A non-invasive and highly effective procedure is dermabrasion, perhaps the oldest aesthetic intervention used to rejuvenate the skin, reduce wrinkles, scars and unsightly pigmentation. Practically, with the help of specific tools, the superficial layers of the skin are removed by abrasion, thus stimulating the production of collagen and a new layer of stem cells. Following to the procedure, the patient should expect to show some brown crusts that will begin to withdraw as with the fourth day and will disappear entirely after eight to ten days.

Dermabrasion can be linked with procedures of fat injection (lipofilling) in order to restore the three-dimensional volume of the region, but also with chemical peeling procedures.
