Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure in which the dermatologist removes the skin with a rotary abrasive instrument to improve its contour. This procedure should not be confused with "micro-dermabrasion," which serves as a technique for minor skin problems. Dermabrasion causes a skin wound, much like an accidental abrasion, and will require several days to a week or more to heal. Once healed, the skin generally has a smoother appearance.
