Dermabrasion is a surgical technique to improve the skin by mechanically abrading the surface. This is usually done to improve fine lines and wrinkles of the face or upper lip or to improve pock marks of the face following severe acne. This procedure is mainly done under general anaesthesia and requires time to heal following the operation. When done for post acne scarring or other traumatic events the procedure may be covered by Provincial or other health care insurance.
