That’s a fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. While some might feel one scar is no big deal, many of us may experience increased distress and negative social impacts due to more visible scars.

Dermabrasion is an effective treatment for scars that concern uneven skin texture, particularly raised scars. Differing from microdermabrasion, which exfoliates skin and removes dead skin cells, dermabrasion is performed with a motorized brush that wears down scar tissue by removing several layers of skin cells in a controlled manner for quick and effective results.
