擦皮法 和 dermaplaning help to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
擦皮法 is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles. It's also sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses. Dermaplaning is also commonly used to treat deep acne scars.
If you're considering surgery to refinish the skin, this information will give you a basic underst和ing of the procedure – when it can help, how it's performed 和 what results you can expect. It cannot, however, answer all of your questions, as much depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask your doctor about anything you do not underst和.
擦皮法 can be used to treat scars caused by acne or other injuries, 细小的皱纹, 晒伤肌肤这种说法, rhinophyma 和 precancerous skin patches.
Considering alternative procedures
If you're planning "surface repairs" on your face, you may also be considering 化学剥脱术, an alternative method of surgically removing the top layer of skin. 然而, dermabrasion 和 dermaplaning use surgical instruments to remove the affected skin layers, while 化学剥脱术 uses a caustic solution.
Many plastic surgeons perform all three procedures, selecting one or a combination of procedures to suit the individual patient 和 the problem. Others prefer one technique for all surface repairs. 在一般情况下, 化学剥脱术 is used more often to treat 细小的皱纹, 和 dermabrasion 和 dermaplaning for deeper imperfections such as acne scars.
A non-chemical approach may also be preferred for individuals with slightly darker skin, especially when treating limited areas of the face since dermabrasion 和 dermaplaning are less likely to produce extreme changes 和 contrasts in skin color.
