Perioral dermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that is performed to rejuvenate the area around the mouth, reducing the appearance of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. In Dr. Hutchinson’s capable hands, the treatment can provide a smoother, more youthful appearance to the mouth and enhanced overall facial aesthetic.
Recovery and Results
After perioral dermabrasion is performed, you’ll be able to go home following your procedure. Dr. Hutchinson will provide you with detailed instructions on taking care of the treated area.
Recovery will take 7-10 days. During this time, your skin will be red, swollen, and may feel tender. Some patients may notice residual redness for 1-2 weeks and results will often be finalized at 6-8 weeks. (New collagen production will continue over the course of six months.)
