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.
How Does Perioral Dermabrasion Work?
Perioral dermabrasion uses a high speed dermabrader, which is a rotating diamond tipped tool that removes the outer layers of skin. This process stimulates new collagen production, and as the dermal tissues heal, your skin will become thicker and appear more youthful. The result is greatly reduced fine lines that lead to lipstick bleeds and rejuvenation of the entire area around the lips. Perioral dermabrasion is preferred by some patients who may be at risk of hyperpigmentation with laser resurfacing.
