DOES YOUR SKIN LOOK UNEVEN, OR ROUGH FROM PREVIOUS SCARRING?
Acne/facial scarring is a difficult condition to remedy. We understand it's a highly emotional condition. Patients suffer quietly believing there is no hope or treatment. Fortunately, there are successful treatment options available to you.
Traditional dermabrasion is the gold standard for delivering smooth skin texture. It is ideal for correcting acne scarring, “ice pick scars”, and moderate to severe skin imperfections.
Many people attempt to battle unsightly scarring with OTC creams and “micro” dermabrasion with minimal signs of improvement. Dr. Diamantis understands the psychological trauma poor texture may cause; and he is happy to help.
Fortunately, there’s a variety of procedures proven to smooth the skin. Here you will find photographs of several patients who sought Dr. “D’s” help.
Dermabrasion | Skin Texture
Scarring of the facial skin is a very emotionally difficult problem. Acne or Pox scarring is a permanent disfigurement that affects men and women. There is no easy fix to this problem. Dr. Diamantis will evaluate you and develop a multi prong approach to help erase the deep scars. Dermabrasion is the gold standard for softening the scars and blending the skin. Dermabrasion is an office procedure performed with mild sedation. A special diamond fraise is used to even out the skin and diminish the scars. This procedure requires 3-4 days of recovery.
Dermabrasion is the ultimate technique to smooth and remove moderate to severe facial scars. Dr. Diamantis routinely utilizes dermabrasion to improve active scarring, hypertrophic scars and keloids. The results are permanent and very impressive. Do not confuse Dermabrasion with microdermabrasion.

"Dr. Diamantis softened the look of my acne scarring." –Miguel
Miguel is concerned with the acne scarring more notably around the cheek and temple area. As a teenager he had severe acne that permanently scarred his cheeks and temples. Dr. Diamantis evaluated Miguel and developed a protocol that included dermabrasion and topical skin lotions.
Miguel underwent one treatment of dermabrasion in the office. He's very pleased with the results. Dr. Diamantis suggested a second session to soften any residual scarring. Incidentally, don't confuse microdermabrasion with this treatment. They are mutually exclusive! Simply put, dermabrasion performed at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery is more effective.
