I recently read that dermabrasion has pretty much been replaced by laser resurfacing.

Question:

I recently read that dermabrasion has pretty much been replaced by laser resurfacing. Is this true? Are there ever times when dermabrasion is a better option?

Answer:

I perform laser resurfacing more often than dermabrasion, but it has not completely replaced that procedure. Laser resurfacing is valuable for treating the entire face to improve deep wrinkles and/or acne scarring. I use dermabrasion for more isolated areas, such as scar revision or perioral wrinkles.
