Dermabrasion in Florida
The board-certified professionals at Suncoast Skin Solutions have been dedicated to providing patients with comprehensive surgical, medical, and cosmetic dermatological care. Our cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical approaches to medical and cosmetic dermatology provide our patients with natural-looking results that require minimal downtime and recovery.
What is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses gentle exfoliation techniques to allow our patients to treat their unwanted acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles without the cutting, scarring, and anesthesia associated with traditional plastic surgery procedures. Like microdermabrasion, dermabrasion uses a handheld device to rejuvenate the skin and reduce imperfections, however, dermabrasion treatments are typically slightly more aggressive. While many patients are pleased with the results of their dermabrasion treatments alone, our board-certified dermatologists typically recommend patients receive a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing treatments in addition to their dermabrasion sessions to maximize their desired results.
How Much Does Dermabrasion Cost?
The cost of your dermabrasion treatment at Suncoast Skin Solutions is going to vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. To find out a more accurate cost for your dermabrasion treatment, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our expert staff members.

What Can I Expect During my Dermabrasion Treatment?
Your dermabrasion treatments will be performed at your local Suncoast Skin Solutions office by one of our expert board-certified dermatologists. Before your dermabrasion treatment begins, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied along the entire face. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, the dermabrasion device will be placed onto the skin and will glide along the face. This device provides gentle exfoliation while simultaneously removing the dead skin cells with mild suction. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Dermabrasion Treatment?
Because dermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime or recovery period required for each session. Patients report returning to their normal daily activities, including work, immediately following their dermabrasion treatments. Our dermatologists typically recommend receiving dermabrasion treatments once every four to six weeks to maintain a glowing, bright complexion.
