Meet Theresa M. Jarmuz, M.D.
A double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jarmuz exceeds expectations for patient care & results.
If you have thick skin or deep wrinkles, dermabrasion can obtain optimal improvement by softening sharp irregularities. To help you relax during the procedure, Dr. Jarmuz may give you a sedative. She will also use local anesthetic and during the procedure will carefully remove layers of damaged skin. Depending on your skin type and the areas being treated, Atlanta dermabrasion will probably take 30 minutes to about an hour.
You will be sent home with ointment to protect and moisturize your skin as it heals. At first, your face will be red and swollen. Scabs will form and, when they peel away, the new skin will be slightly pink. You will be able to return to work after 2 weeks. After 3 to 6 weeks, your skin tone should be back to normal. Although wearing sunscreen should always be a part of your routine, it is critical after dermabrasion.If you decide that you are not ready for surgery, Dr. Jarmuz offers several medical spa services that can improve the condition of your skin. She may suggest treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels to reduce wrinkles, discoloration, and scars.
