About Perioral Dermabrasion

While the face is one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging, the lines and wrinkles around the lips and mouth are sometimes noticeable even sooner. Fine lines appearing around the lips, also referred to as perioral rhytides, are often brought on by years of regular sun exposure and tobacco use, such as smoking. Along with the natural aging process, collagen, the substance that supports the underlying structure of the skin, becomes depleted and worsens with age. In addition, adding to the aging appearance, the lips also begin to lose volume and definition. There are numerous nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that can enhance this area of the face and create a softer, more youthful appearance.

Dermabrasion is a popular procedure performed at our Plano, TX cosmetic surgery office. It is a mechanical form of skin resurfacing that helps improve skin irregularities, as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermabrasion can be performed in specific areas on the face or on the entire face, but when it is used specifically around the mouth and lips it is referred to as perioral rejuvenation. Plano, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Natan Yaker and his team of trained medical professionals use this mechanical friction to remove top layers of skin.

Best Candidates

Perioral dermabrasion can be performed on both men and women, as well as individuals with varying skin types. The ideal candidates for this treatment are unhappy with the appearance of their skin and lines around the mouth. After a thorough consultation at our cosmetic surgery office, this procedure may be recommended if you have:

  • Lines near the mouth or vertical lines around the lips
  • Age spots or other discoloration around the mouth region
  • Mild scarring around mouth and lips
  • Lip rhytides

Perioral rejuvenation may be performed in combination with other procedures to enhance the results. Additional procedures might include a facelift. In addition, it is common to use other nonsurgical forms of rejuvenation to complement the outcomes, such as injectable fillers.

What to Expect

Perioral rejuvenation by dermabrasion is performed at our Plano, TX cosmetic surgery facility. Patients will have numbing cream applied to the area to be treated, and often given medication to relax. Dr. Yaker uses the dermabrator to remove the outer layers of skin cells. Patients may undergo the procedure with a numbing agent, or IV sedation, depending on their level of discomfort as well as the condition of their skin and overall nature of the treatment. The duration of the procedure will depend on how much skin will be addressed in the session. Patients are able to return home immediately after the procedure. The treated area will look similar to when someone falls and skins their knees. Most patients stay at home and inside for five to seven days. On day seven, generally make-up can be worn. These side effects will go away in a day or two as the skin regenerates.

Expected Results

Most of our patients see a significant improvement in the lower face/mouth area within 7-10 days, as new skin develops. However, it could take longer for the redness to go away and the cell turnover to occur. Once the new skin has replaced the damaged skin, the full results can be seen. Perioral rejuvenation by dermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to shave years off the lines around the mouth and lips. We may also incorporate a filler or laser treatment to complement the results even further. Your skin will look rejuvenated and younger!
