Abstract

A recently developed technique, microdermabrasion, or particle skin resurfacing, uses aluminum oxide crystals to partially ablate the skin. In the cases reported in this article, 4 women underwent microdermabrasion for sun-induced facial lentigines and photoaging. Treatments were successful, side effects were minimal, and patient compliance was excellent. Microdermabrasion may be useful in treating sun-induced facial lentigines.
