Dermabrasion is the mechanical removal of skin layers. It has become increasingly popular because it is a low-risk, minimal invasive technique that allows for shorter healing times and lower costs than other procedures.
This is a review of current skin abrasion techniques, including therapeutic indications as well as advantages and possible complications. It is important to know these procedures to provide patients with treatment options based on their condition and a meticuous case-by-case selection.

Key words: Dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, hydrodemabrasion, dermasanding, salabrasion, rotary surgical dermabrasion.
