Abstract BACKGROUND: Aluminum oxide crystal microdermabrasion, a newly developed technique, has the advantages of less bleeding, fewer complications, better compliance, and no need for local anesthesia or high surgical skill in comparison with traditional dermabrasion. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the effectiveness of this new technique in the treatment of facial scarring. METHODS: A total of 41 patients were treated by this technique during the past 2 years (July 1992 to June 1994). RESULTS: All patients treated had good to excellent clinical improvement with 9.10 mean treatment sessions. CONCLUSION: From our experience and results, we think aluminum oxide crystal microdermabrasion is a safe surgical procedure and will be a good supplement to traditional dermabrasion especially in this era of HIV infection.
