Psychological Effects of Dermabrasion

Psychological Effects of Dermabrasion Abstract Fifteen men who had dermabrasion for severe acne scarring are evaluated. Their psychological status is determined and an attempt made to evaluate the postoperative change. The major psychic disturbance is in the realm of relating with people. Improvement occurred postoperatively, but this was only partial. There was an absence of adverse effects after surgery. Despite the existence of longstanding personality disorders, it appears that dermatologists can anticipate some psychological improvement after a successful dermabrasion. References 1. Comrey, A.

Abstract

Abstract Fifteen men who had dermabrasion for severe acne scarring are evaluated. Their psychological status is determined and an attempt made to evaluate the postoperative change. The major psychic disturbance is in the realm of relating with people. Improvement occurred postoperatively, but this was only partial. There was an absence of adverse effects after surgery. Despite the existence of longstanding personality disorders, it appears that dermatologists can anticipate some psychological improvement after a successful dermabrasion. References 1. Comrey, A.
