Dermabrasion is the art of removing superficial skin layers to allow healthier and cosmetically more attractive skin to emerge. In the case of dermabrasion, the skin resurfacing is performed mechanically to the desired depth.
Microdermabrasion has become a popular adjunct to the modern skin care offered by estheticians. There is no downtime for the patient after microdermabrasion as the skin will look refreshed and healthy immediately after a successful treatment.
Doctor strength dermabrasion carries this treatment to a deeper skin level. This advanced procedure results in a more dramatic improvement and it therefore requires a period of recovery for the patient, usually in the order of one week.
Dr. Fechner performs surgical dermabrasion under sterile conditions in the office or in conjunction with other procedures in the surgical suite. One of the common cosmetic indications for dermabrasion is rejuvenation around the mouth where deep lines and furrows can be bothersome to a patient.
Dermabrasion can also be effective in the improvement of facial scars by smoothening and flattening their appearance.
Appropriate preparation, skillful performance and diligent care after dermabrasion is important for minimal downtime and maximal benefits. During a private consultation, Dr. Fechner will discuss if dermabrasion is appropriate for the specific concerns the patient may have.
While the plastic surgery clinic is located in Worcester, Dr. Fechner has dermabrasion and microdermabrasion patients from throughout the Boston area and Massachusetts.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
