Buy Abstract The combined use of chemical peel and dermabrasion of the face was widely accepted since the first reports of DuPont and Horton. We present a refinement of this combined method by introducing the use of a simple diathermy head cleaner (Surgikos, Inc) as a safer method of face abrasion. This disposable device, available at every surgical theater allows a better control of the abrasive tool, permits a more accurate depth of the abrasion, and reduces the incidence of unexpected complications in this combined technique. © Williams & Wilkins 1993.
