Abstract
We present a safer, more efficient, and more effective technique for full-face dermabrasion utilizing a combination of regional nerve block anesthesia, refrigerant spray cryoanesthesia, and local infiltration anesthesia. This combination provides a pain-free procedure with little to no discomfort for the patient while avoiding the risks of intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
