Dermabrasion remains one of the effective ways to treat scars and facial wrinkles. Spot dermabrasion is for a localized limited area. Bleeding and oozing from the abraded wound are cumbersome during the operation. Small pieces of tissue paper were used for the intraoperative hemostasis. The efficiency and safety of the tissue paper as a temporary dressing for hemostasis was discussed and presented. It is simple, cost-effective, and easy to use for hemostasis from spot dermabrasion.
