In brief: Dermabrasion

You might be referring to microdermabrasion which is a minor procedure without any down time for the skin.
Dermabrasion is the traditional sanding down of the skin for bad acne scarring or other scars and you need up to 2 weeks to recover. Microdermabrasion can be done in rosacea skin but should not be too frequent as it can increase the redness.

In brief: Rosacea and microder

If you have rosacea you can have microdermabrasion but you may get a flare of redness afterwards, which should be temporary.
Make sure you go to someone very experienced with both microdermabrasion and rosacea, such as a dermatology office.
