Will I have to get poked with a needle when I get a dermabrasion?

In brief: Probably not

This procedure is basically a gentle scraping of your skin to smoothen it.
It can be irritating...Thus your doc may use a topical anesthetic before the procedure is done...So needle is not really needed in this case....
