What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and non-invasive method to exfoliating the skin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. The procedure is safe and does not involve the use of any needles, medications or chemicals. In addition, Microdermabrasion works on all skin types, without altering the color or causing the skin to bruise. Research has shown that Microdermabrasion can also aide in thickening the collagen, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Microdermabrasion works by utilizing tiny crystals to gently exfoliate the skin, therefore removing the dry and uneven outer layer, revealing a healthy and brighter complexion.
What does it treat?
Microdermabrasion can effectively be used in the treatment of multiple skin concerns including:
- Light scaring
- Skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- Dull or dry skin
- Brown spots
- Age spots
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone and texture
What is a Microdermabrasion procedure like in Los Angeles?
At Beauty Innovations, we recommend avoiding waxing, sun exposure and tanning creams for at least a week prior to treatment. Exfoliating creams and masks should also be removed from the patient’s skin care regime at least 3 days before treatment. These steps help to ensure a smoother recovery time and aide in less irritation occurring post-treatment.
The procedure is quick and can range from five minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. At the start of the procedure, a hand-held device will be used to exfoliate the targeted areas. The tiny crystals within the device will begin to gently remove the dead skin cells from the outer layers of the skin. Simultaneously, a built-in vacuum will suction out the dead cells that have been exfoliated. The procedure is pain-free, requiring no local anesthetic. Most patients have described the sensation as that of a cat licking their face. At the end of the procedure a moisturizer may be applied to the skin to aide in hydration and help protect the treated areas.
Are there any side effects?
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure and does not involve the use of any needles, chemicals or medications, resulting in relatively little to no risk. However, post-treatment you may experience mild side effects including tenderness, swelling or redness around the treated area. The treated skin may also feel tight and dry. These side effects are considered normal during the skin’s healing process and should subside naturally within 24 hours. There is no downtime involved with the procedure, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Post-treatment, the treated skin may become more sensitive to the sun. For this reason, we recommend for our patients to apply moisturizer and sunscreen daily, as well as avoiding excessive sun exposure for a few days. Patients should also refrain from applying makeup and topical acne medications the following day after treatment. It is vital to ensure the skin remains hydrated post-treatment and any skincare products applied should be gentle on the skin.
Results of a brighter and clearer complexion may be noted immediately after treatment. Although some patients may only require one session, typically multiple sessions may be recommended in order to achieve optimal results. We recommend for patients to receive maintenance treatments at 30-day intervals, due to the skin regenerating every month.
