WHAT IS microdermabrasion?
The skin’s primary function is to shield the internal organs from the effects of harsh environmental elements. While serving this crucial purpose, the skin is bombarded with potentially damaging toxins that can impair its health and appearance. The condition of our skin is also detrimentally impacted by the natural, progressive depletion of collagen and elastin—the proteins responsible for keeping our skin looking smooth, firm, and supple. When these protein levels fall below a healthy range, our skin begins to appear wrinkled, tired, and aged.
Fortunately, there is a solution to stave off the visible signs of facial aging: non-invasive microdermabrasion treatments. By removing the keratinized (dead) outermost layers of skin cells, microdermabrasion effectively rejuvenates your complexion and helps to restore a youthfully luminous glow. microdermabrasion is a budget-friendly skin-enhancement option for patients in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, and because it does not require anesthesia or any post-treatment downtime, microdermabrasion treatments can easily fit into even the busiest of schedules.
At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, triple board-certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon Dr. D. David Saadat has equipped each of his three practice facilities (Beverly Hills, Valencia, and Santa Clarita, California) with a state-of-the-art microdermabrasion system to accommodate patients seeking a non-surgical way to repair the visible signs of skin damage that have accumulated over time.
microdermabrasion is an excellent option to refresh your facial appearance and/or to help you look your very best for a special occasion. This non-surgical skin revitalization service offers a number of distinctive benefits:
- Facilitates the penetration of at-home skincare products into the deepest layers of the skin to amplify the skin-rejuvenating effects of the active ingredients
- Initiates collagen production to promote skin cell regeneration and expedite the rate of cell turnover
- Lifts and tightens the skin, contributing to significant improvements in skin tone and elasticity
- Minimizes the appearance of acne scars and/or large pores
- Improves the condition of acne-prone, peeling, or sun-damaged skin
- Softens and smoothes scaly, rough patches of skin
- Is a painless treatment that does not require any downtime and can be completed in under 30 minutes, allowing for convenient, flexible scheduling options
Post-treatment serums and sunblock will be applied shortly after your microdermabrasion service to promote the growth of new skin cells and facilitate the healing process. Because your skin will be extra-sensitive after your treatment, we recommend wearing a facial sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and avoiding all forms of sun exposure (artificial and natural) for 2-3 weeks after your session. Many of our patients achieve optimal skin-rejuvenating results with a series of 5-8 microdermabrasion treatments scheduled at one-week intervals, followed by periodic maintenance treatments every 8-12 weeks.
