How does microdermabrasion work?
Dr. Banthia’s treatments use a minimally-abrasive instrument to gently take off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new growth. The technique also helps to thicken the collagen in your skin, which results in a younger looking complexion. There are two types of microdermabrasion treatments available. One involves a hand-held device that streams tiny crystals across your skin. A second, newer approach uses a diamond-tip wand that gently exfoliates as it moves across your skin.
What benefits can I expect from microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion at Murrieta Facial Plastic Surgery will:
• Reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
• Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
• Minimize the pores of your complexion.
• Effectively treat light scarring, discoloration, and sun damage
• Lessen hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
Recovery and other considerations.
Many patients describe the approximately 30-minute Microdermabrasion treatments as refreshing. You may feel a mild exfoliation as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells and you’ll notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage. Dr. Banthia will apply post-procedure lotion and sunblock to the treated area. This should be continued for the next 2–3 days. You should be able to return to your normal routine immediately following the treatment. Microdermabrasion is often combined with a mild facial peel to increase the benefits of both treatments.
