Microdermabrasion treatments are popular in San Diego, CA, and there are still many people who have questions about it. We know how important it is to be informed and knowledgeable before making a decision about any type of treatment, so we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions.

Q: What is microdermabrasion treatment?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment utilizing skin resurfacing and rejuvenation techniques to renew skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, wrinkles, and other concerns. A special applicator with an abrasive surface or a fine particle spray is used to revitalize the outer layer of skin. New tissue growth produces collagen and elastin to help plump and lift the skin for a fresh, healthy looking complexion.
Q: Do microdermabrasion treatments produce immediate results?
No. In fact, the skin may be red and a little swollen for a few days following the abrasion. But, once the mild inflammation subsides, your skin will look brighter, fresher, and smoother.
Q: Does microdermabrasion remove wrinkles?
Microdermabrasion does not remove deep-set wrinkles, but it can help to plump and tighten to improve the appearance of crepey skin and fine lines. Many patients combine microdermabrasion with other procedures, such as Botox or Juvéderm.
Q: Does microdermabrasion hurt?
The instruments used may cause minimal discomfort for some people so, to minimize discomfort, we may use a topical numbing cream before beginning the procedure. We will discuss this with you prior to treatment.
