How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

Microdermabrasion is a big word for a relatively simple treatment designed to rejuvenate skin affected by sun exposure, aging and skin conditions such as acne.

The San Diego microdermabrasion and skin care team at the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic use advanced microdermabrasion technology to provide you with fast, effective results.

Microdermabrasion treatment typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes, allowing you to achieve refreshed, healthy looking skin without interfering with your busy schedule. Microdermabrasion utilizes tiny crystals to exfoliate your skin as a vacuum removes your dead skin cells.

While the microdermabrasion procedure itself is brief and permits you to resume your daily activities immediately following treatment, repeat sessions may be necessary for optimal results. The number of treatments required to achieve the desired results varies depending on individual skin tone and other factors.

With proper skin care, including the use of moisturizers and sun screen, the results of microdermabrasion can last for months. Microdermabrasion is often a suitable skin rejuvenation alternative to medical-grade facial peels for those whose skin is sensitive to chemicals.
