What to Expect from Microdermabrasion

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

microdermabrasion treatment at the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic is simple and easy. We use a handheld device to finely “sand blast” the skin with ultra-fine crystals to help with exfoliation. A miniature vacuum simultaneously suctions away the crystals along with the exfoliated skin cells. It’s as easy as that.

In fact, Dr. Nasrin Mani sometimes refers to microdermabrasion as the “lunch time peel” because the entire process only takes a few minutes and there are no negative side effects other than a short term rosy glow. You’re able to return directly to work to show off your fresh face! You’ll see results immediately following your microdermabrasion treatment.

Since microdermabrasion is not a surgery, no anesthetic, local or general, is required and patients typically report no pain while undergoing microdermabrasion. This is one of the least invasive procedures that cosmetic surgeons can offer. Microdermabrasion is proven to work on all skin types and colors; this procedure doesn’t discriminate.

For some skin conditions, multiple microdermabrasion treatments are required to achieve the skin’s maximum potential. Since microdermabrasion is not aggressive, up to ten or twelve treatments may be advised. However, a two-week waiting period is often implemented to ensure the safety of your skin. As you continue to receive microdermabrasion treatments, you’ll see continually improving results until you are happy with your skin.
