Temecula microdermabrasion uses mechanical friction to remove the topmost layer of skin cells, creating fresh, new, glowing skin. While it is most frequently used on the face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars and age spots, it can be used anywhere on the body. Although mechanical friction has been used for centuries to improve the look of the skin, it was not until the past few decades that safe and effective options became widely available. Today, microdermabrasion treatments can be found in the offices of many dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons as well as at spas and medi-spas across the country. However, patients benefit from coming to a professional with a great deal of expertise in the procedure, such as a cosmetic surgeon.
Dr. Tavoussi provides microdermabrasion treatments at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique that serves Temecula and the surrounding areas. A single session typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes and is often called a “lunch hour treatment” because there is no downtime. While individuals may have a bit of redness after the procedure, these side effects clear up rapidly, and most patients continue with their regular activities for the rest of the day.
Individuals who most benefit from microdermabrasion in Temecula are those with minor scars and skin imperfections. It can be used for people with mild cases of acne and is particularly helpful for people with rosacea. However, it may not be the right choice for people with very deep scars, moderate to major acne, or infections of the skin. Because the skin will be somewhat irritated following the treatment, individuals should stay out of the sun and away from tanning beds following and also immediately prior to the treatment.
