Creams, lotions, and ointments all promise spectacular results but can sometimes leave your skin lacking. Fortunately, cosmetic medicine has developed treatments that don’t require a lot of time or money and that actually work.
At Marina MedSpa in Los Angeles, microdermabrasion treatments restore your youthful complexion by removing old, dead skin cells and allowing your more youthful skin to shine. We specialize in non- and minimally-invasive procedures that have proven to rejuvenate skin and take years off your appearance.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment option that removes dull and damaged skin, allowing your body to heal itself with healthy, vibrant skin. Over the years, it’s normal for your outer layer of skin (epidermis) to age and lose its luster and resilience.
Dead and damaged cells accumulate, leading to dull or discolored spots, wrinkles, and other unsightly features. Microdermabrasion works by using a device to safely and painlessly remove this unhealthy layer of skin. A mild abrasive and suction exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of healthy compounds like collagen. Underlying layers are then allowed to grow and flourish, giving you back your natural glow.
The microdermabrasion treatment process is considered relatively simple and painless. Depending on the scope of your personalized treatment plan, your microdermabrasion procedure may vary, but the process usually only takes about 30 minutes or so.
A microdermabrasion device features a handpiece connected to a pump and vacuum. When activated and applied to the treated area, the pump gently directs a solution onto the skin. The machine uses vibrational motion — similar to a massage — to remove the dead and damaged skin, and the vacuum lifts the skin and removes the liquid and discarded skin cells. This procedure is carried out over the entirety of the targeted area to provide balanced, natural-looking results.
This process helps treat a variety of adverse skin conditions. Microdermabrasion can help with issues like:
When you visit Marina MedSpa for your consultation, our highly-trained aesthetic professional will discuss with you the potential benefits of microdermabrasion and help you determine if the treatment may be beneficial for you.
Immediately following your procedure, you may notice minor redness and swelling, but this usually clears within an hour or two. Some patients see light bruising due to the suction used during the procedure that can last a few days at most. The recently treated skin is usually more sensitive to sunlight and stress, so it is important to protect your skin from sun exposure as it heals by keeping it covered and using sunscreen. After the signs of your microdermabrasion treatment have resolved, your skin will appear more healthy and reinvigorated. Results can be long-lasting but vary by the severity of the damaged skin and your skincare routine.
