What is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a skin treatment that removes the outer layers of skin to reveal younger, healthier skin cells. The treatment works by using a special wand that has a diamond tip. As the tip is moved across your skin, it removes dead skin cells and a fine layer of skin. After the treatment, new skin cells are revealed, and fine lines, wrinkles and other imperfections are softened. You look refreshed, and your complexion glows.
Benefits of Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion helps with many of the most common cosmetic problems that affect your face, such as:
- Dull complexion
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dermabrasion?
The ideal candidate for dermabrasion has relatively minor cosmetic flaws that do not require surgery. Dr. Castellon may recommend dermabrasion after you fully heal from a facelift to refine the results and prolong the results of your surgery.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Dermabrasion?
The day of your dermabrasion you should not wear any makeup or moisturizers on your face. We will clean the skin before the procedure, but wearing these products can extend your appointment.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a relaxing treatment. You should wear clothing that fits loosely so that you are comfortable during the treatment. You can drive yourself home, but you will need to avoid sunlight for the first few days after the treatment.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion takes less than one hour. Our medical aesthetician applies the diamond-tipped wand to small sections of your face. As the wand is applied, a freezing solution is sprayed on the skin to numb the skin and keep your skin cool.
What Should I Expect After My Dermabrasion?
Your skin will have a nice glow and may be slightly red. You will see a noticeable improvement in your appearance.
When Will I See Full Results of My Dermabrasion?
Full results of dermabrasion takes less than one week. You should always wear sunscreen when you are outdoors to protect your skin from sun damage.
How Long Will the Results of Dermabrasion Last?
The results of your dermabrasion treatment will last a long time with proper skin care. You may want to repeat the treatment every three months to remove any dead skin cells and impurities.
