Microdermabrasion

Sometimes called a Parisian or lunchtime peel, microdermabrasion is an ablative skin rejuvenating technique that is gentler than chemical, surgical or laser procedures. Kaufman Plastic Surgery offers microdermabrasion treatments for men and women like you hoping to improve skin texture, scarring and signs of aging without undergoing surgery.

What to Expect

Using inert crystals, microdermabrasion abrades old skin cells, unblocks clogged pores, encourages the production of new collagen and provides a more uniform pigmentation. Widely accepted in Europe for years, microdermabrasion arrived in the States in the late 1990s.

In addition to the face, microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat skin on the feet, elbows and hands. The procedure can be effective on all skin colors and types for improving:

  • Small wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Dark spots

Your Treatment Appointment

Before your microdermabrasion treatment, you will have a brief consultation with our experienced aesthetician, during which you can discuss your primary skin concerns and the areas to be treated. Our appointment times are flexible to work with your existing schedule. Microdermabrasion is considered a “lunchtime” procedure and usually takes less than one hour to complete.

Your consultation is also the ideal time to discuss any additional skin concerns you may have. While microdermabrasion can be an excellent method of improving blemishes and signs of aging, we may recommend one of our laser treatments or chemical peels for a more comprehensive treatment.

Recovery & Results

One reason microdermabrasion remains a favorite procedure for many of our Sacramento patients is that it requires no downtime. Following your treatment, you should be able to immediately return to your normal schedule. There is a possibility you may experience mild pinkness but this should fade within 24 hours.

After removing the worn and damaged epidermis, microdermabrasion allows your skin to breathe properly, encouraging skin health and a youthful glow. Many patients see improvements in their skin immediately after their first session, with results continuing to develop for the next several weeks as collagen production stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Although patients may see results after only one procedure, the best results are usually seen following a series of treatments spaced a couple of weeks apart.
