About Microdermabrasion 

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses a handheld crystal-containing device to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, the place where the majority of aesthetic damage occurs. This facial treatment takes about 30-to-40 minutes to complete, although it may take longer if you also decide to treat the neck as well. The purpose of microdermabrasion is to improve a person’s complexion by treating,

  • Dullness
  • Uneven texture or tone
  • Dark spots from acne
  • Melasma
  • Scars
  • Line and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores

If you are dealing with skin problems and you want skin that is smoother and more radiant, then microdermabrasion may be the right treatment option for you. Microdermabrasion is a less invasive form of dermabrasion and is safe for all skin types.

Getting Microdermabrasion in Glendora, CA

Before getting microdermabrasion we want to make sure that this is the right treatment for you. When you come in for your consultation, our Glendora, CA, skin doctor will ask you questions about your treatment goals and the issues you wish to address through cosmetic dermatology. We will also perform a physical exam to check for any growths or changes in the skin that could be signs of skin cancer.

While the idea of crystals being glided across the skin may leave you concerned, rest assured that the procedure is completely discomfort-free. This is a gentle exfoliation system that doesn't create pain, although it is normal for the skin to be a bit pink for a few hours after treatment. Additionally, there is no recovery period, thus allowing you to go back to your normal routine after treatment. Just remember to wear sunscreen before going outside to protect your skin!
