Microdermabrasion: Resurfacing your skin

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that utilizes a stream of hypo-allergenic micro-crystals to remove the damaged and dead buildup of skin cells on your face, revealing the fresh and healthy skin underneath and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The result: fresher, firmer, and younger-looking skin. Our Burbank microdermabrasion has been known to:

  • Improve age spots and remove blackheads
  • Improve skin tone
  • Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
  • Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
  • Diminish the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce enlarged pores
  • Treat active acne 
  • Reduce the appearance of scars left by acne and chickenpox

What are benefits of microdermabrasion?

Unlike other treatments that can be more intensive, microdermabrasion is a quick, comfortable, and effective treatment with no downtime, nor does it place limitations on your life after treatment. Patients often turn to microdermabrasion because of its low cost, comfort, and results.

Am I a candidate for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion in Burbank is a perfect solution for men and women who want to improve the look, texture, and feel of their and skin, and:

  • Don’t have the time to recover from invasive laser therapies or chemical peels

  • Have acne that hasn’t responded well to other treatments

What to expect with microdermabrasion

The microdermabrasion procedure is similar to a gentle skin polish, in which micro-crystals are gently applied to your skin using a vacuum-powered handpiece. Most patients liken the procedure to having a warming facial massage, enjoying the sensation as we slough away old and damaged layers of skin. 

After a microdermabrasion treatment, the newly revealed layer of skin is usually more sensitive, so we recommend using high-SPF sunscreen and a good hydrating moisturizer to keep your skin soft, moist, and healthy.

Our specialists are certified experts who deliver treatment with the utmost care and comfort.

Microdermabrasion FAQ’s

Can I go to work after microdermabrasion?

Yes! You may experience some slight redness for a few hours after treatment, but it rapidly subsides and won’t impact your ability to work.

How long does microdermabrasion take?

A single treatment of microdermabrasion is usually done in 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your existing skin condition.

How often can I get microdermabrasion?

We usually recommend waiting 10 to 14 days between treatments, but lighter treatments of microdermabrasion can be repeated weekly.

Can I apply makeup immediately after finishing a microdermabrasion treatment?

We recommend waiting until the next day before reapplying makeup. If you have no choice and you need it for work or social reasons, use mineral-based makeup that won’t cause any reaction or harm to your fresh skin.
