SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA offers a variety of skin care treatments, including micodermabrasion. Your skin is constantly exposed to harsh environmental elements everyday, such as UV rays, dust, smoke, and pollution. Therefore, your skin can use a little "pick-me-up" every now and then. This is why board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi, offers microderabrasion treatments at his cosmetic practice. Dr. Kelishadi and his staff will work diligently to not only provide you with quality skin treatments, but to educate you on how to care for your specific skin type. A great benefit of micodermabrasion is that it's a noninvasive, outpatient procedure that utilizes microcrystals to gently remove the outermost layer of skin. This process enables the growth of a new skin layer that will leave you with healthier, younger-looking skin.
"Dr. Kelishadi is absolutely amazing! I went in for micro needling and I'm not even kidding... it was completely painless. And not the kind of "painless" that waxing and laser hair removal ads say where it actually hurts like crazy... It was actually PAINLESS. His attention to detail was great, and I was able to take headshots 6 days later with no redness whatsoever. I've been getting tons of comments that I look visibly several years younger. I have the best skin right now that I've ever had. I couldn't recommend him enough!"- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 11, 2017
Microdermabrasion Ideal Candidates
You are an ideal candidate if you have fine facial wrinkles, sun spots, clogged pores, rough skin texture, minor scars, or uneven pigmentation. Micodermabrasion works to improve all of these skin conditions, which is why it's one of our most popular skin care treatments. However, microdermabrasion is not recommended for those with deep scars, severe acne, or an auto-immune disorder.
Microdermabrasion Procedure Technique
Prior to treatment, your skin will be cleansed and you will be comfortably seated in one of our spacious procedure rooms. During treatment, a small hand-held device, which is equipped with microcrystals, is used to gently exfoliate the skin. The device is also equipped with a mild suction system to immediately remove any skin debris during the exfoliation process. Micordermabrasion only removes the very top-layer of skin to remove old, damaged, or dead skin cells. Therefore, it does not harm the deep layers of skin and works to promote new skin production. Typically, there is no pain during treatment. However, you may experience a warm massage-like sensation, which patients have reported to be very therapeutic.
What To Expect with Microdermabrasion
Micodermabrasion treatments typically last 30 – 60 minutes. Once the procedure is complete, you are able to return to their daily activities. However, you should refrain from direct sun exposure as your skin will be more sensitive. Redness is the most common side effect of treatment, but this should subside within a few days. The results will leave you with smoother, healthier, and younger looking skin. Typically, we recommend multiple treatments for optimal results, which are usually spaced 3 weeks apart.
Plan Your Procedure
If you have minor skin imperfections such as sun spots, rough skin texture, or fine lines and wrinkles, mircodermabrasion may bring significant improvement. The technology within this treatment works to gently exfoliate the outer most layer of skin to remove damaged cells for new skin production. The results will leave you with smooth baby soft skin.
