Acne breakouts are almost a rite of passage among many teenagers. And long after this common skin condition has resolved itself, it can leave unpleasant reminders in the form of facial scars that may lead to feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment. Fortunately, there is a non-surgical treatment choice available for light acne scars called microdermabrasion.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular types of aesthetic procedures performed in San Diego. Acne can cause alterations in cutaneous texture that are very unpleasant to the patient. This form of treatment is able to minimize this type of skin damage, leading to smoother skin and minimized acne scars.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
This treatment method involves the use of a small device that releases tiny crystals that gently exfoliate the outer surface of your skin composed mainly of dead skin cells. When we remove this layer of skin, the tissue below appears brighter and has a smoother texture less affected by acne scars.
The technique has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the purpose of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and superficial scars. The treatment works by invoking the healing process in the skin, resulting in skin proliferation and remodeling. Microneedling has become very popular as a minimally invasive cosmetic technique able to achieve reliably good outcomes with no downtime necessary.
Should I Consider Undergoing This Treatment?
There really are no skin type limitations when it comes to microdermabrasion. The treatment is suitable for those in San Diego who would like to have a healthy skin glow and brighten their complexion. Other good candidates are those with fine lines, light sun damage, and superficial acne scars.
How are Microdermabrasion Procedures Performed?
Your procedure will be performed at our office in San Diego under the care of a licensed skin care professional. The crystal form of treatment involves the use of a handpiece that sprays microscopic crystals onto your skin’s surface, leading to a gentle polishing process for the removal of dead skin cells. The dead skin cells and crystals are then suctioned away using the same handpiece.
