The top layer of skin can change over time. Aging, sun exposure, acne and scarring can change the texture and smoothness of the skin. Exfoliating away dead skin cells can help rejuvenate skin. For a more pronounced texture issue, removing the top layer of skin can create a fresh, even skin texture. Dermabrasion at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills is a non-surgical treatment that restores an even skin tone and erases many blemishes for more youthful, attractive skin.
The skin is delicate and tough at the same time. It can withstand the elements, but not without lasting effects. UV rays cause discolorations and sun damage to the skin, and acne can leave small scars and indentations in the skin. Fine wrinkles can form due to lost collagen and elasticity. When the top layer of skin is marred by blemishes, they can be erased by removing the top layer of skin cells, allowing fresh, smooth skin to be revealed.
What Is Dermabrasion Treatment?
Dermabrasion treatment uses an abrasive device to remove the top layer of skin, also called skin resurfacing. This exfoliation is deep and more invasive than a gentle scrub. To perform this skin treatment, a mild local anesthetic is used to minimize any discomfort. The dermabrasion device removes the upper layer of skin to smooth scarred tissue, remove discoloration and induce healing for improved skin tone and texture.
After the dermabrasion treatment, the skin will be red and tender for several days as it heals. You will be given care instructions to keep it clean and protect it as the new skin forms. As part of the healing process, your body produces more collagen. The result is firmer, softer skin with fewer wrinkles and a smoother texture.
If you have acne scars, fine wrinkles, sun damage, age spots or other skin blemishes, dermabrasion treatment is an option to improve your skin’s appearance. To learn more about skin resurfacing treatment, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery to schedule a skin consultation.
