Treating Skin Woes Aggressively and Effectively

Unlike microdermabrasion, real dermabrasion unlocks transformative powers to remove wrinkles and skin damage in a single session. At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, San Diego’s premier destination for advanced skincare solutions, we have perfected the art of real dermabrasion for over 30 years. This surgical “sanding” procedure has helped many of our patients achieve a smoother, younger-looking, more radiant complexion without surgery. We believe this is the most effective and cost-effective means of removing those stubborn wrinkles around the mouth and upper lip.

A Non-Invasive, Painless Path to Radiant Skin

Dermabrasion is a minimally invasive skincare treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin's top layers. It is a suitable technique for many skin types, but fair-skinned patients are considered the most ideal. 

Dermabrasion is a versatile and effective skincare treatment that can address various conditions and concerns. Here is a list of conditions that dermabrasion can treat:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Dermabrasion helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production and enhancing skin elasticity.
  • Acne Scars: The exfoliating action of dermabrasion can improve the texture of the skin, reducing the visibility of acne scars and pitting.
  • Uneven Skin Tone: Dermabrasion can help even out skin tone by removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthier skin.
  • Enlarged Pores: Dermabrasion can unclog pores and reduce their size, leading to a smoother and more refined skin texture.
  • Sun Damage: Sun-damaged skin, characterized by sunspots and uneven pigmentation, can benefit from dermabrasion, promoting a more youthful and radiant appearance.
  • Uneven Texture: Dermabrasion smoothens the skin's surface, addressing uneven texture and promoting a softer, more refined complexion.
  • Age Spots: The exfoliation process can reduce the appearance of age spots, promoting a more youthful and even skin tone.

For these issues and others, dermabrasion could be the key to unlocking smoother, more radiant skin. At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, our award-winning, expert team employs a controlled surgical sanding method. This technique delicately smooths the skin's surface, promoting collagen production and cellular turnover for a youthful glow.

The Microdermabrasion Procedure: Expect Precision and Comfort

Performed under local anesthesia and often combined with a sedative, dermabrasion at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa prioritizes your comfort. The procedure typically takes a short amount of time, ranging from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treated area's size and the extent of correction needed.

During the treatment, your doctor uses a specialized device to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, gently removing dead skin cells and stimulating the regeneration of new, healthy skin. This process helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, and other imperfections, leaving you with a revitalized complexion.

Recovery and Results: Unveil a Newly Radiant Complexion

One of the appealing aspects of dermabrasion is its minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their daily activities within two weeks. Sun protection becomes crucial for three to six months post-treatment to safeguard the newly treated skin.

While some pink or redness may persist for about three months, the final results gradually emerge. Your skin will fully re-pigment, seamlessly blending with the surrounding skin. Dermabrasion delivers noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance. Fine lines fade, scars become less visible, and your complexion attains a renewed vibrancy.
