If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough and patchy? If your skin feels rough, this could indicate that the outer layer is covered with dead and damaged skin cells. This can lead to your complexion appearing dull and uneven. At J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. in Beverly Hills, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen offers cosmetic services, like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Quick and effective, microdermabrasion treatments remove the surface layer of damaged and dead skin so your complexion is brighter and healthier. This procedure can be used alone or with another procedure, like a dermal filler or chemical peel, for more dramatic improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Katzen will come up with a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs and complexion goals.

"I had arms that flapped after I lost a significant amount of weight. I went to Dr. Katzen for an arm lift and you would never be able to tell I had anything done. Dr. Katzen placed the incisions carefully where you wouldn't see them unless I raised my arms. My scars are healing very well. I can't wait for my incisions to fade like many of his post ops that I met."- H.C. / Google / Oct 18, 2019
"The last 2 years has been life changing for me. I had the sleeve and lost over 130 pounds. I started to exercise and eat better. One of the best things about this transformation is meeting Dr. Katzen and having a thigh lift and body lift by him."- J.A. / Google / Jun 15, 2019
Microdermabrasion sessions can minimize the appearance of surface imperfections, like dull skin tone, fine lines, uneven texture, clogged pores, scars, and sun damage. This treatment is safe and effective for women and men of all skin tones and types who want healthier, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion sessions are usually performed throughout the face, but they also can be great for the skin on your hands, neck, and chest. This procedure should not be done on skin that has an open wound or if you have an active skin condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion treatments are completed in our office after a thorough consultation to determine which services will give you your best results. For the treatment, you will lie back in a comfortable chair as your skin is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will run along your skin as it polishes and vacuums the debris. While the treatment may feel unusual, it not considered painful so you won't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The technique will be employed evenly over the needed areas with more caution on the delicate skin around the eyes. As soon as the treatment is over, your skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residual debris before a moisturizer, selected for your skin type with UV protection, is applied.
What to Expect
After your session, you can get back to your normal routine. You must be sure to wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. Following your treatment, your face should feel smoother and your tone will look brighter. To help your outcomes last as long as possible, Dr. Katzen recommends scheduling these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Some of our Beverly Hills, CA patients notice that the skin care products they use at home (especially moisturizers) absorb more easily into their skin after they've begun treatment. This leads to all-around healthier skin.
