About Microdermabrasion

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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

Procedure Technique

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.

Microdermabrasion FAQ

Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Based on your complexion and aesthetic goals, a skin care professional at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills will help you understand if microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion is the right procedure. In a nutshell, microdermabrasion clears away the top layer of dead and damaged skin cells — so your complexion is smooth and healthier. You can get these same results from a light chemical peel. Dermabrasion or a stronger chemical peel is better if your skin problems are below the surface skin layers. The amount of time you want to spend in recovery might also influence which treatment you prefer, as microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime.

How long will my results last?
Results for a single microdermabrasion treatment are relatively temporary, but they can be improved and longer-lasting by having many regular sessions at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills.

How often should I get microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you should get anywhere from 5 – 12 microdermabrasion treatments scheduled about 2 – 4 weeks apart to rejuvenate your complexion. After that, you should schedule appointments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain your skin's health. During your consultation, your technician can make a treatment plan with recommendations for your needs that outlines when you need to schedule appointments.

What treatments are most common for combining with microdermabrasion?
Since microdermabrasion is a surface-level skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. Many patients combine microdermabrasion along with a facial or an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®. You should be honest about all your aesthetic concerns in your initial consultation — so your technician can develop a comprehensive plan that meets all your goals.
