Dermabrasion Can Turn Back the Clock

Dermabrasion in La Jolla involves the removal of the top layers of skin to help restore a more youthful look. This process is more intensive and provides deeper results than microdermabrasion while being less invasive than laser treatments. The benefits of dermabrasion Include:

  • Improved appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots
  • Reduced acne scars and other blemishes
  • Enhanced skin texture and tone
  • Stimulation of collagen production for natural-looking youthfulness

How is Dermabrasion Done?

Specialized equipment is used to perform dermabrasion, and treatment typically lasts between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the desired outcome.

  1. The areas of the skin to be treated are marked and Dr. Bolitho chooses the appropriate device for the session.
  2. A very controlled abrasion of the skin's surface is done in the targeted areas using a handheld device with a spinning wheel or brush coated with a rough material such as diamond particles. The outermost layers of skin cells are removed, stimulating the production of new, healthy skin cells underneath.
  3. After the procedure, the treated skin is likely to be red, swollen, and sensitive so a soothing ointment is applied.

Am I a Candidate?

Dermabrasion is particularly beneficial for individuals over 50 or those with mature skin. It works best for individuals with fair skin, as those with darker skin tones may experience changes in skin color. Additionally, those with active skin infections, acne, or a history of keloid scars may better benefit from an alternate skin rejuvenation technique.

What You Should Know About Recovery Time

The recovery time generally takes between 7 to 10 days. Your skin may continue to be red and sensitive, but Dr. Bolitho will thoroughly discuss care instructions, answer all your questions, and check in to see how it’s going.
