Thanks to the dermabrasion procedure, dull, drab skin can now be a thing of the past. Dr. Hayes Gladstone of Gladstone Clinic performs the dermaplaning procedure for the residents of San Ramon, San Francisco, Pleasanton and the surrounding communities in California.
What Is Dermabrasion?
Dermabrasion is a medical spa procedure in which the top layers of skin are “sanded” away using a diamond wheel or wire brush. In the process, micro-injuries occur, which in turn spur the body to produce new collagen as part of the healing process. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the skin, ensuring there is little or no discomfort throughout.
DermaSweep™ Infusion is a revolutionary new procedure that addresses a variety of skin concerns and can be highly customized for each patient. Sometimes hailed as “skin fitness,” the DermaSweep™ Infusion treatment provides your skin with three very important benefits:
- Exfoliation to remove damage and bring out your inner glow
- Circulation to improve lymphatic drainage and increase oxygen flow
- Infusion, which provides your skin with the valuable peptides, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid needed for rejuvenation
Benefits of Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion can be used to address a number of skin issues:
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Dermabrasion?
Many of our patients choose dermabrasion because they have more than one skin issue they would like to address. For example, many people notice that in addition to wrinkles, their skin is no longer as bright as it once was. Others have achieved unsatisfactory results through other skin care methods, or desire a more dramatic change to prepare themselves for a major life event such as a class reunion.
What Do I Need to Do Before Dermabrasion?
Your skin should be in good health prior to dermabrasion, so you should avoid sunburns, cuts, or open wounds.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Dermabrasion?
Our esthetician can easily treat the entire face in around an hour, while smaller areas will take much less time.
What to Expect After Dermabrasion
Red or pink skin is something most patients experience. Within a week or so, your skin should be only slightly pink, and the hue should not be visible underneath your makeup. You may notice some light swelling and discomfort for a few days, but this can easily be managed with an over-the-counter medication.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Dermabrasion?
When performed by a skilled esthetician, the odds of developing scars from dermabrasion are very slim. If you are considering dermabrasion, trust your results to the professionals here at Gladstone Clinic who always consider the safety and well-being of every patient first and foremost.
When Will I See the Results?
It will likely take around two weeks or so before you notice the full results, as this is the amount of time normally required for any redness to subside and new skin to begin growing.
How Long Will the Results of Dermabrasion Last?
Dermabrasion provides very long lasting results; however, those results may be altered by your future exposure to sunlight or environmental toxins.
How Much Does Dermabrasion Cost in San Ramon?
