Microdermabrasion for Skin Rejuvenation Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and West Hollywood
Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, and acne scars. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. It has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Microdermabrasion is appropriate for patients with minor skin issues or imperfections. Candidates must be healthy with no scarring or healing issues. Women who are pregnant are not ideal candidates for the treatment. Candidates must be committed to following preparation and aftercare instructions for safe and effective treatment.
During your consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns and goals. We will evaluate your medical records and assess the condition of your skin.
It is important to tell us about past skin treatments and any current medications or supplements. If you have recently undergone a chemical peel, tanning, or waxing, we will consider these situations when scheduling your microdermabrasion treatment.
We will recommend the ideal treatment plan based on your skin condition and goals. We will be happy to answer any questions.
Skincare instructions will be provided to prepare you for your upcoming microdermabrasion treatment session.

How Is Microdermabrasion Performed?
The handpiece emits crystals onto the surface of the skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion or “polishing” process. Each treatment takes from 30 minutes to an hour. The number of treatments recommended for maximal results can range between 5 and 12, spaced from 2 to 3 weeks apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed. Microdermabrasion may be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect.
What Are the Benefits?
- Virtually no side effects.
- Gives the skin an overall fresh, healthy-looking glow.
- Nonsurgical, safe, effective “lunch hour” procedure.
- Effective on all skin colors and types.
- No anesthetic is required.

What Is Aftercare Like?
The patient can go home right after the microdermabrasion treatment. There is no recovery period needed. On the first day after treatment, patients may experience temporary redness on the skin due to increased blood circulation. Skincare instructions will be provided, including recommendations for skin moisturizers, for optimal and long-lasting results.
The Cost of Microdermabrasion
The cost of microdermabrasion will depend on the treatment plan. The area to be treated and the products used during the treatment may influence the overall price of the treatment.
