About Microdermabrasion

The visible skin is made up of dead skin cells that make the complexion dull, uneven, and rough. Microdermabrasion polishes away the top, dead layer of skin to let newer, healthier skin come to the surface. At Bella Lago Aesthetics in Tahoe/Truckee, California, microdermabrasion treatments are an effective, noninvasive procedure to smooth the skin tone and texture, while also improving surface skin damage, like fine lines, sun/age spots, acne, scars, clogged pores, and more. After the microdermabrasion treatment, patients have visibly improved skin that feels smoother. The new, fresh skin also absorbs skincare products more easily to help patients get the most out of their home skin care routine. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden, the owner of Bella Lago, suggests patients get regular microdermabrasion treatments at the first signs of aging to keep the skin healthier and younger-looking for as long as possible.

Best Candidates

Good candidates for microdermabrasion may exhibit:

  • Rough, dry patches of skin
  • Uneven texture and tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation spots
  • Mild acne scars

What to Expect

Most patients consider their microdermabrasion treatment to be relaxing and feel pampered with little to no discomfort. Our technician will prepare the skin first with a cleanser and a cooling solution. Using a hand-held buffer, the skin will be polished with granules to safely remove the outer layer of the skin. This will eliminate the damaged visible cells, for smoother lines and less discoloration.

Other Considerations

After the microdermabrasion session, the patient should avoid unprotected sun exposure. After 24 hours, normal makeup can be worn again without any problems or skin agitation. The face may appear to be red, but you will not need to plan on any recovery time. Our aesthetic technician will be able to answer any aftercare questions a patient may have about this treatment. Microdermabrasion can also be combined with other noninvasive treatments such as injectables for greater improvements.
