Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that removes the outer most layer of dead skin. This is done with light abrasion from a mechanical hand piece that sprays material onto the skin. This procedure is used to lessen scars, remove sun-damaged skin, and treat dark spots on the skin. Also called Microderm, this procedure is not very painful and doesn’t require any anesthetic. Microdermabrasion can also be used to treat acne.
Though it should not be used if you take Accutane medication in the past 12 months. Dr. Tavoussi uses this procedure for many lighter treatments of the skin. Many spas use this procedure and this is no different. Except that this procedure is done with a very well trained and experienced doctor. Skin remodeling procedures like this one can have you in, out, and back on your feet in no time. With more confidence knowing that Dr. Tavoussi has the ability and experience of a true cosmetic surgeon.
