Our group is led by Dr. Gordon Sasaki, who is triple board-certified in general and plastic surgery. Dr. Sasaki is widely recognized for his significant surgical skill and successful creation of a thriving practice that integrates the most effective surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic skin care treatments available.
Read why our microdermabrasion therapy meets Dr. Sasaki’s rigorous standards for patient safety, comfort, and satisfaction.
Microdermabrasion works by painlessly removing the top skin layers (epidermis). This helps eliminate surface irregularities and results in smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearing skin overall.
When MicroDermabrasion is combined with specific cosmeceuticals,it also stimulates natural collagen production, which is a protein your body uses to generate new skin cells. Microdermabrasion may be used as a standalone treatment or as part of a medical facial that includes anti-aging cosmeceuticals and other skin nourishing products.
When performed by a licensed skin care specialist, microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive exfoliating treatment that safely reduces the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Shallow acne scars
- Dark spots related to previous acne outbreaks
- Early skin changes related to sun exposure
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
Medical microdermabrasion is typically used on the face, jawline, and neck. It may also be helpful in treating surface irregularities in other areas, such as stretch marks on your thighs or abdomen.
Is there a recovery time for microdermabrasion?
The medical-grade products we use at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center are specifically tailored to complement your skin tone, texture, and type.
Your skin may be slightly pink for a brief time following microdermabrasion, but there is no downtime or recovery needed after a treatment.
Our expertly trained and licensed skin care specialists are under the direct supervision of Dr. Sasaki. We work closely with each client to ensure your treatments leave you feeling radiant rather than uncomfortable.
Your specialist also provides detailed instructions regarding sun protection, cleansing, moisturizing, and lipid replenishing following a microdermabrasion treatment. Adhering to these simple guidelines helps ensure the best possible results.
For your convenience, we also offer a medical-grade skincare product line through the Sasaki InnoVessence SkinCare Center.
How long do microdermabrasion results last?
Microdermabrasion focuses only on the top skin layer, so the results are temporary. Fortunately, the therapy is gentle enough that it can be safely repeated every few weeks.
Depending on your skin care needs, you may benefit from a series of more frequent treatments initially, but which are gradually spaced out. Notably, our facilities are designed to provide you with a soothing spa-like experience every time you visit.
