Sometimes, exfoliating with at-home products just doesn’t cut it. When you find that it’s time to unclog your pores, smooth out an uneven complexion and lighten blemishes, a microdermabrasion or micropeel treatment might be in order. These exfoliation treatments effectively remove dead skin cells, leaving skin healthier, clearer and younger-looking.
Dr. Lee B. Daniel is proud to offer only the highest quality non-surgical treatments at The Guy Side medical spa, including treatments customized for male clients. As one of the most popular surgeons for men throughout the state of Oregon, he has helped thousands of local and out-of-state clients feel more confident about their looks.
If you’d like to learn more about whether skin resurfacing is right for you, please call 541-687-8900 or contact our office in Eugene today for more details. We offer free consultations for our cosmetic surgery and medical spa patients.
Before getting your treatment, you’ll have a brief, one-on-one consultation to talk about the procedure. During this time, you’ll be able to outline your goals for your skin and even map out a treatment plan with one of our Certified Advanced Aestheticians.
In addition to clearing away dead skin cells and unclogging pores, microdermabrasion and micropeel treatments can also stimulate collagen production, helping to combat signs of age. Many men will schedule regular treatments to maintain a younger complexion, or choose to combine skin resurfacing with other medical spa procedures, such as laser skin rejuvenation.
Microdermabrasion treatments only last around 30 minutes. After cleaning your skin, your Certified Advanced Aesthetician will move a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand across the surface of your skin, loosening dead cells and other types of debris, before suctioning away the crystal particles along with any residue that is removed from your skin’s surface. The sensation may feel like a vibration on the skin’s surface with gentle suction. Your Certified Advanced Aesthetician will customize each treatment for your specific needs, and may perform multiple passes over problem areas of the skin.
Micropeels combine three different procedures – dermaplaning, a chemical peel and a frozen CO2 application. Because micropeels combine both manual and chemical exfoliation, they can improve the texture and tone of the skin and can also assist in boosting your skin’s hydration levels. Depending on the level of pigmentation in your face, a micropeel may lighten your skin tone as well. Your Certified Advanced Aesthetician may recommend a series of 4 to 6 micropeel treatments over a year for lasting results.
There is no downtime required for microdermabrasion and micropeels, and you can return to your busy schedule once you leave our office. Your complexion will likely appear slightly pink when your treatment is finished, but this should fade within a few hours. Your skin will be photosensitive for about a week following your treatment, so you should use sun protection if you spend time outdoors.
Many men notice that their skin appears brighter and feels smoother immediately after a skin resurfacing treatment. Practicing proper skin care and sunscreen use can prolong your results.
