Plastic surgeon in Orange County area describes dermabrasion

Patients interested in resurfacing the skin and improving their overall texture and tone are encouraged to consider the benefits of dermabrasion in Orange County. Dr. Thuan Nguyen is a board certified plastic surgeon who provides a wide range of services in his state-of-the-art practice located in Fountain Valley, California but helps patients in surrounding communities with their aesthetic concerns. For many, this is the appearance of the skin on the face.

Dermabrasion is a popular resurfacing technique used by both men and women to address the texture and appearance of the skin. In many cases, this procedure can be used to reduce:
  • The appearance of scarring from acne, past surgeries, or trauma
  • Fine lines and wrinkles from aging
  • Poor texture and tone of the skin
Dr. Thuan Nguyen explains dermabrasion as a treatment that utilizes a special device to removes the upper layer of the skin which may be contributing to dull texture and tone. By doing so, this can also help in stimulating the body’s natural healing response and encourage it to produce collagen. Collagen is an element of the skin that is lost over time and the loss of collagen can contribute to the aging appearance of the skin as well as skin laxity. The stimulation of collagen can improve the youthful appearance of the skin over the course of time, providing long-term results.

The procedure often lasts less than an hour. It is an outpatient procedure that patients only need local anesthetics for. Patients will be comfortable during their treatment and will be given antibiotic ointment to apply on the skin to reduce the chance of infection and improve hydration and healing. Many patients are able to go home after their procedure to rest and recover. Over the course of several days, patients will notice their skin change, and after several weeks, a whole new look will be achieved. Many patients find that dermabrasion is a wonderful method of addressing tired, dull skin and some end up having dermabrasion done twice a year to maintain the results.

Dr. Thuan Nguyen and the team of The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery are here to help patients in deciding what treatment options are best for their specific skin care needs. Contact him today to book a consultation appointment.
