When you touch your face, does your complexion feel smooth and soft or like sand paper? The surface skin layer can become clogged with damaged skin cells that can make your complexion uneven and dull. At Sheer Beauty Medical Spa, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Childers performs medical spa services like nonsurgical skin resurfacing using microdermabrasion. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion removes the upper layer of dead skin cells so your face is healthier and brighter. This procedure may be performed on its own or along with a complementary skin treatment, such as a chemical peel or dermal filler, for greater results. At your initial consultation at one of our Inland Empire locations, we will develop a custom treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.
"Glennda will never steer you in the wrong direction. Over the years my skin has obviously changed. I've had some freak out moments and I know in those moments, she will make it all better. Thank you Glennda for continuing to keep my skin at its full potential. In the past with her i have had microdermabrasion, pumpkin peels etc. but my favorite of all time is a hydra facial. It's just what works for me right now. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin and there's no better feeling than that fresh skin glow and extra confidence. Skin care can be expensive but she won't try to up service you just for the sake of it. I have always felt confident in her recommendations and i know I'm in good hands. I can't thank her enough :)"- B.G. / Yelp / Sep 02, 2018
"Glennda Ríos (aka “My face fairy”) has been my esthetician for 5 years at Sheer Beauty and 2 years at her previous location. Yes, that’s how good she is I followed her to Upland! I see Glennda once per month on the skin fit membership and I couldn’t be happier! Each month she takes the time to really evaluate my skin and make a recommendation as to what I need. She then goes over what she will be doing and talks about price with me. I have had facials,hydra facials , microdermabrasion, VI peel and Blue peel. Each time I leave Sheer Beauty my skin is glowing and I’m already thinking about what my next session will bring! I also see Nurse Sally who is so knowledgeable and kind! She makes me feel at ease and talks me through my treatment, which I really appreciate!"- G.B. / Google / Sep 08, 2018
Microdermabrasion Ideal Candidates
Microdermabrasion may reduce the visibility of blemishes on the skin's surface such as fine lines, uneven skin texture, dull skin tone, sun damage, scars, and clogged pores. It is appropriate for men and women of every skin type and tone that would like clearer, healthier skin. These treatments are typically used on the face; however, it may also be performed on the skin on your neck, chest, and hands. Microdermabrasion shouldn't be used on skin with an open wound or a chronic skin condition, such as rosacea or acne.
Microdermabrasion Procedure Technique
Microdermabrasion is done at our offices following a consultation. During the procedure, you will be asked to sit back in a comfortable chair as the skin to be treated is prepared and cleaned. The handpiece will be passed along your skin as it both exfoliates and sucks up the dead skin and crystals. Although the process may feel rough, it is not uncomfortable, so you shouldn't need a local anesthetic or numbing cream. The microdermabrasion will be performed evenly in the selected areas, but with extra care in delicate areas like around the eyes. After the treatment is done, your skin will be cleaned to get rid of any leftover debris before a moisturizer, chosen for your skin's needs with sunscreen, is massaged into the skin.
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
Following your treatment, you may continue your regular day, but you need to apply some form of sun protection since the treated skin will be susceptible to sun damage. Your skin will feel softer and the tone will be more even. To prolong the results of your treatment, we suggest having microdermabrasion once every 4 – 6 weeks. Most Sheer Beauty Medical Spa patients feel that after microdermabrasion, their skin care products (particularly creams and lotions) soak easily into the skin for more effective results.
