WHAT IS A MICRODERMABRASION SKIN CARE TREATMENT?
At Waxing and Skincare by Celeste, we get many people asking about this procedure? You hear the service name and it seems like every spa offers it, but many fail to mention what exactly it is and how it can help your skin. Even though it sounds like a complicated treatment, the idea is pretty simple. It is a non-chemical skincare treatment procedure that exfoliates the skin by removing the outermost layer of skin. This skin care treatment removes the damaged first layer of skin and exposes a deep layer of skin. It stimulates and rebuilds collagen and deep elastic fibers in the dermis and with time it reveals new younger glowing skin. It can help with many conditions and can give you the glow you are looking for. It can also help with the following skin conditions: excess oily skin, skin texture problems, blackheads, age spots, sun spots, sun damage, acne, acne scars, fine lines, clogged pores, smooth and soften rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tones.
HOW DOES IT WORK MICRODER?
There are two types of San Diego microdermabrasion, crystal, and diamond. Crystal microdermabrasion is an aluminum oxide crystal sandblaster. The crystals exfoliate the skin while a mild suction created by the machine removes crystals and skin debris. The other type of is a diamond tip variation of this treatment. Diamond is the newer version of this treatment. This procedure uses a diamond-tip wand which polishes the skin. Most Diamond-tip machines come with several wands that are ranked from very fine to coarse. Diamond-tipped wands have diamond chip particles on the end which are the workhorse of the system. A slight suction allows for the machine to remove any freshly polished skin and any particles left over.
Microdermabrasion is a wonderful skin treatment for a good healthy exfoliation, but when paired with a chemical peel or facial treatment the benefits really start to add up. As the diamond tip slowly starts to remove the damaged top layer of skin, the remaining layer is new. With only a thin layer of skin exposed, the chemical peel can now easily penetrate your skin. Combining a chemical peel with this treatment allows for the best penetration from either a beta hydroxy acid or an alpha hydroxy acid. We recommend this treatment for those looking to get the best out of any chemical peel. All our chemical peels can be combined with this procedure so please ask..
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR A MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT?
We recommend to stop any other treatments or services like tanning, peels, any injections for about two weeks before scheduling your appointment and avoid the sun as much as possible.
HOW LONG DOES MICRODERMABRASION TAKE?
Microdermabrasion treatment may last anywhere from 30 minutes or more depending if you include add-ons like one or two layers of chemical peels.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT?
We recommend doing a San Diego microdermabrasion every 3-4 weeks for about 8-10 sessions. With different skin types result will vary. Getting your skin to look its best take time. Choosing the right treatments and at home, car products will help achieve maximum results. Please speak with our estheticians to create a custom treatment plan for your skin type.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT?
With our microdermabrasion San Diego treatments, you will see improvements in your skin over time. Acne scars can become less noticeable and also wrinkles, age spots and fine lines will see improvements. Some people will experience some redness after the treatment, but will usually go away in 1-2 days depending on the person. Most of the time it will go away on the same day. Microdermabrasion will not cause any pain.
SPF, SPF, SPF. Since we remove the top layer of skin, you should stay out of the sun and apply SPF. Please speak to our estheticians to provide you with instructions on other ways to take care of your skin as you heal.

What Our Clients Say
“Definitely not going anywhere else. This place is the best. From the service itself to the front desk
“This place is amazing! I got my first Brazilian wax ever done by Kristine who was so nice and talked me through everything. And then just recently had my second wax by Marcela and she was incredibly sweet. Both were very detailed and took their time to make sure everything was perfect. I will definitely be returning here for future waxes.“
“I went there for the first time to get my second Brazilian ever and I loved it! Their staff is very friendly and they definitely know what they’re doing. I can confirm they use good quality products as my skin felt smooth and perfect afterward. I’ll be a regular and would totally recommend!“
“Hands down one of the best skincare and waxing spas. I was able to make my appointment within an hour of my call and the staff was professional and polite. My esthetician, Marcela, was awesome. She made sure I was comfortable and she was very particular. You can tell she is a perfectionist and loves her job“
“Celeste is so sweet. I had only gotten waxed a couple of times before meeting her and was always uncomfortable with it. Once I started going here so made me feel at ease and I go every 4-5 weeks now (that’s huge for me!). Her location is super cute and in a convenient location. She is quick and gets the job done in less than 30 minutes. Highly recommend going there for any facials or waxing needs.“
“My first time going in for a Brazilian! I was very nervous and worried about how much it was going to hurt! The staff was extremely helpful and Celeste made the process go as smoothly as possible. Very knowledgeable and kept my mind off the waxing 🙂 Of course it hurt, but was tolerable. I will definitely be going in again to see Celeste. I definitely recommend checking them out.“
