On the average, there are 342 days of potentially skin-damaging sunshine in Orange County. Plastic surgeons offer minimally invasive procedures to treat skin that has been damaged by the sun. Exposure to the sun is common among people who take advantage of the Great Outdoors in Orange County. Plastic surgeons can treat the effects of sun damage with techniques like microdermabrasion and dermaplaning.
A non-surgical alternative treatment is also available to remove the damaged top layers of skin. This procedure is called a chemical peel. The chemical peel is generally used by Orange County cosmetic surgeons to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while the dermabrasion and dermaplaning procedures are best for treating deeper skin imperfections, such as acne scars. For individuals with darker skin tones, Orange County plastic surgeons may suggest the non-chemical approach, particularly when limited areas of the face are involved, because microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are less likely to result in extreme changes to skin color.
All three procedures – dermabrasion, dermaplaning, and chemical peel – are offered by Orange County cosmetic surgeons. Many of the surgeons perform all of these procedures. They may use just one procedure or a combination, depending on the specific needs of their patients.
When considering facial smoothing procedures, be sure to consult an experienced and board-certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon of the Face and Body.
