At Sheer Beauty, Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers and his staff want to address all of your skin needs, which is why we offer microdermabrasion, as well as perioral dermabrasion. Both are procedures that remove the damaged outer layers of skin in order to stimulate the generation of fresh, better looking skin. Microdermabrasion is not only good for the face, but can be used for the chest and hands, as well. However, perioral dermabrasion specifically targets lines and wrinkles around the mouth area. It is effective for treating other problems around the mouth and lips, including age spots, superficial scarring, vertical lines, and lip wrinkles.

"Microdermabrasion and blue light was awesome with Glennda!! Love her. So sweet and helps me all the time!"- N.F. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2016
"I had a consultation and hydrafacial with Charlene. First, she talked to me about my skin, and what my concerns were. She was easy to talk to and gave me great advice about skincare. She also understood that I was working on a budget, and seemed to respect that (which I really appreciate!). Then, she did the hydrafacial. It seemed a lot like microdermabrasion. It was not painful and made my skin look great afterwards. I will definitely be back to see Charlene and would love to do more hydrafacials!"- K.M. / Yelp / Jun 23, 2016
Before the procedure, the Aesthetician will ask about any skin conditions the patient may have (such as eczema and rosacea) or any medications that may make the patient’s skin sensitive (such as Retin-A). The Aesthetician will also ensure that the patient has no opens wounds of sores that could be irritated or infected by the microdermabrasion. Once the patient’s face has been cleansed and prepared, the microdermabrasion treatment can take from 30 – 60 minutes to complete. The Aesthetician will carefully use the microdermabrasion equipment to polish the skin while suctioning away the dead skin cells.
What To Except
Patients should not expect pain and swelling after a microdermabrasion treatment. They can expect some slight pinkness of the skin, and but there is generally no pain.

Microdermabrasion vs. Peels?
Chemical peels vary in strength from light peels, which have results similar to microdermabrasion to deep peels for more intense results. Recovery usually takes 7 – 8 days for a deep peel. During the recovery the patient will need to apply ointment and the Aesthetician may bandage the face after the treatment. Chemical peels can last from a few months for a light peel to years for a deep peel.
Sandblasting The Face?
While early versions of microdermabrasion were essentially like running a sandblaster over the face, leaving particles behind, modern microdermabrasion uses tools that give the technician more control. Current microdermabrasion treatments gently loosen and remove dead skin cells, which are then vacuumed away for smooth, polished skin.
After Care Tips?
Patients should be vigilant about using sun protection, especially for the first week after their microdermabrasion procedure. Patients should speak to the Aesthetician after their treatment about the best skin care products to maintain their results. Once the dead skin cells are removed, products are better able to penetrate and treat the skin. Patients should drink plenty of water before and after the procedure to keep the skin well hydrated.
