Exfoliating is a great way to keep your skin healthy and your complexion glowing. Microdermabrasion is a professional skin care treatment that produces enhanced results compared to home treatments. Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics offers microdermabrasion for men and women in Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, and surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is one of our minimally-invasive skin care treatments. It works by removing damaged and dead skin cells, oils, dirt, and other irritants from the outermost layer of skin. After the treatment, your complexion is brighter, and your skin feels silky smooth. Microdermabrasion also stimulates cell turnover, so the results last.
What Can Be Treated with Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a great addition to your routine skin care, and it can also address specific issues, such as:
- Fine lines
- Dry, flaky skin
- Age spots
- Acne scars
How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed with a handheld device that is designed with a special tip to lightly scrub your skin. The tip has tiny crystals that dislodge dead skin cells and other substances, and a small suction tube removes the resulting debris from the surface of your skin. The wand is moved gently across your skin, so it will not irritate or damage your skin. A microdermabrasion treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
There is no recovery required after a microdermabrasion treatment. You may notice a slightly pink color to your skin, and it may feel especially sensitive to sunlight for a few hours. You can apply makeup and skin care products right after the treatment. Full results can take up to seven to 10 days. Acne scars and other flaws may require more than one treatment.
How Long Do Microdermabrasion Results Last?
In most cases, men and women should have a microdermabrasion treatment every month. It helps keep your skin healthy, and your skin care products penetrate better. If you have good, healthy skin, we recommend that you have the treatment every two to three months.
