Microdermabrasion is a quick and professional skin exfoliation treatment. With a short procedure, we can help you unveil smoother, brighter skin.
This treatment is one of the many skin renewal options available to you at Revalla plastic surgery in Denver.
A microdermabrasion treatment can help reduce problems like:
- Mild acne
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
If you want to refresh your look with low risk and no downtime, microdermabrasion may be right for you. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for pregnant women, or for anyone with very serious acne.
Techniques in Microdermabrasion
Most microdermabrasion treatments perform a thorough exfoliation of the facial skin. During microdermabrasion, you will lie down comfortably and an aesthetician applies a special handpiece that gently blows crystals onto the skin, and then removes them with suction. Without significantly damaging the tissue, these tiny aluminum oxide crystals gently remove the dead, dull outer skin cells.
Multiple passes are made over problem areas that need greater improvement. For a more aggressive treatment, the aesthetician can also adjust the amount of suction. If you have sensitive skin, or if you're new to microdermabrasion, mild suction can be used.
What happens after microdermabrasion?
There's no downtime after microdermabrasion, but you will need to follow our aesthetician's post-treatment instructions. Patients are usually advised to use sun protection.
How many microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
Microdermabrasion treatments are usually performed as a series. Once your desired results are achieved, maintenance sessions may be recommended for results that are long-lasting.
What results can I expect?
Microdermabrasion is a mild treatment that gets mild results. Damage to the skin is minimized, which limits our ability to remove serious skin texture irregularities. For the right patient, however, microdermabrasion can brighten up and smooth out the skin.
