If you’re struggling with aging skin, skin flaws, age spots, or other skin concerns, these can be treated without invasive measures that require downtime. Your skin can be bright, toned, fresh and beautiful. With microdermabrasion in Denver at La Fontaine Aesthetics, wrinkles, pigmentation concerns, dullness, and other skin issues can be effectively addressed, leaving it renewed and revitalized.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a safe, FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin tone and texture with a uniquely powerful exfoliation technique that removes dead, damaged skin and reveals new, healthy skin beneath. During microdermabrasion, tiny rough grains are applied to gently polish away dead skin cells from the surface layer of the skin. It can be used on the face, chest, neck, arms, or hands.

The sanding action of microdermabrasion results in a more radiant complexion. It also helps thicken the skin’s collagen, restoring some of the elasticity that is lost as we age and collagen production declines. This results in less sagging and a plumper, suppler look to the skin and arguably the best microdermabrasion Denver has to offer.

During a microdermabrasion procedure, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin, gently removing the top layer of skin only. Because it is so much less aggressive, it is appropriate for all skin types and colors, and does not require the application of an anesthetic.

What Types of Conditions Can be Improved With Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is highly effective in treating the more common skin problems, particularly those associated with aging skin. It can:

  • Reduce or lighten hyperpigmentation, including freckles, age spots and dark patches of skin
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
  • Reduce or eliminate acne scars

What is the Procedure for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is convenient and painless. Each treatment takes only 30 to 60 minutes. Microdermabrasion can be administered in either of two ways: (Both treatments take about half an hour.)

A hand-held device sprays tiny (thus, the “micro”) crystals across the face. Simultaneously, a vacuum attached to the device suctions the crystals, along with the dead or loosened skin that has been removed. You may experience a slight sensation of scratching as the crystals sand off the skin.

A diamond-tipped wand that scrapes the top layer of skin is moved across the face. This also has a vacuum attached, so the removed skin is immediately suctioned up. The want produces a vibrating sensation as it is moved across the skin.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A series of four to six treatments is the usual recommendation, however, the actual number will depend on how tough or acne-prone or how sensitive your skin might be. On average, the skin regenerates every 30 days, so the results are temporary, and the treatment will need to be repeated to maintain the benefits. Initially, we recommend five to twelve treatments spaced two to three weeks apart.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments achieve a range of benefits for individuals who want to improve and refresh their skin. Even one microdermabrasion treatment will help accomplish the following benefits:

  • A more even skin tone
  • Smoother, less visible scars and stretch marks
  • Stimulates collagen
  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clearer, more refreshed skin
  • A boost in collagen production
  • Brighter, more radiant skin
  • Resolved hyperpigmentation
  • Reduced acne
  • Helps makeup go on more smoothly

Who is a Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

We will examine your skin during your consultation to determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for microdermabrasion in Denver at La Fontaine Aesthetics. Microdermabrasion treatments are designed for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, uneven discoloration, acne and acne scars, age spots, rosacea, and other skin imperfections that commonly appear or worsen with age. Candidates for microdermabrasion should meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Are not pregnant
  • Do not have deep scars
  • Have no undiagnosed lesions
  • Have not had a recent herpes outbreak
  • Have no facial warts

What is the Recovery Like After Microdermabrasion?

While dermabrasion requires two to four weeks of recovery, there is no downtime with microdermabrasion; you may resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure. Your skin may be pink, and it will probably feel a bit dry and tight, as if you had sunburn or windburn, but this is easily remedied by applying a good moisturizer and typically subsides within 24 hours. It is also recommended that you avoid exposure to the sun for the first few days after the procedure. If you must leave the house, use sunscreen.

Does Microdermabrasion Pose Any Risks?

The delivery team at La Fontaine is highly experienced in the use of microdermabrasion, and we have a two-pronged approach to avoiding this risk. The first is to provide our patients with eye protectors; the second is to administer the treatment with the level of care with which we administer all the treatments we offer.

There may be some discomfort with the procedure, but the biggest risk that has been reported is from getting crystals in the eyes – no need to worry at La Fontaine about this concern, where patient health and safety is managed with extreme care.
