The radiant glow and velvety quality of our youthful skin is part of what makes us beautiful, but through the wear and tear of living a full life, we develop wrinkles and fine lines, uneven tone and texture, and sun damage.

At Colorado Skin & Vein, we can help you regain the skin of your youth without surgery, painful treatments, or significant downtime.


How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Collagen, the skin’s support structure, is what helps keep young skin smooth and taut. As we age, collagen fibers stretch, break down and are slow to repair themselves, resulting in uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and the loss of that supple quality associated with beauty and vitality. Microdermabrasion can help reverse collagen damage. It works by exfoliating the surface of your skin, loosening damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen back to life. A small vacuum device suctions away the dead skin cells, leaving behind renewed, fresher skin.

Microdermabrasion is a gentler alternative to some laser skin resurfacing treatments and microneedling. So if you’re not sure about more invasive treatments, microdermabrasion is a great introduction to dermatological quality skincare treatments without the risks, pain, and downtime sometimes associated with deeper treatments. Some patients even describe it as a vibrating massage to the skin.

Microdermabrasion treats:

  • Dull complexion
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Pigmentation changes
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores

Am I A Good Candidate For Microdermabrasion?

If you’re tired of over-the-counter products failing to successfully address your skin concerns, microdermabrasion may be for you. Talk to your Colorado Skin & Vein consultant about any conditions you have to help determine your candidacy. Microdermabrasion is even mild enough for pregnant or nursing women to qualify for treatment.

What Are Microdermabrasion Treatments Like?

A typical treatment takes around an hour, and is performed in the Colorado Skin & Vein’s relaxing atmosphere. Patients report a scratching sensation as damaged and dead skin cells are exfoliated. Sensitivity immediately following treatment is common, but the procedure itself is not painful, and there is no downtime. Depending on your skin’s condition, we’ll recommend skincare products to maintain and continue your beautiful results for the long-term. Sunscreen is imperative after any skin resurfacing treatment.

What Results Can I Expect From Microdermabrasion?

Patients frequently experience results after a single microdermabrasion treatment, though many seek additional treatments for a more thorough skin rejuvenation experience. Post-procedure discomfort and skin flakiness usually resolve within a few hours or days, and a proper skincare regimen, recommended by our expertly trained team, can prolong your fantastic results. Maintenance treatments may be advised for longer-lasting results or more significant skin conditions.

We bring you the latest innovative treatments and technologies, often at better prices than you can find anywhere in the Midwest.
