Microdermabrasion 


safe + effective Skin Exfoliation

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive dermabrasion procedure that exfoliates and removes the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. This skin rejuvenation facial treatment gently polishes the skin by lifting dead skin cells off the surface to expose brighter and smoother skin. We offer Microdermabrasion in Denver to people looking for solution for minimizing the results of aging.

Stimulating the Skin

Microdermabrasion clinical skin care treatment also stimulates the dermis of the skin, promoting new, healthy cell growth, as well as collagen production plus skin tightening. There is no “down-time” and results can be seen immediately, although the best improvement will be seen after the third or fourth treatment. Schedule a consultation with Aesthetics by Design skin care clinic and discover the best microdermabrasion in Denver.

Microdermabrasion types

There are two methods of microdermabrasion procedures: a crystal or powder-based treatment and mechanical treatment: Crystal-based microdermabrasion and Mechanical microdermabrasion. Crystal-based microdermabrasion applies oxide crystals under pressure to the skin surface but are generally less effective and much messier due to powder embedding into clothing and hair. Mechanical microdermabrasion gently sands away debris from the skin’s surface utilizing an advanced diamond tipped wand. At Aesthetics by Design’s Denver Skin Clinic, microdermabrasion is performed using the Diamondtome microdermabrator, a medical-grade version of Altair’s diamond wand microdermabrasion system only available through physician-directed skin care centers.

conducting microdermabrasion 

Prior to your microdermabrasion one of our medical aestheticians will first complete a comprehensive skin care evaluation to assess your unique skincare needs. Treatments begin with a thorough cleansing and degreasing of the skin. This prepares the outer layers of your skin for the treatment. The desired areas to be treated are then passed over with the diamond-tipped wand in a cross-hatch, grind-like pattern. to “slough off” dead skin cells, while a vacuum suctions the debris through the center of the wand. After the microdermabrasion, extractions of clogged pores are completed as needed. We complete the procedure by applying a moisturizer and sun block. The treatment time for the entire face is about 30 to 40 minutes. 

Following a Microdermabrasion Session

Microdermabrasion is a simple, pain-free procedure leaving you with a more beautiful glow in under an hour. No premedication with topical anesthetics is required. Make-up may be applied right after the treatment and you may resume most activities immediately. A mild degree of redness is expected to last a day or two following the treatment. You may also experience drying or light peeling a day or two after the treatment. A gentle moisturizer can be applied as often as needed. Stop the use of retinols, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid for three to five days following a microdermabrasion session, and avoid direct sun exposure for one week. Note: the daily use of a sun block is required.
