Most of my Heaven on Earth’s facial guests come to me wanting help with their dry, dull skin. Many are also looking for solutions for skin problems such as sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring. Sure, there are “miracle” skin creams and potions that promise to help with these issues, but they don’t have the time-tested effects of microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that sprays fine crystals over the face to remove the top layers of dead skin and impurities to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion. Side effects are minimal and short-lived. After the procedure, you can go about your day as usual.
If you’re looking for a facial cleansing procedure in Aspen, microdermabrasion is a safe, long-lasting solution.
Microdermabrasion In Aspen: Upgrade Your Skin Routine
To prepare for the procedure, don’t use any retinol products the week before your microdermabrasion facial. Tanning beds, tanning creams, and waxing are also a no-no the week leading up to your appointment. The actual procedure only takes 30-minutes and it can also be added to any other facial for a deeper exfoliation. Using a patented turbo flow system, crystals are propelled onto the skin to exfoliate the dead skin cells off the face. There’s no discomfort and minimal irritation to the skin. To keep your skin moisturized and protected, I’ll apply a hydrating sunscreen to your face.
What are the Benefits to Microdermabrasion?
The benefits that microdermabrasion brings are plentiful. Here are just a few of the conditions it can help:
• fine lines and wrinkles
• hyperpigmentation, age spots, and brown spots
• enlarged pores and blackheads
• acne and acne scars
• stretch marks
• dull-looking skin complexion
• uneven skin tone and texture
• sun damage
What is the Aftercare Like for Microdermabrasion?
It’s normal to experience temporary redness, slight swelling, and mild tenderness that goes away within a couple of hours. Most guests say it feels like a slight sunburn. Keep your skin moisturized and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using acids or any acne products for a few days. Retinols should be discontinued for the week after. It’s imperative you wear sunscreen while your skin is healing because it’ll be more sensitive to the sun.
Results are usually noticeable right after the procedure. A series of 6 to 10 is recommended depending on your skin goals and conditions. After that, we can decide on a maintenance program for you.
