If you’re interested in smooth, bright, glowing skin (and let’s face it; who isn’t?) microdermabrasion in Fort Collins is one of the most effective ways to get the complexion you covet. But despite being a proven method for skin success, there remain a surprising number of myths surrounding the popular treatment.

If you’re considering microdermabrasion but haven’t been able to figure out what’s true — and what isn’t, we have the facts.

  1. Microdermabrasion is painful. Despite what you might think microdermabrasion doesn’t hurt. In fact; most patients even find it to be a pleasant experience. Not sure what to expect? In a nutshell, the microdermabrasion hand piece gets passed over your skin and you’ll start to feel a mild scratching as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells. This feeling (which doesn’t hurt), is quickly replaced by a vibrating sensation, akin to a massage.
  2. Each session takes a long time. The typical session for microdermabrasion takes only between 15 and 30 minutes, which means it’s the perfect treatment to fit into your busy schedule.
  3. It’s not safe. If you’re worried about the safety of microdermabrasion, don’t be. It’s a common, non-surgical procedure with minimal risk involved.
  4. It doesn’t do anything useful. Exfoliation is one of the most important skin care steps and you can think of microdermabrasion as the speediest path to a smoother complexion. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells and debris (which clog pores and leave skin lacklustre) and improving the texture of the skin.
