If you’re looking for a quick and effective way to improve your skin’s appearance, consider setting up a microdermabrasion appointment at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado. To maximize the results of your microdermabrasion, it’s important to follow a few care guidelines.
It’s common to feel slightly uncomfortable for a few hours after your treatment. Rinsing your face with cool water is a great way to reduce discomfort. When washing your face, stay away from cleaners with harsh chemicals and perfumes. After each rinse, consider applying an unscented facial moisturizer. Try your best to stay out of the sun for a few days after your microdermabrasion, and contact your dermatologist if you encounter any problems. You should be able to resume your normal skin care routine within two or three days.
Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado is proud to provide microdermabrasion services for Denver-area residents. Call (303) 558-3192 to set up an appointment for microdermabrasion, Botox, or another skin-care procedure.

Caring for your skin is an ongoing process that requires regular visits to the dermatologist and the use of skin care products. You should always listen to your dermatologist—there’s a lot of misinformation regarding skin care that can do more harm than good. Here are a few common anti-aging myths that you may have heard.
Expensive Creams are Always Better
“Pricier is better” is a common fallacy that applies to virtually all products—skin-care products included. Just because a product is more expensive than others doesn’t mean it will provide better results your skin specifically. For the best results, ask your dermatologist to prescribe or recommend skin-care products based on your skin type.
Skin Irritation is Normal
Some people accept skin irritation as the price of looking younger. However, you don’t have to endure discomfort every time you apply anti-aging skin-care products. If you start slowly and let your body adapt to new anti-aging products, skin care should be a breeze.
It’s OK to Stop Wearing Sunscreen
Many people insist that children are the only ones susceptible to sun damage, as their skin is suppler. However, adults are just as vulnerable to sun damage, and should continue to wear sunscreen as they age. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 can help prevent skin cancer.
Diet Doesn’t Affect Skin Health After a Certain Age
Some people associate acne with consuming greasy foods as a teenager. They don’t think that their diet will continue to affect their skin as they age. However, a healthy diet is an extremely important aspect of skin care at any age. Consuming plenty of vitamins is essential for preventing hair loss, cracked skin, and discolored skin.

Skin cancer is by far the most common form of cancer among men and women. The best way to identify skin cancer as early as possible is to regularly examine your skin and keep track of potentially dangerous moles.
This video demonstrates how to conduct a thorough skin examination. It’s a good idea to have another person help you perform the exam so you can keep tabs on hard-to-see areas. When examining your skin, remember the ABCDEs of potentially cancerous moles: Asymmetry, border irregularities, color variation, diameter, and evolution.
If you suspect that one of your moles may be cancerous, visit Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado. You can call (303) 558-3192 to make an appointment at our Denver dermatology and skin care center.

As you age, your skin is bound to collect wrinkles, scars, and other minor but noticeable imperfections. If you’d like to restore your skin’s smooth appearance, you might consider microdermabrasion. DiamondTome skin resurfacing is one of the most sophisticated types of microdermabrasion available, and can help you achieve the results you’re looking for. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have about DiamondTome MicroExfoliation.
What is MicroExfoliation?
MicroExfoliation is a relatively new dermal treatment that removes the top layer of dead skin cells using specially designed diamond chips. DiamondTome skin resurfacing involves the use of a vacuum to completely remove the dead skin cells from the face.
What are the Benefits of MicroExfoliation?
Once the old, dead skin cells are removed, the new, healthy layer of skin can thrive. By vacuuming dead skin cells, MicroExfoliation prevents loose particles from irritating the new layer of skin. This is one reason why many people choose DiamondTome skin resurfacing over traditional microdermabrasion.
Are There Any Risks Involved?
DiamondTome skin resurfacing is a completely safe, non-invasive procedure that produces great results. At Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado, the procedure is performed by a fully trained and qualified skin care expert. DiamondTome skin resurfacing isn’t just safe, it’s painless, too.
How Long Until I See Results?
You will see results immediately after your first skin resurfacing treatment. For lasting results, however, you might consider going in for six to eight treatments over a period of three to four months. After the initial round of treatments, you can maintain your good looks by scheduling additional treatments every few months.
DiamondTome skin resurfacing is safe, effective, and can be performed during your lunch break. If you’re interested in skin resurfacing, don’t hesitate to call Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado at (303) 558-3192. One of our Denver dermatologists will gladly recommend a skin treatment option that makes you look years younger.

If your skin is no longer glowing and healthy in appearance, it may be time to start thinking about laser skin treatments. Skin doctors offer a number of great treatments designed to get rid of blemishes and wrinkles while returning skin to its youthful appearance.
Fraxel laser technology makes it easier than ever for skin doctors to provide these amazing services for clients. This technology uses fractional photothermolysis to gradually remodel the collagen in the skin. After treatment, clients typically notice younger-looking skin that is softer, smoother, and more even in tone. The Fraxel laser treats small portions of skin, resulting in short recovery times. Clients may require multiple treatments to obtain the results they want.
Visit Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado for more information about Fraxel laser technology and how it improves aging skin. You can also find some fast facts on our website or call us at (303) 558-3192 to learn about our Denver dermatology clinic.
