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.

Varicose veins commonly appear on the legs and ankles as people age. Other factors, such as being overweight or being pregnant, can also increase the risk of developing these unsightly intrusions. Taking cautionary measures now can help you reduce your chance of dealing with varicose veins in the future. Continue reading to learn some tips to prevent varicose veins.
Maintain a Healthy Weight
Your weight can play a big role in how and when your body starts forming varicose veins. Being overweight or obese puts too much pressure on the veins and negatively affects blood flow, making varicose veins almost inevitable. A healthy weight will reverse these issues and help you prevent varicose veins. Staying active to lose or maintain weight is also good for improving circulation throughout your legs, which can help to stop varicose veins before they start.
Reevaluate Your Wardrobe
Clothing is another important factor that can increase your risk of developing varicose veins. If you prefer clothing that is tight fitting around your waist or thighs, you may be harming your circulation. Looser-fitting clothes can help you maintain better circulation. If you wear high heels regularly, you might want to consider choosing shorter heels or opting for flat shoes sometimes, as high heels decrease muscle contraction in the calves and increase pressure that can lead to varicose veins.
Avoid Sitting or Standing for Long Periods of Time
Sitting or standing for too long is another common culprit of varicose vein development. Both habits can affect circulation and increase a person’s risk for developing varicose veins or worsening existing ones. If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time, stand up and walk around a few times throughout the day to improve blood flow. If your job requires you to stand, try to sit and elevate your feet a few times throughout your workday.

Sunscreen is a vital tool in the fight against skin cancer. Unfortunately, too many people forget to wear sunscreen or do not know how to apply it properly. Learning how to properly apply sunscreen can help you stay safe while having fun in the sun this summer.
As you will see in this video, it is important to choose a water-resistant and broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
