Meet Allie

Allie noticed results from her treatment right away.

I came to see the surgeons at Mountain State because my face was really breaking out, and I had a lot of acne just in general all over my face. The surgeons at Mountain State recommended that I get the microdermabrasion done with a chemical peel on top of that. After having my procedure done, I’ve noticed that my skin is just basically a lot more clear, and I don’t get breakouts as much as I used to. I noticed a change in my complexion almost right away. The staff and the surgeons at Mountain State are wonderful. They treated me like I was family. My confidence has skyrocketed because of this procedure, and I would never think of going anywhere else. I wish that somebody would have told me about this years ago. If you were thinking about getting the microdermabrasion scrub done, I would definitely tell you to go to Mountain State just because the staff is amazing. They always make me feel comfortable, and my confidence has never been better.

Common questions about microdermabrasion

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive procedure that removes superficial skin cells using an exfoliation device. This procedure has been FDA-approved since 1996. Common uses include:

  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve hyperpigmentation
  • Treat acne and acne scars
  • Treat age spots
  • Improve the overall appearance of skin

How does the procedure work?

The procedure will last about 30 minutes. During this time, we gently lift and remove damaged skin. This gentle exfoliation is key to achieving a more youthful look. You may experience a mild scratching sensation, but no pain should be felt. Neither anesthesia nor numbing agents are needed for this procedure. Recovery time is minimal, if needed at all.

When can I expect results?

You can expect to see results immediately after the procedure. To achieve maximum results, this treatment is often recommended with facials and chemical peels as well. Since treatments are tailored to each patient skincare needs, microdermabrasion works best as an ongoing skin care treatment.

Common questions about chemical peels

What are chemical peels?

How does the procedure work?

During your consultation, we give you a thorough evaluation to determine your skin type (the ideal candidate has fair skin and light hair), areas of concern, and depth of treatment. We may ask you to stop taking certain medications prior to your chemical peel treatment.

There are three types of chemical peels:

  • Superficial peel. We apply a mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy, to the skin to remove only the outermost dermal layer. This light chemical peel is also known as a “lunchtime” peel. Healing time is approximately 1 to 7 days.
  • Medium peel. We use a stronger chemical solution to peel away damaged cells on the outer and middle layers of the skin. Healing time is approximately 7 to 14 days.
  • Deep peel. We apply a very strong chemical solution to penetrate the middle layer of the skin and remove damaged cells. Healing time is approximately 14–21 days.

During your chemical peel treatment, it is normal to feel a stinging sensation. Stronger peelings may sting more than a light peeling. Redness, swelling, and irritation may occur. We may give or prescribe lotion, cream, or medication to make you more comfortable as you heal.

It is important that you temporarily avoid sun exposure after any chemical peel. The time period can vary due to your skin type, healing process, and the type of chemical peel treatment. We will provide you with detailed instructions to guide you throughout every step of the way.
