Fort Collins Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Skin resurfacing is a specific type of skin rejuvenation that involves removing layers of built-up skin cells and debris, accelerating your skin’s natural process of desquamation. For example, a chemical peel causes this outer layer of skin to peel away, revealing the fresher and smoother layer underneath. Microdermabrasion treatments use tiny abrasive crystals to exfoliate dead skin cells for a brighter, smoother complexion. The depth of resurfacing determines the results and downtime. Skin resurfacing treatments that only remove epidermal cells, such as a superficial chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment, have minimal downtime and risk. These skin treatments can make the skin appear smoother and more radiant. However, to get rid of wrinkles you need skin resurfacing treatments that go deeper into the dermal layer. These generally involve more downtime.
All resurfacing treatments can address a wide variety of skin imperfections, including lines and wrinkles, discoloration, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. We have a variety of skin rejuvenation treatment options for you at Xanadu Med Spa. Ready to learn more?

Microdermabrasion uses little micro-crystals to help remove any dead, dry, or unwanted skin. It brings out your skin to look healthier. It exfoliates and rejuvenates to help brighten your skin, cleans out pores, and helps your skin look refreshed. A medical-grade microdermabrasion treatment is the strongest way to exfoliate and reduce hyperpigmentation when combined with a chemical peel for a more advanced treatment.
Hydradermabrasion is a relatively new term in skin care. Spa facials have been around for many years, then came microdermabrasion, now the next step up is hydradermabrasion. Hydradermabrasion works very much like microdermabrasion because it uses a rough tip to break up the skin’s surface, and a vacuum sucks away the debris. Unlike microdermabrasion, hydradermabrasion is wet – while the tip is breaking up the skin, and the vacuum is sucking away the debris, a skin care solution is applied to the skin. There are several types of hydradermabrasion on the market today. HydraFacial is one of the leaders in hydradermabrasion and the choice of Xanadu Med Spa.
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands. “Dermaplaning requires handling a very sharp blade that’s used in surgeries, but I’ve been doing it for many years now and have never had a problem,” says Xanadu Aesthetician Rhonda.
Dermaplaning treatments are popular in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? In addition to providing incredible exfoliation, this skin rejuvenation treatment also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. “Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth,” explains Rhonda. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels. Call Xanadu today for a dermaplaning treatment in Fort Collins.
Automated Microneedling (also known as Derma-Rolling, Collagen Induction Therapy, or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Microneedling also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
