Elevated Exfoliation & Cleansing

Des Moines’ Destination for Microdermabrasion

Cleansing and exfoliating the skin is a more serious business than a lot of us may think. While at-home microdermabrasion kits exist, they never deliver the skin resurfacing results that they promise. That’s because it takes a skilled hand and personalized approach to choose the best age-defying, acne-fighting, and glow-refining treatments for your unique skin! Hush is here to be your skin care partner with safe and effective microdermabrasion and dermaplaning services.

Dermaplaning vs. Microdermabrasion: How to Choose

At Hush, we use both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion to help our clients achieve healthy, vibrant skin. Both therapies scour away dead skin and debris on the face, but they use different methods to do so. Each has its uses in different applications, and our estheticians are highly trained to determine which therapy or combination of therapies will get you your desired results.

For dermaplaning, we use a scalpel to remove the peach fuzz (vellus hair) and layers of dead skin cells from your face. This delicate process softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves skin immediately smooth and vibrant. Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, is an advanced skin care technology. A diamond-tipped device deeply exfoliates while mechanical suction removes dead skin cells and blackheads, improving tone, texture, and more!

Microdermabrasion FAQs

What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a simultaneous, two-step process. Our microdermabrasion device is equipped with a diamond-tip applicator, which exfoliates your skin as it glides along, removing the rough, dead skin cells and other impurities on the outer layer of skin. At the same time, the scoured-away debris is suctioned into the device, leaving your skin fresh and free of irritants that can clog pores and lead to inflammation.
How long do microdermabrasion results last?
Microdermabrasion will stimulate new cellular growth, and give the skin a fresh, smooth, and luminous look for about one month. Depending on your skin’s condition, results could last longer. But because our skin starts a renewal process every 28 days, many clients like to set up a monthly maintenance schedule. We’re happy to provide recommendations for a schedule that fits your personal lifestyle and goals!
Is dermaplaning good for your skin?
At Hush, we would never recommend any treatment that could be harmful to your skin. Dermaplaning is very safe, using a sterile surgical-grade blade to carefully shave away dead skin cells, remove soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils, and even reduce the appearance of skin imperfections like acne scars. Dermaplaning helps rid your skin of the impurities holding it back and encourages the healthy skin below to shine through!
