At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, our team of licensed estheticians and registered nurses offer the next generation of microdermabrasion treatments using the advanced Hydrafacial MD and Silk Peel systems. Tradition microdermabrasion treatments used aluminum-based crystals or other abrasive particles that could potentially irritate the skin and pose health concerns. These newer microdermabrasion treatments are superior, using suction and a special handpiece to remove dead skin cells and extract impurities while simultaneously infusing the skin with customizable cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. By removing the old, damaged layers of skin, fresher, brighter, and healthier skin is revealed. Our team of medical professionals at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology in San Francisco will work with you to determine which microdermabrasion treatment will best address your skin’s needs.
"I'm about to have another birthday. Sigh. Last year, right before my birthday, I asked a good friend of mine (who is a few years older but looks a few years younger) how she keeps her skin looking so young. She slipped me Dr. W's number and I made an appt. I have been seeing Dr. W. for over a year now and have been nothing but very pleased with every encounter I've had with her and her staff. I have stayed away from the more serious procedures, but have had a series of facials, an IPL and have been put on Retin-A to help build collagen and keep my skin looking fresh and young. Dr. W. and her staff all have an excellent bedside manner and a great eye for aesthetics. Five Stars for Dr. W. and her ladies!"- M.W. / Yelp / Feb 10, 2010
"I love what Dr. Welsh and Dr. Hui have done to my skin. They helped me find confidence and happiness again. I have been doing treatments for about two years including injections, ulthera, clear and brilliant and hydra facials. Never disappointed!!! I also see Mary - she is the best with treatments and helpful advice!! Strongly recommend."- L.H. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2015
The HydraFacial and SilkPeel microdermabrasion treatments are suitable for all skin types - even sensitive skin. However, microdermabrasion is particularly beneficial for patients with:

- Uneven texture and tone
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Hyperpigmentation spots
- Mild acne scars
What to Expect
A licensed esthetician or registered nurse will treat your skin with the revolutionary technology of Vortex cleansing, exfoliating, extraction, and fusion in one quick and easy appointment.
Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation – Dead skin cells are removed to reveal the healthy skin underneath.
Step 2: Acid Peel – This gentle peel will help loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation.
Step 3: Extractions – Painless and automated extractions use vacuum suctioning to draw out skin impurities.
Step 4: Hydration – Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are then Vortex-Fused into the skin to nourish and protect the treated area.
Our microdermabrasion treatments are quick and painless. Treatments usually take about a half hour and you may put on makeup and return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment. Ideal as a pre-event treatment, your skin is immediately softer and glowing with no downtime!
After the microdermabrasion session, the patient should avoid unprotected sun exposure.There is no downtime and you may resume your normal activities immediately. After one treatment you may notice more hydrated, radiant, and even-toned skin. However, monthly treatments are recommended to address fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and oily or congested skin. Regular microdermabrasion treatments help maintain your results, keeping your skin bright and youthful looking. Microdermabrasion can also be combined with other noninvasive treatments such as injectables and laser treatments for even greater improvements.
