About Microdermabrasion

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 Diamond Glow systems. Traditional 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 hand piece 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 will work with you to determine which microdermabrasion treatment will best address your skin’s needs.

Best Candidates

The HydraFacial and Diamond Glow microdermabrasion treatments are suitable for all skin types - even sensitive skin. However, microdermabrasion is particularly beneficial for patients with:

  • Rough, dry patches of skin
  • Uneven texture and tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyper pigmentation 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! 

Other Considerations

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.
