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.

Monique could not have been lovelier. It was my first hydrofacial with her, and her manner was professional and so helpful. Trying a few new products per her recommendation, as well. Thank you!!!!

Anyone who's struggling with acne problem, please come to see Dr. Austin! My skin was so much better after the first month visiting here, and now I can walk outside with my bare skin and feel confident about it (of cause I'll still need my eyebrows). Dr. Austin was very patient at explaining the two types of acne I had and recommended a new skincare regiment and prescription pills targeting at those different problems. I never thought washing my face with just water in the morning can have such a big improvement to my skin. If you come to see Dr. Austin, I'm sure she'll recommend even more skincare tips and treatments that will help to improve your skin! Beside Dr. Austin, all the people working here are so nice to chat with. Mary who did my Laser Genesis, Claire who did my Hydro Facial. They are all so professional at doing those treatments and taking care of the skin. Thanks to all of them, my skin has improved so much!

I strongly recommend this practice. Dr. Welsh, Dr. Austin, and Dr. He are so brilliant and help you take back control of your skin. I've been with this practice for 4+ years. In addition to the results they achieved for my skin, it's the staff and the providers who keep me coming back. I appreciate the level of professionalism and consideration BACD has for all of their clients. The doctors are so smart and truly take time to understand your problem, and recommend the right treatment to deliver the fastest possible solution. I struggled with acne my entire life; in my first consultation with Dr. Austin she recommended a daily topical (tretanoin) and specific treatments (e.g Hydrafacial and Laser to break up  redness!). Ever since then my skin improved drastically. I hardly recognize myself in the mirror today. It's truly incredible how small changes can deliver drastic results. Recently, I met their newest physician Dr. Steven He. He is LOVELY and a true dermatology prodigy! All MDs at this practice will provide you with the information you need to treat your skin. Dr. He, in particular, is always willing to answer questions and has a magical way of breaking down the science of skincare in a way that is easy to understand. He is also very friendly and cute -- LOL! Thank you Dr. Welsh, Dr. Austin and Dr. He for all of your support over the past few years. I am so fortunate to be a client at your clinic.
