About Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion
Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion provides a modern spin on a classic treatment, this treatment gives you thorough, consistent exfoliation with no irritation or inflammation. This procedure is particularly great for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin and for skin that is newer to professional exfoliation. Crystal and chemical free, it is the perfect alternative for those wanting gentle skin-resurfacing without irritation or inflammation. This treatment is perfect for sensitive skin and retinol users.
This non-invasive technique uses water that is applied to the skin with gauze and a spatula using ultrasonic technology (28,000 vibrations per second) is used to gently lift off superficial dead skin cells, giving you a light exfoliation. At the same time the water is flushed into the pores resulting in a deep cleaning. Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion can be done prior to any chemical peel treatment or dermaplaning. It’s a great way to boost the effectiveness of any treatment. Ultrasonic microdermabrasion is gentle enough to be done on a weekly basis, but in combination with other treatments, recommended maintenance is every 4-6 weeks.
When fine lines, scars, and rough spots build up on the surface of the skin, it can create a dull complexion. At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, Ultrasonic microdermabrasion treatments remove the dead and damaged skin cells from the upper layers of your complexion, revealing a younger appearance with even, clear skin that feels smooth and soft.
Our staff highly recommends the Pollogen GENEO+U - Smartouch Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion System for patients who want a fast, effective, and noninvasive treatment that addresses signs of aging and improves the health of your skin. Designed to even the tone and texture of your skin, dermabrasion refreshes your appearance without undergoing surgery.

"My experience at DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery was excellent from start to finish. I had revision work done on my nose - to correct some old problems that have bothered me since 1974, when I had my original rhinoplasty surgery. Surgeon, Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is the best of the best. She did amazing work on my nose, giving me the nose I've always wanted. She was able to lower the tip and make my nose smaller and more delicate looking. And not only is Dr. DeRosa a top notch surgeon, but she is a wonderful, kind, and caring person as well. I cannot say enough about Dr. DeRosa! She and her entire staff are beyond amazing!!"- D.D. / Google / Sep 22, 2023

Is Microdermabrasion Right For You?
For patients at any age who want clearer, healthier skin, we recommend Ultrasonic microdermabrasion treatments. Microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of small facial scars, fine lines, spots, and blotches on your face. Since it eliminates the outer damaged layers of skin, your skin will feel softer with a brighter, more even tone. The majority of patients also find that after a microdermabrasion treatment, skin care products absorb more quickly and perform better. If you have skin allergies, sensitive skin, or regular cold sores and fever blisters, dermabrasion might further irritate the skin. Also, to avoid the risk of infection, you should avoid dermabrasion if you currently have acne or other skin outbreaks. We can perform the treatment on the entire face or a small area, as well as the chest, hands, and neck. To enhance your results, patients can include another nonsurgical procedure, such as a chemical peel or injectable wrinkle treatment, for more dramatic improvements.
After your consultation, our staff will perform your treatment in one of our private rooms. Patients can relax while we cleanse and prep the skin for treatment. If needed, we can apply local anesthesia to numb the needed areas so you feel more relaxed during the procedure. Ultrasonic microdermabrasion is performed with a Pollogen GENEO+U handpiece that spins a rough surface against the skin. As the tool moves across your skin, it safely sloughs off the top layer. Following the treatment, patients can resume their normal activities.
Your Dermabrasion Treatment
Following the treatment, your skin will appear red, irritated, and swollen, like a light sunburn. As you heal over the next week, you can improve the symptoms with over-the-counter pain medications and creams. Additionally, you should minimize sun exposure and regularly apply UV protection to your skin because the new layer of skin is sensitive. Most patients have visibly clearer skin that is smoother to touch, and this will only get better as the skin heals. To extend your improvements, talk to us about how often you can schedule treatments.
Plan Your Procedure
Smooth Out Your Skin
Noninvasive dermabrasion treatments can reveal a healthier complexion by reducing spots, scars, lines, wrinkles, and early signs of damage. At your initial consultation with one of our aestheticians, you will receive a thorough explanation about the Pollogen GENEO+U - Smartouch Microdermabrasion System process. Plus, we can examine your complexion and develop the best treatment plan for you.
