What is 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.

Is Microdermabrasion Right For Me?

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.

What are the Benefits of Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion?

There are many benefits to ultrasonic microdermabrasion, which is why it has become such a popular treatment for our patients in Boston, MA. Some of the main advantages include:

  • Improve skin texture and appearance: By removing dead and damaged cells, ultrasonic microdermabrasion reveals smoother, softer, and brighter skin.
  • Gentle exfoliation: Ultrasonic technology allows for gentle and precise exfoliation without causing any irritation.
  • Safe for sensitive skin: Since there are no crystals or chemicals involved, this treatment is safe for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
  • Effective deep cleaning: The water used in ultrasonic microdermabrasion flushes out impurities and deeply cleans pores, resulting in healthier-looking skin.
  • Boost the effectiveness of other treatments: Ultrasonic microdermabrasion can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance your results.

How Does Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion Work?

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.

What Can I Expect After Ultrasonic Micro Dermabrasion?

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.
