Why Choose Tijuana for Microdermabrasion?

While it is not worth traveling from most places to Tijuana for microdermabrasion most places (as it wouldn't be cost-effective), if you're based near the US-Mexico border or planning a trip to Tijuana anyway (perhaps for other medical reasons or just a vacation), undergoing this quick treatment could be a viable option. Our partner clinics here offer a range of non-invasive cosmetic procedures, including microdermabrasion, costing at least 50% less than in the US.

Tijuana has always embraced visitors from across the border who have been heading here for years seeking bargains–and medical, dental, beauty, health and wellness tourism is an extension of Tijuana’s ability to offer reliable, affordable services and products.

More and more people are taking advantage of lower prices in developing nations: what was once looked upon with trepidation and dismay has become de rigeur. Medical tourism is a 21st-century business, and most doctors and clinics involved in providing services to international patients are keen to deliver the best services–from contemporary facilities, the expertise of staff, proven hygiene and safety methods and a commitment to customer care that ensures loyalty from their clients.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

As a patient traveling from abroad, it is your job to make sure you choose a clinic and doctor who is reliable, and who you trust.

Medical Departures makes this process easier by pre-checking our doctors and clinics. We carry out onsite visits, taking photos and virtual clinic tours which we publish on our website with verified doctor qualifications, professional memberships and authenticated patient testimonials. If we find anything not up to standard, we don’t list the clinic/doctor on our site.

What Does the Procedure for Microdermabrasion Involve?

Microdermabrasion is used to exfoliate the skin. There are two methods:

  • Crystal microdermabrasion blasts micro-crystals onto the surface of the skin. This lifts and removes dead skin cells which are then sucked away with a handpiece.
  • Diamond-tip microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped handpiece to exfoliate the skin. The handpiece is moved by the operator over the skin and dead skin cells sucked up afterward.

What Is the Recovery Time for Microdermabrasion?

After the treatment, you should have a little redness, and maybe some slight swelling, but you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. You will need to protect your skin with a moisturizer containing a high SPF, and you will be able to put some makeup on if you want to hide the redness.

What Is the Cost of Microdermabrasion in Tijuana Compared to the United States and Canada?

The cost of microdermabrasion in Tijuana is around 50% less than it is in the United States. See some of the latest prices at Hospital Bajanor, an MD-verified clinic in Tijuana that offers microdermabrasion.
