Why choose Tijuana for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion isn’t a cosmetic treatment you would travel specifically to Tijuana for if you were a medical tourist, unless you lived near to the US-Mexico border, as it just wouldn’t be cost-effective. However, for residents in the Southern United States where travel to Tijuana is convenient, it is certainly worth considering. The treatment is quick, has little downtime – and costs around 50% less than it does in the US.

The recession may technically be over, but many of us are still looking at ways to save money. Tijuana has always embraced visitors from across the Border who have traveled here for years looking for a bargain – and medical, dental, beauty, health and wellness tourism is an extension of Tijuana’s ability to offer services and products that are popular.

More and more people are taking advantage of cheaper prices in developing nations, and what was once looked upon with trepidation and dismay, is becoming much more acceptable. 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, expertise of staff, proven hygiene and safety methods and a commitment to customer care that ensures loyalty from their clients.

We are not saying that every clinic and doctor operates on this business, but there are good many that do. 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 easier by pre-checking our doctors and clinics. We do onsite visits, taking photos and virtual clinic tours which we publish on our website with verified doctor qualifications, professional memberships and patient testimonials. Quite simply, if we find anything not up to standard, we don’t list the clinic/doctor on our site.

What is the procedure for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion exfoliates 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 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 afterwards.

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 (which you should do anyway), 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.
