HydraFacial vs. microdermabrasion: what’s the difference?

HydraFacial, microdermabrasion

At Macias Dermatology, we pride ourselves in offering Fresno and Central Valley patients the very best in non-invasive skincare. With this in mind, we recently added the HydraFacial to our treatment roster.


Why did we choose HydraFacial MD®?

This leading cosmetic treatment takes a multi-step approach to enhance skin health. It’s not simply a fancy word for microdermabrasion—it also activates cell renewal using alpha-hydroxy acids and penetrates premium skincare ingredients to maintain healthy and rejuvenated skin. The process includes:

  • A two-step exfoliation process using a blend of alpha-hydroxy acids, algae and yeast.
  • An extraction phase that uses a patented suction device combined with beta-hydroxy acid and antibacterial ingredients to remove skin impurities.
  • The infusion of a serum cocktail of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to protect, regenerate and hydrate the skin.
  • The personalized recommendation of at-home products to maintain your treatment results.

Patients are loving the skin perfecting results they can achieve without the peeling and downtime that can arise from laser treatments or chemical peels. While one treatment yields noticeable improvements that last for 5-7 days, a monthly treatment is recommended to enjoy more lasting benefits.
