Microdermabrasion at Hospital Clinica Biblica – best choice in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Medical Tourism Dermatology Microdermabrasion


General description
Microdermabrasion, a type of dermabrasion, is one of the facial procedures we offer.  It is a quick exfoliation therapy to remove dead cells from the skin’s superficial layer.  

Microdermabrasion will leave your skin looking younger and healthy. This type of treatment is a good alternative for your finances, since you will not have to spend a lot of money on more invasive and expensive treatments.

The aging of the skin affects younger people too, so there is no specific age group that can benefit from microdermabrasion. This technique is used to prevent health problems in younger people as well as to improve the appearance of older ones.

Technical description
Procedure – Microdermabrasion is a procedure to project aluminum micro crystals in the skin’s superficial layer. These particles gently remove skin layers from the very beginning.  

Compared with treatments like chemical peeling, this technique offers more visible results. The combination of exfoliation, soft suction and compression, stimulate new cells at the base of the skin. Through this process, cells are rejuvenated and circulation increases. The result is a fresh and healthy looking skin with more elasticity and texture.

Hospitalization – Microdermabrasion is an ambulatory procedure.

Time – Time required for each treatment is:

  • Face: 20 minutes.
  • Neck and face: 30 minutes.
  • Neck and upper breast area: 40 minutes.



Total cost will vary according to individual needs.
