  Typical costs:
  • Expect to pay between $75 and $100 per microdermabrasion treatment.. A patient might need between five and 12 treatments, spaced two to three weeks apartand periodic maintenance treatments. Microdermabrasion can be performed by a plastic surgeon as well as by a registered nurse or aesthetician; surgeons will charge more for the procedure, but they also bring more expertise.

What should be included:
  • During a microdermabrasion treatment, which usually takes 30 minutes to an hour, the practitioner uses a hand-held device that emits crystals, which remove the top layer of skin. The procedure can give the skin a healthy glow, boost collagen production, reduce the appearance of large pores, diminish acne scars and reduce early signs of aging, such as fine wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. A benefit to the procedure is that there is no recovery time and virtually no side effects, except for slight redness.
Additional costs:
  • A light chemical peel might be recommended in combination with the microdermabrasion treatment, to give better results. Also, some practitioners will recommend an individualized skin care program, which might require you to buy products such as cleansers, masques and moisturizers. These can cost up to $200.
Discounts:
  • Many practitioners offer coupons or package deals on microdermabrasion treatments or combinations of skin treatments.
Shopping for microdermabrasion:
  • Tip: Keep in mind that microdermabrasion will provide best results for patients with excellent skin tone, and it might not be appropriate of advanced age, those with severe acne scars or patients with skin disorders such as rosacea.
  • Tip: Though you have a range of choices when it comes to practitioners, a board-certified dermatologic surgeon is probably your best option. These doctors will be able to assess your skin problems and determine whether microdermabrasion is the correct treatment. You can also find a board certified physician by visiting the American Academy of Dermatology[1] or the American Society of Plastic Surgeons[2] .

Microdermabrasion
Amount: $75.00 per treatment

Clinic or Hospital: Quintana's Spa
Usually, the cost of an individual microdermabrasion is $75, but they were running an amazing sale for the month of October for a set of 10. I purchased a set of 10 for $400+tax. ($438) I am 30 yrs old, African American and a severe cystic acne sufferer with scarring. I am currently in between my second treatment. Last week my face broke out just like she said, but after receiving my second treatment and utilizing a sulfur mask afterwards, I can see that I am on the road to recovery and a healthier appearance. The staff are amazing and very polite. I can not wait to see a true change within the next few treatments.
