Over the years, our skin takes a beating from the sun, pollution, and other environmental irritants we’re exposed to on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion is a simple, noninvasive cosmetic treatment, after which you can resume daily activities immediately. The procedure helps to gently exfoliate surface layers of skin, leaving you with brighter, smoother skin in less than an hour.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of this painless procedure was $131 in 2018. At Derma-Tech Medical Spa a Microdermabrasion is currently $125. Our treatment is administered by one of our highly skilled specialists, each of whom has no less than ten years experience in the aesthetics field.
What Factors Go Into the Cost?
The complete cost of microdermabrasion can vary based on several factors, the most important of which are the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the procedure.
Other contributing factors include:
Type of procedure performed
The type of equipment used
Number of treatments
The geographic region of office
The total cost of Microdermabrasion can range from $75-$200, which is significantly less expensive than costs for other facial rejuvenation procedures. Since microdermabrasion is considered cosmetic, it is not usually covered by insurance.
What Can Microdermabrasion Address?
Microdermabrasion helps reveal a smoother texture of your face by gently removing the outer dull layer of skin cells. This no-downtime procedure is considered safe for most skin types and tones.
It may aid in the treatment of some of the following skin conditions:
Mild to moderate acne
Flaking, rough skin
Uneven skin tone and texture
Very fine lines
You may be encouraged to use a special moisturizer to enhance and prolong your results.
The results of microdermabrasion are noticeable immediately. Your skin may be sensitive to the sun for a few weeks and should be protected with sunscreen. Keeping your skin hydrated is very important.
Why Do I Need Multiple Treatments?
If you want your skin looking its best for a special event or are simply treating yourself to a spa day, one session may be all you need. While you can expect to see immediate improvements after a single treatment, lasting results will require a series of sessions.
Patients with specific skin concerns will experience temporary benefits until their facial skin regenerates (typically every month). Pore blockages and blackheads are reduced with regular treatments, as results from microdermabrasion are cumulative.
Your treatment and maintenance schedules depend on the severity of your skin damage and your expectations. Most patients start with two treatments each month before reducing to one maintenance treatment per month. The more you use microdermabrasion, the more benefits you can enjoy.

My first time for microdermabrasion, fillers and botox. Tina was a delight, she did the microdermabrasion. She explained every step and was pleasant and informative. Trish did my fillers and botox the next day. I was nervous when I went for my consult with her. She put me at ease right away. She helped me decide by giving me details and educating me on the different fillers. Never once did I feel pressured or uncomfortable. This is the first place I went. This is the only place i will go. Love it!!!
