Cost of Microdermabrasion
The cost of microdermabrasion treatment can vary substantially depending on a number of different factors including:
- The type skin issue that is being treated
- Type of procedure used
- Geographic location where the treatment is being performed
- Skills, training, and experience of the doctor performing the treatment
- Fees associated with the facility
- Surface area being treated
- Number of sessions required for the treatment
- Cost of any associated prescription medications
Microdermabrasion treatments can range from $100 to $300 per session. Often, patients will need to have at least two sessions per month until the skin issue is resolved. Then, patients will return once each month for maintenance treatments. Talk with your doctor to learn more about all the potential costs involved with your microdermabrasion treatment plan.
The type of skin problem that is being treated as well as the type of procedure used for treatment can cause some variation in the overall cost. A skin problem that is spread over a larger surface area would be more costly to treat than a very small skin problem. Certain skin conditions may require more treatment session in order to see substantial results, ultimately affecting the overall cost of the procedure.
The geographic location where you have your microdermabrasion treatment performed can also affect the bottom line. Essentially, if you seek out microdermabrasion in a location where the procedure is in high demand, it will cost more than if you have the treatment performed in an area where there is less of a demand.
Your doctor’s skills, training, and experience can also affect the price of microdermabrasion. A doctor who has a lot of experience and training is able to charge more than doctors who are less experienced. But it is usually desirable to seek out highly qualified professionals for cosmetic treatments because the results inevitably end up being of a higher quality.
The fees associated with most facilities will range from $500 to $1500.
Most insurance companies will not cover elective medical procedures like microdermabrasion because they are not “medically necessary”.
Most doctors can offer patients palatable financing options to make their microdermabrasion treatments more affordable. There are a variety of different financing options available to patients seeking cosmetic procedures. Talk with your doctor to learn more about financing that can allow you to pay small monthly sums instead of paying for the entire balance up front.
