Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment option to smoothen and brighten the skin tone. The main advantages of this procedure are that it is proven to be effective, and is also low in cost as compared to other cosmetic treatment alternatives. It is used to treat and cure many different skin disorders and complications, like acne, wrinkles, skin discoloration, stretch marks, and so on. It is also known as a 'power peel', and includes the skin surface being treated by a special machine which emits steam of crystals to tone the body smoothly. These steamed crystals contain many essential oxides, chlorides, and other elements required for a healthy, glowing skin.
Cost of Microdermabrasion
The average costs depend on several factors, such as where the treatment is carried out, which facility the treatment is carried out in, what is the skin condition before the actual treatment, which part of the body needs to be treated, and the number of visits and sessions you need to go through.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that can also be carried out at home using a DIY kit. This is the most inexpensive treatment option. A DIY kit generally comprises a rotating hand-held machine, micro-crystal skin creams, foams, and other necessary items for home treatment. The price of these kits may range from USD 20 to even USD 200, depending on the items included. You may typically need six kits for the treatment. If we consider one kit to be USD 50, then the overall cost may go up to USD 300.
At Salons or Spas
If you do not want to do the treatment at home, you have the option (also inexpensive) of getting the treatment done in a reputed spa or beauty salon. Salons or spas have specialized devices and equipment that clean and smoothen the skin, and also increase healthy tissue generation. The cost of a single session ranges between USD 75 to USD 200.
However, you may need to pay frequent visits and undergo several sessions for the complete procedure, which increases the cost considerably. Complete treatment includes around 10 to 12 sessions. Spas and beauty salons normally have specialized treatments packages with a good discount to lower the aggregate cost.
At Professional Medical Facilities or Clinics
Undergoing microdermabrasion at a professional medical facility or clinic is by far the most expensive option. A single session in a professional medical setting can cost you approximately USD 100 to USD 300, which does not include consultation fees. Consultation fees may add an extra USD 150 to the total.
In a medical setting, the average cost typically comprises the fees of the cosmetic surgeon, dermatologist, RNs, and other personnel involved. The equipment used is also a notable determinant of the cost. The more advanced the equipment, the more the charges you will have to pay. The average overall cost for the treatment under medical supervision gets to somewhere around USD 1,600.
This was just a general explanation about the costs and prices of microdermabrasion. Before choosing a spa, salon, or any medical facility, it is recommended to find out what type of equipment they are using. You should also get all details about the basic prices and other additional costs of the procedure.
