Microdermabrasion is one of the most affordable skin rejuvenation procedures available today, and you will see results immediately. Many patients ask how much does microdermabrasion cost? So we’ve put together some information to consider.
Cost of Microdermabrasion Varies by Type
There are many types of microdermabrasions, and they can vary in cost. Three common types of microdermabrasions include: crystal, diamond, and DermaSweep. Crystal microdermabrasion is considered the original microdermabrasion. It uses a wand to blast fine crystal particles over the face, which abrades the skin.
Simultaneously suction is applied to remove the dead skin cells and used crystals. The crystals can be made of many different compounds so you will want to ask your esthetician for that information. Many find that this type of microdermabrasion is a little messy; while there is a vaccum to remove the crystals after they are blasted on to the skin it doesn’t get all of them, so you’ll find them in your ears and hair following treatment. Since the crystals have to be replaced, this type can be more expensive than the others due to the cost involved with treatment.
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion uses a wand with a tip made from natural or synthetic diamond chips. This technique is particle-free but provides aestheticians with control and accuracy. It’s like using sand paper and suction to remove the dead skin cells.
DermaSweep, which is the technique we use at WIFH, is similar to diamond microdermabrasion but uses a gentler vacuum pump that is capped by one of several bristle-tipped heads of various coarseness. DermaSweep is a two part process. The bristle tip and suction removes the outer layer of dead skin and then a soft infusion tip is used to infuse customized serums back into the skin.
DermaSweep is a very therapeutic microdermabrasion, because the dead skin cells have been removed it allows these treatment serums to be quickly absorbed by the skin. The treatment serum used are based on what issues you are trying to address: acne, pigmentation, hydration, etc. The cost of a Microdermabrasion can range anywhere from $100 to $300 for one treatment, depending on type and provider. Often they are discounted if you purchase a series.
Often your aesthetician’s experience will dictate price as well. When you search for a microdermabrasion provider, you want to visit someone with experience, because as benign as microdermabrasion is, you can still have side effects.
For example, since the procedure uses suction, you could get red, hickey-like marks that could also look like bruises, and you could even have actual scratches and skin irritation. In extreme cases, if the tip of the microdermabrasion isn’t clean, you could even get an infection. However, we believe the benefits of microdermabrasion far outweigh the risk, as they are very unlikely. We have never seen these side effects at WIFH, because we have a staff of experienced aestheticians and maintain absolute cleanliness of all our equipment.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasions are great for: improving skin tone and texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, repairing sun damage, keeping acne at bay, oily skin, reducing pore size, reducing signs of aging, revitalizing dull skin, treating hyperpigmentation, lessening the appearance of surgical scars, and more. The results work best if you do microdermabrasion in a series, and often you will get a discount for purchasing a package rather than a single microdermabrasion.
DermaSweep at WIFH
We use DermaSweep at WIFH. DermaSweep is a two part treatment. The first step uses patented bristle technology along with suction to remove the outer layer of skin. Step two is the infusion of a treatment serum back into the skin leaving you with noticeably glowing skin. The vacuum action of DermaSweep leaves your skin smoother by stimulating blood flow, cleaning your pores, removing skin debris and encouraging collagen formation to firm and tone your skin.
WIFH prices for a DermaSweep are: $150 for a single treatment, $375 for a 3-treatment package, and $700 for a 6-treatment package. You can also choose add-ons with your microdermabrasions like peels, masks, etc. For best results, we recommend a series of 6 microdermabrasion procedures spaced at 10 to 14 day intervals.
