I'm getting a microdermabrasian today. It is a 10-15 minute procedure. How much should I tip? I know you typically leave a 20% tip however this is only 10-15 minutes. The price for it is $55. It just seems like $11 in cash is a bit much for something that takes less than 15 minutes.

Are you having it done at a dermatologist's office, or at a spa?

Neither. It's basically a little hair salon where the woman rents out the back room.

Personally, I'd still tip 20%

What a rude thing to say. The OP said nothing about having facial hair.

Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.

I would check out the credentials of someone "working out of a back room". My wife does that work as a RN under the supervision of a Doctor trained in plastic surgery. And they don't accept tips.

I agree 100%. I wouldn't be trusting any "woman in the back room of a salon" to do something like a microdermabrasion. Where did she get her education in this? Online? Don't ever go cheap for plastic surgery or any cosmetic procedures.


Remember the ladies who went to a woman at a hotel for butt enhancement? Turned out this woman was using industrial grade silicone and one of her customers died, another was severely deformed after the procedure. Vanity can be deadly as these women found out.


But I'm sure we will not dissuade you. Good luck and hopefully you won't wind up with any complications.

She rents a room in a hair salon. This is pretty common in my city. Her credentials were hanging up in her room.
