Microdermabrasion

Question:
Is the correct code for microdermabrasion 15780 or some other code?

Answer:
CPT code 15780 (Dermabrasion; total face) is for total face dermabrasion using a tool that penetrates into the dermis.  Microdermabrasion only involves the epidermis, so CPT code 15783 (Dermabrasion; superficial, any site) is the correct code to report for microdermabrasion.
