Is the correct code for microdermabrasion 15780 or some other code?
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.
