Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin rejuvenation has gained increasing popularity after it was cleared by the FDA. The favorable reviews from surgeons and patients regarding different laser skin rejuvenation procedures have also contributed to the wider acceptable of this technology.
Your laser skin care expert will explain the different aspects of skin resurfacing treatments, including estimated costs during the initial consultation. You should compare the costs of this treatment with others to determine the best possible treatment solution.
It is vital to understand that insurance doesn’t cover the costs of laser skin rejuvenation because it is an elective procedure. Khan Eyelid and Facial Aesthetics, led by oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Tanya Khan, provides laser skin resurfacing treatments to patients in Austin, Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Costs vs. Surgery
Laser skin resurfacing costs are significantly less as compared to cosmetic surgeries for skin tightening in the face and body. However, you should know that surgical procedures offer longer lasting results. Many patients are not comfortable with the idea of an invasive procedure and the accompanying risks, downtime, and discomfort.
You don’t require general anesthesia or IV sedation with laser treatments. The procedure can be comfortably performed in the treatment provider’s office as opposed to an operating room. Cosmetic surgeries are usually more expensive because of surgeon’s charges, anesthesiologist’s fee, and surgical venue charges. You may need to pay for post-surgery and overnight hospital stays as well.
Other costs related to surgeries include surgical accessories, prescription meds and medical tests. However, you can avoid most of these costs with laser skin resurfacing.
Practice Location Determines the Overall Cost
The cost of getting a laser skin resurfacing treatment can vary marginally between two patients getting the treatment at different or same practices. Socioeconomic climate of a city dictates the cost of several goods and services, including cosmetic treatments.
Nature and Extent of Treatment
Laser skin resurfacing treatment options can be ablative and non-ablative in nature. These are both laser procedures involving different techniques. The difference between the two approaches is in the treatment intensity, targeted areas, and the number of sessions required for obtaining the desired cosmetic results.
Deeper outcomes are offered by ablative laser techniques by being more aggressive. Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is less aggressive. The latter is better suited for treating mild to moderately damaged skin. The cost of different types of laser skin resurfacing treatments differs based on the number of sessions.
Laser skin resurfacing treatment providers can charge the entire cost in several easy installments or as a lumpsum amount. You can have the procedure performed on the entire face or a small part of it. Patients, on an average, don’t need more than 3 to 6 treatment sessions to achieve desired results from laser skin resurfacing.
Ablative laser treatments are more intensive in nature and tend to cost more as compared to non-ablative techniques. It is possible that you may receive a discount from the treatment provider if your laser therapy is performed in combination with other cosmetic procedures.
