Laser skin rejuvenation is an innovative non-surgical dermatology procedure that can help address facial and neck skin laxity as well as reduce other skin imperfections. The provider will explain various facets of the treatment to the patient during the initial consultation, including its approximate costs.
The patient should assess the costs and benefits judiciously, and compare laser skin rejuvenation to other cosmetic skin care procedures in order to arrive at a well-considered choice.
Sagacious board certified dermatologists Dr. Tri H. Nguyen and Dr. George Hughes III of Texas Surgical Dermatology provide laser skin rejuvenation to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations in this majestic part of the country.
Cost Comparison with Surgery
Laser skin rejuvenation is significantly more cost-effective in comparison to surgical procedures such as neck lift, facelift or other types of skin tightening surgery. The procedure does not require general anesthesia and the provider performs laser skin rejuvenation as an outpatient procedure. This avoids the additional costs of a surgical venue or anesthesia.
Laser skin procedures usually do not entail costs such as prescription medications, prior health exams, or post-treatment appointments that are commonly associated with surgery. Laser skin treatment also does not involve a prolonged downtime.
The patient can resume work quickly after receiving the treatment. This may translate into savings for some working individuals. Also, laser skin rejuvenation does not involve costs and risks associated with a revision procedure.
Laser skin rejuvenation treatment costs can differ slightly between two practices, and even between two patients at the same practice. The location of the practice will affect the sticker price. The cost of living in busy urban centers and major metropolitan cities is typically higher. This can lead to higher prices of goods and services (including cosmetic dermatology services) in these areas.
Other factors that may impact the monetary amount of the procedure are the quality standards of the practice, the expertise and skill of the treatment provider, and the level of individualized care and services at a specific practice. The amount surface area being treated will also impact the overall cost of the laser skin rejuvenation procedure.
The number of treatment areas and treatment sessions involved will affect the cost of the procedure as well. At times, the laser skin treatment will be combined with another non-surgical or minimally invasive procedure. The provider may be able to offer a discounted package rate in such cases.
Sometimes the dermatology practice may offer a rebate on the treatment during a specific promotional period. Patients can take advantage of such promotions by receiving the treatment during that period.
Insurance and Financing
Laser skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure. Other than a few particular instances where Laser Genesis can be used to address a health condition, medical insurance will not cover the price tag of the treatment.
Patients may consider various financing options such as professional medical care financing firms, bank loans, credit card payments, or private loans from friends and family. Dignified dermatologists Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Hughes receive patients from Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and other towns and cities in this section of The Lone State for laser skin rejuvenation.
