Many people seek skin rejuvenation procedures after the onset of signs of aging and sun damage. For those who want to avoid plastic surgery options, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing procedure offers a safe, proven and effective non-surgical alternative. During the initial consultation, the laser specialist will discuss various aspects of the treatment, including its estimated costs.
The first goal of the treatment provider should be to help the patient make a well-considered decision about the procedure. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide Fraxel fractional laser treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other communities across the horizon.
The sticker price of Fraxel laser skin resurfacing will usually turn out to be lower than a plastic surgery skin tightening procedure. Surgical procedures typically involve general anesthesia and will have to be performed at a surgical center. This will add the fee of the anesthesiologist as well as the charges of the surgical center.
In case of Fraxel fractional laser treatment, the procedure will avoid both of these financial stipulations because it can be performed in-office without any need for general anesthesia. Fraxel laser skin resurfacing will involve minimal downtime, which can have additional cost saving implications for a working person.
The monetary amount of Fraxel fractional laser treatments can vary from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice in some cases. Some of the factors that will go into determining the actual cost include:
Location of the Practice
The cost of living index varies from one city to another, which has an impact on the average costs of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic procedures such as Fraxel laser. Therefore, patients should recognize the cost differences they may note in different regions, which could be due to variations in real estate costs, median household incomes, and local taxes.
Treatment Provider’s Expertise
If the Fraxel fractional laser skin resurfacing procedure is performed by a fully trained and experienced laser professional, who works under the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon, it is worth choosing such a provider instead of someone who lacks experience or expertise but offers a low price.
Facilities and Personalized Care
A practice that offers state of the art laser technology and equipment as well as a range of facilities to ensure the patient’s complete comfort should be preferred. The dedication of the support staff and the personalized care and attention that a patient receives at a practice will also make a difference to the final outcome. Therefore, patients should look at the costs in view of the kind of facilities and standards of care they may receive.
Extent of Treatment
Some patients may require only limited laser treatment in a small surface area, involving two to three treatment sessions, while some others may require four to six treatment sessions of longer duration due to larger surface area. The sticker price in each case will vary.
