Laser skin resurfacing uses state-of-the-art technology to help patients address multiple issues, including scarring, wrinkles, creases and skin laxity so facial skin looks smoother, clearer and more youthful. Thanks to the range of laser types and treatment approaches available, including CO2 laser resurfacing and fractional laser treatments, laser resurfacing can be an ideal option for both men and women who want to turn back the clock on their skin and their appearance.
Laser Resurfacing Cost Factors
If you’re considering laser resurfacing, there are lots of factors to consider, and for most patients, one of the first questions they ask is, “How much will laser resurfacing cost?” The fact is, laser resurfacing costs can vary significantly from patient to patient depending on the type of treatment, the extent of the treatment and other factors. For instance, ablative resurfacing – procedures that remove the uppermost layers of skin to reveal “new” skin underneath – can be much more expensive than non-ablative procedures that deliver the laser energy through the skin to reach the deeper layers without removing skin.
Non-ablative treatments can be a great solution for reducing wrinkles and tightening skin, but they may not be the ideal choice for patients with more substantial damage. In that case, while the lower cost of a non-ablative procedure may seem tempting, chances are it’s not going to provide the best results.
Making Treatment Affordable
According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the cost of laser wrinkle reduction treatments range from about $1,100 to around $3,000, depending on the type of procedure being performed and the extent of the treatment itself.
