Laser skin resurfacing is a laser treatment that can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions or concerns including pigmentation, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, skin texture, and sunspots. This resurfacing treatment also promotes skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.
One of the best ways to get an estimate for laser resurfacing is by contacting The Dr Lanzer Clinic. While we do not like to post estimates online, because the treatment does have so many variables, patients can contact our clinic via telephone or the enquiry form. Of course, they can also take advantage of our free no-obligation appointment. During this appointment, Dr Lanzer can evaluate the patient and determine the most suitable treatment route and its estimated cost.
Laser resurfacing is a skin treatment that contains many variables; this goes from the size of the treatment area to the clinic you choose to have your treatment. Below, we have explained these
variables in a little more detail.
When you have laser resurfacing, the size of the treatment area can have a serious influence on the
cost. For example, if you have laser resurfacing on the full face or decolletage, it could cost you less
than if you have laser resurfacing on areas such as the abdomen.
The location where you have laser resurfacing will influence the cost as well. Prices for treatments
such as laser resurfacing can vary by surgeon and by the clinic. Naturally, it will also be subject to
the equipment your surgeon uses. You should also incorporate factors such as treatment facilities,
potential hospital fees, etc. Of course, not all treatments require a stay at the hospital. Some
surgeons also have their own facilities at their disposal.
The type of laser used for a laser resurfacing procedure can also impact the cost. Different types of lasers can be used for laser resurfacing, which can be ablative or non-ablative. This includes the
Erbium laser, co2 lasers and fractional lasers. Ablative lasers are considered more invasive as it
removes the superficial top layer of the skin (epidermis), while, non-ablative lasers are associated
with less downtime as it promotes collagen production using heat in the dermal layers of the skin
without harming the epidermis.
Cost can also vary by the type of problem you are trying to treat which may require more than one treatment, such as deep wrinkles, extreme sun damage, severe acne scarring or stretch marks.
Your follow-up appointment after laser resurfacing is included in the overall price of your treatment, so you do not have to pay extra for your follow-up appointment. During this appointment, Dr Lanzer will evaluate the treatment area and your progress. By doing so, he can check for any complications and provide quick treatment if required.
During your recovery time, you may be required to take medications to keep complications at bay. For example, if a patient regularly experiences an acne outbreak, Dr Lanzer may provide this patient with some medication to prevent such outbreaks. Since acne during the recovery process could cause complications and even influence the results, Dr Lanzer will provide these medications to prevent these side effects.
There are certain things patients can do at home to minimise healing time and enhance the healing process. One of the aftercare recommendations from The Dr Lanzer Clinic is implementing a good topical skincare routine. Not only does it enhance your results, but it also protects your skin against sun exposure, damage and natural signs of ageing for some time to come. To ensure you have the best one for your skin type, it always helps to get an evaluation by your dermatologist. If you have no such evaluation where products are concerned, be sure to speak to Dr Lanzer, as he is a licensed dermatologist as well as a cosmetic surgery.
