How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?
The average cost of laser skin resurfacing is $2,509 for ablative and $1,445 for non-ablative, according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is only part of the total price – it does not include other related expenses. Please consult with your plastic surgeon's office to determine your final fee.
Laser skin resurfacing prices will be based on the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the procedure, the type of procedure used, the time and effort the treatment requires, as well as geographic office location.
Most health insurance plans do not cover cosmetic surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
Laser skin resurfacing costs may include:
- Surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for medication
Be sure to ask your surgeon about all costs involved in your procedure.
Your satisfaction involves more than a fee.
When choosing a plastic surgeon for laser skin resurfacing, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the procedure.
