How Much Does Fraxel Skin Resurfacing Treatment Cost?

Fraxel before and after photosFraxel laser skin rejuvenation treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years with FDA clearances and advanced technologies with highly effective results. Dr. V provides a range of Fraxel anti-aging treatments to her patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding areas.

Dr. V will discuss various aspects of the treatment during the initial consultation, including the estimated costs of the procedure. Patients can compare the costs of Fraxel laser treatment with alternative procedures and make informed choices as per their aesthetic needs.

Cost Comparison with Surgery

Facial skin rejuvenation surgical procedures such as facelift can be significantly more expensive compared to a Fraxel laser treatment. In the long run, the surgical treatment is likely to be more sustainable and cost-effective, but every patient may not be ready to spend a substantial amount on an elective procedure. Fraxel treatments do not involve general anesthesia or IV sedation, which is typically a part of a cosmetic surgery procedure.

Surgery may involve higher costs in terms of the plastic surgeon’s fee and operating room charges or overnight stay at the hospital. Additional expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs, surgical garments, and other related expenses may also be involved. All these expenses get avoided in a non-surgical procedure such as Fraxel skin rejuvenation.

Location of the Practice

The cost of Fraxel treatment may vary from one practice to another, and also from one patient to another. The cost of living index will differ from place to place, which can influence the average cost of various goods and services, including aesthetic treatments.

For instance, the cost of Fraxel treatment in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas may not be the same as the cost in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Nature and Extent of Treatment

Fraxel laser skin treatment may involve ablative approach or non-ablative approach. Each approach will involve a different type of Fraxel treatment, varying in terms of intensity, treatable area to be covered, and the number of treatments needed. Fraxel Repair is the most aggressive treatment, which can help achieve significant improvement for severely damaged skin. Fraxel Re:store is a relatively less aggressive treatment to improve mild to moderately damaged skin.

The cost of each treatment type will vary. The number of treatments required may usually vary between three and six. The cost will be calculated on a per treatment basis, or on a package rate, depending on the situation. The treatment may involve only a part of the face, or may include full face and neck or other areas. The overall cost of treatment will be determined after taking into account all these factors.

Average Cost

The average cost of a single Fraxel Re:store treatment for the face may be in the range of $1,500. A total number of four treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results. Aggressive treatments with Fraxel Re:pair may cost a little more. When the treatment is sought as a part of a package, the total cost may be reduced.

Fraxel before and after photoFraxel laser technology has revolutionized the field of non-surgical anti-aging solutions.

Proven Laser Technology

Fraxel is one of the most popular, complete, and tremendous laser technologies to make the skin smoother and reduce the signs of aging without invasive surgery. The procedure is widely accepted by anti-aging experts as well as patients in more than a 100 countries around the world. An estimated one million Fraxel procedures have been performed until date, and the safety record has been exemplary.

The technology is designed to reverse the visible effects of aging, while avoiding the potential risks and side effects as well as prolonged recovery period that may accompany a surgical procedure. Dr. V is an experienced provider of Fraxel laser treatment. She will evaluate the patient’s unique genetic make-up and personal history and how it contributes to the appearance of the skin. She will then develop a customized treatment plan to match with the patient’s aesthetic needs and lifestyle.

Types of Fraxel Laser

Fraxel laser technology can be broadly classified into ablative and non-ablative techniques. The ablative technique is more aggressive and designed to achieve more dramatic outcomes. This technique disrupts the entire skin column, including the top layer of the skin. Non-ablative Fraxel technique involves a milder treatment approach. It will either spare the top layer of the skin column, or spare the deeper dermis, and not impact as deeply as the ablative treatment.

The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts is equipped to provide three of the major Fraxel treatments, including Fraxel Re:pair, Fraxel Re:store and DUAL. All of these treatment options are safe and keep the patient comfortable during treatment. Fraxel technology avoids the risks and side effects typically associated with laser procedures. The downtime is reduced, and results are more effective compared to many other non-surgical treatments.

Versatility of the Fraxel treatments at Dr. V’s practice ensures that each patient can receive the most appropriate treatment suited to their skin condition.
