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.
