A wide range of skin rejuvenation procedures are available today in cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical treatments. These procedures are usually considered elective, which means the insurance coverage will not be available. Therefore, the dollar amount becomes a critical starting point for many patients seeking these treatments. SilkPeel is a completely non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment option.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain all about SilkPeel, including its estimated costs. The provider’s first goal should be to help the patient make a well-considered and well-informed decision. Board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery provide SilkPeel to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding communities.
Comparing Costs with Other Procedures
SilkPeel can prove to be more cost-effective when compared to other plastic surgery and non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures. A surgery will be almost always more expensive than SilkPeel treatment because it mostly involves costs of anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, operating room costs and various pre- and post-op expenses.
Even non-surgical skin enhancement treatments involving lasers, radio frequency, ultrasound or other techniques may be costlier than SilkPeel. Although dollar figure comparisons are important while making a choice, but the decision should not be based solely on the basis of the sticker price. The patient should evaluate the pros and cons of different treatments and discuss with the treatment provider to arrive at the right choice for their unique needs.
Factors Affecting the Cost
SilkPeel skin rejuevenation costs may slightly differ between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice in some cases. Practice location is an important factor because the average livings costs will vary from one place to another. Prime metropolitan areas will typically have a higher cost of living than a small town in an interior region. This will influence the average cost of most types of products and services, including cosmetic procedures.
The standards of care adopted at a particular practice, the qualifications and training of the treatment provider, and the kind of personalized care, attention and amenities provided at the practice can make a difference to the costs. In any case, the quality and reliability of the practice should ideally be the key decision making factor for a patient in order to achieve most satisfying results.
Extent of Treatment
SilkPeel treatment can be used in any area from the body from head to toe. If the treatment is limited only to the face and neck, the overall treatment cost may be lower than in a situation where extensive treatment in multiple areas is required. On average, a patient may need to undergo a series of four to six treatment sessions of SilkPeel to achieve optimal outcomes.
The treatment provider may charge on a per treatment basis. In case the patient purchases the full treatment program, there could be some monetary savings for going down this route. In exceptional situations, such as treatment of a moderate to severe acne condition with SilkPeel, the patient may be able to receive reimbursement of costs from the insurer. Experienced cosmetic surgeons at the ACPS receive patients from Houston, Texas, TX, and nearby areas for SilkPeel.
