Why the price differences with Fraxel vs Restore?
Doctor Answers 2
Fraxel and Price
The price of the laser is both dependent on the type of procedure and the skill and experience of the physician. Too many spas offer "bargains" from untrained technicians or touting to use "Fraxel" and finding out afterwards it was not that laser. You are paying for both the technology and moreover the skill of the physician and qualifications. Best, Dr. Green
Risks, passes and experience
Hence you are paying for a result, not a treatment. Board Certified Specialist generally charge higher, due to the risk/ benefit ratio and the parameters they push, compared to a Doctor who buys a Fraxel machine and decides to follow protocols.
Laser companies always factor the experience of the doctor (least experience) to deliver outcomes with more treatments. Good specialist always push this envelope to deliver better outcomes with less treatments.
