How Much Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
Doctor Answers 26
Cost of laser skin resurfacing varies...
Laser Skin Resurfacing Price $500 to $5000
Depending on the modality and the areas to be lasered, the cost will be $500 - $5000 per treatment. I would not purchase a package as you generally want an experienced laser specialist to utilize different modalities depending on how you are responding to treatment and if there are any changes to your lifestyle.
Laser and facial aging
Our office charges 2,500 $ for one treatment and packages reduce the price. See the link below for all of our pricing. We feel it is best to be straightforward from the beginning.
That is a pretty standard price for an ablative laser. If you combine it with fat transfer (my favorite combo) the price is significantly decreased.
Hope this helps. The laser can do wonders!
Best of luck,

Laser Skin Resurfacing Pricing
Being that Laser Skin Resurfacing shouldn't be considered cookie cutter medicine, we tailor the pricing and package to meet the needs of each individual patient.
Although having a full face done is recommended, in certain cases not everyone needs the whole face done, for example, some may have great cheeks and forehead and may only want to focus on the eyes and mouth or another patient may only need pigment depth laser settings on the whole face but small touches in certain areas on a deeper setting to spot treat problem areas, so pricing can be very individual and a consultation can provide exact pricing
Define what treatments you want first
There are so many treatments on the market you are probably better off first defining what you want. Look into the mirror and decide what issues are most important to you and then find a few honest doctors to get some opinions as to how to best address these problems. Then get prices and compare.
Laser Resurfacing - Demystified!
The wide variety of lasers and energy based devices on the market is very confusing to most consumers!
The tendency is for every brand of laser (and physician that owns that laser) to claim that their device is superior, offers better results, with less downtime.
In reality, there are a few broad categories of lasers, and most treatments within each category are fairly similar. What matters is the skill (and safety) of the laser operator, and their ability to work with the patient.
In general, there are lasers that treat vascular and pigmented lesions (PDL/vBeam, KTP, ND:YAG). IPL (intense pulsed light) is a non-laser treatment that works similarly and sometimes better than vascular lasers for these types of problems.
There are then non-ablative, and ablative lasers (Erbium:YAG, Erbium:Glass, CO2, ND:YAG, ER:YSSG). Most lasers are now fractional (think aerating the lawn, not mowing the grass) meaning that they poke thousands of tiny holes into the skin, and surrounding skin then helps speed healing. Non-ablative means that the treatment coagulates the skin, causing gentle resurfacing with multiple treatments. Ablative means that the microcolumns of skin are vaporized, which also means that there is increased healing and social downtime (oozing and crusting of skin for 3-5 days) but also more dramatic results.
IPL treatments may range from 200-300 dollars in our area, while each nonablative treatment may range from 400-500 dollars and an ablative treatment may range from 1000-1500 dollars. Often, treatments are combined to improve overall results.
Cost of laser treatments
More specifics about the location, treatment area size, and type of proposed laser treatment would be helpful in order to give a more accurate answer. We charge $75- $100 for small spot treatments if pigment is a concern. Hybrid laser treatments such as Halo run about $500 to $750. Fractional laser performed under topical anesthesia cost varies greatly, depending on the provider. In a spa setting, this may start at $500 for the face, while in a dermatologist or plastic surgeon's office, the cost may be two or three times that. Full ablative laser resurfacing, such as erbium or CO2, is usually performed under general anesthesia and does usually run about $5000 to $7500 for full face and neck, depending upon your geographic region.
