The cost of #IPL or #photorejuvenation

The cost of #IPL or #photorejuvenation varies from doctor to doctor and from one geographic area to another.

See the national average for physician fees per procedure.
These numbers only reflect the physician/surgeon fees last year and do not include fees for the surgical facility, anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, or other miscellaneous costs related to photorejuvenation.

Because photorejuvenation is elective, insurance usually does not cover these costs. However, occasionally, if the photorejuvenation is being performed to treat certain #skin conditions or improve certain types of scars, insurance coverage may be available. Your plastic surgeon's office will explain how you can find out from your insurance company if a particular procedure will be covered. Many surgeons offer patient financing plans to make the procedure more affordable.

Limitations and Risks

One of the reasons photorejuvenation is so popular is because it carries very few risks. Your specific risks will be discussed during your consultation.

All #surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Some of the potential complications of all surgeries are:

  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Hematoma or seroma (an accumulation of blood or fluid under the skin that may require removal)
  • Infection and bleeding
  • Changes in sensation
  • Scarring
  • Allergic reactions
  • Damage to underlying structures
  • Unsatisfactory results that may necessitate additional procedures

Other risks specific to #photorejuvenation are outlined below:

  • Most patients will experience slight burning after the procedure, and some will see light scabbing, blistering, or crusting. These issues are normal and will typically subside within a few days, but if they persist it's important that you get in touch with your surgeon.
  • Very rarely, patients will experience bruising, slight bleeding, or scarring, but these issues typically only arise if treatments are spaced too closely together, or after excessive use of #IPL technology.
  • Individuals who are living with the herpes simplex virus may find that IPL #treatments can induce an outbreak. Antiviral medication used to treat this condition can help reduce the chances of outbreaks prompted by #photorejuvenation.

You can help minimize certain risks by following the advice and instructions of your board-certified plastic surgeon, both before and after your treatment.
