The cost of your laser treatments will depend on a variety of factors, beginning with the very individualized particulars of your skin and its rosacea symptoms. A laser surgeon can advise you on the type, number, and cost of the treatments your skin will require. Laser treatment will generally cost between $300 and $500 for a single session, multiple sessions are usually required.
Rosacea treatment costs can range widely for the three main types of laser and other light therapies for rosacea. Cost of treatment can depend on your area of the country as well as your skin’s particular needs. Prices for prescription medicines, which are typically part of the treatment for rosacea, vary depending on the type of drug prescribed, how long it’s prescribed, and your particular insurance coverage.
Effective treatment and management of rosacea’s symptoms generally requires a combination of therapies. Laser treatment is highly effective at treating the facial redness and flushing associated with rosacea; however, such treatments are typically considered by insurance providers as cosmetic and therefore not a reimbursed expense.
The treatment of rosacea’s acne-like pimples (pustules) and bumps (papules) may involve the prescription of topical and oral medications. These are generally covered by insurance. Contact your insurance provider to discuss your particular coverage and its limitations.
