In many cases, treatment with a laser is more cost-effective because the procedures are more precise and can yield better results. However, some insurance plans do not cover the use of a diode laser for certain procedures. In addition, if you receive a cosmetic treatment with a laser, the cost will be greater.
When deciding whether to choose to use a diode laser during treatment, it is important to weigh the increased comfort and decreased complication risk with the cost. For example, using a laser may reduce the amount of sedation you need, saving you money on anesthesia fees.
