All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.

PDL is used as a treatment for a variety of different conditions. However, PDL is mainly used to treat vascular conditions. The following are a few of the conditions treated by PDL: 

  • Port wine stains
  • Warts
  • Hemangiomas
  • Telangiectasias
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea

Depending on the laser used, it can take up to six months to see results from your laser resurfacing treatment. Stimulating your skin to produce more collagen can be a long process. However, when you schedule your appointments regularly, your results could appear quicker.  

A dermoscopy is used to examine and evaluate he subsurface of the skin. Dermoscopy involves the use of light, magnification and color to create a detailed image of the skin and its sublayers. It can provide much more detail than a dermatologist might get from a visual inspection alone. 

Fraxel lasers are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles and acne scarring. Fraxel is especially effective on deep scarring that affects the surface texture of the skin. Stronger lasers such as the Fraxel Restore can resurface the skin to a visible effect. Fraxel results in redness and scaling, and it is recommended that you avoid using cosmetics, creams and acne medication in the days following treatment.
