Easing Acne Scars with MixTo Laser Treatments

Posted by Marsha Davis on Sun, Jul 14, 2013 @ 03:48 PM

As anyone with acne scars understands, finding an effective scar treatment can be frustrating. Many people use creams and topical treatments, trying various kinds over a period of years. These lotions and gels may irritate the skin but provide no real improvement to skin texture or discoloration. In the past, laser treatments were very severe and invasive, avoided by many and "suffered through" by some brave souls. Despite trying many different treatment methods, the effects of mild to severe acne are often still visible and may even have worsened. After years of visits to the dermatologist, medical office or aesthetician, only disappointment, wasted time and money result.

At this point, many patients give up on having smooth, clear skin again. Fortunately, an effective acne scar treatment laser is now available. Along with other methods in a custom-tailored acne scar treatment plan, the MiXto CO2 Laser makes the exasperation, discomfort and embarrassment of acne scarring a thing of the past.

Top 4 Medical Spa Treatments That Insurance Might Cover

Posted by Marsha Davis on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 @ 02:29 PM

Will insurance cover your cosmetic procedure? 

One of the great things about Medical Spas is that they offer minimally invasive procedures in a relaxed spa environment, so it's no suprise that many people seek treatment through this industry. This also has many people wondering if insurance will cover their medical spa procedures. In short, probably not. Most insurance providers will not cover your medical spa procedures, but some may qualify for coverage.

Most of the treatments that you receive at your Medical Spa are considered cosmetic procedures, elective and not medically necessary even though a physician or medical professional performs them. However, some medical spa treatments may provide you with the option of reimbursement, so check with your insurance carrier for more coverage details.
