  • Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists perform both medical and cosmetic procedures. Medical procedures are typically covered (at least in part) by insurance (but please check with them to be sure).
  • Cosmetic procedures, like fillers, laser hair removal, vein treatments, cellulite treatment, and facial peels are typically not covered by insurance. For cosmetic consultations, there will be a fee of $200 (if you see Dr G) or $150 (if you see our PA).
  • If we determine that the procedures are medical in nature, we will gladly refund your fee. When in doubt, please check with your insurance plan.
