Creating a Custom Treatment Plan

One of the most frequent questions that we get is, “How much is ______ going to cost?”

This is asked about many of our services including injectables, laser services, Coolsculpting, BodyTite, cosmetic surgery, and more. For these treatments, our answer is usually “You need to come in for a consult to determine your cost”, which is not the answer they want to hear. These services require a custom treatment plan, which means a custom price, as well. We want to take time to explain why we can’t give a quote before coming in for a consult.

1. Every patient is different
Your skin type, body chemistry, medical history, diet, hobbies & activities, etc, are all considered when determining the treatment that is right for you. Whether it’s the number of treatments you will need or the number of units or syringes you will need, we customize every procedure to you specifically.
For example, the number and severity of sun spots or age spots a person has will determine the number of facial or laser treatments they need to achieve optimal results.

2. Each patient is looking for a different result
Expectations and desired results are going to determine the number of treatments, type of treatment for fat reduction, size of implants, etc. We want to help you achieve the body that YOU want, which means that the treatment plan is specifically tailored to you.
For example, some women may want Kylie Jenner lips and others just want to reduce the lines around the lips and not add too much volume. Same with body contouring and plastic surgery, some size 14 women may want to be a size 10, but others may want to be a size 6, so they will need different treatment plans to achieve their different goals.

3. Every patient’s budget is different
The amount of money needed to get to your desired result may be different than what you are willing or able to pay, so you may have to adjust your expectations to fit your budget.
For example, to get the waistline you want, you may need CoolSculpting on your abdomen, flanks, and back. But if you cannot afford all areas, you can start with the one that bothers you the most and come back later to work on the other areas to help spread out the costs.

We want to help you achieve your desired results, but we can only truly know what results you want by talking to you during an in-person consult. There are so many factors that can only be discovered during your consult, that it is impossible for us to give you a quote prior to seeing you in the office.

The number of treatments for laser hair removal depends on the type of hair you have – thick, thin, coarse, light, etc. The number of treatments to remove a tattoo depends on size, color, area of the body, etc. The number of Botox units depends on how strong the muscles are, etc. The number of CoolSculpting treatments you need depends on the area of the body, how much fat needs reduced, etc. And on and on for each of our custom treatments.

Consults with our Aestheticians and Nurse Injectors are FREE, and consults with our Doctors are $50. There is no obligation to purchase any services or products. We also offer financing through Care Credit so you can pay monthly to help it fit into your budget.
