Why should I consider laser treatments at Celibre Medical Corporation?

Celibre Medical laser treatments are a proven way to safely and effectively treat many cosmetic skin conditions. We only use FDA-approved lasers for our treatments. Our laser providers are highly trained and experienced with the devices they use. They will perform a thorough evaluation and history with you before ever recommending a treatment or doing one. Your safety and satisfaction is our number one priority.

How much do the treatments cost?

The cost of your treatment depends on several factors including the type and severity of your skin condition and the number of treatments needed for optimal results. We will always make sure you are informed of each step of your treatment plan up front at your consultation and at every point along the way. We will do our best to work within your budget to achieve your desired results.

Are lasers covered by insurance?

Unfortunately, no. We understand that you (and we) may believe that your condition is medically necessary and therefore, should be covered, however, most insurance companies view lasers as aesthetic or cosmetic treatments and they do not cover them. Although we may disagree with that decision, we do not file your treatments with your insurance company for payment.

How many laser treatments will I need?

Most conditions require multiple treatments for optimal results. The average range is between two and eight, depending on the severity and type of condition that we are treating. Many of the treatments are short. Typically, they will take between 20-60 minutes to perform.

How often will I be treated?

This again, depends on the condition you have and the type of laser that is being used. Most of our lasers for are non-ablative, which means that they have very little to no downtime. This means we can usually repeat treatments every couple of weeks. However, depending on your specific condition, most treatments will be done every two to eight weeks to see the best results.

Does the Doctor do the treatments?

At Celibre Medical Corporation, your laser treatments are either done or supervised by our Physicians. We have worked very hard to build an excellent team of highly qualified, laser professionals. Only licensed medical professionals (RNs, NPs and PAs) that have been internally and externally trained will perform your treatments.

What will happen during my laser treatment?

When you arrive on the day of your treatment, we will escort you to a comfortable, quiet and private treatment room. The licensed medical professional who will perform your treatment that day will review your medical information, assess your condition and how you did at your last treatment session (if applicable). They will then calibrate the laser and ensure proper laser power and cooling. After you are made comfortable and positioned properly, our laser expert will use your patient skin type in combination with the laser technology to determine the proper laser setting for your treatment that day. Treatment will be given and your practitioner will give you detailed instructions for care of the area and when to come back and see us again.

Will the treatments hurt?

Most of the treatments involve a bit of discomfort. This is very subjective, but our patients tell us that many of our lasers feel like a rubber band snap when fired on the skin. Your comfort is our priority, so if at any time you would like us to help you feel more comfortable during your treatment, please just let us know. We are sometimes able to use a topical anesthetic prior to the laser treatment that can increase your comfort. Please always ask us if there is something we can do to help you with discomfort.

What happens after a laser treatment?

This answer really depends on which of the lasers is being used to treat your specific condition. For many of the treatments, you may have no noticeable redness or swelling, but sometimes you will have mild redness or even bruising that may be immediately covered with makeup. These types of treatments allow you to get back to your life right away. For more invasive laser procedures, such as ablative resurfacing, the downtime can be more significant. Most patients need 2-7 days of staying home and taking care of their skin with a specific regimen as it heals. Your laser provider will make sure you understand all of this at the time of your consultation appointment so that you can plan your treatment and your recovery appropriately.

What topical skin care products will be used?

At Celibre Medical, our medical laser therapies usually incorporate physician grade topical skin care products into your regimen to help you get the most out of your laser treatments. Rarely, are prescriptive topical agents required for you to use after your laser treatment.

What does the FDA say about laser treatments?

We have invested heavily in our laser technology. We will only recommend laser treatments that are FDA- approved due to their safety and effectiveness in treating certain skin conditions.

Can my child be treated with lasers?

Yes. Laser treatments for children are just as safe and effective as they are for adults. However, remember that since your child is still a minor, you or their parent or guardian will need to be with them at the time of treatment to legally sign for them and provide consent for treatment.

Are laser treatments safe for all skin types?

Yes. We have a wide range of lasers that can treat almost any skin condition or unwanted hair in a person with any skin type. With over 20 FDA-approved lasers, we have something for everyone!

Can I be treated while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Unfortunately, no. For liability reasons, we are not able to treat you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We will be happy to see you again after your baby is born or when you’ve stopped nursing and are ready for treatment.
