Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What should I expect during my cosmetic consultation?
During your cosmetic consultation, your dermatologist will assess your skin care concerns and make comprehensive recommendations about procedures that will enhance your appearance based on your aesthetic goals. The doctor will also suggest skin care products that will slow the aging process and reverse some stigmata of photo damage.
Our cosmetic consultations require a $100 deposit. The full amount can be used towards any treatments or products that you choose to purchase.
Are cosmetic procedures covered by insurance?
In general, cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance. However, we do offer affordable, self-pay options. Contact us at 203.259.7709 for details.
How often should I get a full body skin examination?
We recommend you have a yearly skin check with your dermatologist to detect any suspicious moles or unusual lesions. If you have skin cancer, your doctor will recommend the frequency of your ongoing skin checks.
