SNMG Cosmetic and Laser Services
Sutter physicians offer a wide range of exciting new treatments to brighten and improve your appearance. Medical advances available today can reverse or reduce the effects of sun damage and aging, improve body and facial features, erase tattoos, and provide other enhancements.
Before deciding on a cosmetic procedure, it’s important to remember that health insurance plans rarely cover treatments that are not medically necessary. You should expect to pay for the physician’s office for any services at the time you receive them. If you have questions on whether a procedure is covered, talk with your health plan provider or ask your doctor to obtain an insurance preauthorization before you receive services.
Services provided vary by physician and care center location, but may include:
- Glycolic and salicylic acid chemical peels
- Cosmetic mole removal
- Laser surgery for unwanted hair, vascular lesions, pigmented lesions and facial rejuvenation
- Cosmetic fillers such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm
- Sclerotherapy for treatment of unwanted leg veins
If you are considering cosmetic treatments, talk over your options with your dermatologist to determine the best treatments for your concerns.
