SKIN 101 Insured Medical Services

Acne Treatment

Prescribed acne treatments may be covered by your insurance policy depending on your individual coverage and the severity of the acne. Your payment portion depends on your policy coverage and requirements.

At SKIN 101, we provide options from topical skin care products to prescription medications in addition to our in-office procedures. Our procedures and treatments are supervised by licensed physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners.

Acne treatments that may be covered by your insurance companies include acne cleansing, chemical peels, acne surgery, day and evening management regimen, and Cryotherapy.

Actinic Keratosis

Years of sun exposure causes Actinic Keratosis to develop, appearing as rough-textured, scaly, dry lesions or patches that form on the outermost layer of the skin. Most insurance companies will cover the use of laser therapy, chemical exfoliation, and Blue U Levulan therapy for these precancerous lesions.

Wart and Lesion Removal

While all warts are skin growths caused by viruses, different warts respond to different treatments, and some warts go away on their own. Salicylic acid and nitrogen freezing can help with removal of many warts. We will assess, diagnose, monitor, and remove if medically necessary.

Full Body Skin Exams

Most insurance companies will pay for one visit per year. A full body skin exam is an invaluable tool and preventive measure in the early detection of skin cancer as well as many other dermatological conditions.

Mole Removal

Moles may appear black, brown, or tan and are benign pigmented spots of skin. Moles that are larger than six millimeters, itch or bleed, rapidly change in color, size or shape, have multiple colors, or are located in an area that can’t be easily monitored (such as on the scalp,) should be examined by a professional immediately. We will assess, diagnose, monitor, and remove if medically necessary.

Rosacea Treatment

While there is no cure for Rosacea, there are many ways one can treat the symptoms and slow the progression of the skin condition. One unique treatment option SKIN 101 offers is laser therapy. Along with medical management, laser treatments can help treat the blood vessels causing the flare ups.
