It was a choice the doctors made not to be contracted with any insurance companies. This decision freed them from restrictions often put forth by insurance companies, as well as allowing them to spend more time with each patient. However, although the practice operates on a fee-for-service basis, we assist with third party services (lab work, biopsies, prescriptions, etc.), allowing you to utilize your insurance benefits whenever possible.
The cost is dependent upon the number of units Dr. Fong uses. Unfortunately there is no average, as each person’s face structure, muscle tone, age acceleration, etc. is different. If you have never had this kind of treatment before, we recommend first having a consultation with Dr. Fong. Once she sits down with you and is able to see you face-to-face and address your concerns, she would be able to give you an idea of how many units you would need for successful results. For most people, it will last 3-4 months, but the duration varies for each individual.
Dr. Fong’s time is valuable, and she has many patients who want to schedule appointments with her. The deposit is to ensure adequate time is blocked out for each patient. The deposit will be placed on your account as a credit, which will then be deducted from the charges on the day of your appointment. Failure to give us 24 hours’ notice if you are unable to make your appointment or need to reschedule will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.
Botox and Dysport are relaxers – they work to relax the muscles that tighten to form lines and wrinkles. Fillers are used to replace lost volume, as everyone’s face loses volume as they age. They are often used together to achieve a more successful, youthful-looking result. In a consultation appointment with Dr. Fong, she would be able to make recommendations based on your concerns and unique situation, as well as explain why you would be a good candidate for one type of treatment over another.
