Cash : With rare exceptions, laser resurfacing is considered a cosmetic procedure, not covered by any insurance. However, if you have a health savings account (hsa), you might be able to use that money to pay for it. Laser resurfacing is a medical procedure.

Normally self pay : Laser resurfacing is typically not covered by insurance, unless needed in relation to trauma, cancer, etc. And even then, most carriers will not pay, or make it difficult to get them to pay.
