Is Acne Surgery covered by insurance companies

For treating acne flares and medical treatment, most insurance companies cover many of these expenses.  When it comes to improving acne scars and the cosmetic portion through Acne Surgery, in my experience, insurance companies generally do not cover these expenses. You should always inquire with the particular insurance companies that you are covered under and their particular policies.  When it comes to active lesions which require some procedures such as incisions and drainages, extractions, and surgically treating active lesions; insurance companies are more likely to treat these.  I usually treat the cosmetic portions that result from Acne which aren’t covered by insurance such as laser treatments, scar excisions, subcision, grafting of skin to scars, etc. Here is a live demonstration video of an Acne Treatment Procedure.
