Laser Resurfacing Consultation Fee

My local skin care clinic will charge a $225 fee just to talk to one of their cosmetic doctors about getting Fraxel. Is that normal?

Yep. It does vary, from $0 (depending on procedure) to $250.

That is ridiculously expensive. They also said the fee cannot be used towards the first treatment.

Does anyone have recommendations for Fraxel around Boston, MA?

That's insane.

I've been reading realself lately, and it seems that a lot of doctors who specialize in acne scar treatments agree that lasers are mostly a waste of money (unless your skin problems aren't serious), and you that you will only get significant improvement via injectible fillers and scar excision.

I'd expect fees in major cities to be more expensive.

Look here for local dermatologists and plastic surgeons: realself.com/find

Yes, it does depend on the type of scars, how bad they are, what you want for down time, skin type, and whether you have active acne.
