Do you take insurance?
We do not take insurance – but we can generate a bill/receipt for you to submit to your insurance. It is completely the patient’s responsibility regarding any insurance claims. The vast majority of the procedures offered at Revitalift Aesthetic Center are not covered by insurance plans as they are considered cosmetic.
We offer CareCredit information, application approvals and information on low or no interest 0% rates. CareCredit, a division of GE Money offers healthcare financing for consumers through a network of over 125,000 providers. Founded in 1987, CareCredit was initially offered to doctors to help their patients pay for new dental implant technology. Continued advancements in technology, and procedures that are often not covered or fully covered by insurance, have created new choices for care, increasing the demand for financing options. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that can be used as a payment option for certain expenses not covered by insurance or to bridge situations when desired care exceeds insurance coverage.
CareCredit is offered primarily for:
- Vision correction
- Veterinary medicine
- Hearing care
- Cosmetic treatments and surgery
What is CareCredit?
CareCredit is a simple way to consolidate and manage certain out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, because it is a credit card with a revolving line of credit that can be used repeatedly and for any family member.
CareCredit offers two basic payment plans to meet an individual’s financial needs:
- No Interest plans for 6, 12, 18 or 24 months that charge no interest when accountholders make their required minimum monthly payment and pay off the remaining balance within the promotional period. These are the most popular plans, with more than half of patients selecting these options. Cardholders get a No Interest* payment plan if paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months on purchases with the CareCredit card. Interest will be charged to the account from the purchase date if the promotional balance, including optional charges, is not paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months or if a late payment is made. Minimum payments are required.
- Extended Payment Plans for 24, 36, 48 or 60 months. These plans carry an interest rate that is more competitive than most bankcards and feature a fixed, monthly payment and a longer term.
Give Revitalift Aesthetic Center a call to find out how to qualify for small monthly payment plans at 0% interest.
Why are you in South Lincoln?

What is different about skin care products that you carry versus products from a department store like Macy’s, Target, or Dillard’s?
Medical grade cosmeceuticals from Aesthetic Concepts have ingredients and composition that are not available from over the counter dispensers like these Department stores. For example, we have hydroquinone 4% strength in several of our products that allows for the more effective treatment of pigmented lesions. In addition, our staff closely monitors each patient’s response to these products and supplements them with prescription modalities when needed. This is not available at Target or Macy’s.
What is the number one recommendation you have for skin care?
Sun Protection without a doubt. Excess sun exposure contributes to over all poor skin health.
If you are a tanner, you are likely to have:
- Wrinkled and leathered skin
- Higher risk of skin cancer
- Complexion problems that can include pigmented or blotchy areas
A close second is the need to be on a good skin care regimen with medical grade cosmeceuticals. Like you mother always said, its is great to get your teeth cleaned by the dentist twice a year but even better if you brush your teeth every day.

How does laser hair reduction work?
Our laser emits a pulse of light, which is absorbed by the pigmentation, and blood vessels of the hair follicle. When that light is absorbed by the hair follicle, it is converted to heat, which then destroys the follicle.When the hair follicle is destroyed, it is unable to re-grow hair. Because of the unique properties of each laser wavelength, the tissue surrounding the hair follicle is left untouched leaving your skin smooth.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Our lasers are FDA approved. When performed by our trained and experienced practioners ,side effects from laser hair removal are uncommon. Potential reactions include hyper-pigmentation (darkening of the skin) or a histamine reactions (allergic reaction from the heat). Both conditions are temporary and can be treated with topical creams.
