There is only a medicare rebate for non-fraction erbium or co2 laser. The condition treated must be scarring of the face or neck, rather than sun damage/wrinkles. The medicare safety net also applies to this rebate, when your out of pocket fees have exceeded your threshold. You get an 80% rebate then.
