These days, many people seek to rejuvenate their appearance with minimal recovery time. Fortunately, with the recent technological advances in laser technology, patients can now improve their looks on their lunch break. Laser procedures such as skin photo-rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, and non-ablative skin resurfacing produce effective and relatively painless results. These treatments smoothen and tighten the skin, erasing lines and wrinkles. Laser technology also introduces the possibility to greatly reduce the prominence of age spots and brown spots.

Lasers can eliminate unsightly varicose veins and spider veins and can serve as a means for permanent hair removal. Some excellent candidates for laser treatment include women who find it onerous to shave their legs every day. Increasingly, men opt to avail themselves of this treatment as well.
