Laser Treatments – Talk apples to apples before you decide…

Many people are choosing laser treatments for their acne and acne scarring.  Having worked for many years in one of the busiest laser centers on the west coast, I saw some BIG mistakes being made by the consumer.  Comparing prices of laser treatments can be a tricky business.  You can get huge discrepancies in pricing but that doesn’t mean that one doctor just charges more than the other.  There are different ways to use the same laser.  Some doctors are more aggressive than others and do “more pulses” (firings of the laser)  More pulses = more $$$.  More pulses, however, typically mean better results.  Some doctors do “more passes” (layers of pulses)  More passes = more $$$.  More passes generally mean better results.  (this is “generally speaking”… some lasers would harm you if you do too many pulses and passes, so don’t demand more to try to get your money’s worth!)  Here’s a typical scenario – Dr. John Doe may do 100 pulses and distribute those pulses one time over the face (one pass).  Dr. Jane Doe may do 500 pulses and distribute those pulses over three passes (three times around the face).  So, there you have the same laser being used, but the intensity of the treatment differs significantly, as do the results, as does the price.  The bottom line when choosing a doctor and a laser treatment is research, research, research!  Here are a few pointers to get you started in your quest to find the perfect doctor for your laser therapy…  remember, make sure you’re talking apples to apples when purchasing a laser treatment!
-be sure that the doctor you choose is well educated and experienced in laser therapy.
-ask how long he has had the laser he is going to use on you and how many patients have had the same treatment. (some offices have before and afters so that you can see the results of other patients)
-be sure that all staff performing laser treatments are licensed to do so as laws differ from state to state.  (i.e. in the state of California, it is unlawful for anyone but an RN, NP, PA or MD to perform laser treatments.)
-ask how long the technician has been performing laser treatments.
There are many other questions to be asked before you choose your doctor and your treatment.  Study and research before you take the laser leap!
