In brief: Specialty training
It's important to find a doctor who has specialty training in lasers.
Many doctors and nurses learn how to use a laser merely by attending a weekend course. Most doctors don't get adequate laser training during their residency and get more specialized training during a fellowship that concentrates on laser and cosmetic surgery. Important to ask how many procedures they've performed.
