In brief: Cosmetic center

Laser resurfacing is offered in cosmetic centers such as medical spas, dermatology and plastic surgery offices.
Experience with this laser can provide excellent results and no side effects. This laser can be done on all skin types however darker skin types will need pretreatment and experienced clinicians.

In brief: Good question

Ir is always a good idea to thoroughly investigate your physician's credentials.
At the very least, i would make sure that it is a physician who is delivering the treatment or a qualified individual under their immediate supervision. Their hospital affiliations, practice history, board certification, disciplinary actions, & peer references as well as patient testimonials are all items to consider.
