What are questions that I should ask when choosing a Med-Spa and laser treatment facility?
- Who will perform the laser treatment? Only physicians and supervised certified medical professionals should be performing laser treatments.
- What are the qualifications and experience of the person performing the treatment? Qualified technicians should have completed laser training courses which have covered physics, laser safety and indications for laser treatments. In addition, laser technicians should have undergone a period of direct supervision by a physician during their extensive laser training.
- How long has the center been in business? The amount of time the center has been in business is a reflection of its commitment and dedication to its patients and community. In general, businesses that have survived 5 – 6 years or longer in one location have proven themselves to their community and the community has had time to evaluate that business.
Visit the center, meet with the physician and staff, and after your tour of the facility, ask yourself:
