Besides increased accuracy, markedly fewer side effects and reduced recovery times, top-of-the-line lasers with their modular and easy-to-upgrade components are preferred by aestheticians and surgeons for virtually every kind of treatment from minor cosmetic procedures to major surgery. Besides using lasers for hair, vein and tattoo removal, we also find them to be nearly indispensable in more complex surgical procedures such as facelifts.
At Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics (RMLA), two of the exceptional lasers that we use are the Sciton and the Cynosure. They were added to our collection because they offer the best technology on the market today.
