There's been yet another arrest in cosmetic surgery:
In Chicago: "Med Spa Patients Say Lasers Scarred, Burned Them"
A chain of med-spas is dealing with lawsuits alleging that inexperienced and unqualified practitioners treated them with lasers when they should not have.
From the article:
"Can your skin type tolerate laser treatments? If so, which laser? At what energy level? And for how long? Those are all decisions that need to be made by an experienced practitioner.
For others the treatments can bring great results, but Garden, the past president of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery warns, "These machines can still cause damage. They can still injure the patient."
This is a bad trend that is getting worse and worse with the state of the economy. Expect some big stories in the media about this type of thing soon.
