A Few Words About Lasers

Home » A Few Words About Lasers

We will strive to meet your goals and objectives. We offer the most comprehensive laser and energy based technologies and treatments available in the Washington, DC area. In fact, many of the laser devices and treatment protocols used in the laser industry were researched and developed right here at our Center.  We own every one of our 20+ laser, light, and energy-based devices, allowing us to offer the most customized treatment plans to our patients using the most appropriate device or devices, specific for each patient’s unique goals or desires, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach commonly found at most medical offices and corporate medical spas.

While you may be interested in a particular laser or procedure, we ask that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Adrian or our experienced staff to discuss your concerns or treatment goals. There are many instances where the most effective or safest procedure is not the one that you read about on the internet or saw on instagram. It is also important to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate for a particular procedure. We do not desire to be a volume driven medical spa with minimally trained ‘providers’ pushing treatments on unsuspecting individuals. We seek to deliver safe, high-quality, effective treatments in a program directed by a Board Certified Dermatologist with extensive fellowship training in both cosmetic lasers and injectables.

Lasers are not magic wands. To safely and effectively use a laser requires a fundamental understanding of both the physics behind them and their photo-modulatory effects on skin. Laser companies have attempted to eliminate this knowledge requirement with weekend ‘certification’ courses and pre-loaded ‘safe’ settings that help them sell more lasers to people who have no business operating them. In a study of injury and litigation related to the use of lasers, 97% of laser injury and litigation from 2012 to 2020 involved non-dermatologists (non-physicians, plastic surgeons, and non-dermatologist physicians). Whether at our Center or the practice of your choosing, we implore you to trust these magnificent devices to the hands of experts who actually understand the the technology and science behind them.

The practice of laser and cosmetic medicine is our devotion, and we encourage you to come for a visit and find out yourself why the Center for Laser Surgery remains the premier cosmetic laser facility in the Washington, DC area. Please call 202-966-8814 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Adrian or one of our experienced staff, or click here to request a consultation.
