"Everyone's skin has unique needs and a different tolerance to treatment. Achieving the best result requires understanding the technology and physics behind each laser device, deciding which to use, and knowing how to customize the settings for each individual patient. This is the art, and the fun, of laser medicine." - Dr. Griffin
