About Physicians Laser Center
Physicians' Laser Center has been recognized by physicians from all specialties as pioneers in the aesthetic industry. We are committed to the highest standards and are passionate about the role we play in the training and ethical practices required in today's dynamic aesthetic market.
From the beginning, our concept has been simple: Educate consumers about the incredible benefits offered by "state of the art" laser procedures. PLC and its team have always been at the forefront of evaluating new laser technology for safety, reliability, and effectiveness.
What kinds of lasers does PLC use?
Many clinics employ the one-size-fits-all mentality, when it comes to lasers. At PLC, we use several of the latest FDA-approved lasers for all laser hair removal treatments and skin rejuvenation treatments. We custom tailor an individuals treatment to their specific hair color and skin type.
Who performs the laser treatments?
All laser treatments are performed in a physicians office by a certified medical practitioner under the direct supervision of the physician in that office. Before performing any treatments, each practitioner is trained intensively on the proper and effective use of the laser technology..
Does my insurance cover treatments?
No, unfortunately all of our procedures are considered cosmetic, solely for the purpose of altering a person's appearance, and as such, an uninsured service.
