Laser Hair Removal & Laser Skin Rejuvenation Injuries
Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Laser Injury Lawyer
The medical spa industry has grown significantly. Americans spend over $10 billion per year for cosmetic medical procedures. Industry analysts have projected that the total market for cosmetic procedures and medical spa services will be valued at nearly $15 billion and growth is projected.
Despite marketing efforts by Spas, so called, "MedSpas" or "Medi-Spas", and other interested corporations profiting from the growth in the medical spa industry, these procedures are not risk free, and can cause permanent scarring, skin discoloration, and burns.
A 2003 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed that nearly 41 percent of responding physicians reported an increase in patients seeking treatment due to damage caused by untrained, non-physicians performing laser and light rejuvenation techniques, chemical peels, laser hair removal and other skin procedures.
