To the reader who wrote in about eye protection with lasers.

Just to be very clear. Patients’ eyes should ALWAYS be protected when using laser devices. And, patients’ eyes are always protected in our office. We use both external shields and also intraocular (like a contact lens in the eye) depending on the type of laser we are using and where on the body or face we are working.


I have no idea where you got the idea that I was advocating using lasers without eye protection.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
