Laser Lights Discusses Importance of American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery Membership
Laser Lights has been dedicated to staying at the forefront of laser technology and advancements since our office opened over 10 years ago. We are focused on providing safe and effective laser treatments for patients in the Atlanta and Duluth areas. As a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) our office is committed to instituting the latest research, education and clinical care in the field of medical lasers.
According to their website, ASLMS was founded in 1980 and “is the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in patient care by advancing laser applications and related technologies.” This organization establishes practice guidelines and safety standards for the use of lasers, provides informative public information about laser treatment and publishes the world’s primary laser journal, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine. Demonstrated educational and practice experience is required to maintain an associate membership.
ASLMS includes a diverse group of individuals such as scientists, physicians and other health care professionals who are significantly involved with the laser industry. As there are many unique lasers specified for certain laser procedures a patient should make sure the provider only offers medical grade, FDA cleared or FDA approved lasers. When considering laser treatments it’s also imperative to find a qualified health care provider specializing in lasers and to look for American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery membership.
At Laser Lights we use over 12 different types of medical grade lasers to meet each patient’s specific skin needs.
