”I first started routinely using lasers, radio-frequency ablation machines, electrosurgery and Botox for disorders of the skin and for aesthetics in 2003. I always wanted to use lasers as my primary focus of practice. So I watched the development of lasers, and studied the systems, but no one system delivered what I felt my patients needed. Finally the Fotona Dynamis System was developed and available. I felt like I could offer my patients a wide variety of treatments that would benefit almost everyone. The added benefit of being able to safely provide these laser treatments in Florida was key. The Fotona Dynamis Laser is truly the most modern, safe and cutting edge laser technology. I’m also proud to say, that according to Fotona, I have the only system south
