Overview

Cosmetic laser surgery is an exciting new alternative to traditional plastic surgical procedures designed to beautify and correct physical defects. The advantages of laser surgery are impressive: procedures take just minutes to perform; are often accomplished with only a local anesthetic; require no incisions, blood loss, or sutures; and involve minimal recovery periods. Lasers offer noninvasive treatment for an extensive—and growing—list of conditions that previously required full-blown surgery to correct, including acne scars, tatoos, spider and varicose veins, birthmarks, crow's feet, lines around the mouth, and excess or thinning hair. Despite all the benefits, however, it is imperative to remember that cosmetic laser surgery is surgery. Consumers considering elective cosmetic procedures must be well informed. Beauty and the Beam is the ideal source of information on this topic and will guide readers in selecting the safest and most experienced practitioner; describe what to expect in a facility; explain what each kind of surgery entails; and show how costs differ from region to region and from practitioner to practitioner. Beauty and the Beam answers nearly every question readers may have about this hot new technology and provides step-by-step methods for evaluating their own needs and seeking the most qualified practitioner. Benefits: Discover what new laser techniques are available for cosmetic surgery. See how nearsightedness can be corrected permanently with laser procedures. Learn how "permanent" problems like age spots, port wine stains, and sagging eyelids can be eliminated quickly. Know the costs involved - and where you're likely to find the best deal. "Do your homework" - and make your time with the specialists more productive. Topics Covered: Facial Resurfacing (laser peel) Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) Hair Removal Tattoo Removal Nearsightedness Snoring Eliminating Port-Wine Stains Acne Scars Leg V
