Lasers they use in licensed facilities are strong and need careful adjustment so as not to burn you or be too weak. I have a hard time believing they can make something that is just right for everyone and have it still work. I'm a pessimist like that.
It's cool and a good idea though.
Here's a link
I did a bit more research. It does work and has been in use in Japan and the UK for a bit. But the problem I read of in one review is that it does sting a bit and when the sting hits it is second nature to move the laser head away and of course if you do that it doesn't work. I think I am going to look into the professional a bit more. I'm thinking if I get it done, I will no how badly it stings and if I think I want to get a Tria for follow-up treatments I may do that.
