Cosmetic Surgery For Men and National Laser Institute

Ever wish you could just not shave? Or get rid of the “crows feet” around your eyes? Any cosmetic surgery seems like a big pain in the neck and takes too much time to recover. Not any more.


Fueled by Celebrity Interest, Med Spas Become the New Hot Spot of 2008

For years, men have searched the world over for ways to get a younger look. Up until recently, the only way to get it was with a lackluster skin cream, providing temporary results, or a trip to the plastic surgeon. Fortunately, wearing face bandages for months is now a thing of the past. With the introduction of cosmetic lasers, men are able to experience a brand new world of safe aesthetic treatments with astounding results.

Big-name celebrities and television shows such as “Dr. 90210” are spurring the booming industry, changing societies perception of non-invasive age-defying therapies. The skin-conscious public is now treating itself to a day at the med spa. National Laser Institute – the nation’s leader in cosmetic laser aesthetics – has moved into the spotlight by educating cosmetic specialists across the country to offer the hottest cosmetic treatments around. Here are two of the most in-demand service requests National Laser Institute receives:

The most talked about new anti-aging treatments use a fractional laser. Unlike a traditional single-beam laser, the fractional laser focuses thousands of microscopic beams of light on the skin. This technique causes the skin to refresh itself and produce age-defying collagen naturally, without the need for injections. Information on how laser wrinkle reduction works is available at
