Integrated Dermatology of Boise invites you to come in for a treatment consultation to discuss your goals. If laser treatment aligns with them, your dermatologist reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate. They also tell you what you need to do to prepare for the type of laser treatment you get.
