Pointers with Dr Portela: How to Spot a Counterfeit Laser

In this week’s Pointers with Dr Portela, the 208SkinDoc highlights a growing issue of lasers made to look like or mimic the technology of already approved lasers but can have dangerous consequences.

Dustin Portela, DO, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Treasure Valley Dermatology in Boise, Idaho, sits down with Scott Carson, owner of MRP, from Park City, Utah to discuss counterfeit lasers. Carson’s company sells and services lasers, which is why he wanted to bring more awareness to this issue and provide tips on how to stay safe.
