Doctors warn of medical spa laser treatments

Cosmetic laser treatments are now being performed at med spas and some physicians say this can be dangerous to a patient's health.

Med spas offer cosmetic laser procedures which may be performed by someone who is not a doctor.

More than three-quarters of current lawsuits involving laser procedures are against non-doctors.

Physicians say while it is legal in most states to perform laser procedures without a medical degree at med spas, it is not always safe.
