LED lights perform many functions in modern society, from providing handy keychain flashlights to illuminating brilliant TV images to melting fat off the body. Of course, the fat-reducing kind require a few more certifications to wield than a pocket flashlight.

The staff of Aesthetic Laser Solutions wield lasers daily, but unlike the characters in some sci-fi writer's novel, they wield their futuristic technologies to beautify the human body with efficient, comfortable, and safe treatments.
