As a nurse working in intensive care, Antonette "Toni" Dardeno, an RN and certified medical laser safety officer who was a contributing author in CMLSOs' Best Practices in Medical Laser Safety, saw firsthand how advanced medical equipment could change lives. It wasn’t until her personal experience with a dermatologist, however, that she understood the effects lasers could have on the skin. Though this experience became the catalyst for her interest in skincare and medical-grade lasers, it was her passion to help others that led her to establish Laser Enhanced Therapies.

A trained laser technician or nurse reaches for the GentleLase 755 system for pale complexions, while employing GentleYAG 1064 system for those with a darker skin tone. In addition to laser treatments, Toni and crew also clear complexions with facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which they enhance with paraben-free MyChelle Dermaceuticals, IMAGE, and Aubrey Organics products.
