SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Institute of Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetics is now offering Alma Lasers AFT™ treatments to South Texas residents including San Antonio and Boerne area to treat superficial vascular and pigmented irregularities and to improve skin color.

"I'm very excited to add this new service for our patients," said Dr. Ghohestani, director of Texas Institute of Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetics. "As a long time provider of aesthetic medicine, we wanted to find a system that not only met my patients' needs, but exceeded them.
