  • Loss Leaders

    Do any of you offer loss leaders in your practice? If not, should you add them? What exactly is a loss leader? The term used to refer to items or services offered at a reduced price.

In theory, this procedure creates a controlled wound healing process. The process is similar to that provided by fractionated lasers, however with ePrime there is no thermal impact to the epidermis.
