When will the RecoSMA laser be available in the US?

When will the RecoSMA laser be available in the US?? I've been reading good reviews on it for scars. Please let us know when we could expect it to be used here or do we have to go to other countries who have been using it to have it done? And why don't we have it here since it's getting good results?

RecoSMA in the US

RecoSMA laser treatments are not currently available in the US. The good news is however that filings have started with the FDA to bring the device to the United States, so stay tuned! Reach out to the company directly for more accurate updates.
