About Raleigh Laser
& Aesthetics

Before Raleigh Laser & Aesthetics, our practice (FoundationMED, PLLC) was strictly a functional medicine practice.  At FoundationMED patients often asked us about skin care products, sun screen etc. We identified a need for a med-spa that focuses on clean skin care and non-toxic, safe skin treatments that are highly effective.  Good health and taking care of your body can definitely improve your skin’s appearance, but that will only take you so far.  If you want to maintain a youthful look and turn back the hands of time, high quality, effective skin care products are a must.  Regular facials, laser treatments and micro needling also can have an amazing impact. At Raleigh Laser & Aesthetics we are passionate about providing the best, most effective skin care available in a soothing, patient centered setting provided by licensed practitioners/estheticians that are the best in the business.
