PHILADELPHIA -

When it comes to ladies and their legs, more women are turning to laser and light treatments for smooth, healthy skin. But when it comes to selecting the right spa for the treatment, no one wants to be burned or injured.

On the FOX 29 News at 10 p.m. Tuesday, FOX 29's Joyce Evans introduced you to a woman who was burned after getting treatment at an area spa.

We're not naming the spa where the woman received her treatment because according to current laws, and as far as we can see, no rules have been broken.

Still, whether you're getting a good deal or not, doctors recommend you do your homework before committing to any treatments.

Below, we've put together several recommended links to help you get started.
