The Laser Medicine Center Rhine-Ruhr (LMZ) was founded under the direction of dermatologist Reinhard W. Gansel in 1996. The aim was to make the various therapeutic possibilities being revealed through the utilization of the laser light in medicine, accessible to a large part of the public.
The LMZ was therefore among the first lasercenters in Germany and it was also the only institution at that time that offered laser treatments performed by medical specialists under dermatological standards.
Not only has the medical team been greatly extended with Dr. med. Joanna Koch, Dr. med. Melanie Schulz, Dr. med. Frauke Reichwein, Dr. med. Markus Steinert, Dr. med. Karl Schuhmann and Dr. med. Sebastian Koch, but also the medical spectrum now ranges from laser treatments to classic dermatology and phlebology to plastic and aesthetic surgery - always under the supervision of medical specialists.
