I'm not asking you guys which field is more interesting or which one will yield more satisfaction. What I'm curious is which one would be easier to open a private practice, eg. in terms of obtaining and maintaining equipment, finding qualified assistants and personnel, rate of malpractice suits, salary/hour ratio, etc.

I must imagine equipment needed will be $$$ for both b/c they both use laser machines? Which one would be more?

Bottom line: which field allows less headache private practice lifestyle?
