New this week to our Web site is a revamped “Find a Dealer” tool including an interactive map to help you find your nearest authorized X-Laser retailer.

During the weekend of Jan. 22, 2016, the Washington, D.C., metro area (and X-Laser HQ) experienced a historic snowstorm, with some areas receiving as many as 36 inches of snow in just over 24 hours.

The crowd gathered in the streets to watch the glistening ball drop to welcome the new year. This was not Times Square, though — this was Baltimore.
