There have been debates going on about the pros and cons of laser treatment, which may have been preventing you from getting the best treatment solution for your skin concerns. Laser treatments are in fact one of the most effective solutions for varying skin conditions, when it is performed by a well-trained and certified physician. In this article, we are laying out the common myths about laser treatments, debunking them with only the truths, so that you can make an informed decision when the need arises.

Myth 1: All laser treatments are the same

Truth: There is no one-size-fits-all in laser treatments. In fact almost every laser machine is different from one another and targets unique concerns, and it requires a trained physician to operate them optimally and safely. There are different laser treatments that specialise in improving varying skin concerns effectively. Depending on the types of laser treatments your clinic offers, pigmentation, scars, wrinkles, and even general skin appearance can be improved tremendously.

Myth 2: Laser treatments are unnecessary because your skincare is good enough

Truth: While skincare is crucial to maintain a good skin appearance, some concerns could really benefit from skin repairing treatments like lasers. More severe conditions such as scars, birthmarks or even unwanted tattoos are obviously unable to be reduced by your regular skincare, which is where laser treatments come to the rescue!

Myth 3: Laser treatments can cause the skin to thin out

Truth: Instead of thinning out the skin, laser treatments actually rejuvenate the skin and improve the overall appearance even more by inducing the natural production of collagen and stimulating the elastin in skin. As long as the treatment is done correctly with treatment cycles as advised by your physician, laser treatments are less likely to cause unwanted damages to your skin.

Myth 4: Laser treatments can cause burns

Truth: Laser treatments are generally done based on the principle of photo-thrombolysis which means only intended damaged cells are targeted, leaving the rest of the skin cells unharmed. So no, FDA-approved and safe laser treatments do not cause skin to burn. However, to ensure you are getting the best laser treatment, always be mindful to only undergo laser treatments with a certified physician and clinic.
