Lasers have multiple uses, such as the reduction of redness, pigmentation, premature ageing and collagen induction. Often, people are misled about what lasers can achieve and are unaware of other impacting factors.
Laser technology ensures the correct target in the skin is addressed, decreasing the risk of negative side effects. Skin health vastly affects the benefits of laser treatments, so the healthier your skin, the more receptive it is and the more likely it is to recover quickly.
Your practitioner should be able to clearly assess your skin’s health and function, rather than addressing one problematic area. They should also have a thorough understanding of skin health, use of laser machines, and education and aftercare to manage and help achieve your skin goals.
When looking for a laser practitioner, always ask about the procedure you’re having and the risks involved. It’s important to know what to expect during and after the procedure.
