Separating Myths from facts about Laser Treatments
04 November 2020
We live in a digital age where information floats around like air, blowing from one place to every other corner of the world. This was made possible by the advent of 21stcentury’s biggest invention; internet.
But everything comes with its pros and cons, and the biggest flaw of internet is the mighty jumble of unauthentic information roving. All you need to become an expert or a specialist in a respective field is the art of “Googling”.
Well this may sound sarcastic and funny but on the contrary, it’s critically serious by nature and intent.
Let’s take skin care for an example – How many times have you bailed out of a skin care treatment just because you read some unauthentic information about it without even bothering to consult a skin care professional?
Many times is the answer.
Now let’s talk about one of the latest and biggest fads in the realm of skin care treatments; “Laser Treatments”.
All you want to have them but you are just too chicken to get them as you have been fed the biggest myths and lies about this effective and futuristic skin care solution.
Time to be logical and separate some myths from facts about Laser Treatments.
I have a Dark Skin so I can’t get Laser Treatments
Wait… What? Are we still living in the 90s?
It is true that your skin tone does have an effect in the details of your laser treatments; many of modern machines like Elite MPX by CYNOSURE USA & Gentle MAX PRO 2016 Model by SYNERON-CANDELA USA have adjustable settings and are suitable and safe for all possible skin types.
Laser Treatments yield Instant Results
Wrong choice of word fellows.
It provides quick results, not instant. It isn’t magic.
Professional laser clinics like New Face Laser and Cosmetic Clinic work with your body’s natural processes for best results and no side effects, and this may take some time and a number of treatments.
Lasers Work on the Skin’s Surface Only
Laser machines are carefully designed to focus on different cosmetic and skin concerns which is why their wavelength of laser light varies.
While some are designed to work on the skin’s surface problems only, some are designed to penetrate deeper into skin’s blood vessels.
IPL and Lasers are the Same Thing
Contrary to the popularly believed myth, IPL and lasers are not the same but they are designed for different purposes.
IPL is a highly intensified pulse light that uses a broad spectrum at multiple wavelengths.
On the other hand, Lasers use a single, precise, and focused wavelength for maximum absorption of the follicle. The color of the follicle is the primary target.
Lasers can cause Cancer
This is the most wide spread and falsifying myth about laser treatments you could ever hear.
Calm your horses because there is no chance of a laser treatment to give you cancer as they discharge no harmful radiations. If anything they’ll give you a clear and hair-free skin not cancer.
Laser Treatments are too Expensive
Obviously the definition economical and expensive varies from person to person and budget to budget but laser treatments are quite economical than you perceive them to be.
