Laser Treatments for Skin : How do they help?
Skin being the external most goes through extensive wear and tear and is subjected to extreme damage at times.
Internal Health also affects the skin in ways that have been extensively discussed- some examples being the effect of an unhealthy diet on skin, How lack of exercise can affect skin and so on.

🔥 What is a LASER? How does it work?
Lasers are sources of high intensity light. It accurately focuses on small spots with high energy.
Laser Beams can gently repair, revive and rejuvenate skin tissues from inside out using their deep wavelengths and ability to penetrate deeper without damaging the superficial skin.
Imagine sunlight travelling through the water in a pond- no effect is seen on the surface but light enters the water and can be used by the plants underneath for survival.

🔥 When properly performed, laser and light-based treatments can visibly improve the skin conditions and problems. And they also rejuvenate the skin.
🔥 Recovery too, varies, depending on the type of procedure employed. Mild treatments, such as those with low-powered lasers typically have very fast recovery times, generally a few days to one week.
🔥 Aggressive laser treatments require a longer recovery period. Typically, the skin will go through various stages of healing and may take 2-3 weeks for complete repair.
🔥 Is It Safe?
Laser is a surgical procedure and all surgical procedures carry some risk.
Ablative laser and light-based treatments can result in infections, cold sores, milia (small white elevated cysts of superficial skin), darkening of the skin (particularly if exposed to the sun after surgery) .
Non-ablative techniques can cause temporary hyperpigmentation (skin darkening), blisters, and damage to the eyes from laser exposure.

🔥With salons, spas and unqualified quacks using latest lasers to attract customers and even untrained staff performing sessions various clinics- the reporting of side effects is very high.
🔥 But for any patient who has got treated by a qualified Laser physician and by a standard device- will be the best testimony for the laser device and the treating physician.
