Debunking color. Myth – I’m dark skinned, it is not for me!
Congratulations!! You are 100% wrong. Today’s modern laser equipment at your dermatologist’s clinic do not see your skin color and can very well treat dark skinned. These machines are adjustable to suit all or nearly all skin types. Before finalizing on this course, it is best to consult your dermatologist for the best recommendation.

Debunking time. Myth – laser skin treatment gives finger snapping results
It really depends on the type of treatment prescribed by your dermatologist for the type of problem you suffer. Most of these treatments sync with your body’s natural working process and hence, it will take time for the results to reflect – be it fading of acne/acne scars, fine lines, blemishes etc. Again, some treatment may take just one session and others a couple more. But, irrespective, your skin takes time to recuperate from the treatment.

Debunking aftermath. Myth – laser resurfacing leaves a residue after the treatment
This is not true! Though the earlier experiments of laser treatment (use of CO2 technology) used to leave a clear line, it is not the same anymore. Today’s lasers use fractionated CO2 technology helping skin rejuvenation with less healing time, superior results and no residual leaving behind.

Debunking recovery. Myth – recovery time post treatment is more
Again, it depends on the type of treatment you opt for. From example, fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatment, that changes skin texture irrespective of skin color and type, has a longer recovery period as compared to treatment for acne scars and blemishes. But laser treatments definitely have shorter recuperating period compared to surgeries.

Debunking type. Myth – lasers work only on top skin surface
That would be true if your area of problem is scars and blemishes which require surface level treatment only. But treatments like spider vein reduction and body sculpting, which is unwanted body fat removal, lasers dig deep into the skin to get the work done. The penetration depends on the wavelength of the light used.

Debunking fear. Myth – I will get cancer post laser treatment
Most people stay away from the laser skin treatment believing they will end up having cancer if they undergo it. But, this is not true in any sense whatsoever. The wavelengths of light used are operated under safe zone eliminating any possibility of harmful radiation.
